11/30/2006 - NFL Michael Strahan New York Giants + more

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants defensive end
Michael Strahan did not participate in practice on Thursday, a day
after he took part in his first individual drills since spraining
his right foot against Houston four weeks ago.

Strahan is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the
Dallas Cowboys.

"It's not a setback," coach Tom Coughlin said. "This was the
week that actually he was going to get involved doing things. He
tried it yesterday and that's about where it is. He has more time
to go."

In other injury updates, cornerback Sam Madison (hamstring),
defensive end Osi Umenyiora (hip flexor) and linebacker Brandon
Short (quadriceps), each of whom has missed most or all of the last
four games, practiced for a second straight day on Thursday. All
are questionable for Sunday.

Linebacker Antonio Pierce (knee), safety Gibril Wilson
(shoulder) and linebacker Carlos Emmons (groin) returned to
practice after missing Wednesday's session. Pierce is probable,
while Wilson and Emmons are questionable for Sunday's game.
Cornerback Corey Webster (toe) missed practice for a second
straight day and is listed as still questionable.
