Post-game injury updates

Giants’ safety Jason Pinnock (jaw) was reportedly taken to the hospital after Sunday’s game. An ambulance was parked directly outside the Giants’ locker room after the game to take Pinnock to a local hospital.

Head coach Brian Daboll had no information on the extent of the injuries to any of the six players who left Sunday’s game. Wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson (knee) was seen on crutches after the game.

Daboll said Robinson “looked like he was in a lot of pain.”

Daboll would not confirm the report that Adoree’ Jackson has a sprained MCL and will miss several weeks.

“I don’t know,” he said. “I haven’t talked to any of these guys yet.”

Adoree’ Jackson was injured returning a punt.

“It was one of those things. I tried to make a juke, thought it was good, he came down low. Leg was just in the ground. He got me that way,” Jackson said. “Nothing crazy like that. We were just out there playing ball.”

Daboll was asked if he regretted using Jackson, the team’s best cornerback, as a punt returner.

“It’s football. Obviously, it was unfortunate,” Daboll said. “There’s a risk playing every player regardless of what their position is. You just try to do what’s best for the team.. Hopefully, he’ll be back as soon as he can.”

Center Jon Feliciano (neck) said he would do everything possible to be ready for Thursday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

There were no updates on cornerback Fabian Moreau or right tackle Tyre Phillips.

New York Giants safety Jason Pinnock was ruled out of the game with a jaw injury.

Wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson has been ruled out of the game with an apparent knee injury early in the fourth quarter. He kept his feet to survive a hard tackle, but was seen grabbing his knee immediately after the play. Reporters at the game immediately reported that he was carried to the locker room and was immediately ruled out by the Giants.

Starting center Jon Feliciano has been ruled out with a neck injury. Former starting center Nick Gates replaced Feliciano.

Right tackle Tyre Phillips has been downgraded to OUT.

Meanwhile, cornerback Fabian Moreau left the field early in the third quarter with a rib injury and has been ruled out of the game. The depth in the Giants’ secondary continues to be tested as injuries mount.

Adoree’ Jackson will apparently be out several weeks after injuring his knee on Sunday.

Giants safety Jason Pinnock left the field during the two-minute drill. Pinnock was slow to get up after helping to defend a failed screen by the Lions.

The injury to Pinnock moved Darnay Holmes to safety and brought Rodarius Williams on to play cornerback.

The Giants announced that CB Adoree’ Jackson has been ruled out with a knee injury, while right tackle Tyre Phillips is questionable to return to today’s game against the Detroit Lions. Phillips is questionable with a neck injury.

Jackson left the field to head into the blue medical tent in the second quarter after leaving the field after taking a big hit when returning a punt. Jackson was later seen limping into the locker room. Rookie cornerback Cor’Dale Flott replaced Jackson on the Giants’ next defensive series.

Jackson, the Giants’ No. 1 cornerback, was returning punts because of a two-fumble game by Richie James against the Seattle Seahawks.

Phillips left the field early in the second quarter, leading to reserve tackle Matt Peart coming on the field. Peart, a 2020 third-round pick, recently returned to the active roster after being activated from the Giants’ PUP list.
