2012 NFC Wild Card, New York Giants Injury Report: Jake Ballard Practices For First Time In Two Weeks

The New York Giants tight end situation is looking better for their playoff matchup versus the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Jake Ballard was limited today and is questionable to play on Sunday.

The Giants' starting tight end, out since suffering a knee injury against the Redskins on Dec. 18, will participate in individual drills at practice today, coach Tom Coughlin said during his morning press conference. That doesn't necessarily mean later on he'll be listed as having practiced today because it's unclear at this point if he'll do any work in team drills.

Here is the practice report for the New York Giants on Wednesday:

DID NOT PRACTICE

RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot)
LB Mark Herzlich (ankle)

LIMITED IN PRACTICE

TE Jake Ballard (knee)
RB Da'Rel Scott (knee)
Osi Umenyiora (ankle/knee)
