After several rough months battling injuries, Big Blue has few concerns at it begins prepping for Sunday's home game against the Atlanta Falcons. LB Jon Beason (foot/toe), LB Devon Kennard (hamstring) and P Steve Weatherford (ankle) all were set to practice Wednesday, according to coach Tom Coughlin.

Donnell helped tons of Fantasy players with his three touchdowns last week vs. the Washington Redskins. He would have helped himself, too. If he had put himself in his own lineup.
Larry Donnell benched himself in fantasy football last week in favor of Vernon Davis. His team lost by 15 pts. "Would've won...
Umenyiora says he "really can't answer that question."
Osi Umenyiora talked ... and talked ... and talked some more during his conference Wednesday with New York media. The former New York Giants defensive end is, of course, now a member of Sunday's Giants foe at MetLife Stadium, the Atlanta Falcons.
Yours truly was not listening in on the call, but without saying it Umenyiora appeared to give reporters on the call the impression he wishes he was still with the Giants. Witness these tweets:
Osi was asked a lot of questions and gave a lot of answers on his conf call....
