The New York Giants issued an amazingly short injury report on Friday in advance of their Wild-Card Weekend playoff game Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, still recuperating from core muscle surgery, is out. Defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa, dealing with a hamstring injury, is doubtful.
That is the entire injury report.
Several players were listed as limited practice participants. Those were — TE Jerell Adams (shoulder), S Nat Berhe (concussion), CB Janoris Jenkins (back), CB Coty Sensabaugh (ankle). OT Bobby Hart (forearm) was a full participant.
Thus, the Giants are pretty healthy heading into Sunday’s game.
This will make for some interesting decisions on which players are inactive against the Packers. Could Berhe, out since Week 12, dress for the game? Coach Ben McAdoo said that Berhe has yet to be cleared from the concussion protocol, even though he is not on the injury report. Which defensive back would sit if he plays? Will the Giants dress wide receiver Tavarres King who had a 44-yard catch on the game-winning drive against the Washington Redskins last week?
For the Packers, running back James Starks (concussion) and cornerback Quinten Rollins (neck/concussion) are out. Several players are questionable. They are: OT Bryan Bulaga (abdomen), WR Randall Cobb (ankle), LB Jayrone Elliott (hand), LB Nick Perry (hand), CB Damarious Randall (knee), LB Joe Thomas (back), OL J.C. Tretter (knee).
