The New York Giants have released their Friday practice injury report and game statuses for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers:
The only Giants’ player already ruled out for Sunday is Corey Webster. This is no surprise as Webster has been unable to practice due to a lingering groin & ankle injuries.
Jason Pierre-Paul, who was unable to practice the last two days, was able to do a limited workout today. He’s listed as questionable for Sunday and is a true game-time decision. My hunch is that he will sit out this week.
Brandon Jacobs was also limited in practice today and is listed as questionable for Sunday. I have a feeling Jacobs will play Sunday, unless the Giants want to activate Michael Cox to return kickoffs.
Terrell Thomas (knee) and Bear Pascoe (ankle) were both limited in practice, but are listed as probable. I expect both to be suited up on Sunday.
For the Packers, Aaron Rodgers (broken collarbone) & Casey Heyward (hamstring) are ruled out for Sunday, neither of which is a surprise. Rush linebacker, Nick Perry, is doubtful with a foot/ankle injury. Right tackle, Don Barclay, and linebacker, Andy Mulumba, are both questionable, although neither practiced today, so don’t be surprised if they don’t play on Sunday.
Johnny Jolly (groin), Mike Neal (abdomen), Evan Dietrich-Smith (knee), Ryan Pickett (knee), and Sam Shields (hamstring) are all listed as probable. Cornerback Shields is a new entry to the injury report and did not practice today. He’s listed as probable, but keep an eye on him on Sunday to see if he is limited at all with his hamstring injury.
As you can see, the Packers injury list is gigantic, including big name stars like Aaron Rodgers. The Giants are as healthy as they have been all season, and should get a victory over a banged up Green Bay squad on Sunday afternoon in the Meadowlands.
