With Andre Brown already on short-term Injured Reserve (IR) and David Wilson facing a potential season-ending neck/spine injury, the last thing the New York Giants need is more injuries at the running back position. Alas, that's exactly what they have with Da'Rel Scott likely to miss several weeks due to a hamstring injury suffered in Thursday's loss to the Chicago Bears.
Scott had only recently been re-signed by the Giants following the initial injury to Wilson. Prior to that he had been released in order to make room for offensive lineman Dallas Reynolds, but that also came on the heels of Scott suffering a knee injury in practice.
Although Brandon Jacobs saw the bulk of the work on Thursday night, and had a turn back the clock sort of performance, Scott did carry the ball four times for 17 yards. He also hauled in a pass for four yards.
With Wilson and Scott out, the Giants are left with only Jacobs and rookie running back Michael Cox, who has not yet carried the ball this season.
Expect the team to rekindle their interest in Tim Hightower, who was a hot topic in the offseason, but currently remains a free agent. They may also take another look at Beanie Wells, who worked out for the team earlier this season.
