The names Olivier Vernon and Orleans Darkwa were expected to be on the injury list for the New York Giants on Wednesday, but there were a couple of unexpected additions as the Giants began practices in preparation for Sunday’s road game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Linebacker Jonathan Casillas (ankle/wrist) and running back Shane Vereen (calf) joined Vernon (ankle), Darkwa (back, Bobby Hart (ankle) J.T. Thomas (groin) as players who missed practice on Wednesday.
In what might be a bit of good news, middle linebacker B.J. Goodson (shin) was listed as a limited participant. Goodson has not played in the last two games after making 18 tackles in the season opener.
