Reggie Torbor talked to Mathias Kiwanuka in the immediate aftermath of the injured strongside…
Jacobs, Gibril Miss Practice
As for the much-maligned RB spot, as expected Brandon Jacobs did not practice. Both Coughlin and Jacobs were coy about the running back's chances of playing against Minnesota.
"I would imagine it is going to be day-to-day," Coughlin said. "If not, it is week-to-week."
"I've never had this injury before, so we're just going day-to-day," said Jacobs, who pulled up in the third quarter of Sunday's victory in Detroit. "It's a little tight, but it's nothing people should be worried about.
"I don't know what their plans are. I'm just doing as they say – staying off of it and trying to stretch it a little bit, until they give me more direction."
Derrick Ward, who has rushed for 448 yards but has missed the last few weeks with groin and ankle injuries, is hopeful he will suit up Sunday.
"Hopefully, tomorrow I'll increase my workload in the team periods (in practice)," Ward said. "I'll see how it feels then. If I keep progressing, Sunday is looking very likely."
Finally, Coughlin said Reggie Torbor is working with the first team defense at strong side linebacker in place of Mathias Kiwanuka, who is out for the season with a fractured fibula.
"Reggie will work with the first defense and Gerris (Wilkinson) will know the position as well," Coughlin said.
