New York Giants 2013: End of road could be near for Jacobs

“There is no place in the National Football League I’d rather be than 1925 Giants Drive. Nowhere.”

Brandon Jacobs returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday (knee), and his status for Sunday at San Diego is “wait and see” at best. After missing three games with wear and tear to the knee, Jacobs returned for weeks 11 and 12 and looked sharp — he converted three short yardage runs versus Green Bay, and broke off an old school B-JAC gainer of 37 yards against Dallas. Following another flareup, however, the 31-year old is finding the road to recovery an arduous one. He was forced to sit week 13 at Washington, and the issue can now be characterized as chronic:

"“Right now, it’s just a lot of wear and tear. I might wake up tomorrow and say coach, ‘I’m hurt.’ I might not.”"

Jacobs underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee back in 2009, and another surgery will likely be required to prolong his nine-year career; should he choose to go that route in the off-season:

"“My knee being the way it is, it is definitely fixable. So I’ll see where I’m at after that heals up, whenever it happens. Who knows. I don’t want to start talking about it because we have four games to play.”"
