Heading into the bye week, Brandon Jacobs has gained 116 yards on 38 carries. He has played in only four of the Giants’ six games, missing the last two with a swollen knee. There is no guarantee that will be ready to go when the team returns on Oct. 30 against the now winless Miami Dolphins.
Jacobs expects to play, but in almost the same breath he adds he will not go unless his knee is 100 percent. The seven-year veteran played on a subpar knee two years ago and struggled, and he has vowed not to make the same mistake again.
“I got most of the swelling down, so now I am just working on flexing and being able to do certain things,” Jacobs said Tuesday after sitting out the team’s final practice before scattering for a five-day vacation. “I am not worried about it. I will be back when I need to be back.”
