New York Giants guard Justin Pugh will likely miss his fifth straight game when his team hosts the Dallas Cowboys on ‘Sunday Night Football.’

Just as all of New York Football Giants fandom was becoming incredibly excited about the return of their best offensive lineman, it appears those prospects have been halted.

According to Newsday’s Art Stapleton, Justin Pugh will most likely miss his fifth straight game when the Giants welcome in the 11-1 Dallas Cowboys to MetLife Stadium for Sunday Night Football.

It’s a big time blow for an offense that has been struggling, especially since Pugh was injured in Week 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

It’s also a disappointment considering this will mark the first game Big Blue will be without Jason Pierre-Paul, who underwent successful sports hernia surgery this past week and will miss the remainder of the campaign.

The good news is New York will have Shane Vereen at its disposal after he was activated off IR.

Pugh or no Pugh, the Giants and Cowboys will kickoff at 8:30 p.m. ET tonight and can be seen on NBC.
