NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
WR Victor Cruz (calf), TE Larry Donnell (neck), LG Justin Pugh (potential concussion protocol), RG Geoff Schwartz (ankle), LB J.T. Thomas (ankle), and LB Uani ‘Unga (neck) did not practice on Wednesday.

The Giants issued a statement that said Cruz will “continue to build on the straight line running he did last week with the hope of expanding as the week progresses.”

Donnell began running on the side.

Pugh has been experiencing headaches and is being evaluated to determine if needs to undergo the concussion protocol. Schwartz will practice on Thursday.

(Late Update: Pugh was examined today by an independent neurologist, and the conclusion from that exam is that Pugh is suffering from the effects of dehydration/heat, not a concussion).

CB Prince Amukamara (pectoral) practiced on a limited basis without contact. CB Leon McFadden (groin) was also limited.

OT Will Beatty (pectoral – PUP) continued to work on an undisclosed basis.

JOSH BROWN NAMED “NFC SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK”…
New York Giants place kicker Josh Brown has been named the “NFC Special Teams Player of the Week” for his performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday. Brown made all four of his field goal attempts – from 35, 35, 53, and 44 yards – in the Giants’ 32-18 victory. The 53-yarder was his longest field goal of the season. Brown is the second Giant to win this award in three weeks as Dwayne Harris won it for his performance against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7.
