Da'Rel Scott, in line to potentially start at running back for the New York Giants on Sunday vs. the Denver Broncos, suffered a knee injury during practice on Wednesday, according to the team's official injury report. The extent of the injury is not yet known.
Scott, of course, replaced David Wilson on Sunday after Wilson's two fumbles during the Giants' 36-31 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Brandon Jacobs, signed on Tuesday, practiced for the first time on Wednesday.
Here is the full injury report for the Giants
Did Not Practice
CB Prince Amukamara (concussion)
LB Dan Connor (neck)
OL David Diehl (thumb)
TE Adrien Robinson (foot)
C David Baas (knee)
DE Damontre Moore (shoulder)
RB Da'Rel Scott (knee)
The presence of Baas at practice may be significant. We will have to watch this week to see if he progresses enough in his return from a knee injury that he could play Sunday, allowing Kevin Boothe to move back to guard.
