"He did everything today, he took every snap, so I will check with him when I go in, but I think he certainly is on his way," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said, adding that he expects Pierce to play on Sunday in Detroit.
Pierce was listed as questionable for the game along with receiver Plaxico Burress, who has been bothered by a sprained right ankle all season but has not missed any games.
