Phillips aggravated an MCL injury that kept him out of six games earlier this season last Sunday night against Green Bay. Phillips went through a limited practice on Saturday. He sounded confident all week that he would play against the Redskins but a source said he was still running a bit tentative.
Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was unable to practice for the second straight day due to a back issue. The Giants’ best pass rusher is listed as questionable for the game although head coach Tom Coughlin expects Pierre-Paul to play barring a setback. Read the injury newser here.
The Giants will be without tight end Travis Beckum, who is experiencing soreness with his surgically-repaired knee. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) went through a limited practice and is probable to play. Center David Baas (shoulder) and cornerback Jayron Hosley (shoulder) both were able to go through a full practice and are listed as probable as well.
