It has been announced by the New York Giants that Jason Pierre-Paul and Brandon Jacobs will not play in Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.
Via Sports Illustrated,
Pierre-Paul has a shoulder injury and did not practice all week. Jacobs, who had nine rushes for 75 yards in the 24-21 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, will be sidelined with a knee injury.
Pierre-Paul has gone through an injury-plagued season and has recorded 27 tackles, two sacks and one interception this year.
The playoff picture for the Giants is extremely bleak, albeit not impossible entirely.
The Giants (4-7) will most likely need to win out and need some help from other teams to make the NFC playoffs. The team lost their first six games this season and had won four straight before losing to the Cowboys.
By no means am I saying that the Giants have an actual chance of making the playoffs with how they’ve been playing, I’m just saying that they aren’t mathematically eliminated just yet. The only legitimate chance they have of making the postseason is if they are somehow able to come out n top of the NFC East.
