Brandon Jacobs doubtful, Peyton Hillis to see work
Monday, October 21, 2013, 1:09pm
New York's running game is in the hands of veteran Peyton Hillis, who signed with the Giants five days ago, and rookie Michael Cox, who was the second-to-last pick in this year's draft and has not yet had a carry.
Brandon Jacobs missed practice last Monday with the hamstring injury, but the team said it was just being cautious and he was back on the practice field Thursday.
Jacobs had a setback on Saturday, but Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Thursday that Hillis already knows the offense due to his time earlier this year in Tampa Bay with offensive coordinator and former Giants assistant Mike Sullivan. The story points out it's also is possible fullback John Conner could get a carry or two, though his role is more likely to be as a blocking back and possibly in pass protection. There's a better chance the Giants turn to a pass-heavy attack, however.
