It took Brandon Myers quite some time to adjust to the New York Giants offense, but after two straight solid games, he appeared to finally be coming around. For that reason, and given how the season has gone for Big Blue, it seems only fitting that he'd suddenly come down with a groin injury.
As the Giants took the practice field on Thursday, Myers was noticeably absent. Instead of joining his teammates for drills, he instead rode the stationary bike on the side.
"It's just a little sore — nothing major," Myers said.
Meanwhile, in addition to Myers, both defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) and running back Brandon Jacobs (knee) also missed practice and appear unlikely to play on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers.
The good news for Big Blue is that cornerbacks Trumaine McBride (groin) and Corey Webster (ankle) both practiced, along with fellow cornerback Terrell Thomas (knee), who returned after his routine day off.
