Wake-up call: Giants Friday plan


INDIANAPOLIS -- What to expect from the Giants:

Work schedule: The Giants return to the University of Indianapolis for their final practice before Super Bowl XLVI. They will concentrate on short yardage, red zone and goal-line work. Friday practices are typically shorter than Wednesday and Thursday. There also will be a short walk-through on Saturday.

Media obligations: The players and assistant coaches are done with the media until after the game. On this day, the spotlight shines on the head coaches. Tom Coughlin will address the media at 9:30 a.m. from a hotel ballroom in downtown Indianapolis.

Storylines: Can RB Ahmad Bradshaw make it three days in a row? Bradshaw (foot) was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but the mere fact he was on the field was a pleasant surprise for the Giants. Coughlin said Thursday he couldn't remember the last time Bradshaw practiced on back-to-back days ... This is the media's fifth straight day of access to Coughlin. Enough is enough ... unless he's willing to offer a guarantee. Right. You'd have a better chance of seeing Madonna and Victor Cruz together on "Dancing with the Stars."
