Rashad Jennings appears unlikely to return vs. Colts

Jennings is still not practicing.

The New York Giants appear likely to once again be without the services of leading rusher Rashad Jennings when they face the Indianapolis Colts next Monday. Jennings (MCL sprain) has missed the Giants' last two games and hoped to return after last week's bye. It sounds like that won't happen.

Jennings did not practice on Monday.

"He's not ready to go," head coach Tom Coughlin said.

Jennings told reporters he "would be lying" if he had any idea when he would be ready to return. "I'm gonna do all I can," he said.

"I'm gonna wake up one day and it's gonna be fine. That's what I'm waiting on."

Jennings has 396 yards rushing on 91 carries, 4.4 yards per rushing attempt.

Without Jennings, the running game has struggled with rookie Andre Williams in the lead role. Williams is averging only 3.1 yards per carry thus far, with 280 yards on 89 carries.
