Andrews back in uniform

T Shawn Andrews was back on the field wearing No. 73, at least for the stretching portion of practice. He last played at left tackle against the Eagles, but experienced back pain that forced him to visit the hospital in the middle of the night later that week.

He worked out individually on the sideline after the Giants began practicing special teams.

The Giants had a full compliment out there for stretching. That include WR Steve Smith (pectoral), who was out a little bit later than the rest of the crew, WR Hakeem Nicks (leg), RB Ahmad Bradshaw (wrist), DB/KR Will Blackmon (chest), S Brian Jackson (hand), C Shaun O'Hara (ankle), DE Osi Umenyiora (knee) and T David Diehl (hamstring).

As for Bradshaw, he appeared to be checking out his left wrist during stretching. Players were on the far opposite side of the field from where we were standing, but that's what I saw through binoculars. We could find out more during the locker room availability later.
