December 5, 2013 New York Giants Injury Report: Not practicing on Thursday were TE Brandon Myers (groin), RB Brandon Jacobs (knee), and DE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder).

Myers was new addition to the injury report, but Head Coach Tom Coughlin and Myers both said they expect Myers to practice on Friday.

“Yeah, I came back yesterday and I was just a little sore,” said Myers. “Just giving it a little bit of rest and I’ll be back at practice tomorrow.”

On the other hand, it sounds like Pierre-Paul will miss his second game in a row. “I think Brandon Jacobs hopefully can do some things tomorrow,” said Coughlin. “Don’t expect JPP to do anything tomorrow.”

CB Terrell Thomas (knee), CB Trumaine McBride (groin), and CB Corey Webster (ankle) practiced on a limited basis.

“(McBride) worked a little bit today,” said Coughlin. “He worked 50 percent today.”

“I need (to see Webster) to be healthy and can consistently run full speed,” said Coughlin.

Justin Tuck Named “NFC Defensive Player of the Week”: DE Justin Tuck has been named the “NFC Defensive Player of the Week” for his performance against the Washington Redskins last Sunday. In the game, Tuck was credited with four sacks and five tackles.

Tuck is the third Giant in five weeks to win the award, the other two being CB Terrell Thomas and DE Jason Pierre-Paul. This is the second time Tuck has won the award, the first time being in Week 1 of the 2009 NFL season, also against the Washington Redskins.

December 4, 2013 New York Giants Injury Report: Not practicing on Wednesday were DE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) and CB Terrell Thomas (knee).

“I’m going to take it day-by-day,” said Pierre-Paul. “I can’t really give you an answer on that right now (on whether I will play on Sunday). The only thing that I can do right now is to take it day-by-day and I’ll continue to come in and get treatment twice daily and rehab it.”

Pierre-Paul was asked if he was hopeful he would play again this season. “Hopefully,” responded Pierre-Paul. “I hope so. Like I said, I’m taking it day-by-day. I’m in the training room 24/7. Even at home I’m doing rehab. I’m doing everything that I possibly can to put me back on the field.”

Pierre-Paul was also asked if his shoulder would eventually need surgery. “I don’t think so,” said Pierre-Paul. “I hope not. That would set me back some more, I hope not. I’m pretty sure it’s nothing that needs surgery on, it just needs rest. I’ve been rehabbing it 24/7, even at home, so hopefully it can get better before the season’s over with.”

CB Trumaine McBride (groin), CB Corey Webster (ankle), and RB Brandon Jacobs (knee) practiced on a limited basis.

Notes: With four games remaining, QB Eli Manning has been sacked a career-high 31 times this season. His previous high was 30 sacks in 2009. Last year, Manning was sacked just 19 times.

The Redskins game was the 24th time in Manning’s career that he rallied his team from a 4th quarter deficit. That places him fifth among active quarterbacks, behind Peyton Manning (50), Tom Brady (34), Drew Brees (31), and Ben Roethlisberger (28).

The Giants have committed an NFL-high 31 turnovers (19 interceptions, 12 lost fumbles). Their opponents have scored 102 points off of those giveaways.

The Giants have had at least one giveaway in each of their 12 games. The last season in which they committed a turnover in every game was 2007.

November 29, 2013 New York Giants Injury Report: Not practicing on Friday were DE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder), CB Trumaine McBride (groin), and RB Brandon Jacobs (knee). All three players have officially been ruled “out” of Sunday night’s game against the Washington Redskins.

“(Pierre-Paul) definitely was not himself last weekend,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin, “and there are obviously some things to deal with there from a standpoint of the injury, so he hasn’t been able to practice this week. There’s an injury and he’s dealing with it. He certainly was sore after the Packers game (two weeks ago) and he really had a tough week. It was a tough week for him. He tried to go. He wasn’t able to do the things he wanted to do and that carried over into this week.”

CB Terrell Thomas (knee) and CB Corey Webster (ankle) practiced on a limited basis. Thomas is “probable” for the game while Webster has been ruled “out.”

Defensive Coordinator Perry Fewell was asked about being down two cornerbacks. “We’ll go with Jayron Hosley and we also have Charles James,” Fewell said. “They’ve practiced all week, so we’ll go that way.”

WR Hakeem Nicks (abdomen) practiced fully and is “probable” for the game.

David Wilson, New York Giants (October 6, 2013)

RB David Wilson May Have Spinal Stenosis: RB David Wilson revealed on Friday that doctors fear he may be suffering from spinal stenosis, which is an abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal. The injury is affecting his neck and could potentially end his season. However, the New York Giants have not officially announced their medical diagnosis and Wilson will be seeking a second opinion on Monday.

Wilson was asked by a reporter if the injury was stenosis, and Wilson replied, “That’s what it is. That’s what they think it is.”

“They’re just telling me to sit out until further notice,” said Wilson. “I’m just as clueless as you all are…I feel perfectly fine but the x-rays, one vertebra is closer to my spinal chord…They said they want to be cautious and check it our further.”

Wilson was asked if season-ending surgery was a possibility. “I have to get a second opinion; we don’t know yet,” replied Wilson.

Head Coach Tom Coughlin was asked if Wilson’s injury was potentially season-ending. “That’s not the way that it was presented to me,” responded Coughlin. “He is going for a second opinion, as you know. The thing that gave me some confidence is, David had an occurrence of this in college. He talked to me exactly about how it came about. It wasn’t a top of the crown type thing, or anything of that nature  It wasn’t that type of an injury. It’s a disc issue and they will determine the severity of it and whether or not over the course of a couple weeks, three weeks, four weeks, if that can become a better circumstance, then he would have a chance to come back and play. If it’s determined that’s not the case, we’ll go from there.”
