November 23, 2012 New York Giants Injury Report: WR Domenik Hixon (ankle) and LB Jacquian Williams (knee) did not practice yesterday. Both have officially been ruled “out” of the game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.
Head Coach Tom Coughlin was asked if Williams suffered a setback. “Not really,” responded Coughlin. “He was sick today so we didn’t push him.”
HB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), DT Linval Joseph (knee), LB Keith Rivers (calf/knee), and S Kenny Phillips (knee) were limited in practice. Bradshaw and Joseph are “probable” for the game against the Packers while Rivers and Phillips are “questionable.”
Coughlin was asked if was optimistic about Phillips playing. “I am, but we’ll see. We’ll see,” said Coughlin. “I can’t tell you; each day we’ve been a little better and he’s done a little better and a little more on the practice field. Hopefully he’ll feel like he can make a strong contribution.”
OC David Baas (ankle/elbow), OG Chris Snee (ankle), and S Tyler Sash (ankle) practiced fully. All three players are “probable” for the game.
