 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, less than an hour after coach Tom Coughlin said a persistent ankle injury would prevent him from working out.
The injury has prevented Burress from practicing almost the entire first half of the season, and the routine did not appear likely to change with the Giants (6-2) coming off a bye week.
But Burress approached Coughlin after the morning walkthrough and asked if he could try to practice for the first time since Sept. 12.
``He went out with the intent of going through the individual drills,'' Coughlin said. ``He felt good after those, and we let him run one of every three or four plays for the first half of practice. He did well working under some limitations, like no jumping.''
The team teased Burress during the workout.
``The first ball I caught in practice, all my teammates started clapping,'' said Burress, who has caught 37 passes for 564 yards and a team-high eight touchdowns. ``I guess they got a big kick out of that and it was kind of funny.''
With a week off because of the bye, Burress felt that Wednesday would be a good day to get some work with quarterback Eli Manning prior to Sunday's showdown with the Dallas Cowboys (7-1).
``I did all the new plays, the wrinkles in the offense, some new formations and things like that,'' Burress said. ``I was mixing it up, going in and out and running some of the plays I thought it was important for me to be in and some of the plays that we'll be running this week.''
Burress spent the bye week undergoing rehabilitation for his ankle.
``It's getting a little stronger,'' he said. ``Hopefully, it can keep getting better as the season goes on. All I can really do is keep rehabbing and hope it keeps getting better.''
Halfback Derrick Ward (ankle and groin) and rookie receiver Steve Smith (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday.
