Injury Report: DT Cullen Jenkins was wearing a protective boot on his right foot on Monday in the locker room. “I think just a little tendon something, knee and Achilles,” said Jenkins when asked about the injury. “Hopefully like I said, just a couple days, get this thing treated, and get back going.”
LB Mark Herzlich injured a toe in the game against the Kansas City Chiefs and also was in a protective boot.
“(Jenkins and Herzlich are) in a boot for ankle-type, toe-type reasons and hopefully it’s just something to restrict movement and they can come back and work this week,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin.
There was no word on other Giants injured in the game including DE Justin Tuck (neck), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee), CB Aaron Ross (back), and CB Jayron Hosley (hamstring).
Giants Re-Structure Snee’s Contract Again: According to NFL Player Association (NFLPA) records, the New York Giants and OG Chris Snee appear to have agreed to another contract re-structuring in order to create immediate additional salary cap room in 2013. The move was probably made in order to sign FB John Conner last week.
Snee’s base 2013 base salary was reduced from $4.2 million to $1,164,286. The difference was probably made up in an additional pro-rated signing bonus over the final two years of his current contract.
According to OverTheCap.com, Snee’s cap hit in 2014 is now $11.75 million. If he is cut, the Giants will still lose $4.5 million in cap space due to dead money.
In early September, Snee’s 2013 base salary was reduced from $6.7 million to $4.2 million and his 2014 base salary was increased from $6.95 million to $7.2 million.
S Will Hill Eligible to Return This Week: S Will Hill, who is currently on the Reserve/Suspended List for violating the NFL’s policy on drug use, is eligible to return to the team this week. The Giants will have to make a roster move if they choose to add him to the 53-man roster.
