There is a possibility that running back Rashad Jennings, who has not played since Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals, couldplay Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. The Giants listed the running back, still recovering from an MCL sprain, as doubtful. It sounds, however, like they are hopeful Jennings might be able to play.
"He is running around and doing all those kinds of things. We are going to have to make sure that he is ready to compete in a game. We will list him as such and then talk about him when we get inside," head coach Tom Coughlin said.
Cornerback Zack Bowman (illness) is listed as questionable, along with defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka (knee) and defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (calf).
Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back/hamstring), punter Steve Weatherford (back/ankle) and guard Weston Richburg (ankle) are all listed as probable. The Giants appear to be uncertain about Weatherford, despite listing him as probable.
"The worry is can he make this flight," Coughlin said.
That could lead to the signing of another punter before Saturday's 4 p.m. ET deadline.
Considering the already depleted state of the Giants' roster that injury report is about the best the Giants could have hoped for.
If Bowman is able to play that at least gives the Giants a pair of experienced cornerbacks. Richburg appeared to have suffered a serious injury when he was carted off on Monday, but is likely to play. Weatherford has dealt with the ankle issue all season. The back injury, however, is new.
