Giants still upset with Jets

Barrett Green summed up the Giants attitude toward the Jets aggressiveness when he said he was "pissed off" at their actions and dubbed their all-out efforts during Saturday's joint practice sessions "classless."

While many other Giants were less open with their thoughts, it was clear that Big Blue wasn't expecting what was coming from the Jets - and none too happy about it either...

After Monday's morning practice, coach Tom Coughlin was non-committal when asked if the skirmishes would prevent the Jets from returning to Albany for the third consecutive season in 2006.

"We make those decisions in the offseason once we get ready to plan training camp," Coughlin said. "We are not ready to plan training camp right now. We're in one."...

Eleven players missed the morning practice with assorted injuries, though Coughlin stressed that most of them should soon return to work.

Those sitting out were cornerback Will Allen (groin); safety Curry Burns (concussion); linebackers Barrett Green (knee), Nick Greisen (hamstring), Reggie Torbor (hip flexor strain) and T.J. Hollowell (ankle sprain); Jeremy Shockey (hamstring); wide receiver Jamaar Taylor (hip flexor strain); defensive end Eric Moore (knee sprain); and offensive linemen Wayne Lucier (calf strain) and Lewis Kelly (groin).

"We thought (Allen) was going to be able to play his way through, which he did do on Friday and practiced the whole practice, then all of a sudden he wasn't able to go," Coughlin said. "I don't know how soon he will be ready, but he sure needs to be out there.

"We had Shockey and Greisen in the very beginning of the morning practice; they both have very mild strains, so I don't expect them to be out long. Reggie Torbor is a little bit of a hip-flexor; he'll make it back sooner rather than later. Taylor is close to being back, and hopefully within the next day or so he will be back out here."

Coughlin was asked whether Green, who had offseason surgery to repair a torn ACL, is coming along slower than anticipated.

"No…he is very anxious to go and participate, but he did have some swelling so we had to slow him down," the coach said.

Green told TGI that he feels he's actually ahead of schedule at this point in camp and that the coaches are just being a little extra cautious with him...

Defensive back Ahmad Treaudo was waived. To take his place on the roster, the Giants re-signed cornerback Michael Bragg, who was waived on July 29.
