BBI Giants-Jaguars Game Preview: Our preview of the upcoming Giants-Jaguars game is now available in the Game Previews and Reviews section of the website.
Injury Update – Andrews Still in Hospital: Not practicing yesterday were WR Hakeem Nicks (leg), WR Steve Smith (pectoral), OC Shaun O’Hara (foot), OL David Diehl (hamstring/hip), OL Shawn Andrews (back), and CB Aaron Ross (illness). Of these six players, Ross is “probable” for the game on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Andrews is “doubtful,” and the other four have officially been ruled out of the game.
As of yesterday, Andrews was still in the hospital although he expected to be released today.
“He had texted (Vice President of Medical Services) Ronnie (Barnes) late (Wednesday) night saying he was having a lot of pain and so when he came in Thursday morning nothing had changed,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “So they wanted to make sure what they were doing – sent him to the hospital. They thought they needed to keep him there to treat him. So he has been there and he continues to be there…He experienced so much discomfort that he was having trouble sleeping. That affected him. So they tried to relieve the tension.”
There was some good news on Diehl. “He is running and working and making good progress,” said Coughlin. “And hopefully we will have something to report next week.”
CB/Returner Will Blackmon (chest) practiced on a limited basis and is “questionable” for the game.
DE Justin Tuck (quad), DE Osi Umenyiora (knee), and LB Gerris Wilkinson (hand) all fully practiced and are “probable.”
