The players plan to work out Friday and again next week.

For the third straight day, Manning had nothing to say. He drove off the field after the workout and did not stop to talk.

During the workout, he and Rosenfels simulated snaps and threw crossing patterns, outs and long passes to the receivers.

If there was anything that made them feel like they were back at the team’s headquarters, it was a steady wind. It knocked down some passes and made throwing others an adventure.

Nicks smiled when asked if the wind reminded him of the Meadowlands.

“That’s what we were joking about,” he said.

Nicks refused to say the lockout was bugging him.

“I am not frustrated at all, this is part of the business part of it,” he said. “I just have to make sure I am doing my part and standing on my ground.”
