Lughead Posted July 28, 2008 Share Posted July 28, 2008 from Mike G: NY Giants: Burress' ankle injury a new one; Manningham hurt by Mike Garafolo/The Star-Ledger Monday July 28, 2008, 11:02 AM ALBANY, N.Y. - Giants coach Tom Coughlin, in his first meeting with a group of reporters since Plaxico Burress was examined by a team doctor, said the veteran wide receiver is suffering from a different right ankle ailment than the torn deltoid ligament than hampered him last year. "This is different. It's not the same problem," Coughlin said after this morning's practice. "I just think it's a little bit of structure and something he's going to have to deal with. ... It's not the same. Same ankle, but not the same injury." Still, Coughlin didn't seem too nervous about the diagnosis (he never did say specifically what the problem is) and is confident Burress will be back on the field within the next few days. "He had some soreness. Hopefully, by mid-week he'll do something," Coughlin said. "It's a situation where he has orthotics and he really has to wear them. That's going to help and hopefully the soreness will be gone so he can work this week." Burress got some company on the sideline this morning when rookie WR Mario Manningham was yanked from practice with a quad injury. Perhaps it's a lingering effect of a quad injury that cut his rookie minicamp short. "He's got some quad soreness," Coughlin said. "About halfway through the individual (drills), Ronnie (Barnes) said he really thought he had to shut himself down. I don't know the extent of it. We'll have to wait and see." More on that later perhaps. And the morning practice report in a few. MG Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
