The New York Giants did not practice on Christmas Day, but still had to issue an injury report per NFL rules. The injury list is one that could leave them short-handed in Sunday’s season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Cornerback Corey Ballentine (back), linebacker Lorenzo Carter (knee), linebacker Alec Ogletree (back) and offensive tackle Mike Remmers (concussion) were listed as ‘Did Not Participate.’
Listed as limited were cornerback Sam Beal (shoulder), tight end Rhett Ellison (concussion), offensive lineman Nick Gates (shoulder) and wide receiver Darius Slayton (knee).
Ogletree and Remmers did not play vs. the Washington Redskins in Week 16. Ellison has not played in several weeks. Beal has had prior shoulder issues. Gates is the replacement for Remmers. Slayton limped his way through much of last Sunday’s game.
Wide receiver Nelson Agholor (knee), tight end Zach Ertz (ribs) and offensive tackle Lane Johnson (ankle) were listed as ‘Did Not Participate’ by the Eagles. They also did not practice and issued as estimated report.
