December 13, 2013 New York Giants Injury Report: Not practicing on Friday were DE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder), CB Corey Webster, and S Cooper Taylor (hamstring). All three players have been ruled out of the game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
ESPN is reporting that doctors have advised Pierre-Paul not to play again this season. Head Coach Tom Coughlin would not confirm that report. “Not that I know of,” said Coughlin. “I don’t know who would advise him. He won’t be cleared until the doctors feel there’s one particular part of the injury that is not going to occur.” Coughlin was also pressed on whether or not Pierre-Paul might need surgery. “I’m not a doctor and I only know at this point and time, if they can avoid (surgery), they will and if they can’t, there will be a surgery,” responded Coughlin. “I think they’ll make the decision on that and do the best they can in his best interest. If there is something required, it would be done right away. It would have to be done right away.”
DT Cullen Jenkins (shin/quad) and CB Terrell Thomas (knee) practiced on a limited basis. Both are “probable” for the game.
