EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -New York Giants cornerback Aaron Ross returned to practice on Wednesday and said he would be ready to play in the NFC title game against the Green Bay Packers.
Ross had to leave the NFC semifinal in Dallas on Sunday after his right shoulder twice popped out of its socket. The first-round pick from Texas plans to wear a harness on Sunday.
``If I have to make a tackle with my right shoulder I will,'' Ross said after practice.
Cornerbacks Sam Madison (stomach) and Kevin Dockery (hip) did not practice, although Madison took part in some individual drills. The starter was sidelined for playoff wins over Tampa Bay and the Cowboys.
Receiver Plaxico Burress (ankle) and tackle Kareem McKenzie (ankle) practiced on a limited basis.
The Giants practiced in Giants Stadium, where the temperature was about 40 degrees.
The forecast for the title game in Green Bay calls for a game-time temperature of about 4 degrees.
``You don't worry about the weather,'' Giants quarterback Eli Manning said. ``There is no point in being concerned about it. You wear some warm clothes and you wear a hand warmer. It is still all going to come down to how your team performs on the field.''
Manning does not intend to wear gloves in the game.
