Head coach Tom Coughlin, along with offensive coordinator Dan Gilbride provided news and updates on a black and Big Blue team.

Reports on left tackle David Diehl's injury (hip/hamstring) were encouraging, but Coach Coughlin was not ready to slot him in for Sunday's game.

"Diehl has been getting a couple of snaps, he did individuals, got a few snaps. It's going to be a process," Coughlin said. "We are going to have to see how he is today, how he is tomorrow and the whole deal."

Coughlin is pleased with wide out Steve Smith's progress as he recovers from a torn pectoral muscle.

"Limited {in practice}. He took a couple of routes as a scout squad player," Coughlin said.

Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride indicated that Smith will likely see action this Sunday.
