Two Weeks to Go in BBI Donation Campaign!: Thank you very much for those who have given. Your support for the site is very, very much appreciated and I’ve attempted to thank each and everyone personally.
Unfortunately, we’re still not on pace to match last year’s totals. If folks who have not donated are still interested in doing so, now is the time.
For more information, please see the Donation Campaign section of the website.
Injury Report: Kawika Mitchell suffered a groin strain against the Jets. The injury is not believed to be serious. “(He) had some strength (Sunday) morning,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “Hopefully that is going to be something we can control. I dont know if he can work it for this week, but he will make it.”
The bad news is that CB E.J. Underwood broke his jaw and will undergo surgery. “That’s a pretty serious thing,” Coughlin said. “There’s going to be a length of time there when we can’t have contact, so (whether to put him on Injured Reserve) is a decision we’ll have to make.”
TE Rodney Burgess (shoulder) will undergo an MRI.
Coughlin said that other players were scheduled to undergo MRI’s and X-rays but he did not identify those players. “We have a few people that are getting MRI’s that I really shouldnt comment on until I find out what the MRI’s are,” said Coughlin. “We have some other guys that are being X-rayed or MRI’ed that I will comment on when I get the information back.”
As for those players who did not play, Coughlin said LB Gerris Wilkinson (knee) and LS Ryan Kuehl were making progress, but were not ready to return to practice.
Cuts Looming: The Giants must reach the NFL maximum of 75 players by 4PM on Tuesday. The final cutdown to 53 players will be on September 1st.
