Corey Webster doubtful for date with Panthers

Knowshon Moreno, Corey Webster AP

The Panthers have a slew of injuries compromising them in the secondary for this weekend’s game against the Gaints, but the visiting team looks like it will also be shorthanded in the defensive backfield.

Cornerback Corey Webster has been listed as doubtful for the game with a hip injury. Webster was able to practice in full on Wednesday, but he didn’t practice on either Thursday or Friday and the designation means he has just a 25 percent chance of playing on Sunday.

Assuming Webster misses the game, the Giants will choose someone from the group of Jayron Hosley, Terrell Thomas and Aaron Ross to play across from Prince Amukamara. Ross played a fair amount in the opener, but didn’t see any defensive snaps against the Broncos last weekend, while Thomas moved into the third cornerback role and did not perform particularly well.

The Panthers will be without cornerback D.J. Moore and safety Quintin Mikell with cornerbacks Josh Thomas and James Dockery both listed as questionable. It’s shaping up to be a busy day for the receivers on both teams.

    Thomas played fine. He covered Welker all game and held him to 3 catches. One was a TD on a play where the entire defense wasn’t lined up.

    Does anyone still think Corey Webster is the best CB on the Giants? He wont even be on the roster next season.

    I’ve been saying all year long that my Giants need to rebuild. The best thing would be to throw in the towel Browns style and go for Clowney. Might as well start Nassib and get his era going too.

    It was a shame the Giants didn’t make the right move and get Tiki Barber to come back when they signed Jacobs. I’ve told you guys for years on PFT that Barber is the second best Giants ever after LT and the best running back since Walter Payton other than Barry Sanders.
