Around the Giants World: Updates and Injury Status

 First of all, nothing new:
John Branch, of The New York Times, reports the NY Giants are expecting an answer sometime this week from DL Michael Strahan egarding his status for this season.

But at the same time, you never know with this guy:

Updating ongoing reports, ESPNews reports Giants DE Michael Strahan may end his holdout in the next few days. He may decide to play beyond just the 2007 season as well.

 Droughns Update:

Mike Garafolo, of The Star-Ledger, reports NY Giants RB Reuben Droughns was working out at fullback during practice Monday, Aug. 27. “We’re going to work Reuben, who’s done that before in Denver, (at fullback) and of course, (Michael) Matthews,” head coach Tom Coughlin said. “I’d like to see Reuben (against the Patriots Thursday) at fullback.”

And now, I’ll spit out the ugly list of injuries. These are only key injury status reports:

  • Michael Eisen from Giants.com reports Giants Kicker Jeff Feagles (back) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 27. It is uncertain what his availability will be for the team’s preseason game this Thursday.
  • Eisen also reports Jeremy Shockey (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 27. It is also uncertain what his availability will be for the team’s preseason game this Thursday.
  • Mike Garafolo, of The Star-Ledger, reports Giants WR David Tyree (wrist) will undergo surgery on his wrist Monday, Aug. 27, and is expected to miss four to six weeks.

Ok, too many injuries for me. I’m hoping that these injuries stop coming at such a crazy rate. The Giants need these players. There is always something new with Burress. Now it is his back, while at the same time, he missed last week’s game because of the “flu.” I’m beginning to wonder if they said that just to keep a different injury separate. We’ll find out.

The Giants already have lost several key players, including FB Jim Finn, just to name one, to the IR.

The Giants’ first game is 9/9 at Dallas. It’s the Sunday Night game with Madden and Michaels announcing. Sounds like fun for the first week of play.
