SEPTEMBER 29, 2016 NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT – NOW NAT BERHE IS HURT…
Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (groin), cornerback Eli Apple (hamstring), safety Darian Thompson (foot), safety Nat Berhe (concussion), offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse (calf), and defensive tackle Robert Thomas (illness) did not practice on Thursday.

The Giants are now down to two healthy safeties on the roster: Landon Collins and Andrew Adams. “We have a bunch of guys who stepped in today, and some guys on offense, who contributed as well,” said Head Coach Ben McAdoo.

When asked about the two injured corners, McAdoo replied, “We’ll know when we wake up tomorrow. They got some work with the trainers today, we’ll see how they respond.”

Although, running back Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited in practice, ESPN is reporting that Jennings is unlikely to play Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings.

“I think (Jennings is) going to give himself a shot on Monday night,” said McAdoo. “He makes progress every day. He looked good today, he looked better than he did last week already… At that position, you need to be able to protect yourself, protect the ball, and protect the quarterback.”

Defensive end Olivier Vernon (wrist) fully practiced.
