On Wednesday, the news on New York Giants safety Landon Collins’ shoulder wasn’t good. Head coach Pat Shurmur updated everyone on that injury — and others — in his weekly presser.
“Lorenzo Carter, he didn’t play in the game; Tae Davis probably won’t participate today, and then we’re all aware of Landon Collins’ situation. He’s got a shoulder injury that most likely will require surgery. That hasn’t one hundred percent been finalized, so he’s going through that process. He’s been trying to get that evaluated for the last couple of days,” Shurmur said.
Carter had a hip ailment that kept him out of the Chicago Bears game and Davis injured an ankle on special teams during the game. Collins appears to be headed to injured reserve, especially if he undergoes surgery, which would end his season.
“Evan Engram will be out there in a limited role, B.J. Goodson, Sterling Shepard. You knew about Evan and you knew about B.J., and I think Sterling had ribs from the game. Those are the guys that will be out, or out there, and I can answer any further questions if you have some,” Shurmur said. “Otherwise, getting ready to play the Redskins, second time around, last time was a close game, we just didn’t make enough plays to win and so we’ve got to get that fixed and play against a really good opponent.”
Engram has missed two games with a hamstring injury, while Goodson has been sidelined with a neck problem. Sterling Shepard bruised ribs on an incompletion but returned to the game.
When asked about Olivier Vernon, Shurmur assured the media that OV was okay.
“No, he’s not on (the list). He’ll be out at practice today,” Shurmur said.
In regards to who will replace Collins in the lineup, Shurmur intimated that the solution would come from within, most likely Sean Chandler, the rookie undrafted rookie from Temple.
“We’re going to do it with the guys that have been playing. (Sean) Chandler will be in there, we still have the guys that have been playing, and we’ll just try to work the next man up,” he said.
