The New York Giants have released their Week 6 Injury Report and there’s potentially bad news on the defensive line.
The Week 6 Injury Report is out and the New York Giants have more bad news. DE Jason Pierre-Paul, who’s barely missed a snap this season, was held out of practice with a groin injury. The Giants’ pass rush is dead last in the NFL as is, they’re worse off without JPP. His status will be updated throughout the week.
CB Eli Apple didn’t practice either as he deals with his own groin injury. Apple hasn’t practiced much in recent weeks with a hamstring strain. His injuries continue to impact what is already a decimated Giants’ secondary. The full Injury Report from Wednesday’s practice is listed below.
- Eli Apple, CB – DNP (groin)
- Nat Berhe, S – DNP (concussion)
- Larry Donnell, TE – LP (concussion)
- Dwyane Harris, WR – LP (toe)
- Rashad Jennings, RB – LP (thumb)
- Devon Kennard, LB – DNP (concussion)
- Marshall Newhouse, T – DNP (calf)
- Jason Pierre-Paul, DE – DNP (groin)
- Darian Thompson, S – DNP (foot)
- Olivier Vernon, DE – LP (wrist)
CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is listed with the groin injury he re-aggravated at Green Bay but his practice status is unclear.
Thompson, Newhouse and Apple not practicing isn’t much of a surprise.
Nat Berhe’s concussion is concerning. He’s been out since Week 3 and has yet to clear the NFL concussion protocol. Larry Donnell suffered a concussion in Week 4 and has since returned to practice. Devon Kennard’s status is one to keep an eye on, and should become clear by Friday.
Rashad Jennings continues to practice and hopes to play this Sunday against the Ravens. He’s been sidelined since Week 2 and the Giants are 0-3 without him.
