EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey made it through his second-straight full practice Friday, but his coach remained noncommittal about whether the Pro Bowl player would be on the field Sunday.

Coach Tom Coughlin said Shockey made good progress this week but stopped short of saying he’d play in the NFC Wild Card game at Philadelphia on Sunday. Shockey is still listed as questionable.

Shockey was hurt late in the fourth quarter against New Orleans on Dec. 24 on a hit by Saints safety Jay Bellamy.

During practice on Friday, Shockey exhibited a barely noticeable limp while jogging through plays with the first-team offense.

Shockey leads the Giants with 66 catches for 623 yards this season despite being hampered by ankle and foot injuries since September. He missed last week’s regular season finale at Washington.

Also for the Giants, guard Rich Seubert (shin) was upgraded from questionable to probable. Cornerback Kevin Dockery, who is tied for the team lead in interceptions with six other players with two, missed practice with an ankle injury and was listed as questionable for Sunday.
