Giants OLB Olivier Vernon was a non-participant at practice yet again on Thursday, as he continues to deal with his high left ankle sprain.
Vernon told the Daily News' Pat Leonard on Wednesday that he "feels better than last week," but has yet to see the practice field. The Giants will have to put an injury designation on the linebacker if he doesn't see the field on Friday.
Head coach Pat Shurmur doesn't know what to expect from Vernon.
"I don't know what's going to happen this weekend so we'll have to see as we go," he told Newsday's Tom Rock.
If Vernon can't play in the Week 1 matchup against the Jaguars, then it will be between rookie OLB Lorenzo Carter and OLB Connor Barwin to take his spot. But Carter was the latest addition to the injury report, as the Giants noted he was limited due to an illness.
Carter didn't seem too worried about his limited time at practice, but it is worth watching if he stays on the injury report for Friday.
Also, ILB Tae Davis was again a non-participant as he deals with a hamstring injury this week.
