Giants Injury Update: Rashad Jenings, Michael Cox

By on 11/11/2014 03:18:00 PM

The New York Giants suffered yet another crushing loss Sunday in Seattle, bringing their losing streak up to four. They are now 3-6 and third in the NFC East. The Giants may have one running back return this week, at the same time losing another.

Late in the fourth quarter, Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane threw himself at Giants fourth-string running back Michael Cox's legs. Cox went down awkwardly and was writhing in pain by the time trainers got to him. According to Nick Powell of, Cox fractured his lower left leg and could miss the rest of the season.

Cox was mainly the Giants' kick returner, but had worked himself into the rotation as coaches hoped to give him more touches to jump start the stagnant running game. Third-string running back Peyton Hillis suffered a concussion in the first half and left the game.

A couple of other backups left the game with injuries as well. Safety Nat Berhe left with an ankle injury and did not return. Tight end Daniel Fells left with a neck injury.

The good news for the Giants is that they should be getting primary running back Rashad Jennings back for this Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. He has missed the last four games with a knee injury. Jennings practiced all last week and is expected to practice this week. When Jennings has started, the Giants have averaged 121 yards on the ground. They only managed 54 yards against Seattle.
