Rookie safety Darian Thompson suffered a setback Wednesday in his effort to return from a foot injury and his “season is now up in the air,” per a report from ESPN.
Thompson, the team’s third-round pick, has not played since sustaining the injury Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints. He practiced Monday for the first time and said afterwards that he felt he was “on the right track.”
Apparently, that isn’t the case. ESPN reported that Thompson was unable to make it through practice on Wednesday.
“It’s the same foot, the same injury that I’ve been dealing with,” Thompson said after practice. “I don’t know exactly what happened to it. That’s what I’m waiting to find out.”
Nat Berhe, who originally took over for Thompson in the starting lineup, has missed the last four games with a concussion. Berhe has still not been cleared for contact.
Undrafted free agent Andrew Adams has been filling in at safety, and it looks as if he will have to do so again this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
“Not much has changed, to be honest with you. We are not sure where Nat is, we are not sure where DT (Darian Thompson) is right now and really Landon (Collins) and Adams have been getting all the reps right there,” defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said on Thursday. “We are filtering in some other guys just in case, emergency guys right now, but yeah, we are thin. We thought we would be getting some guys back, but we are going to have to wait and see if that happens.”
Here is Thursday’s injury report for the Giants. The only new name on the list is defensive end Kerry Wynn, who has a concussion.
