The Giants are hoping Jake Ballard and Mario Manning will mend in time for Sunday night’s first-place NFC East showdown with the Cowboys.
Ballard suffered a partially torn posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee against the Redskins and last week still had not been able to run. He believes he will only miss one game, but that might be wishful thinking.
Manningham has been dealing with a swollen and sore knee for the entire second half of the season. He is hoping to avoid surgery following the season and is optimistic he will be able to make it back for the Cowboys.
