EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) did not practice Thursday and isn't expected to work Friday, according to coach Tom Coughlin. Pierre-Paul missed last Sunday's game against the Redskins, and could be in danger of missing a second straight game against the Chargers.


Pierre-Paul said Wednesday that he doesn't want to end his season because of the injury, but it might be a better long-term decision for the Giants to keep him sidelined if they cannot catch the Eagles and Cowboys in the NFC East race.

Cornerbacks Trumaine McBride (groin) and Corey Webster (ankle) were limited in practice for the second straight day. McBride missed the game against the Redskins, and Webster has missed the team's previous four games. Coughlin said Webster is "working a little bit better," and defensive coordinator Perry Fewell said he has his fingers crossed McBride will be able to play against the Chargers.

Tight end Brandon Myers (groin) did not practice Thursday, but expects to return Friday.

"It's nothing major," Myers said. "Came back to work yesterday and was a little sore, and giving it a little bit of rest and be back to practice tomorrow."

Running back Brandon Jacobs (knee) also did not practice Thursday. He was not scheduled to work, but plans to work Friday. He was limited Wednesday.
