Justin Pugh will have to wait at least one more week before returning to the lineup for the New York Giants. As expected, the offensive lineman has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers as he recovers from a knee injury.

Pugh, perhaps, will be able to play next week when the Giants face the Dallas Cowboys. The Giants are also hoping Shane Vereen, out since a Week 3 forearm injury, will be able to play against Dallas.

Also out this Sunday against Pittsburgh will be safety Nat Berhe and linebacker Mark Herzlich, both of whom have concussions, and defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa, who hasa knee injury.

Offensive linemen Marshall Newhouse (knee) and Brett Jones (calf) are both questionable, giving them a 50-50 chance of playing.

The Giants (8-3) will be trying to win a seventh straight game when they face the 6-5 Steelers at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.
