Giants rule out six players for Sunday

Linebacker Jon Beason is taking a physical with the Giants on Friday and the trade sending him to Jersey from the Panthers will become official if he passes.

That seems like it might be difficult given the litany of injuries Beason has dealt with in the last few years, but the Giants have so many injured players right now that the bar for health might not be all that high. Six players have been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Eagles and cornerback Corey Webster, who has missed the last two games, is doubtful with a groin injury.

Guard Chris Snee is likely headed for season-ending hip surgery and he’ll be out along with center David Baas, who has been sidelined the last couple of weeks by a neck injury. If Webster’s out, he’ll be joined by cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Jayron Hosley. The lack of cornerbacks may necessitate a roster move to bring up Charles James from the practice squad to round out the depth chart.

Defensive tackle Linval Joseph will miss the game with ankle and knee injuries, opening the door to playing time for rookie Jonathan Hankins. Tight end Adrien Robinson remains out with a foot injury and defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins and wide receiver Louis Murphy are both questionable for a very black and blue Big Blue.

    Just to give you an indication of how the last couple of years have been for an Eagles fan– i’ll still be holding my breath on Sunday. I wouldn’t put a dollar on this game. The Eagles have become real good at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

    Peyton, “Knock knock”
    Eli, “Who’s there”
    Peyton, “Owen”
    Eli, “Owen who?”
    Peyton, “0-5″!!

    Lost season…sigh. Time to pull out the DVDs of the last 2 Super Bowl runs!

    @RexCanCoach: Boy, that joke never gets old.

    Tough season for the Giants. Everyone says, “Next man up,” and that injuries aren’t an excuse, but when more than 10% of your roster is out it is hard to be competitive. The only really good news is if the team can get healthy and heat up down the stretch they might be able to make the post season. No one else is looking like they’re going to run away with that division.

    Sweet karma. Moral of the story – Don’t unfairly take 36 million dollars away from your opponents. #HTTR

    I couldn’t have said it better myself. Except to add, now Mora go spend $36 million on some new players. Everyone on that team is either old, injured, or just not any good.

    Well, THAT sounds like a sure-fire recipe for getting your first win on the season.

    what are the redskins going to do next year when their entire defense retires??

  9. thegronk87 says: Oct 4, 2013 3:03 PM

    0-5

    Both the Giants and the Eagles are irrelevant. The Dolphins will win the superbowl and the hearts of every football fan in America.

    The string of injuries has given the backups their opportunity to step in and show what they can do. Pugh, Cordle, Brewer, McBride, Hankins, and now Michael Cox are all young players who have the chance to show that they deserve to be starters. If there’s a silver lining to the dark cloud that is this season, that’s it.

    Price of the salary cap room John Mara took from the Cowboys: $10 million.

    Price of the salary cap room Mara took from the Redskins: $36 million.

    The price of the joy Redskins and Cowboy fans have seeing John Mara’s team at 0-4: priceless.

    Mumble what you want but the bottom line is, even at 0-4 the Giants are still in it! Sure they’re pathetic right now but so is everyone else in the division. With a win Sunday they can hang around and if they can click soon they can still win the divison with possibly an 8-8 or 7-9 record. Once they click anything can happen as they’ve demonstrated in the past. Laugh if you will now but remember, they’ve done it before. Don’t count these guys out just yet.

    Same here. Eli could be ruled out and I still don’t trust the Eagles to win this one.

    There’s another built in excuse 4 little blue (injuries). Yet they forget to mention ALL teams have injuries. The giants also forget to mention that over the past 5 yrs (since Rex has come to NY), the Jets n Giants have the EXACT same record w/the same amount of postseason victories….hmmmm

    So the Giants are 0-4 and the Skins, Eagles, and Cowboys fans come out of the wood work to talk trash. Can any of you please remind me how many Super Bowl games any of your team has won recently? The Giants are having a terrible year, and terrible years happen. Injuries happen too and they’re no excuse. The Giants are being coached badly and the players are playing badly.

    That being said.. The Skins fans need to stop crying about “John Mara taking money from them..” as they agreed to the rules along with every other team. They tried to circumvent the agreement they made. They got penalized and it wasn’t Mara who did it. It was all the owners who voted to penalize the Skins and the Cowboys. The only teams that did not vote to penalize them were the Skins, Cowboys, and Raiders (who abstained as Al Davis often did).

    You’re just angry that the Giants have been more successful than your Skins or Cowboys. At least Eagles fans while hating the Giants can respect they’re still going to be a team that can be hard to play just like we do to them.

    The big difference between the two is one team has won a SB within that timeframe and the other just knocked on the door. Isn’t winning a SB what it’s all about here or should we just be happy making it pretty close like the same old Jets? I’ll take 4 losing seasons in a row and a couple SB wins over almost getting there once a decade and being dissappointed everytime.

    Two years ago the shoe was on the other foot. The Eagles came to Giants Stadium battered and led by Vince Young. We thought we’d walk right over them and we got smoked. I hope the Eagles come to town thinking they just need to show up. We did that in Carolina and we still have the welts on our rears to prove that’s bad thinking.

    p.s. – Real men don’t use the word “karma”. That word is saved for 15 yr old girls who tweet gossip about each other.
