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 (hand) returned to practice, and RT David Diehl (knee), LB Keith Rivers (hamstring), CB Jayron Hosley (hamstring) and CB Michael Coe (hamstring) were participating in drills during the media access period.


The return of Hosley, Coe and Rivers to the back seven shouldn't be under appreciated, but unfortunately for Giants fans it looks like the Giants may be starting Tyler Sash and Stevie Brown at safety, and misfit rookie Reuben Randle may be battling the Amazing Invisible Jerrell Jernigan for all the reps as the third wide receiver.

As for the Browns, Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News passes along via Twitter the news that Browns' WR Mohammed Massaquoi and TE Travis Benjamin are still not practicing. So, you know, there's that.

UPDATE: Hakeem Nicks has been officially ruled out for Sunday's game, while Tom Coughlin remains optimistic that Rolle (knee swelling) will be able to play.
