The Giants Unlucky 13: Early Injury Report


While we could all probably recite these names by heart, let’s run through the early injury report for the New York Giants:

Barden (concussion)

Bennett (Knee)

Bernard (Quad)

Blackburn (hip)

Boley (hip)

Brown (concussion)

Diehl (knee)

Hosley (hamstring)

Nicks (foot/knee)

Phillips (knee)

Rivers (hamstring)

Rolle (knee)

Webster (hand/hamstring)

WHile it seems bad luck to have your last name begin with a “B” on this team, remember this is the new NFL, the non-contact practice NFL where meetings and walkthroughs are more important than actual full speed practice.  All these guys will do individual drills or conditioning/rehab all week, and some won;t “Practice” all year, but will play in games.

Look for Rolle, Webster, Barden, Bennett, Blackburn, and Boley to be active Sunday with an eye towards Nicks making a return also.
