DECEMBER 1, 2016 NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
Safety Nat Berhe (concussion), linebacker Mark Herzlich (concussion), and defensive end Owa Odighizuwa (knee) did not practice on Thursday.
Left guard Justin Pugh (knee), offensive lineman Brett Jones (calf), and offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse (knee) practiced on a limited basis.
Wide receiver/returner Dwayne Harris (wrist) fully practiced.
Justin Pugh said he ran and did individual work today. He expects to get team reps next week. So, no-go for Sunday's game vs. Steelers.

LANDON COLLINS NAMED “NFC DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE MONTH”…
New York Giants safety Landon Collins has been named “NFC Defensive Player of the Month” for his performance during November. In four November games, all Giants victories, Collins had 30 tackles (23 solo), including a sack, and three interceptions.
Collins is the first Giants player to win an “NFC Defensive Player of the Month” award since defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul in December 2011. He is the first Giants safety in team history to win the award. The only other Giants defensive back to win the award was cornerback Jason Sehorn in December 1997.
