While New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin didn’t offer injury
updates on running back Andre Brown or defensive lineman Chris Canty, he did
shed light on safety Kenny Phillips and linebackers Chase Blackburn and Keith
Rivers, reports Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com.
Brown sustained a shoulder injury during Sunday’s loss to
the Pittsburgh Steelers, while Canty injured his groin. Coughlin didn’t update
either player’s status, but did say that Blackburn and Rivers could return to
practice this week.
Coughlin added that the Giants didn’t feel ready to play
Phillips last weekend against the Steelers. The safety told reporters last week
that he was ready to return, and Coughlin confirmed his absence wasn’t due to a
setback but simply a decision made by the team.
Tight end Martellus Bennett appeared to injure his leg
Sunday as he was walking with a noticeable limp following the game, according
to Youngmisuk. However, Bennett no longer appears to be hampered by whatever
minor injury he sustained last weekend.
