Originally written September 28, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The New York Giants are coming off an abysmal 38-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers, and are subsequently off to their first 0-3 start since 1996. If the G-men are going to salvage whatever is left of their season, it starts with getting a much needed win against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4. What already appears to be a tall task looks even more insurmountable when you look at the Giants' list of inactives for this week. Protecting quarterback Eli Manning was a consistent issue for the Giants in Week 3 and unless somebody steps up it looks like Sunday could be another long day for Manning. Starting right guard Chris Snee (hip) and center David Baas (neck) were held out of practice this week. Neither of them traveled with the team to Kansas City and are officially ruled out for Sunday. Tight end Adrien Robinson will also miss Sunday's game with a foot injury.Fullback Henry Hynoski suffered a fractured shoulder last Sunday and has been placed on the season-ending injured reserve list. The Giants have signed John Connor to fill the void at fullback, and to help out on special teams.Offensive tackle David Diehl is listed as doubtful with a thumb injury. Diehl did make the trip with the team to Kansas City, which means there is still hope that Diehl could play in some capacity on Sunday. If Diehl does get into the game it would likely be on a limited basis, as he has not played since he sustained the injury, just over a month ago.On the defensive side of the ball, the Giants will be without cornerback Corey Webster, who is dealing with a hip flexor injury. Aaron Ross will likely get the start in Webster's absence. Linebacker Jacquian Williams (knee) and safety Cooper Taylor (shoulder) were limited in practice this week and are listed as questionable for Sunday. Cornerback Terrell Thomas (knee), linebacker Spencer Paysinger (hip), and defensive end Justin Trattou (ankle) were all limited participants in practice, but are listed as probable.Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?Follow Chris Hecker on Twitter: @HeckDynasty
