EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who has missed the last two New York Giants games due to his shoulder injury, did not practice with the team Wednesday as his status for the final three games of the season remains in doubt.
"It’s as always," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said when asked what the plan was for Pierre-Paul. "What are the medical people telling me? How good does he feel? Where is his confidence level? Physically, strength, how much strength is there? Can he defend himself? Can he do the things that he has to do in order to play? Once those questions get answered, maybe I can help you a little bit better, but right now, even though he’s very optimistic right now, I look at the sheet and he’s not going today."
Defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins also missed practice Wednesday with shin and quadriceps injuries. Safety Cooper Taylor sat out with the hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday's loss in San Diego. Cornerback Terrell Thomas got his weekly Wednesday off to rest his surgically repaired knee. And cornerback Corey Webster was listed as a limited participant as he continues to deal with an ankle injury.
Cornerback Prince Amukamara, oddly, was listed on the pre-practice injury report due to an illness, but he did in fact practice with the team and was not listed on the injury report the Giants issued after practice. So he seems good to go.
