KEYS TO THE GAME
Giants: C Shaun O'Hara (ankle/Achilles) remains unable to practice. Coughlin said that there was nothing new to report on O'Hara, who earlier this week went to see a foot specialist in Manhattan. Coughlin did say that O'Hara appeared more spry than he's been since the injury first occurred, but he added that it would take "something very good that would have to happen in a short amount of time" for O'Hara to be in the lineup on Sunday night. ... LB Phillip Dillard (hamstring), who returned to practice Wednesday, continued to see his snaps increase on Thursday. Coughlin said that Dillard is coming along but that he wasn't quite sure if the rookie was ready to contribute on Sundays just yet. ... WR Mario Manningham (concussion) returned to practice Thursday after missing Wednesday. Manningham told reporters that there was no doubt in his mind that he'd be ready to go Sunday night. ... PR/KR Darius Reynaud (illness), who missed Wednesday's practice, returned to practice Thursday. ... DT Rocky Bernard (back) missed his second straight practice Thursday. If Bernard can't go on Sunday night, presumably rookie DT Linval Joseph would get to play in his first regular season NFL game. ... LB Keith Bulluck (turf toe), who missed Wednesday's practice, tried to return to practice Thursday but was still experiencing some discomfort in his toe.
