Injury Update – Pugh Out With a Concussion: Not practicing on Friday were WR Hakeem Nicks (groin), CB Corey Webster (groin), OL Justin Pugh (concussion), FB Henry Hynoski (PUP – knee), OG Chris Snee (PUP – hip), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (PUP – back), DT Markus Kuhn (PUP – knee), and CB Terrell Thomas (PUP – knee).
“Pugh took a shot in the head (on Thursday),” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “He had a headache this morning, so he’s going through the (concussion) protocol…He’ll be out until he passes all the protocols.”
“Webster says he feels pretty good,” said Coughlin. “He did feel a little strain in the groin area, so they’re going to do what they have to so that it doesn’t turn into something. It’s difficult, so he’s got some downtime.”
“The doctor thought (Nicks will) make it back for Tuesday,” said Coughlin.
