Injury report: No Jason Pierre-Paul

12/19/2013

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) did not practice for the second straight day and it doesn't appear he will suit up against the Detroit Lions. Pierre-Paul has missed the last three games, but said he hopes to return this season.

The Giants had four players return to practice Thursday as defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (shin/quad), receiver Jerrel Jernigan (knee), guard James Brewer (ankle) and cornerback Terrell Thomas (knee) all worked. They all did not practice Wednesday.

The Giants officially ruled out Victor Cruz (knee/concussion) for Sunday and he won't play again this year after undergoing surgery, although the Giants have not officially declared him out the remainder of the season. He was cleared of his concussion on Wednesday.

Things are also not improving for running back Peyton Hillis (concussion), according to Giants head coach Tom Coughlin.

Coughlin did say he expects guard David Diehl (knee) will work Friday after missing the last two days.
