The New York Giants can’t seem to catch a break on the injury front. After losing running back David Wilson to a potential season-ending neck injury, they lost Da’Rell Scott two weeks ago in a loss to the Chicago Bears. Scott suffered a hamstring injury that led to his eventual release.
In that same game Brandon Jacobs emerged as a legitimate option, running for 106 yards and a pair of scores on 22 carries, but he too injured his hamstring, which caused him to miss Monday’s win over the Minnesota Vikings, and it looks like it will cause him to miss Sunday’s game vs the Philadelphia Eagles:
Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) remains “doubtful” but he is apparently making the trip with the team. #NYG

The biggest news surrounding Jacobs came on Tuesday, Jacobs tweeted a picture of a fan’s tweet ordering the running back to rush for 50 yards and two touchdowns against the Vikings or “it’s over for you and yo family.”
“Us as football players, we don’t owe y’all nothing,” Jacobs said. “It’s up to you to manage your team the way you want to manage it. The only owners and general managers I owe anything to is Jerry Reese, the Mara and the Tisch family. Everybody else, I don’t concern myself with.”
