Aaron Ross Back To Practice; Full Giants Injury Report

The Giants today welcomed back Aaron Ross to practice as they began preparations for their Sunday night game in Indianapolis against the Colts.

Ross practiced without limitations after missing the season-opening victory over Carolina with a plantar fascia injury suffered in an Aug. 21 preseason game vs. Pittsburgh. Ross and starting cornerbacks Corey Webster and Terrell Thomas face a huge challenge in defending against the Colts’ high-power passing attack, which is led by Peyton Manning and receivers Reggie Wayne, Pierre Garcon and tight end Dallas Clark.

Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (ankle injury sustained vs. Carolina) and defensive end Osi Umenyiora (knee) will not practice today, though Coughlin said he hopes both will be on the field tomorrow. Linebacker/special teams standout Chase Blackburn (knee), Phillip Dillard (hamstring) and cornerback Bruce Johnson (knee) also did not practice. Safety Michael Johnson did not practice, though the team said it was not for injury reasons.

Tom Coughlin said today that tight end Kevin Boss, who sustained a concussion vs. the Panthers, will not play in Indianapolis.

Tackle Will Beatty will undergo surgery tomorrow to repair a broken bone in his foot. The Giants will then have a better idea how long the second-year pro will be sidelined. Shawn Andrews is the backup tackle in Beatty’s absence.

Linebacker Gerris Wilkinson practiced fully.
