Short, listed as questionable, is expected to be joined in the starting lineup by Osi Umenyiora, who also practiced all week.
It remains doubtful that Michael Strahan will be back by Sunday, although he’s made plenty of progress and likely will return next Sunday in Carolina.
Of the rest of New York’s extensive list of questionable players, Carlos Emmons and Gibril Wilson are probably going to play and Sam Madison appears to have an outside shot. Corey Webster likely will be held out again and your guess is as good as any regarding Sinorice Moss. Moss told TGI Thursday that he felt much better and was hopeful of returning against Dallas.
