New York has two giant injuries to wide receiver Plaxico Burress and running back Brandon Jacobs as it readies for Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.
Neither player, Burress nor Jacobs, practiced Wednesday. Both players are expected to practice Thursday, which would put them on a path to play vs. Washington.
Burress underwent an MRI exam on his hamstring earlier this week and Giants coach Tom Coughlin said it did not reveal anything more than a strain. But Coughlin does not know how to expedite the healing other than to rest it.
“Well they will do everything they can medically to help him,” Coughlin said. “He is very resilient, a very tough guy. He works his way through those kinds of things. So we are just going to have to wait and see. He will rehab as he has all along. He is constantly working on that. So hopefully that can be something that is overcome in a short amount of time. But let’s face it, it is a hamstring.”
