Kenny Phillips will miss another game for Giants

When the Giants try to tame the Steelers’ potent passing game, the home team won’t have safety Kenny Phillips.


A league source tells PFT that Phillips will miss his fifth straight game on Sunday, due to a knee injury suffered on September 30 against the Eagles.

Listed as questionable, Phillips fully participated in practice on Wednesday, but he then was a limited participant on Thursday and Friday.  Phillips said on Thursday that he’ll play.

It ended up being wishful thinking, driven undoubtedly by the fact that his replacement, Stevie Brown, was named the NFC defensive player of the week for his performance against the Cowboys.

Indeed, Brown currently is listed as the starter on the team’s depth chart, with Phillips showing up as his understudy.

    Good deal! If he were to play, that would be one more Giant we’d have to hear from about how their upcoming opponents’ receivers get away with all sorts of illegal contact.

    It’s a big deal. No 3 Safety sets for the Giants to employ, the plan they used last year when they had depth problems at LB. With 3 LBs out today, there was talk that they were going to use this strategy again. Guess not now.

    Stevie Brown. No worries

    Would be nice to have 3 safety sets… Sort of better with opposing slot receivers. But Stevie deserves to start. What about Diel starting. I hope that’s not a mistake???
