Editor's Note: Below are the pool reports filed Saturday from team practices.
Giants practice report
Wide receiver Plaxico Burress, unable to practice this week due to ankle and knee injuries, participated in the walk-through without limitation.
"I think he's a little bit better today," Coughlin said. "He gets a little bit better each day, and hopefully we'll be able to have some further improvement tomorrow."
The walk-through began with an abbreviated stretching session, followed by special teams, defense and offense.
Team president John Mara and general manager Jerry Reese watched from the sideline under sunny skies at the Arizona Cardinals' practice facility in Tempe.

Patriots practice report
The atmosphere was more family picnic than Super Bowl preparation for New England on Saturday as the Patriots enjoyed a brief stop at the University of Phoenix Stadium. The team did not have a walk-through, as promised, instead spending a fun hour with family, interrupted only by a brief team photograph session.
"This is what we usually do," said coach Bill Belichick, who patiently posed for photographs with players and their families dressed in his signature grey sweatshirt with cut down sleeves along with a white visor. "The first year was a little different because of the short week. It was just a one-week Super Bowl. The last three, it's been good. It gives the families a fun day."
Belichick said every player was present and accounted for on Saturday. He was asked for a final thought on the game.
"We're playing a good team," he said. "We're as ready as we're going to be. It's time to go play."
