Giants running back Rashad Jennings’ status against the Redskins appeared uncertain as he walked across the locker room Tuesday with a splint on his left thumb and a heavily wrapped hand. But Jennings said he plans to practice Wednesday and doesn’t expect to miss any time.
“I plan on practicing, going out there and running, going through the normal stuff,” Jennings said Tuesday. “We’ll tape it how I need to and keep playing ball.
“It’s just something you’ve got to deal with, the cost of playing football. I don’t look at it as slowing me down at all. Just part of the game, that’s really it.”
Jennings, who hurt his thumb in Sunday’s win over the Saints, said X-rays were negative and it primarily is a pain-management issue. He doesn’t believe his play will be affected by the injury, even if he has to wear a wrap or cast, the story said.
