Giants vs Bears: Wednesday Injury Report & Game Statuses

Per Giants.com the New York Giants have released their official injury report for today’s practice, including game statuses for tomorrow night’s game:


The big news for the Giants is starting running back, David Wilson, will miss tomorrow’s game because of the neck injury he suffered this past Sunday against the Eagles. This will leave the recently signed Brandon Jacobs as the lead back for the Giants. Jacobs has 22 rush attempts on the season and is averaging a paltry 2.2 yard per carry.

Corey Webster, David Baas, Jayron Hosley, Adrien Robinson, and Cooper Taylor. For the third straight week the Giants will be dangerously thin at cornerback, so look for the Bears high-flying pass attack led by Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, and former Giant Martellus Bennett to take advantage.

Rookie defensive end, Damontre Moore, continues to battle injuries and is listed as doubtful with a hamstring issue.

Brandon Myers, Linval Joseph, and Louis Murphy are all listed as questionable and will most likely be game time decisions. If Myers is unable to play, the Giants will be thin at tight end, which will make watching Martellus Bennett’s success on the other side of the field even harder to swallow.

Zak DeOssie, Mark Herzlich, and Terrell Thomas are all listed as probable; however, Thomas and Herzlich both only played one snap last Sunday against the Eagles, so their involvement in the defense might not be very significant.

The Bears have not listed the game statuses for their injured players yet, besides Nate Collins, who will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL last Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Martellus Bennett and top cornerback Charles Tillman are believed to be game-time decisions. I would expect Bennett, who played through knee injuries last season, would do everything in his power to be on the field tomorrow against his former team.

Once again, the Giants are heading into a game extremely banged up. They are playing on a short week, coming off another embarrassing performance. To make matters even worse, they have to travel to Chicago. All signs point to another big blue loss tomorrow night.
