August 26, 2010 New York Giants Injury Report: Not practicing yesterday were QB Jim Sorgi (shoulder), HB D.J. Ware (concussion), WR Ramses Barden (back), WR Sinorice Moss (groin), H-Back Travis Beckum (neck), OC Shaun O’Hara (ankle), OG Kevin Boothe (PUP – chest), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (groin), DT Chris Canty (groin), DT Jay Alford (knee), LB Chase Blackburn (knee), CB Terrell Thomas (calf), CB Aaron Ross (foot), S Michael Johnson (back), and S Sha’reff Rashad (concussion).
All of the players listed above with the possible exceptions of Pierre-Paul, Canty, Alford, and Thomas will not play this weekend against the Ravens. Head Coach Tom Coughlin doesn’t think Thomas will play.
Shaun O’Hara has been placed in a cast and will not play against the Ravens and probably will not play in the preseason finale either. LG Rich Seubert will start at center in his place.
“Shaun has tendonitis, ankle, and they’re going to try to resolve this so they put a cast on him and they’re going to hold him for three or four days to see if they can’t get these things straightened out,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “It’s the ankle, it’s the Achilles, it’s the tendonitis, it’s the swelling that occurs, the soreness. There’s soreness and swelling there.”
“It’s just something that I’ve been dealing with all through camp,” said O’Hara. “I’ve had some good days, and I’ve had some bad days. It’s really been something that we have been coping with, and pushing through. We finally reached a point where we decided that we need to just really try to isolate it and get some complete and total rest. That was really our medical staff’s decision. Really, it’s just trying to put us in the best position for week one, the start of the season.”
