Just days after losing three receivers to season-ending injuries, the New York Giants latest injury report has grown.
Linebacker Jonathan Casillas (neck), safety Landon Collins (ankle) and receiver Sterling Shepard (ankle) are new additions to this week’s list. Shepard is part of the receiving group that on Sunday saw three guys go down with ankle injures (Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall) and one with a broken foot (Dwayne Harris).
Shepard, who was not out on the field at the start of practice, was seen in a walking boot during Tuesday’s locker room period. He said he was unsure about when he might be able to play.
Casillas was injured early in the second half of lat week’s loss, having suffered a burner. He was outside for the start of practice and did some running on a side field with running back Paul Perkins (ribs) who remains on the injury report for a second straight week.
Collins was not present on the field. Collins said after the game Sunday that he got kicked in the leg and that he tried to fight his way through his injury. However, he was unable to do so, coming out to gather his bearings.
Defensive end Olivier Vernon (ankle) remains unable to practice. Vernon, who last week missed his first career NFL game, worked on a back field with a trainer.
Center Weston Richburg (concussion) was on the sideline at the start of practice. He remains int he league’s protocol.
Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was also not spotted at practice. However, Rodgers-Cromartie was not listed on the pre-practice injury report distribute by the team, so it was unclear if his ailment had anything to do with what looked like a strained hamstring suffered by the veteran cornerback last week when while chasing down a Chargers receiver, Rodgers-Cromartie seemed to pull up lame.
