Injury Report – Andre Brown to Short-Term Injured Reserve: HB Andre Brown (broken leg) was placed on the short-term Injured Reserve yesterday. However, a player on short-term injured reserve must be held out six weeks of practice and eight games. Thus, the earliest Brown could possibly be eligible to be re-activated to the 53-man roster would be the Super Bowl. Obviously, this was the last week the Giants could have used the temporary designation.
“I think it’s going to provide Andre with great incentive and we want that experience for him,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “He was very disappointed last night, let’s put it that way, frustrated. He’s had some seasons end in this way before and I think this is a way to, perhaps, motivate, inspire him, give him great purpose and hopefully that will help…There is an option (for surgery). I think it’s something that is being discussed.”
The Giants are not sure about the severity of S Kenny Phillips‘ knee injury. “I don’t know what to expect right now,” said Coughlin when asked about Phillips’ availability. “He came out of the game because he felt something, but it’s not anything new. Hopefully, he can deal with it and it’s not going to be anything major, but I can’t speak to that just yet because he’s going to have to go through a couple of days of examination…He aggravated (the previous knee injury).”
OT David Diehl suffered a burner in the game. “I hope (the injury is not an issue),” said Coughlin. “I’m not going to play down these things, these very painful, if you will, type of injuries, but I hope he can play through it.”
Giants Waive CB Michael Coe from Injured Reserve: The Giants waived CB Michael Coe from Injured Reserve yesterday. Coe was placed on Injured Reserve on November 10 with a hamstring injury. Because of this move, we have updated the Transactions  and Roster  sections of the website.
