Trio of key Giants ruled questionable

New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Burress has missed practice all week with a serious right ankle sprain. He went to see a specialist earlier in the week and is likely a game-time decision for the 1-2 Giants.

On a positive note, running back Brandon Jacobs, who was expected to miss at least four weeks with a sprained MCL in his right knee that was suffered in Week 1, is listed as questionable. He participated in full practice Friday.

That's good news, because his backup Derrick Ward is also questionable with an ankle injury, but his outlook might not be as positive. Ward missed practice on Friday after going through limited practice on Thursday.

New York head coach Tom Coughlin, though, expects Ward to be ready to play.
