The New York Giants and San Diego Charges have released their official Thursday practice injury reports:
The big news for today was the addition of tight end, Brandon Myers, to the injury report with a groin injury. The under performing free-agent acquisition wasn’t on yesterday’s injury report which begs the question whether this is a new injury or if he aggravated an injury he has nursed for a while.
Jason Pierre-Paul, shoulder, sat out practice once again. All signs are pointing to JPP missing his second straight game this Sunday. Brandon Jacobs also sat out practice after being limited yesterday, due to his lingering knee injury. At this point, I would be surprised if Jacobs is activated on Sunday.
In the Giants battered secondary, Terrell Thomas (knee), Trumaine McBride (groin), and Corey Webster (ankle) were all limited in practice today. Thomas has been managing his thrice surgically repaired knee all season and should be good to go on Sunday. McBride and Webster are both still major question marks, and their game status designation tomorrow will be interesting.
For the Chargers, center Nick Hardwick (neck) and wide receiver Eddie Royal (toe/chest) sat out practice. Defensive end, Corey Liuget, was limited due to a knee injury.
The Chargers are a bit banged up along their offensive line, but overall are a fairly healthy team. It will be interesting to see if the Giants defensive line can take advantage of the Chargers offensive line on Sunday.
