The Giants may be very short on safeties when they play in Minnesota on Monday night.
They had already lost rookie Darian Thompson to a sprained foot, and now the status of his replacement, Nat Berhe, is uncertain. Berhe complained of headaches and wasn't feeling well when he reported to work on Wednesday. After doctors evaluated him he was diagnosed with a concussion and did not practice on Thursday.
If Berhe doesn't recover and make it through the NFL's concussion protocol in time, the Giants will only have Landon Collins and rookie Andrew Adams as safeties on their roster. Veteran cornerback Leon Hall could also be moved back there if necessary. But moving Hall could create issues too, since two corners -- Eli Apple (hamstring) and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (groin) -- are also on the injury report, and both were only working on the side with trainers on Thursday.
The Giants don't currently have any safeties on their practice squad, either.
As for the rest of the Giants' injury report, RT Marshall Newhouse (calf) was not out at practice on Thursday, making it likely that Bobby Hart will again start in his place on Monday night. Also on the injury report are DE Olivier Vernon (wrist) and DT Robert Thomas (illness).
