Friday practice report: No JPP, Bradshaw

Jason Pierre-Paul was not with the Giants during the open portion of Friday's practice.

Pierre-Paul was limited on Thursday due to a neck injury he suffered during a practice collision. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell downplayed the injury on Thursday, though Pierre-Paul's absence Friday may mean it's more serious than Fewell indicated.

We'll hear more on this from Tom Coughlin shortly.

Also, Ahmad Bradshaw was not out there during the open portion of practice. Bradshaw suffered a cracked bone in his foot last Sunday against Miami, but a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Bradshaw should play Sunday.

WR Hakeem Nicks rode the bike on Friday morning and hasn't practiced all week, leaving his availability for Sunday's game at New England in doubt. Center David Baas, who also hasn't practiced all week due to a knee injury, was in pads and a helmet on Friday but did not appear to be active.

Tight end Bear Pascoe was limited on Thursday due to a finger injury. He was out there during the early portion on Friday. FB Henry Hynoski was not. He has been limited this week due to a neck injury. Backup lineman Stacy Andrews (back) also wasn't around during the early portion on Friday.

Lastly, Justin Tuck (groin) and Osi Umenyiora (knee) both were present on Friday.

We will have updates on the injury situation later this afternoon.
