At this point of the summer, the Giants are usually dealing with preparations for the upcoming training camp. The players are in, as Andrew Brandt of SI's MMQB puts it, the "submarine" mode -- the six weeks between minicamp and training camp. Everyone is supposed to run silent and run deep during that period and surface unscathed in late July.

Injuries are not an excuse for losing, but they certainly are a reason. The Giants have been slammed with injuries the past several seasons, especially the last two, and have not played in a postseason game since Super Bowl XLVI.

In 2014, the Giants placed over two dozen players on injured reserve including captains Victor Cruz and Jon Beason, star CB Prince Amukamara and prized UFA signees Geoff Schwartz, Walter Thurmond and Robert Ayers.

For the second consecutive season, the New York Football Giants led the NFL in a category that make most coaches and GMs cringe: Football Outsiders' Adjusted Games Lost.

The latest exiling of five players to the season-ending injured reserve list has left the Giants short at several positions.

On offense, they will start their opening day lineup in Tennessee this Sunday: LT Will Beatty, LG Weston Richburg, C JD Walton, RG John Jerry and RT Justin Pugh. They finally have some numbers behind that group.

Eric Herman has been promoted from the practice squad, joining James Brewer, Brandon Mosely and Dallas Reynolds in the second unit. Not the greatest of options, but at least three of the four are healthy. Brewer is still being monitored for concussion-like symptoms. He is also the only spare tackle on the roster.

Like many of his Giants teammates, punter Steve Weatherford has had a rough year. He had his left ankle wrenched in the season opener in Detroit and he's been grinning and bearing it ever since.

After a slow start due to the injury, Weatherford has rebounded to raise his average to 45.2 YPA.

Yesterday, Weatherford finally caved. He sat out practice with a back ailment, which was apparently sustained over the past few days.

The Giants have a slew of nagging injuries as they prepare for their game vs the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday. Defensive captain LB Jon Beason (foot) is experiencing soreness in the foot that kept him out of most of the Giants' offseason program and unexpectedly sat out practice on Thursday.

"They think he?ll play," said head coach Tom Coughlin. "I think if he feels a little bit better out here on the grass, he?s fine."

Coughlin confirmed Beason's foot is 'sore' and agreed when it was suggested that playing on artificial turf could be compounding the issue.

The Giants' 35-24 win over the Jets at MetLife Stadium Friday night came at a price. Four more players were injured, most notably LG Geoff Scwhartz, who was carted off with a dislocated toe.

?It?s pretty serious,? Tom Coughlin said after the game. ?Hard to play with a toe that?s not functioning.?

Rookie Weston Richburg replaced Schwartz at LG. He may be there for awhile as Schwartz will likely be out for a few weeks. The starting line, which struggled to protect QB Eli Manning vs the Jets, will likely be: Will Beatty at LT, Justin Pugh at RT, Richburg at LG, Brandon Mosley at RG and JD Walton at center.

The Giants' 2013 season was one of insult and injury. They've gotten over the insults, given themselves a facelift and now are working their way back from the injuries. Yesterday, many of those players waxed optimistic about their health for the 2014 season.

"No doubt, no doubt. I?m going to go out there and play the game like I was 21 again. This whole offseason I?ve just been training and thinking that I want to get back on the football field. It?s coming." - DE Jason Pierre-Paul on if he'll be the player he was before back and shoulder ailments slowed him down.

"I?m 100 percent, ready to go. My knee feels great. I?m just excited to be back in this building, back smelling this grass again and being around you beautiful people so I?m excited." - WR Victor Cruz, recovering from knee surgery.

?Our locker room couldn?t have been better as far as us guys staying together. We never started pointed fingers, we never started blaming one guy or this guy or that guy, we knew we needed to play better as a team and we knew our energy wasn?t there as a team. So we had to figure that out and slowly but surely we?re trying to do that.?

The Giants have five players on the Phyically Unable to Perform - or PUP - list this camp. We know JPP (back) is in the midst of rehab as are Henry Hynoski (knee) and Markus Kuhn (also a knee). Terrell Thomas (knee) was cleared by doctors, but the team felt it best to shelve him at this time.

"He?s restricted in what he can do. We?re all frustrated about it," Tom Coughlin said yesterday. "He is himself, number one. The sooner he can get out there, the better off we?ll all be. And he came in fully feeling like he could start right out in practice and just wasn?t able to do that right away. We?ll be patient, but know full well that we?re all excited the moment he gets a chance to come out and practice and we get a sense of where he is, how he?s going to be and that type of thing."

The one player that is not long for the list is guard Chris Snee, who told reporters he could begin practicing as early as next week:

Tonight at 7 p.m., the Nets return home after their season-long eight-game road trip to take on the Chicago Bulls.

Brooklyn is currently in the No. 4 spot in the Eastern Conference with the Bulls occupying the No. 6 seed.

Chicago has struggled recently with injuries, which has made it difficult for the team to catch the Nets.

For the last few years, the Islanders have had the most, or among the most, man games lost due to injury in the league. Last season, the Isles were third in the league through 57 games. ?In 2010-11, they rang up a ridiculous 512 man games lost through 74 games.

Each year, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail compiles these numbers which aren't released publicly. As Mirtle notes, an injury to Sidney Crosby counts as much as an injury to a fourth liner but these numbers still provide a pretty good picture as to which teams are falling victim to injuries.?

This year, it's been a different story for the Islanders. The majority of their most important players haven't been injured. In fact, John Tavares, Matt Moulson, Brad Boyes, Frans Nielsen, Mark Streit, Kyle Okposo, Travis Hamonic, Andrew MacDonald and Matt Martin have played in all 33 games thus far (and another three have played in 30).

Arthur Staple tweets that Travis Hamonic "left the MTS Centre last night in a boot," due to a sprained ankle. Hamonic left the game late in the third yesterday in Winnipeg. His last shift in Sunday's game ended with 2:49 to go in the third period and he was the only Islander defender to not take a shift in overtime. There is no timetable for his return.

NEW YORK ? The Nets went back to the future by signing Damion Jones to a 10-day contract. After being selected in the first round of the 2010 NBA draft, James?selected by the Atlanta Hawks before being traded to the Nets?spent two years with the club before his third year rookie option was declined.

James began this NBA season as a member of the NBDL's Bakersfield Jam. He averaged 15.5 points and 7.3 rebounds in 28.9 minutes per game. Having seemingly proven himself on the NBA's smaller stage, the Nets opted to sign James to a 10-day contract and give him the 15th and final roster spot that was opened up when the club waived Josh Childress back on Dec. 29.

With the NHL and NHLPA meeting late into the night yesterday on New Year's, there's some hope that a deal could get done and a season started by the end of January. But, like any good hockey fan, you shouldn't get those hopes up too much. They've disappointed us all quite a bit already. Anyway, if in fact we do have hockey soon, the Islanders are going to be at a bit of a disadvantage with a number of injured players. Not on this list are David Ullstrom and Casey Cizikas who have both missed time this year to injury but are currently playing. Here's what we've been able to compile:

Michael Grabner: "Should be" ready by January 15th after a lower-body injury
