The Giants listed six players as out for Sunday’s game against the Eagles on their final injury report of the week, but that number has dropped to five.
It’s not because anyone is feeling better all of a sudden, though. Guard Chris Snee has been placed on injured reserve, ending his season and likely sending him toward surgery on his hip. Snee’s spot on the line will be taken by David Diehl against the Eagles and his spot on the roster now belongs to linebacker Jon Beason.
Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that there are likely more moves coming for the Giants before Sunday. The Giants may have to elevate Charles James from the practice squad because of their injuries at cornerback and Vacchiano reports they’d like to activate safety Will Hill after Hill returned from a four-game suspension this week. Because of the short numbers, Beason may be active despite never practicing with the team.
One spot that could open up is the one belonging to center David Baas. Vacchiano reports that Baas may need surgery on his neck that would end his season. Tight end Adrien Robinson is another possibility as he’s been ruled out for Week Five and has yet to be active this season because of a foot injury.
