Unsurprisingly, the New York Giants are already listing starting running back Rashad Jennings as out for Sunday's bout against the Dallas Cowboys. It was suspected when it was announced that he had sprained his MCL against the Atlanta Falcons that Jennings would be out through the Giants' week 8 bye.
Expected or not, this does come as a blow to a team that could use their veteran bell-cow running back to help stabilize a shaky offense.
Also on the injury front, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie did not practice, as he deals with a troublesom IT band (and related issues). On a positive note, linebacker Spencer Paysinger was limited today, which is an improvement from last week.
Whether or not either will play this Sunday hasn't been stated yet.
Jon Beason and Steve Weatherford both full participants in practice
Good sign for LB Jon Beason that he was a FULL participant in practice. First time for Beason since his return.— Paul Schwartz (@NYPost_Schwartz) October 15, 2014
