Not much improvement on injury front for Giants


The Giants have been hampered by injuries on their way to an 0-4 record and it doesn’t look like they’ll be in much better shape as they try to avoid a fifth loss against the Eagles this weekend.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that guard Chris Snee and center David Baas both missed practice again on Thursday and that they are both unlikely to play on Sunday. There have been reports that Snee may need season-ending hip surgery and Baas has been suffering from a neck injury that kept him out of the Week Four loss to the Chiefs.

If both are out, the Giants could turn to David Diehl at right guard after starting James Brewer there last week. Diehl hasn’t played yet this season because of a thumb injury, but dressed for last week’s loss. The Giants signed former Eagle Dallas Reynolds to add to their interior depth this week as well.

Vacchiano reports that they were joined on the sideline by cornerback Corey Webster. Webster has missed the last two games with what was listed as a hip injury but is now listed as a groin injury, but was able to practice on Wednesday. The Giants were also without cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Jayron Hosley for the second straight day, which could mean that they’re very thin at corner for the date with the Eagles.

    Giants not showing improvement on any front

    How many times can I say I told you so?

    I kept saying my Giants needed to go for the first pick in the draft and rebuild. I kept saying they were a last place team. I said Tuck, JPP, Kiwanuka, Snee, Bass, Diehl, and Nicks were through and should be filing their retirement papers.

    I’m not happy I was right.

    Get the Ryan Nassib era started already. Eli should ride off into the sunset. He had his glory but his arm is shot and he can’t handle the pressure of a pass rush any more.

    Get Moore into the starting lineup. Get Hankins there. Start playing for the future.

    Amukamara and McBride both looked very good at corner against KC.

    Only Philly has more problems. They have no defense at all.

    I believe the team that was dropped 38-0 by the powerhouse Panthers would be the team with more problems…but hey….I’ve been called crazy before.

    Why is it that when the Packers have injuries they’re referred to as whiners while the Giants are just brave little men trying the best they can?

    Even if they go 0-16, the Giants will not fire Coughlin nor let him go out like that. Gilbride and/or Fewell will be gone.
