The New York Giants released their pre-practice injury report for Week 5 on Wednesday. On it were a season-high 15 players, including seven starters.
Those 15 players were:
David Baas (neck), David Diehl (thumb), Mark Herzlich (toe), Jayron Hosley (hamstring), Cullen (knee/Achilles), Linval Joseph (ankle/knee), Jason Pierre-Paul (knee), Adrien Robinson (foot), Shaun Rogers (back), Aaron Ross (back), Chris Snee (hip), Cooper Taylor (shoulder), Terrell Thomas (knee), Corey Webster (hip) and Jacquian Williams (knee).
Though most of these players are expected to play Sunday vs. the Eagles, it’s still a sight to see how many of the Giants are battling injuries this early in the season. At 0-4, they are going to need as many healthy bodies as they can get.
Of those 15 players, it is a mere certainty starting offensive linemen David Baas and Chris Snee will be unable to play Sunday. Coughlin told reporters that there had not been a “whole lot of improvement” on that front. Hosley could also be a few weeks with a hamstring injury, according to the New York Post’s Paul Schwartz.
