Darian Thompson suffered a shoulder injury in Saturday's game against the Bills.

It feels like it's deja vu all over again for the New York Giants.

Monday's practice was closed to the public and the media, but the Giants announced that rookie safety Darian Thompson suffered a shoulder injury and is "week to week"

Darian Thompson has a shoulder injury and will be updated on a week-to-week basis, team says. #Giants

The injury was suffered Saturday in the Giants preseason game against the Buffalo Bills.

The Giants haven't said what the injury is, but Ben McAdoo is scheduled to speak to the media Tuesday, and will almost certainly be asked for an update then.

This probably means the end of the promising rookie's preseason. Assuming this isn't a long-term injury, it gives the Giants a chance to see their other safeties -- such as last year's injured trio of Nat Berhe, Mykkele Thompson, and Bennett Jackson -- alongside Landon Collins. Thompson, remember, suffered a concussion on Saturday. Giants fans, however, can be excused if reading about an injury to an exciting rookie is an unpleasant, and entirely too familiar feeling.
