As you could tell last week, Manning doesn't need a whole lot of physical practice during the week in order to perform well on Sunday. He said he could have played the whole game last week, if necessary, so there's no reason at all to doubt that he won't also be able to go the full 60 Sunday in New Orleans.
"I feel a lot better," said Manning, who's dealing with an injured right foot. "It was a great practice today; did everything I wanted to do. So I'm feeling a lot better and moving around and excited about where I am."
TE Kevin Boss, who missed the Oakland game with an ankle injury, returned to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday. "I went out there and I was trying to get as many reps as I could," Boss said. "I think it is better than I thought it would be."
S C.C. Brown practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday with a shoulder injury he suffered last Sunday against the Raiders. Brown has been playing well at starting free safety for Kenny Phillips, who is out for the season with a knee injury.
RB Ahmad Bradshaw, as expected, didn't practice on Wednesday. For the past couple weeks the Giants have sat Bradshaw out on Wednesday and Thursday to rest his nagging ankle/foot injury. However, he's been able to practice on Friday and play on Sunday each week.
CB Aaron Ross missed practice entirely on Wednesday, as his hamstring continues to delay his 2009 playing debut. Ross looked close to returning to action but suffered a setback two weeks back. There's no word on when Ross will finally be able to practice fully.
