“He hasn’t played in a while, so I can’t say how much he can give us,” Coughlin said of Jennings. “He knows his limitations and knows his own body. We trust him. At this point, we need a win.”
“There is a lot of concern,” head coach Tom Coughlin said. “We’ve lost a player or two in each game, it seems like. That’s not a good one. Prince was playing well.”
The injury-ravaged Rangers will be without inspirational captain and all-situation defenseman Ryan McDonagh for the majority of a packed November schedule.
Coughlin doubted he would be able to count on Rodgers-Cromartie as an every-down player. Fewell added that the veteran has practiced well, but he was concerned how he will feel Saturday.
Running back Rashad Jennings will not play on Monday night when the Giants host the Colts at MetLife Stadium.
John Moore could be in line for a suspension from the NHL. The game was surprisingly rough considering these teams are in different conferences and meet only twice per season.
The Giants (3-4) announced Monday that Beason will need surgery to repair his injured right foot. The procedure has not yet been scheduled.
The Islanders suffered a bad break Thursday, though they did manage to get back in the win column against the Bruins.
“Right now, I’d say it’s 50-50. I’m still deciding if the smart thing is to go ahead and get it fixed and get ready for next season.”
The Bills had little choice but to try a pass from the 2-yard line with 1 second left in the game. Their top two running backs had been carted off the field in the first half.
The Giants (3-4), already dealing with a hobbled Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, will have extra time to heal heading into their bye week.
New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz has no doubts that he will recover from a serious injury to his right knee and return to football next season.
The Nets said Thursday that X-rays and a CT scan revealed no fractures or bone injuries. Brook Lopez missed most of last season after breaking the foot Dec. 21.
Cruz had surgery to repair a torn patellar tendon in his right knee. McBride, who had been the nickel corner since Walter Thurmond was injured in Week 2, had surgery to repair a fractured thumb.
From here on, it has to be out of sight, out of mind. Immediate affairs preclude sentimentality over a much-loved comrade.
