Zack Bowman was released from the hospital this afternoon with viral gastroenteritis.— Tom Rock (@TomRock_Newsday) November 6, 2014
The 2014 New York Giants are apparently cursed at the cornerback position. Walter Thurmond, Trumaine McBride, Prince Amukamara and sixth-round draft choice Bennett Jackson are on injured reserve. Now, veteran Zack Bowman, the probable starter opposite Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, has been hospitalized with what is being called "a lower abdominal injury."
If Bowman can't play Sunday, that leaves the Giants with Rodgers-Cromartie, who is battling his own leg and back issues, Jayron Hosley, Chandler Fenner and newly-signed Mike Harris and Chykie Brown. Yikes!
There was, however, good news on starting left guard Weston Richburg. Head coach Tom Coughlin said Richburg, carted off with an ankle injury Monday night, took about half the snaps during Thursday's practice.
"I expect him to go," Coughlin said.
Per the Giants' official injury report, here is the rest of what we know:
Offensive lineman Adam Snyder and defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka both did not practice. Both have knee issues.
Running back Rashad Jennings (knee), punter Steve Weatherford (ankle/back), defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (calf) and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back/hamstring) were all listed as limited.
