C-Web, Mario Miss Practice

Kareem McKenzie, as expected, was just one of four Giants to miss practice on Thursday. McKenzie will be out Monday night in Washington, DC and will be replaced at RT by rookie Will Beatty.

*In addition to McKenzie, three other players did not practice Thursday: cornerback Corey Webster (knee), running back Ahmad Bradshaw (ankles/knee) and wide receiver Mario Manningham (illness).

Webster also hurt his knee against the Eagles, though Coach Tom Coughlin said he was "day-to-day." Asked if Webster may return to the practice field this week, Coughlin said, "I'm hoping." Webster said this afternoon that he expects to play.

Coughlin did not say who would play cornerback if Webster is sidelined. Aaron Ross, the starting corner last year opposite Webster, has played safety since returning to action last month after missing the first nine games with a hamstring injury. Coughlin didn't directly answer a question about Ross' possible return to cornerback.

Bradshaw has seldom practiced early in the week this season because of his ongoing ankle and foot issues.

The only other player on the Giants' injury list is Eli Manning, who practiced fully and whose foot injury has not caused him to miss any practice or game time in several weeks.

For the Redskins, right tackle Stephon Heyer (knee) did not practice. Defensive tackles Albert Haynesworth (ankle) and Cornelius Griffin (shoulder), cornerback DeAngelo Hall (knee), safety Kareem Moore (ankle) and fullback Mike Sellers (quad) were limited.
