Early practice report: Bradshaw works out

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) was doing some work during the portion of practice open to the media. The running back, who is on a once a week practice schedule, did not practice Wednesday or Thursday.

Defensive tackle Linval Joseph (knee) and safety Kenny Phillips (knee) also appeared to be getting in some work. Joseph has not practiced this week while Phillips, who has missed the last six games, has been limited both days.

Wide receiver Domenik Hixon (ankle) and linebacker Jacquian Williams (knee) were both in the bike area. Hixon has not practiced all week and is likely not going to play Sunday, while Williams absence Friday makes it seem like he might not go.

Linebacker Keith Rivers (calf/knee), center David Baas (ankle/elbow), safety Tyler Sash (ankle) and right guard Chris Snee (ankle) were practicing.
