NOVEMBER 25, 2016 NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
Offensive guard Justin Pugh (knee), offensive lineman Brett Jones (calf), and offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse (knee) have all been officially ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.

“(Pugh) had a slight setback,” said Head Coach Ben McAdoo. “He got sore. He had a little setback and we’ll wait to see where he is next week.”

Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (knee), wide receiver Roger Lewis, Jr. (concussion), offensive lineman Adam Gettis (calf), and running back Orleans Darkwa (lower leg) are “questionable” for the game.

“Jason, he would have been limited today if we would have practiced,” said McAdoo.

“Yes, I’m playing on Sunday,” Pierre-Paul said. “I’ll be out there on Sunday.”

“(Gettis) practiced this week, he’s fighting through some soreness, but we’ll see how he does tomorrow,” said McAdoo.

Wide receiver/returner Dwayne Harris (wrist) is “probable” for the game.

NOVEMBER 17, 2016 NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
Offensive guard Justin Pugh (knee), offensive lineman Brett Jones (calf), and running back Orleans Darkwa (lower leg) did not practice on Thursday.

Wide receiver Victor Cruz (ankle), wide receiver/returner Dwayne Harris (toe), and offensive lineman Adam Gettis (calf) practiced on a limited basis.

“The injury is doing well,” Cruz said. “I practiced today and everything feels good. I was running around, making some plays, so everything is feeling good… Sunday at one o’clock, I plan to be out there helping my team win.”

PRACTICE SQUAD MOVES…
The New York Giants have signed offensive center/guard Shane McDermott to the Practice Squad. To make room for McDermott, the team terminated the Practice Squad contract of wide receiver Da’Ron Brown.

McDermott was originally signed by the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2015 NFL Draft, but the Cowboys cut him in September that year. After a brief stint on the Panthers Practice Squad, the Giants signed McDermott to the Practice Squad in November 2015. He also spent time on the Giants Practice Squad again in September 2016. McDermott is a blue-collar, overachiever who lacks ideal athleticism and strength.

Brown was signed to the Giants Practice Squad last week. He was originally drafted in the 7th round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. He has spent time on the Practice Squads of the Chiefs (2015) and New England Patriots (2016).

Darian Thompson, New York Giants (June 6, 2016)

NOVEMBER 3, 2016 NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
Safety Darian Thompson (foot) re-injured his foot during individual drills in practice on Wednesday and did not practice on Thursday. He is back in a boot and being re-evaluated by a foot specialist. Thompson’s season may be in jeopardy.

“(It) felt very uncomfortable,” Thompson said. “Felt pain. Right now, don’t really know what’s going on. I’m going to find out more when I go see the doctor.  It’s the same foot, the same injury I’ve been dealing with. I don’t know exactly what happened to it. That’s what I’m waiting to find out. I stayed here during the bye week doing rehab. Was feeling good. I guess it just wasn’t ready.”

Wide receiver Odell Beckham (hip), running back Bobby Rainey (calf), offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse (calf), defensive end Kerry Wynn (concussion), safety Nat Berhe (concussion), long snapper Zak DeOssie (ankle), and quarterback Ryan Nassib (elbow) practiced on a limited basis on Thursday. Wynn left practice after suffering the concussion during drills.

“We are not sure where Nat is, we are not sure where DT (Darian Thompson) is right now,” said Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. “We thought we would be getting some guys back, but we are going to have to wait and see if that happens…(Berhe) did some things, he was limited, but I don’t know the official status. It is still protocol right now.”

JOSH BROWN’S DOMESTIC PAST VIOLENCE ISSUES FLARE UP AGAIN…
New revelations about New York Giants place kicker Josh Brown’s past domestic violence issues have been made public. The ensuing public relations firestorm has caused the Giants to announce that Brown will not be traveling to London with the team for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams. Brown was already suspended without pay for the first regular-season game, but now the league has announced they are considering further sanctions.

“Josh Brown will not travel with the team to London,” announced the Giants in a written statement. “In light of the news reports regarding the documents released by the State of Washington yesterday, we think it makes sense to review this newly disclosed information and to revisit this issue following our trip to London. The Giants do not condone or excuse any form of domestic violence.  Josh has acknowledged that he has issues in his life and has been working on these issues through therapy and counseling for a long period of time. We remain supportive of Josh and his efforts.”

The Giants have not announced who will replace Brown on Sunday.

OCTOBER 20, 2016 NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
Safety Darian Thompson (foot), safety Nat Berhe (concussion), and offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse (calf) did not practice on Thursday.

Wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. (hip), cornerback Eli Apple (groin), cornerback Trevin Wade (ankle), linebacker Keenan Robinson (knee), and long snapper Zak DeOssie (ankle) practiced on a limited basis.

“I feel better than yesterday, so we will see,” said Beckham.

“We’re very optimistic, we’re very hopeful (about Beckham playing),” Offensive Coordinator Mike Sullivan said. “We’ll wait and see.”

“We’re hoping (Apple will play),” said Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. “He did a little bit more today. That’s Ben McAdoo’s call. We certainly don’t want to set him back like with what happened last time. He came off the hamstring and then it set him back with the groin, so we don’t want that to happen. We’ll have to be smart about it. I’m sure Ben will make that decision.”

Defensive Olivier Vernon (wrist) and running back Rashad Jennings (finger) fully practiced.

Cornerback Eli Apple (groin), safety Darian Thompson (foot), safety Nat Berhe (concussion), wide receiver/returner Dwayne Harris (toe), and offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse (calf) did not practice on Thursday.

Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (groin), defensive end Olivier Vernon (wrist), cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (groin), linebacker Devon Kennard (concussion), running back Rashad Jennings (thumb), and tight end Jerell Adams (ear) were limited in practice.

Tight end Larry Donnell (concussion) fully practiced.

PRACTICE SQUAD MOVES…
The New York Giants have signed linebacker Eric Pinkins and cornerback Michael Hunter to the Practice Squad. To make room for these two, the team placed cornerback Donte Deayon on Practice Squad/Injured Reserve and terminated the Practice Squad contract of quarterback Logan Thomas.

Pinkins was originally drafted in the 6th round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks. Pinkins was waived by the Seahawks in September 2016. He has played in six regular-season NFL games with no starts. Pinkins has a nice combination of size and speed, but his instincts have been questioned.

Hunter has spent time on both the Practice Squad and 53-man roster in 2016. The Giants originally signed Hunter as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2016 NFL Draft. Hunter has a nice combination of size and speed.

Deayon was signed to the Practice Squad in September 2016. The Giants originally signed Deayon as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2016 NFL Draft.

Thomas was originally drafted in the 4th round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals. The Dolphins claimed Thomas off of waivers from the Cardinals in September 2015 and the Giants claimed him off of waivers from the Dolphins in June 2016.
