EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul and cornerback Trumaine McBride have been ruled out for Sunday night’s road game against the Washington Redskins.
Coach Tom Coughlin announced after practice Friday that backup running back Brandon Jacobs and cornerback Corey Webster also will miss the game.
Pierre-Paul, the NFC defensive player of the week after a clinching interception return against Green Bay earlier this month, reinjured his shoulder. He took 24 snaps against Dallas and did not practice this week. Mathias Kiwanuka will start for him.
McBride aggravated a groin injury and did not practice. Jayron Hosley will start.
New York expect Peyton Hillis to play for Jacobs, who ran for 75 yards last week.
