Rodgers-Cromartie, Apple questionable for Giants

The Giants may get a couple of cornerbacks back in the lineup for their attempt to shut down Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense on Sunday night.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Eli Apple are both listed as questionable for the game. Rodgers-Cromartie was active against the Vikings last Monday night, but never got on the field because of a groin injury that left him as an emergency option only. Apple was inactive with a hamstring injury.

Trevin Wade struggled in place of the two corners in the loss to the Vikings, so the Giants would be happy to get at least one of them back to face the Packers.

Running back Rashad Jennings is also listed as questionable due to the thumb injury that has kept him from playing the last two weeks. The Giants will play without tight end Larry Donnell, who suffered a concussion against Minnesota, as well as right tackle Marshall Newhouse, safety Darian Thompson and safety Nat Berhe.

    As a Giants fan, i’m really tired of these injuries. The defense had been playing great until the secondary all got hurt at once.
