New York Daily News: Giants HC Coughlin sounded very optimistic
that RB Brandon Jacobs, TE Kevin Boss, DT Barry Cofield and CB
Aaron Ross will all be back on the field in time for the Giants'
playoff opener in 2 weeks. All 4 of those starters were forced to
sit out the Giants' regular-season finale in Minnesota yesterday.
Jacobs and Cofield are battling knee injuries and Boss and Ross
are battling concussions. Ross, who had a severe concussion and
didn't even make the trip to Minnesota, seemed "very good" today,
Coughlin said, and he would've been able to practice if the Giants
didn't have the day off. Boss was doing "better" too, Coughlin
said. And Cofield said after yesterday's game that he was healthy
enough to play. Jacobs is the biggest wild-card, though. Asked if
he'll be ready, Coughlin said "I hope so. That's what we're
leaning towards. We're counting on that taking place, certainly."
That was a very optimistic answer, but it was something less than
an enthusiastic "Yes!" "He's making progress and this rest will do
him good," Coughlin said. "I'd like to see him with solid practice
time as well. I'm not sure if we're going to be able to do that.
That would be the goal."
