Giants’ Victor Cruz, Jason Pierre-Paul, Brandon Mosley & Adrien Robinson Out Vs. Redskins

The New York Giants released their final Week 17 injury report on Friday, and as expected wide receiver Victor Cruz (knee), defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder), offensive lineman Brandon Mosley (hand) and tight end Adrien Robinson (knee) have all been ruled out against the Washington Redskins.

The good news for Big Blue is that cornerback Trumaine McBride (groin) and wide receiver Rueben Randle each returned to practice on Friday and are listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

Meanwhile, offensive lineman David Diehl (knee), running backs Andre Brown (concussion) and Peyton Hillis (concussion), defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (shin/quad) and cornerbacks Terrell Thomas (knee) and Jayron Hosley (illness) are all listed as probable.

Safety Cooper Taylor is also out, having previously been placed on Injured Reserve (IR) with a hamstring injury.

With JPP being ruled out on Sunday, it means he will have missed the final five games of the season, finishing with only two sacks — his lowest career total to date.

Due to their overwhelming amount of injuries this season — which have been well documented here on Giants 101 — the Giants will go into Sunday's game having used 63 different players this season, including 46 different starters. The significance of those numbers? It leaves them only four additional starters shy of setting the NFL's all-time rank.

On the other side of the field, the Redskins listed only linebacker Brian Orakpo (groin) on their injury report. He was limited on Wednesday, did not participate on Thursday and his final status has not yet been revealed.

    Look, I love me some Tuck. I really do…


    Let him go.

    He’s been an excellent soldier and been insanely instrumental in our 2 Super Bowls.


    Let him go.

    Let’s not get caught using our hearts instead of our heads. Tuck has had a very good season, the sort that will net him a decent payday, of the 2-3 year variety. I just don’t think it should be us that gives it to him. Why? Because we need to get younger, cheaper, and better. Good as Tuck has been in the second half of the season, he has essentially been a nonfactor since we last hosted the Lombardi. And let’s not forget that this is the same guy who hohummed and waxed philosophic for all of last year, and who’s been prone to more than his fair share of injuries in the last few seasons.

    In order to rebuild this team quick enough not to squander the last 3-5 years of Eli’s career, we have to make tough decisions. It’s a coldhearted, but we cannot continuously be the team that hangs on that extra year or two.

    I love you, Tuck. And I’m sad to see you go. But we just have to move on…

    Giants’ Antrel Rolle finished third in Pro Bowl fan balloting at strong safety. I see no other NYG in top 10 at their positions.

    There goes Hakeem Nicks, running his mouth and saying all the wrong things again:

    @art_stapleton: Hakeem Nicks said he wants to stay with the Giants, promises $ is not his only factor in FA + emphasizes “stability” of the franchise #NYG

    Whether money is the only factor in the end (which it’s likely to be), he’s saying the right things.

      Like Tuck … if he wants to stay then all he has to do is accept the team’s offer. He has complete control. No one is forcing him to do anything.

      Re: Nicks

      I’m ambivalent. I want an explanation for this year. If he’s injured, fine–yet another injury for the kid. If the contract year thing really messed with his head, which is a theory that was being bandied about early in the season, then okay–no harm no foul I guess. But if that’s not it, and if he’s not injured, and this is just how it’s going to be, goodbye. I love the big play ability, I love the physicality, and I love the way he played ball from the moment he got here until that Tampa game really screwed up his wheels. But there’s something wrong with 2013 Nicks, and before we make any decisions about this kid, we need to figure out what the heck it is!

    If #NYG signed Hakeem Nicks to same deal Victor Cruz signed last season, would fan base be happy or upset? I’m not sure what L/T reax wd be
