NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
WR Dwayne Harris (shoulder), DE George Selvie (concussion), DT Markus Kuhn (knee), and LB Devon Kennard (hamstring/foot) did not practice on Thursday. Head Coach Tom Coughlin said Kennard will not play this weekend against the Carolina Panthers. Harris is a new addition to the injury report.

LT Ereck Flowers (ankle) and LB J.T. Thomas (ankle) practiced on a limited basis. Thomas is a new addition to the injury report.

DE Owa Odighizuwa, who was placed on the Injured Reserve/Designated-to-Return list on November 5th with what the team said was a hamstring injury, returned to practice on Thursday. The earliest Odighizuwa is eligible to be added to the 53-man roster is in two weeks, on December 31st.

However, Odighizuwa said that a foot injury that caused him to miss the first three games of the regular season was the real reason he was put on short-term Injured Reserve. “It was a huge issue,” Odighizuwa said. “It was something that was a major problem for me. Even when I came back and I played in those four games, it was something that I was working through.”

WHAT’S UP NEXT…
Instead of practicing, the Giants will hold a “recovery day” on Friday. The players will select two of six recovery stations, based on seniority. Their choices are massage, yoga, FMS (Functional Movement Screen) exercises designed for the individual, air compression boots, contrast bath (between a hot and cold tub), and self-massage with stick rollers and elastic bands.

The Giants will also have a 45-minute, up-tempo “walk-thru” practice on Saturday that is not open to the media. The Giants play the Carolina Panthers at home on Sunday.
