Giants Place David Wilson and Shaun Rogers on Injured Reserve; Activate Andre Brown and Markus Kuhn: The New York Giants placed RB David Wilson (neck) and DT Shaun Rogers (knee) on season-ending Injured Reserve on Thursday. To fill their roster spots, the Giants activated RB Andre Brown off of the short-term Injured Reserve list and DT Markus Kuhn off of the Physically-Unable-to-Perform (PUP) list.
November 7, 2013 New York Giants Injury Report: Aside from RB David Wilson and DT Shaun Rogers, not practicing on Thursday were CB Trumaine McBride (groin) and CB Corey Webster (groin).
“(McBride has) got some soreness in the groin kind of area, so we decided to hold him and see if he’s better and ready to go (on Friday),” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin.
RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring), WR Victor Cruz (neck), CB Terrell Thomas (knee), and CB Jayron Hosley (hamstring) practiced on a limited basis.
“(Jacobs) did some,” said Coughlin. “We’ll see what (his hamstring is) like (on Friday)…I don’t think you’d call it a setback. He just has some issues and you’re going to have to deal with them.”
TE Adrien Robinson (foot) fully practiced.
