New York Sports-Kings:
Giants CB Corey Webster is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s matchup against the Carolina Panthers. He missed a second straight day of practice yesterday and the cause of the injury is currently unknown.
According to ESPN New York, it’s unclear how the injury occurred as he practiced Wednesday with no noticeable problems.
“Evidently he has an issue with his hip flexor, in that area somewhere,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said after Friday’s practice. “He couldn’t practice yesterday and he couldn’t go today.”
If Webster doesn’t end up playing, he’ll be replaced by Aaron Ross. Ross didn’t play a single snap against Denver last week but looks like he better be ready to go.
With Webster likely not playing, Prince Amukamara will likely cover Panthers #1 wide receiver Steve Smith for the whole game. Terrell Thomas has been the slot cornerback in the first two games, but it’s unclear whether or not he’ll stay there this week.

New York Giants (0-2) at Carolina Panthers (0-2)
The Panthers are now 2-14 since 2011 in games decided by a touchdown or less. Part of my reasoning for them having a big season was that their record in close games would even out, as it always does in the long run, but it’s very possible that won’t happen this year. They need to fire Ron Rivera. They should have done it last off...
