The New York Giants announced their final injury report on Friday, and at the very top of the list were tight end Travis Beckum (knee) and safety Tyler Sash (hamstring). Both players are listed as out on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
For Beckum, this will be the second consecutive game he's missed with what the team refers to as a "sore knee" and not a setback. For Sash, the issue dates back to the first quarter of a 17-16 loss to the Washington Redskins when he hurt hamstring covering a kickoff.
Meanwhile, safety Kenny Phillips (knee) is listed as doubtful for the second consecutive week. And although he suited up and played against Washington, that gives no indication into his potential availability this weekend. Head coach Tom Coughlin didn't sound very optimistic when he was asked about it.
"We’ll see. He hasn’t been able to do a whole lot. Let’s put it that way," Coughlin said.
After initially being removed from the injury report, wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee) once again found himself added to it on Thursday after missing practice. He was limited on Friday and Coughlin, again, gave no real indication into his potential availability on Sunday, simply saying he "hopes" Nicks can play. He's currently listed as questionable.
Finally, center David Baas (shoulder), linebackers Chase Blackburn (ankle), Jacquian Williams (knee) and Michael Boley (shoulder), running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), wide receiver Domenik Hixon (ankle) and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (back) are all listed as probable.
