The final practice before the New York Giants take on the New Orleans Saints in their home opener is in the books.

Once again the injury report is a light one with just two names listed. One of those names, however, has to give Giants' fans pause.

Jason Pierre-Paul is currently listed as "questionable" with a sore shoulder. JPP was held out of practice on Thursday, citing shoulder soreness. The Giants didn't consider the sore shoulder to a big deal, and JPP said "It allowed me to play last Sunday. I'm not even worried about my shoulder. We're good. I'll be out there Sunday ... maybe."

Defensive tackle Robert Thomas, the other name on the injury report, is once again ruled OUT with an illness. The Giants haven't elaborated on what the specific illness he has, but he was sighted on the sidelines at practice on Thursday, so hopefully he is on the mend.

The Giants played with just three defensive tackles -- and no back-up nose tackle -- against the Dallas Cowboys. Earlier this week they re-signed massive nose tackle Montori Hughes and released kicker Randy Bullock.

The Saints' injury report is both longer and more concerning. Cornerback Delvin Breaux's broken leg will obviously keep him out of the game. Meanwhile, LB Dannell Ellerbe (Quad) and TE Josh Hill (ankle) have also been ruled out.

Left Tackle Terron Armstead is listed as questionable with a quad injury.
