Injury Update Redskins vs Giants

By 1niksder | September 10th, 2011

The lack of off-season training activities were said to be a reason for teams to worry about Training Camp injuries. I’m not sure if the New York Giants were worried about injuries or not, but they were one of the hardest hit teams by the injury bug this off-season. Cornerbacks Terrell Thomas, Bruce Johnson, Brian Witherspoon, 2011 second-round draft pick defensive tackle Marvin Austin, linebackers Jonathan Goff and Clint Sintim are all out for the year due to injuries. Cornerback Prince Amukamara, the team’s 2011 first-round pick, also remains out indefinitely with a broken foot. Defensive end Osi Umenyiora will be out for at least another week or two as he comes back from arthroscopic knee surgery and now Justin Tuck is concerned about the lingering pain in his neck and sounding uncertain about his status for Sunday’s game. On the other hand the Washington Redskins come out of the pre-season with very few major injuries. Redskins’ rookie defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins suffered a torn right ACL in the third preseason game. Jenkins had the surgery Friday, and has already started rehabilitating his knee. Jenkins said that he has been told to expect a recovery time of four to six months. Strong safety LaRon Landry said he won’t play in Sunday’s opener vs. the New York Giants after suffering a setback with his hamstring. According to media eports he blamed himself rather than the training staff, these reports differ from what Landry wrote on Twitter on Tuesday. Those post were later deleted. Landry is the only injury question make for now that the Redskins have to deal with. Rookie defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins said the surgery to repair his torn right ACL was a success and that no additional damage was found, Jarvis will miss all of the 2011 season.

Tight end Travis Beckum (hamstrings) was limited in practice on Friday and defensive end Justin Tuck took part in practice for the first time in two weeks on Friday, both are listed as questionable for Sunday’s game

Tight end Chris Cooley (knee), return man Brandon Banks (knee), free safety Oshiomogho Atogwe (hamstring), receiver Donte Stallworth (shoulder) and running back Ryan Torain (hand) were limited in practice this week and each are listed as questionable for Sunday’s game
