Giants' Injury Report: Jason Pierre-Paul

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Here is the first Giants' injury report of the week as they look ahead to Sunday's game with the Chargers.

Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who missed the New York Giants' victory over the Washington Redskins Sunday because of a lingering shoulder injury, worked on the side with trainers during Wednesday's practice.

"Anything is encouraging if we can get him out on the field," said Giants' head coach Tom Coughlin.

Pierre-Paul was one of several Giants who practiced on a limited basis. Running back Brandon Jacobs (knee), cornerback Trumaine McBride (groin) and cornerback Corey Webster (ankle) all worked in some capacity. None of those three played against Washington.

Cornerback Terrell Thomas (knee) did not practice. After three surgeries for torn ACLs Thomas skips at least one practice each week.

With McBride out last week second-year man Jayron Hosley started. Coughlin said Hosley "did OK." Rookie Damontre Moore saw his first extensive action at defensive end due to Pierre-Paul's absence, and Coughlin said Moore is a "necessary part of the rotation right now."
