Da'Rel Scott suffered a hamstring injury Thursday. The severity is yet to be determined.

The battered New York Giants' running back corps took another hit Thursday night when Da'Rel Scott was helped off the field in the fourth quarter with a right hamstring injury.

Scott, cut a week ago and re-signed Tuesday because of the neck injury suffered by David Wilson, is reportedly going for further tests to determine the severity of the injury. Art Stapleton of The Record tweeted that Scott's condition "Did not look too promising after the game."

Reports have indicated that Wilson could be out for anywhere from several weeks to the rest of the season. If Scott is going to miss time, what will the Giants do at running back?

Brandon Jacobs gave the Giants a tremendous effort Thursday night, carrying 22 times for 106 yards. It was his first 100-yard game since Dec. 11, 2011 vs. the Dallas Cowboys and the most carries he has had in a game since he carried 26 times Sept. 27, 2009 vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

It is hard to imagine, however, that the 31-year-old Jacobs can continue to handle that workload -- and to play that well.

The only other running back on the Giants' roster is rookie Michael Cox, a seventh-round pick who has not carried the ball yet this season.

Scott, a third-year player, has carried 20 times this season for 73 yards (3.7 yards per carry) and caught 11 passes.
