October 1, 2012 New York Giants Injury Report: S Kenny Phillips injured his medial collateral ligament (MCL) in the game against the Eagles and will be “week-to-week.”
OC David Baas suffered a hand injury that affected his shotgun snaps in the game. “Yeah, his hand was all swollen,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “He rolled three (snaps) back…David has a big old swollen hand today and that contributed to it I’m sure.”
Coughlin was asked if WR Hakeem Nick’s knee injury was any better. “Not that I know of,” replied Coughlin. “It flared up on him when he started to run after having all that time off. It’s a swollen knee, what can I tell you?”
