Giants practice report: Jacobs hurt too?
By Dan Graziano
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs was standing off to the side with a wrap on his left leg and not working with the rest of the team during the portion of Monday morning's practice that was open to the media. Now, the Giants don't play again until Monday night, and they're not practicing Tuesday or Wednesday. So it's possible they're just resting the veteran back as much as possible after his 22-carry performance in Thursday night's loss to the Bears. But this is worth monitoring, since David Wilson is in California getting a second opinion on his neck injury and Da'Rel Scott is likely out for a while with a hamstring injury and if Jacobs is hurt that leaves rookie Michael Cox as the only healthy halfback on the Giants' roster. They'd likely look to add someone at that position this week. Depending on the results of Wilson's exam, they likely will anyway.
Running back Andre Brown, eligible to practice this week for the first time since breaking his leg in the preseason and being placed on injured reserve/designated to return, was doing a fair bit of running. But he isn't eligible to play in a game until Week 10 against the Raiders. So no help coming there yet.
Cornerback Corey Webster, who's missed the last four games with a groin injury, was doing a lot of work on the side with a trainer.
Cornerback Jayron Hosley (hamstring) and safety Cooper Taylor (shoulder) stood off to the side with Jacobs during stretching.
Center David Baas, who's missed three straight games with a neck injury but said Friday that he expected to be able to play this week, was indeed working in position drills with the rest of the offensive linemen.
And lo and behold, tight end Adrien Robinson, who's been out since training camp with a foot injury, was practicing. Didn't see that one coming.
