August 29, 2014 New York Giants Injury Report: Head Coach Tom Coughlin provided injury updates on two players injured during Thursday’s preseason finale against the New England Patriots: FB Henry Hynoski (shoulder) and WR Mario Manningham (calf).
“Henry has a contusion of the shoulder,” said Coughlin. “Nothing more than that. Even today he says he is much better than he was last night. Mario has strained a calf.”
LB Jon Beason (foot), who has been on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform (PUP) list since training camp started, looks like he will return to the practice field this week. “I think he is going to be allowed to practice come Monday,” said Coughlin.
OG Brandon Mosley (back) missed practiced last week and did not play against the Patriots. “Well, they are telling us that they think he will respond very well, and in effect, if he does, with Thursday being our Wednesday, that they would expect he may very well be ready,” said Coughlin.
CB Prince Amukamara (groin) has been cleared to return to practice. “Last week I was only able to do individuals, but the doctor cleared me that I can do everything, so I am excited about that,” said Amukamara. “I am expected to play Monday (against the Detroit Lions).”
LG Geoff Schwartz (toe) is not sure when he will be able to return to the practice field. “No idea (when I will be back),” said Schwartz. “Just see how it goes. There is really no other way to put it…This is a unique type of thing. Especially the toes, and with big guys, you just have to see how the rehab goes.”
Schwartz did confirm he will not need surgery. “Surgery was not even an option,” said Schwartz.
When asked if short-term injured reserve might be a possibility, Schwartz responded, “They haven’t mentioned it. That is upstairs. That is not any of my business.”
“I think Geoff Schwartz himself said it may take something like three to four weeks, and I would add a little bit to that, I would think, just to be safe,” said Coughlin.
