It's normal when you come out and you need to make some corrections to be aggressive about making those corrections and I think we certainly were. But we had some people on the ground today, which we can't afford to do. We had to talk about that a little bit. You don't want to take away their aggressiveness, but you have to be smart."…
Four players who missed Saturday night's game returned to practice today: Wide receiver Amani Toomer (knee), defensive tackle Fred Robbins (calf) and cornerbacks Aaron Ross (gluteus) and E.J. Underwood (hip).
Those who missed practice were wide receiver Plaxico Burress (ankle), tight end Kevin Boss (shoulder), wide receiver Marco Thomas (groin), kicker Lawrence Tynes (calf), safety Michael Stone (hip), linebacker Gerris Wilkinson (knee), center Todd Londot (ankle), long-snapper Ryan Kuehl (calf) and cornerback Travonti Johnson (hip).
