An unhappy Tom Coughlin took the podium on Wednesday afternoon for his weekly press conference, and his message was clear: "2-2 is 2-2 and not where we hoped to be. But it's done. It's over. It's time to move on." And move on he did, right into the vast sea of New York Giants injuries that grew yet again this week.

There were several new additions to the growing pre-practice injury report. They included Kenny Phillips (knee), Ramses Barden (concussion), Rocky Bernard (quad), David Baas (hand), Chris Snee (hip), Keith Rivers (hammy), Antrel Rolle (knee), Corey Webster (hand), Hakeem Nicks (knee, foot), Michael Boley (hip), Michael Coe (hammy), David Diehl (knee) and Jayron Hosley (hammy).

Of the 13 listed on the pre-practice injury report, Coughlin says at least seven will not practice. They include Rocky Bernard, David Baas, Kenny Phillips Hakeem Nicks, Michael Boley, Keith Rivers and Chris Snee. Meanwhile, Jayron Hosley and David Diehl will do individual work and "hopefully more."

As far as an update on Nicks, Coughlin was hesitant to give one. He said the swelling is down, but would not commit to the wide receiver practicing on Thursday. He also would not detail Nicks' knee injury and whether or not there was any structural damage.

Barden, meanwhile, was diagnosed with a concussion on Tuesday after complaining of a headache. It was allegedly suffered late in the Philadelphia Eagles game when he was hit in the back of the head. The head coach wouldn't dive into any additional detail, making it sound like it may have been from an illegal hit.

As for the Cleveland Browns and their game this Sunday…

"Don't be misled by Cleveland's record. They played tough in all of their games," Coughlin said, noting he'll remind some of his more veteran players what happened the last time these two teams met.


Finally, the coach noted that this team will not point fingers. Each player accepts responsibility for their own mistakes and the object is to get better and fix what's wrong as opposed to placing blame.
