GIANTS' KENNY PHILLIPS DOUBTFUL; DAVID BAAS OUT FOR SUNDAY
"The injury polka continues today as news emerges about the status of several
Giants players for Sunday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Several sources report Giants safety, Kenny
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Austin Collie (17)
is tripped after a 7-yard gain in front of New York
Giants safety Kenny
(21) during the first quarter at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis on
September 19, 2010. UPI /Mark Cowan
Phillips (knee), is doubtful as of now. While Phillips had noted
that he was hopeful to play against the rival Cowboys, it looks as though he
won't be able to go. This will put the onus on fellow safety, Deon
Grant, to step-up in Phillips absence.
Additionally, center David
Baas is out for Sunday night. The headaches he experienced last
week have been labeled as "migraine-type" and seemingly occur as a result of a
neck injury Baas sustained earlier this fall. This looks to be something that
might keep Baas out for some time.
Defensive end, Osi Umenyiora (ankle) and linebackers,
Mark Herzlich (ankle)
and Spencer Paysinger (hamstring), are also ruled out against
On a brighter note, Mario
Manningham, Prince Amukamara, Brandon
Boley, Ahmad Bradshaw, and Dave
Tollefson are all probable for the game.
Giants 101 will keep updating up through gametime."
