Antrel Rolle says team is flashing energy in practice

After the disappointing loss to the Washington Redskins in which they showed little fire at times, the Giants seemed to be motivated during today’s practice. During the portion open to the media (individual drills only), the players and coaches were energetic and encouraging of one another.

It apparently continued for the entire session.

“Everyone was flying around. The energy level was top-notch,” safety Antrel Rolle said.

“That’s something that we need to have day in and day out and not let it fade away no matter what the circumstances are.”

Rolle indicated there was a new message being spread this week.

“Just more energy and everybody hold everyone else more accountable,” he said.

“If you need to pick another guy up a little bit, pick him up. If you need to critique him a little bit, that’s fine, go and critique him. But we need to as a collective effort and that’s something (Coughlin has) been putting a lot of emphasis on this week.”

 In a development that should please Rolle, who said everyone needs to practice, RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) put in limited time today after Coughlin indicated he wouldn’t work at all.

Bradshaw had been practicing only one day per week as he manages a stress fracture in his foot.

Also likely pleasing Rolle was DE Justin Tuck’s practicing and not being listed on the injury report.
