Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) and running back Brandon Jacobs (knee), who both missed last Sunday's game vs. the Washington Redskins, did not practice Thursday for the New York Giants. Tight end Brandon Myers also did not practice due to a groin injury.
Giants' head coach Tom Coughlin did not sound optimistic about the possibility of Pierre-Paul playing this weekend against the San Diego Chargers. Coughlin said Pierre-Paul is unlikely to practice Friday. He is hopeful, however, that both Jacobs and Myers will practice.
If Pierre-Paul can't go, rookie Damontre Moore will once again be third defensive end in the rotation. Moore played a season-high 17 snaps last week. If Myers is unable to play second-year man Adrien Robinson could see action for the first time this season.
