Rookie linebacker Jonathan Goff, who hadn't practiced since fracturing a transverse process in his back in the preseason opener in Detroit on Aug. 7, participated fully in practice. But that doesn't guarantee he will play in St. Louis.
"We have to look at him," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "He has to practice. He is limited, but to have him out there is what the objective is. Let him have a normal rotation, let him work with the scout team, let him go through individuals, get him back on track."
After practice, Goff obviously said he was happy to be back out there and was hoping to return to game action as soon as possible.
Three Giants players did not practice on Wednesday: defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka (ankle), cornerback Terrell Thomas (hamstring) and kicker Lawrence Tynes (knee).
"We expect Mathias to be ready to go (Thursday)," Coughlin said.
Good news, indeed.
