NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY UPDATE…
Although the New York Giants did not practice on Wednesday, Head Coach Tom Coughlin addressed the Philadelphia media by conference call. The full transcript is available in The Corner Forum. Coughlin provided the following injury updates:

  • WR Odell Beckham (hamstring): “Well, it’s day to day. The trainers seem to think he’s making good progress. He wouldn’t practice today, no, but hopefully we’ll get some work in before the end of the week.”
  • WR Victor Cruz (calf): “He’s rehabbing, working indoors primarily, working with the trainers, he’s in every meeting. However, he has not been cleared to be on the field.”

Coughlin was not asked about WR Rueben Randle (hamstring), LG Justin Pugh (ankle), LB Jon Beason (concussion), or any other player who was inactive last week.

NJ.com is reporting that while an MRI showed no serious tears in Beckham’s hamstring, he has been experiencing some swelling in the muscle.

DANIEL FELLS UPDATE…
ESPN is confirming previous reports that tight end Daniel Fells has undergone five surgical procedures, with more scheduled, in an effort to stop the life-threatening MRSA infection that began in his foot. ESPN reports that the procedures were to scrape the infection out of the bone, which has resulted in some bone loss. Apparently the infection also spread to the tibia in his leg, and as recently as Sunday, there was concern that his foot may have to be amputated. That no longer appears to be case as Fells is now responding to antibiotics and is improving. As others have already reported, ESPN is stating that Fells’ playing days are likely over.

ELI MANNING NAMED “NFC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK”…
Quarterback Eli Manning has been named the “NFC Offensive Player of the Week” for his performance against the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday night. In the game, Manning completed 41-of-54 passes (both career highs) for 441 yards (third highest total of his career), 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception for a QB rating of 110.2. Manning also completed 15 consecutive passes spanning the third and fourth quarters and led the Giants to the 27th fourth-quarter regular-season comeback of his career. This is Manning’s third “NFC Offensive Player of the Week” award of his career, the others being against the Philadelphia Eagles in 2006 and 2011.
