New York Giants safety Cooper Taylor is renting out his apartment for Super Bowl week.
The New York Football Giants conclude their 2013 campaign, much like they started it, with a long list of injuries. Their opponents this week, the Washington Redskins, list only linebacker Brian Orakpo on their injury report.
The Giants announced the move Wednesday. They also signed guard Eric Herman from their practice squad to replace Taylor on the active roster, and signed defensive back Travis Howard to the practice squad.
New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has endured a season that he would like to forget, and the former All-Pro defensive end will miss his third straight contest with an injured shoulder this week. The G-men also placed veteran running back Brandon Jacobs on injured reserve on Wednesday, ending his season. The visiting Seattle Seahawks will be missing starting linebacker K.J. Wright as they seek to cement the top seed in the NFC playoffs.
Andre Brown set career highs with 30 carries and 115 yards while running for the go-ahead 1-yard TD late in the third quarter — and he wasn’t activated until this past week.
What can’t Brown do for you? Andre Brown led the way with a 115-yard performance in Sunday’s 24-20 win over the Raiders.
With Jason Pierre-Paul still recovering from back surgery in early June, the Giants practiced Wednesday with fellow defensive end Justin Tuck sidelined by an undisclosed back problem.
There are two glaring questions surrounding the Giants’ draft: What are they going to do with their new QB? And how did they go seven rounds without taking any linebackers?
The Giants are hoping that newly-draft quarterback Ryan Nassib never plays, but are going to make sure he’s ready in case Eli Manning ever misses a game.
The Giants lost Kenny Phillips in the summer and hope that newly-drafted safety Cooper Taylor can fill his void.
