The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys have released their official Friday practice injury report and game statuses:
For the second straight day no Giants’ player missed practice. However, despite practicing at least partly all week, Corey Webster (groin/ankle) will miss his third straight game.
Hakeem Nicks (abdomen) and Brandon Jacobs (knee) are both listed as questionable. Although they are both listed as questionable, neither is expected to miss Sunday’s big match-up against the Cowboys.
Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder), Terrell Thomas (knee), John Connor (hip), and Trumaine McBride (hip) are all listed as probable and should be active on Sunday.
For the Cowboys, they have three players listed as out for Sunday, Sean Lee (hamstring), DeVonte Holloman (neck), and Justin Durant (hamstring). All three are linebackers, so look for the Giants to try and attack that part of the Cowboys defense.
DeMarcus Ware (thigh), Morris Claiborne (hamstring), and Jason Hatcher (neck) are all listed as probable. Claiborne has missed the Cowboys previous two games. Look for Eli Manning to test the Cowboys shaky second year cornerback early and often on Sunday.
There is absolutely no doubt that Sunday’s game is a most win for the New York Giants. The Giants are the healthier of the two teams, despite the Cowboys coming off of a bye week. Playing at home, and with a fairly healthy squad, the Giants need to come out on fire Sunday. I expect this game to be physical and for there to be a lot of points put on the board, for both teams.
