The New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles have released their official Thursday practice injury report:
The only two changes from yesterday’s injury report for the Giants were Spencer Paysinger (ankle) was able to practice today while Corey Webster (groin) was not able to. As I mentioned yesterday, Webster only played 3 snaps on Monday against the Vikings, so his groin is clearly still severely limiting him. If he plays on Sunday, he will likely not see many snaps as he did against the Vikings.
Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and Shaun Rogers (knee) were again unable to practice today. All signs seem to point to Jacobs getting another week off and Peyton Hillis/Michael Cox getting the start at runningback on Sunday against the Eagles. Rogers was not able to practice much last week, as is the case this week, but was able to play against the Vikings on Monday and actually had his best game as a New York Giant. His status tomorrow for Sunday’s game will be interesting.
For the Eagles, they got a big boost with all pro left tackle, Jason Peters (knee), returning as a full participant in practice. The Eagles starting cornerback, Bradley Fletcher (shoulder/finger), also returned to practice.
Michael Vick was once again a full participant in practice and everything still seems to suggest that he will be the Eagles starting quarterback on Sunday, despite Chip Kelly’s reluctance to officially name him the starter.
