Pro Sports Daily:
New York Giants cornerback Aaron Ross passed a battery of tests for a head injury and returned to practice on Wednesday.
The same can not be said for Giants running back D.J. Ware, who has dealt with concussions in the past. He has not been cleared to practice and may sit out Sunday's playoff game against the defending champion Green Bay Packers.
Both Ross and Ware suffered concussions during last Sunday's 24-2 victory over the Atlanta Falcons at MetLife Stadium.
The 20th overall pick of the 2007 draft, Ross had 60 tackles and four interceptions in 16 games this season.
