Jeremy Shockey practiced on Wednesday, two days after X-rays on his sore ankle and foot came back negative. The Giants officially listed Shockey as probable and it's hard to believe that he won't play Sunday in Atlanta. Mostly due to multiple injuries, Shockey has basically been a non-factor in the Giants offense in recent weeks. Perhaps, New York should give him a week or two to rest up so the Giants can get the dangerous receiver of old back into their offense.
"He is sore," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "And he will have some issues, but hopefully it will be a progressive thing where the soreness gets less and less each day. Like all players, it's important to practice to be ready to play. So Jeremy will do as much as he can do."
Safety James Butler (knee) returned to practice and is listed as questionable. The best bet is that Butler misses one more week, then returns to action in Dallas on Oct. 23.
Linebacker Carlos Emmons (pec) and wide receiver Sinorice Moss (quad) did not participate in the team portion of practice and are doubtful. The Dallas game is the realistic earliest for either of those two to return, with Moss highly unlikely to play for another few weeks.
Running back Derrick Ward (foot) remains out.
