ALBANY, N.Y. — When we weren't asking any Giant who would stop about the Michael Strahan situation…
Wilkinson Among Walking Wounded
Wilkinson was playing behind new weakside linebacker Kawika Mitchell. In his absence, Tyson Smith and Barry Robertson will take snaps with the second-team defense. Perhaps more significantly, Wilkinson's injury could affect the coaches' thinking if they consider moving Mathias Kiwanuka back to end should Michael Strahan retire. If Kiwanuka returned to end, Mitchell could shift to strongside linebacker and Wilkinson could step in on the weak side.
"You have kind of a two-way pull here," Tom Coughlin said. "The intent was to always have Kiwanuka at linebacker. But there are other factors involved there, too. And now with Wilkinson, we're just going to have to see how it plays out. I'm not going to speculate on that right now."...
Elsewhere on the injury front, tight end Jeremy Shockey missed practice with upper leg soreness, which also caused him to miss a day last week. Wide receiver Plaxico Burress (ankle), defensive tackle Fred Robbins (calf strain), cornerback Aaron Ross (glute), safety Michael Stone (hip flexor) and center Todd Londot (high ankle sprain) missed practice...
Safety Gibril Wilson returned to work after leaving yesterday's practice with back spasms.
