Late last week LB Mark Herzlich said if the Giants beat the Packers
on Sunday he hoped to return to practice this week. It wasn't a
certainty, but Herzlich, who was the only Giant not to make the trip to
Lambeau, was optimistic after working on his ankle pain-free.



Today he's practicing for the first time since fracturing his ankle
against the Saints on Nov. 28, which forced him to miss the last seven
games. Herzlich, who had earned a starting spot when he was injured, was
participating in the routine drills with his fellow linebackers without
any sign of hindrance during the portion of the session open to the
media.</p>



Herzlich's return left RB Ahmad Bradshaw as the only player sitting
out today, but that's to be expected -- Bradshaw only has only practiced
on Fridays since he has returned from a foot injury. Bradshaw was
watching practicing from a stationary bike. </p>



That means the Giants have everyone as healthy as they can get for
this late in a season and the healthiest they've been all season.</p>

The three other players on the Giants pre-practice injury report --
Justin Tuck (shoulder), Osi Umenyiora (ankle/knee) and Corey Webster
(hamstring) -- were also practicing during the portion open to the
media.


ALL IN BABY!!!!!

If he can come back and maybe pick up a step or 2 next season I cant wait to see what he can do. He always seemed to be in the right place at the right time, but just a step too slow. I feel that he can be groomed into a real nice player

I don't think defensively he will bring much of an impact but on punt and kickoff coverage is where we will see the benefit.
