Giants Limping Into Season Finale
With wide receiver Steve Smith and punt returner Will Blackmon already ruled out for this Sunday’s game at Washington, the New York Giants are hoping for a little bit of good news today regarding #2 wide-out Hakeem Nicks and center Shaun O’Hara.
Giants beat writer Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com reported yesterday that Nicks has a broken toe and is considered questionable at best for the Giants’ regular season finale. If Nicks misses this Sunday’s game, that would mean Mario Manningham would once again become the #1 receiver on the depth chart, followed by Derek Hagan and Duke Calhoun.
As far as O’Hara is concerned, his nagging foot injury resurfaced yesterday and caused him to miss practice. The anchor of Big Blue’s offensive line has already missed 9 games this season with various foot injuries and is also considered questionable for this Sunday.
There were several other players listed on yesterday’s early injury report, which included running back Ahmad Bradshaw, along with defensive ends Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora. However, the injuries for all three are considered minor in nature.
