Multiple Giants players remain in the concussion protocol

Unfortunately for Daboll, Thibodeaux isn't the only player dealing with a concussion. On Wednesday, Thibodeaux, Jalin Hyatt AND Adoree' Jackson were all held out of practice because they remain in the protocol. That's a bit of a headache for Daboll, as all three players are able to make quite the impact on both sides of the ball.

As for Barkley, he's still dealing with some issues stemming from the high-ankle sprain he suffered in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals. Because of this, Barkley, who was slowed down a bit against the Cowboys and in discomfort, didn't do much during individual drills on Wednesday as NY gets ready for Washington.

It goes without saying, but if Barkley isn't able to play against the Commanders, it's going to be a major problem for this offense. New York struggles as it is with Tommy DeVito as the starting signal-caller, but the rookie needs Barkley out there to help him out. We can only hope Barkley is able to get a full practice in on Thursday.
