The Giants have a very short week, but their injury list remains very long.
Five starters, and one of the replacements for the injured starters, were on the list of Giants who did not practice on Monday as the Giants began their abbreviated preparation for their Thanksgiving night game against the Redskins (4-6) in Washington. That includes two starting offensive linemen who may not play, meaning the Giants could have to reshuffle a line that is already in a constant state of flux.
Justin Pugh was already expected to miss the next few weeks, according to multiple team sources. And now G D.J. Fluker is expected to miss the game on Thursday night, too. That probably means G Jon Halapio would be in line for his first career start, though the Giants also could turn to veteran G John Greco whom they just signed last week.
Also on the did not practice list were two defensive linemen - DT Damon Harrison (ankle) and DE Olivier Vernon (ankle) - who played on Sunday in the Giants' win over Kansas City, but left at times with their injuries during the game. Vernon actually left the game with what was described as a shoulder injury. But he's back on the injury report with an ankle issue - something that had bothered him in previous weeks.
Linebacker B.J. Goodson (ankle) and linebacker Calvin Munson (quad) also did not practice for the Giants.
The good injury news was that WR Sterling Shepard returned to practice on a limited basis after missing the game on Sunday due to migraines. Running back Orleans Darkwa was also limited with a hamstring injury. He said he's fine after taking a pretty good beating on Sunday and he expects to play on Thursday night.
Also limited at practice for the Giants: DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee), LB Kelvin Sheppard (groin), and rookie DT Dalvin Tomlinson (ankle).
