The New York Giants Friday injury report remained unchanged from what it has been all of this week as the Giants prepare for a critical Monday night game against the Indianapolis Colts. Running back Rashad Jennings has already been ruled out due to his MCL sprain. He is not practicing. Defenseive tackle Cullen Jenkins (calf strain) has also not practiced this week.

Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and punter Steve Weatherford have practiced on a limited basis. The Giants could use an able Rodgers-Cromartie against the Colts' top-ranked passing attack. That seems unlikely, though.

"I don’t believe we can do that as this point," head coach Tom Coughlin said Friday.

Offensively, the Giants' running attack will once again be in the hands of rookie Andre Williams and veteran Peyton Hillis. Defensively, with Rodgers-Cromartie uncertain, Jenkins likely out and Jon Beason having gone on IR this week, the Giants could look somewhat different personnel-wise on Monday.

Coughlin also said it would be "a reach" to think that offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz, who has just begun to practice, could be activated from short-term IR by Monday.

The biggest injury to watch for Indianapolis is the elbow injury that caused wide receiver Reggie Wayne to miss last weekend's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wayne was a full participant in Friday's Colts practice.
