 ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress practiced on Tuesday for the first time since spraining his right ankle on Aug. 2.
``He looked pretty good,'' coach Tom Coughlin said after the workout at the University at Albany. ``It's good to have him on the field working with the quarterbacks, and I think he feels pretty good after practice.''
Burress, who had 63 catches and a career-high 10 touchdowns last season, made a nice one-handed reception of Eli Manning's pass midway through the workout. He also showed good agility, catching another Manning pass and getting past cornerback Gerrick McPhearson with a quick cut and run.
Pro Bowl tight end Jeremy Shockey didn't practice because of tightness in his hamstring, and Coughlin didn't know when he would return to practice.
Second-year receiver Sinorice Moss is going to be sidelined until at least Thursday. He sprained an ankle last week and didn't play in the 13-12 win over Baltimore on Sunday.
Rookie Steve Smith returned to practice Tuesday despite suffering a concussion while catching the only touchdown pass Sunday. He was elbowed in the head on the play.
``I remember going to the sidelines and talking to the guys,'' said Smith, this year's second-round draft pick. ``I remember the catch, but nothing after that. I don't remember how I got to the sidelines.''
With starting cornerback Sam Madison sidelined with a hamstring injury, Corey Webster worked with the first team and top draft pick Aaron Pierce continued as the nickel back.
Seven-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Strahan is still deciding whether to play or retire after 14 seasons, his agent, Tony Agnone, said Tuesday in an e-mail.
Strahan has missed 26 days of camp. The NFL's single-season sack record holder is being fined $14,288 for each day missed. His total is now $371,488.
