Running back Rashad Jennings has missed the last three Giants games with a thumb injury, but it looks like he has a chance to make it back in the lineup this week.

Jennings has been listed as questionable, but said this week that he expects to be in the lineup against the Ravens. That should be a boost to a running game that’s also missing Shane Vereen and has produced 131 yards over the last two weeks.

Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is in a similar situation to Jennings. He’s listed as questionable due to a groin injury, but practiced on Thursday and Friday and is expected to play. Pierre-Paul and fellow starter Olivier Vernon have seen heavy workloads this season, so Pierre-Paul’s injury could lead to a change in how he’s used.

Safeties Nat Berhe and Darian Thompson and right tackle Marshall Newhouse remain out for the Giants. Cornerbacks Eli Apple and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie are questionable with Apple seen as less likely to play come Sunday.
