Of the six players on the Giants’ initial injury report today, three won’t practice, one will and two are somewhere in-between.
Safety Kenny Phillips (knee), center David Bass (shoulder) and tackle David Diehl (shoulder) won’t work as the Giants begin preparing for their game Monday night against the Redskins in Washington.
Phillips aggravated his knee injury in the Giants’ 38-10 defeat of Green Bay last Sunday. Coach Tom Coughlin said he hopes Phillips will practice tomorrow.
Baas and Diehl each has a shoulder injury. Coughlin described Diehl as “sore.”
Wide receiver Domenik Hixon will practice. He missed the game against the Packers with an ankle injury suffered at Cincinnati on November 11.
Running back Ahmad Bradshaw remains on the list with a sore foot. He has recently practiced just once a week, but Coughlin said, “Ahmad’s always out there, whatever he does. Maybe we’ll use him a little bit, but not a lot.”
Linebacker Jacquian Williams, who was inactive for the last five games with a knee injury, will do individual drills and “whatever else he can do and how fast we can push him along,” Coughlin said.
Running back Ryan Torain and Kregg Lumpkin , who were signed on Tuesday, will work with the scout team and perhaps get a snap or two with the offense. Coughlin said there is a “possibility” they will play in Washington."
