Right tackle Marshall Newhouse is not expected to practice early this week for the New York Giants after suffering a calf injury Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Coach Ben McAdoo said Monday that “we don’t know how significant” the injury is at this point.
When Newhouse left Sunday’s game, second-year man Bobby Hart played the final dozen snaps. McAdoo said that Hart and Will Beatty, inactive for the first two games, would compete for time at that spot if Newhouse is unable to play this weekend against the Washington Redskins.
Mykkele Thompson “out a few weeks”
McAdoo did not address the nature of the knee injury suffered by Thompson on Sunday, but said the reserve safety would be “out a few weeks.” That leaves the Giants with only three healthy safeties on the 53-man roster, although Leon Hall did work there a bit during the preseason. The Giants have rookie safety Andrew Adams on their practice squad.
Rashad Jennings to be limited
McAdoo said running back Rashad Jennings ”banged up” his hand against the Saints. He said he expects Jennings to be limited when the Giants return to full practice on Wednesday.
