FORT WORTH, Texas -- Michael Boley, who had surgery on his right shoulder at the end of the Giants' season, said the injury was healing well during one of the events leading up to the Super Bowl.

The Giants linebacker is one of several who is getting medical attention well in advance of a possible lockout on March 4. Defensive end Osi Umenyiora had surgery on his hip, offensive lineman Rich Seubert on his torn patella, center Shaun O'Hara on his foot and running back Ahmad Bradshaw is expected to have his ankle scoped next week.

In the event of a lockout, players will not have access to the Giants' rehab facilities or team doctors.

Boley, who sacked Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo in Dallas last season, a hit that resulted in Romo's season-ending shoulder injury, said he was getting a lot of comments about the hit while in north Texas.
