Wednesday Notes

The team has a bye week and the players will get a full three days off.

The Giants practiced today and will work again tomorrow before taking a three-day bye weekend break.

"We tried to work on some fundamental things," head coach Jim Fassel said. "On offense we need to work on the red zone, and on defense I want to work on third downs a little bit more.

"There are a lot of things you can accomplish in a bye week. One of them is getting some guys healthy, and I think that's coming at the right time for us. It's a chance to get some guys some work."

Kerry Collins did not throw today and will not tomorrow.

"We've been at it a long time, we have many more weeks to go and he throws the ball a lot," Fassel said. "If it doesn't hurt his rhythm, which I don't think it will, he can come out here and do the run game and work with the backs - it's a precautionary thing. I've done that with quarterbacks before. It lets him rest his arm. And it gives us a chance to get Jesse Palmer and Jason Garrett some work."
