OCTOBER 7, 2016 NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
Safety Darian Thompson (foot), safety Nat Berhe (concussion), tight end Larry Donnell (concussion), and offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse (calf) have officially been ruled out of the game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.
Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (groin), cornerback Eli Apple (hamstring), and running back Rashad Jennings (thumb) are “questionable” for the game.
When asked about Rodgers-Cromartie and Apple, Head Coach Ben McAdoo responded, “Tomorrow is a big test for us, those two included. I don’t want to speak too soon on it.”
“I’m going to play,” said Rodgers-Cromartie. “I’m going to give it a go… Night and day (better than last week). Way different. Last week, I was not really pounding. Rehab did a good job of getting back out there. Going Sunday.”
When asked about Jennings, McAdoo replied, “He has to demonstrate that he can protect himself, protect the ball and protect the quarterback…Tomorrow is going to be a big day for a lot of people.”
Defensive end Olivier Vernon (wrist) and defensive tackle Robert Thomas (illness) are “probable” for the game.
