New York Giants
We're kidding, but maybe we shouldn't be…the New York Giants injury situation is rising to almost comedic levels as the 0-4 Cleveland Browns come rolling into town. Paul Dottino of WFAN reports that Antrel Rolle is likely to miss the upcoming game (though Rolle disagrees), joining fellow starting safety Kenny Phillips in that regard. There's no reason to expect Hakeem Nicks back, and Rocky Bernard, Ramses Barden, Corey Webster and Michael Boley all sat out today's practice, leaving their status up in the air (at best). Oh, and we forgot to mention that right guard Chris Snee only did individual drills. Jenny Vrentas of NJ.com does her best to breakdown what is sure to be the least interesting and most time consuming part of an NFL beat writer's job. In perhaps an effort to keep herself sane in the face of covering a health and wellness beat when she signed up for sports reporting, she finds a silver lining: In better injury news for the Giants, C David Baas (han...

Everyone Cleveland Browns fan is willing to fire Mike Holmgren and everyone on the Browns coaching staff now, but the progress the Browns will make in 2012 should save his job. I know the Browns are literally defeated this season at 0-4, but the pieces to the puzzle are being filled right in front of our eyes. Firstly under Mike Holmgren in his first draft in 2010, he drafted cornerback...
One of the most telling parts of the gameplan will be revealed to open the game. Those are almost always going to be scripted plays to try and set the tone for the whole game. This week, the Browns were pretty successful to open the game, at least for the first few plays as they grabbed a quick first down. Let’s see exactly what they did and what they might have been telegraphing...
Just when you think the injury news can't get any worse … it does. The New York Giants released their final injury report for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, and it wasn't pretty. In addition to wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee/foot), who was ruled out on Thursday, defensive tackle Rocky Bernard (hip), cornerback Jayron Hosley (hamstring), wide receiver...
I'm a huge Eli Manning fan and think he's a sure fire Hall of Fame QB right now. However, the Giants can be an up and down team. This game should be perfect for them to get things straight on both sides of the ball. Their defensive line will harass Weeden all day and should land sacks from everyone on the line. Eli should be able to throw all over the field and hopefully...
New York Giants receiver Ramses Barden suffered a concussion during the team’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football and, unfortunately, is unlikely to play against the Cleveland Browns, according to numerous reports.

When the concussion was suffered is uncertain, but Barden complained of a headache during the week and was diagnosed...
In a surprising addition to the injury report today, the Giants announced the WR Ramses Barden suffered a concussion in the loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday.
With the health of WR Hakeem Nicks already in question, and the secondary losing players like, well, like they do every year, can they overcome another key injury? Losing key players at the beginning of the season seems...
New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has ruled out wide receiver Hakeem Nicks for Sunday’s game against the Browns.
Wide receiver Ramses Barden still hasn’t been cleared after suffering a concussion this past Sunday.
It looks like the Giants’ top three receivers this week will be Victor Cruz, Domenik Hixon and Reuben Randle.
Cornerback Corey Webster also has a hamstring...
The New York Giants will be without wide receiver Ramses Barden, safety Kenny Phillips, wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, defensive tackle Rocky Bernard, and cornerback Jayron Hosley for Sunday’s game against the Browns.
David Diehl and Keith Rivers have been listed as doubtful.
Michael Boley, Antrel Rolle, Chris Snee and Corey Webster are questionable.
David Baas and Michael Coe are probable.
Browns starting strong safety T.J. Ward returned to practice Thursday after undergoing surgery on his right thumb this past weekend.
Ward wore a black cast as he participated in individual and team drills, a sign he will likely play Sunday when the Browns (0-4) visit the New York Giants (2-2). Ward was limited in practice, according to the teams injury report. He broke his thumb...
According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, safety Antrel Rolle and cornerback Corey Webster were held out of Thursday’s practice.
Ramses Barden, Rockey Benard and Kenny Phillips also didn’t practice.
The good news is that David Baas, Chris Snee, Michael Coe, Jayron Hosley, David Diehl and Keith Rivers all practiced.
Jimmy Haslam III won't spend his first days as owner of the Browns handing out pink slips.
Haslam, whose $1 billion purchase of Cleveland's franchise is expected to be approved by NFL owners later this month, said Thursday through a team spokesman that he has no plans to make any personnel changes ''until after the year.'' At 0-4, the Browns are the only...
Browns wide receiver Josh Cribbs returned to practice today, just six days after getting blasted in the head by Ravens linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
The return of Cribbs was a welcome sight for Browns coach Pat Shurmur, because two of his other receivers were still missing: Mohamed Massaquoi with his pulled hamstring, and Travis...
Cleveland Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson indicated this week that he sees some holes in the New York Giants defense that he can run the ball through.
“I think that if we cover the edges and run hard, no doing all this juking and that, one move and go, I think we can have success in the running game,” Richardson said.
Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora wants to see...
