The New York Giants and San Diego Chargers have released their Friday practice injury report including game statuses for Sunday:

Neither was expected to play this week, so this is not much of a surprise.

Brandon Jacobs (knee) was able to practice a little on Wednesday, but hasn’t been able to yesterday or today and is listed as doubtful for Sunday. Expect Jacobs to be inactive and for Peyton Hillis to back-up Andre Brown again.

He has been a limited participant in practice all week, so I would expect he has a shot to play on Sunday, although his snaps would likely be limited, if so. Brandon Myers, who popped up on the injury report yesterday with a groin injury, and Terrell Thomas are both probable and expected to play against the Chargers.

The Chargers head into Sunday’s match-up with the Giants fairly healthy. They have no players listed as out or doubtful. Wide receiver, Eddie Royal (toe/chest), and linebacker, Jarrett Johnson (hand), are both listed as questionable. Center Nick Hardwick (neck), tackle D.J. Fluker (ankle), and defensive end Corey Liuget (knee) are all listed as probable. Eddie Royal is the only player on this list who might not be activated due to injury on Sunday as he didn’t practice all week.

Both the Giants and Chargers are fairly healthy teams for it being so late in the year, although most of the Giants injured players have already been placed on injured reserve. Sunday’s match-up should be an interesting game between two sub-par NFL teams.
