Dan Connor’s Season is Over: The Giants placed LB Dan Connor on season-ending Injured Reserve on Thursday. Connor left Sunday night’s game against the Cowboys with a neck injury (burner).
Giants Claim LB Allen Bradford Off of Waivers from Seahawks: The Giants have claimed LB Allen Bradford off of waivers from the Seattle Seahawks.
Practice Squad Moves: The Giants have re-signed WR Marcus Harris to the Practice Squad. To make room for Harris, the Giants terminated the Practice Squad contract of OT Steven “Sam” Baker.
Injury Update: Not practicing on Thursday were CB Prince Amukamara (concussion), OT David Diehl (thumb), and TE Adrien Robinson (foot).
“(Amukamara is) getting tested right now, but hopefully he’s going to be okay,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “He seems to be fine. I can’t get him to tell me he’s had any issues, but he did the same thing the night of the game. We’ll see…I would say if he works (on Friday) and gets a good day’s work, then we would have a good chance (to play on Sunday). Barring setbacks, you know how that goes.”
OC David Baas (knee) and DE Damontre Moore (shoulder) were limited in practice.
“(Baas has) had a couple of days of practice time and he wants more every day,” said Coughlin. “That’s a good sign.”
“Right now, I’m very encouraged,” said Baas. “Today was definitely better than yesterday. Tomorrow will be a huge indicator.”
RB Da’Rel Scott (knee) fully practiced.
