November 6, 2013 New York Giants Injury Report: Not practicing on Wednesday were RB David Wilson (neck), WR Victor Cruz (neck), CB Terrell Thomas (knee), and CB Corey Webster (groin).
“I wouldn’t call it a setback (with Cruz), but when a guy is not practicing, obviously, it’s an issue,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “They’re just going to hold him to make sure that he doesn’t have any further incidents today. He feels better, quite frankly. I think he probably could practice if we really needed him to practice today, but we’re going to err on the side of precaution here in hopes that he will be prepared to go (on Thursday).”
“No concern, just some precautionary stuff,” said Cruz. “The training staff wanted me to take this one off and take another day to heal and get better and just feel better about myself…No pain, very little discomfort. In the morning it’s a little stiff but other than that it’s no pain.”
RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring), DT Shaun Rogers (knee), and CB Jayron Hosley (hamstring) practiced on a limited basis.
TE Adrien Robinson (foot), who has not played in a game this season, fully practiced. Robinson hurt his foot in the preseason.
“It’ll be up to the coaches (if I play on Sunday),” said Robinson. “I’ve been practicing. I feel better. I’m ready to go. I’m real excited to be back…It was tough because I wasn’t expecting to be out this long. It just took time.”
