Jacobs, Rogers out again Friday
By Kieran Darcy
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and defensive tackle Shaun Rogers (knee) were not practicing Friday, at least during the portion of practice open to the media.
Jacobs hasn't practiced all week, meaning he probably won't be available for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. You can expect Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox to share the carries at running back for a second straight game.
Rogers, who led the Giants with four quarterback hits against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night, hasn't practiced all week either. If Rogers can't go against the Eagles, rookie Johnathan Hankins will likely be activated in his place. Hankins had five tackles against the Eagles in the teams' previous meeting in Week 5, but was inactive against the Vikings.
Cornerback Corey Webster (groin), who sat out practice Thursday, appeared to be doing some work Friday.
We'll have more information for you later, when the official injury report is released.
