Giants Wilson & Rogers Go To IR, Kuhn & Brown Activated

A disappointing 2013 season came to a premature end for New York Giants halfback David Wilson yesterday. The second year player from Virginia Tech was placed on season-ending injured reserve by the G-men, who activated running back Andre Brown from the injured list as well. Meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden sat out practice with a pulled hamstring and looks unlikely to play on Sunday.

New York Giants: 5 Players That Need To Improve In Second Half Of Season

The New York Football Giants had their worst start since 1976, and the team did not get its first win until Week 7 of the regular season.

The New York Football Giants seek to extend their winning streak to a modest two games as the team faces the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. The Giants fluid offensive line situation changed again this week, after starting center David Baas was placed on season ending injured reserve. The Eagles enter the contest relatively healthy, although last week’s starting quarterback, Nick Foles, is likely out with a concussion.
