Larry Donnell thought everything would be fine after the bye week, that he would return to practice with the New York Giants after missing two games with a neck injury and resume his duties at tight end. Unfortunately, Donnell did not practice on Wednesday aand it appears possible that his season is in jeopardy.

"We thought it was just spasms and a strain," Donnell said on Wednesday. "I feel fine now, but I mean obviously something is wrong, so we've just got to figure it out and see what the process is."

Donnell told reporters he had just seen the doctor and undergone tests. Without Donnell, rookie Will Tye (15 catches) has stepped forward. Jerome Cunningham is the second tight end.

Donnell had 29 receptions in eight games before suffering the injury against the New Orleans Saints. The 27-year-old caught 63 passes a season ago.

The Giants had a lengthy injury list at Wednesday's practice despite coming off a bye week.
