Two critical members of the New York Giants, offensive guard Justin Pugh and center Weston Richburg, reportedly did not practice Monday when the Giants returned to work following their bye week. Defensive end Damontre Moore is also apparently dealing with an injury.
#Giants say LG Justin Pugh is in concussion protocol. DE Damontre Moore has a hamstring injury. C Weston Richburg still dealing with ankle.— James Kratch (@JamesKratch) November 23, 2015
Pugh was assessed for a concussion following the game two weeks ago against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was cleared, but woke up feeling ill before the game a week ago against the New England Patriots. He is now back in the concussion protocol.
Richburg left the Patriots game with what was said to be a high ankle sprain. When Moore suffered the hamstring injury is not known. He is reportedly no longer in a walking boot, which he was following the New England game. He has not, however, done any running.
Weston Richburg NOT in a protective walking boot. Getting around ok. Some swelling, but optimistic about testing on field later this week.— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) November 23, 2015
On the good side of the injury ledger, cornerback Prince Amukamara, tight end Larry Donnell and middle linebacker Uani 'Unga were all back at practice on Monday.
Amukamara has missed five games with a pectoral injury. No word on whether he will have wear any type of harness.
