The latest from TIMEX:
CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring), C David Baas (hip/shoulder) and DT Chris Canty (knee) did not practice today.
Tom Coughlin did not seem optimistic about Prince, saying he suffered a setback against the Ravens.
“Evidently he did (hurt himself) in the game,” said Coughlin. “Surprising to me too because he practiced all week and he only played about four plays.”
RB Ahmad Bradshaw (knee/foot), CB Jayron Hosley (quadriceps), WR Hakeem Nicks (knee), S Kenny Phillips (knee), G Chris Snee (hip), DE Justin Tuck (shoulder) were limited.
Coughlin was not sure how Nicks would come through the week or how much he will play this Sunday against the Eagles (“he did a little bit of something, but not much, today”).
The coach clarified an earlier misstatement that he might have some players sit this game out:
“No, no. I never said to sit this one out. You did, maybe. We do have some guys who are nicked up, but we have probably the majority of them doing a little bit of something. It’s just a question of how far along we go in the next two days.”
Canty spoke about possibly missing Sunday’s game due to injury, something he hopes to avoid:
“It’s tough….I don’t want to let my guys down, especially with the importance of this football game for us still having an opportunity to be in the postseason albeit a lot of circumstances have to fall in the right place, but there’s still an opportunity. I’m fighting hard and I’m in here getting treatment just to make sure that I give myself the absolute best chance to be out there on that field on Sunday.”
Meanwhile two of Philadelphia’s rookie defenders look to be doubtful for the season finale against the Giants.
From Rueben Frank of CSNPhilly:
Rookie Mychal Kendricks said Thursday he’s only in stage two of the Eagles’ five-stage concussion recovery program, which essentially guarantees that he’ll be unable to play in the season finale against the Giants Sunday.
The Eagles haven’t ruled out Kendricks or Fletcher Cox, who also suffered a concussion this past Sunday in the loss to the Redskins, but neither has been practicing, and it doesn’t appear either will be able to play.
