The New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles have released their official Wednesday practice injury report:
The big news on the day was that the Giants officially placed center David Baas on season-ending IR. Baas’ return to the Giants lineup lasted only one series against the Vikings on Monday. Baas will be replaced by Jim Cordle at center.
Once again, David Wilson is already listed as ‘out’ for Sunday’s match-up against the Eagles. Brandon Jacobs (hamstring), Spencer Paysinger (ankle), and Shaun Rogers (knee) all sat out practice today.
Jayron Hosley (hamstring), Adrien Robinson (foot), Terrell Thomas (knee), and Corey Webster (groin) were all limited. The last couple of weeks Thomas has taken the first day of practice completely off, so this might be a good sign of the progress of his surgically repaired knee. Although Webster played in his first game in weeks on Monday, he was only on the field for three snaps, as his groin injury is still severely limiting him. Thomas was only on the field for 14 snaps.
Rookie Cooper Taylor, who has battled a shoulder injury, was a full participant in practice today.
The Eagles are a bit more banged up than they were for their last meeting against the Giants a few weeks ago. Bradley Fletcher (knee), Nick Foles (concussion), and Jake Knott (hamstring) were all unable to practice. Foles, who had started the last couple of games for the Eagles while Mike Vick was still nursing an injury he suffered during the last game against the Giants, will almost certainly be unable to play on Sunday.
Patrick Chung (shoulder), Donnie Jones (left foot), Jason Peters (shoulder/finger), and Cedric Thornton (knee) were all limited. If Jason Peters isn’t at full strength on Sunday that would be a huge advantage to the Giants defensive line.
Chris Polk (shoulder) and Michael Vick (hamstring) were full participants in practice. Vick is still nursing the hamstring injury that he initially suffered in the second quarter of the game against the Giants. Vick is expected to start Sunday, but I highly doubt he will be able to make it through a whole game, especially considering how fragile he has been the last few years.
Overall, the Giants injury list is starting to slim down a bit, while the Eagles are definitely a lot more banged up than they were in the first meeting.
