A Giant Infirmary [J. Mark English]

Oh man, talk about a game of attrition for the New York Giants. The Jints suffered so many injuries in the game last night against the Dallas Cowboys that their trainers were nearly performing triage on the field. This is the latest from the Giants website:

Here are the results of this afternoon's MRIs on quarterback Eli Manning, defensive end Osi Umenyiora and running back Brandon Jacobs. Manning has a contusion to the right A-C joint. His status is day to day for this week's game against Green Bay. Umenyiora has an irritation to the lateral meniscus of his left knee. His status is also day to day and he will be re-evaluated later in the week. Jacobs sprained the MCL of his right knee. He will be evaluated on a week to week basis. The results of the MRI on cornerback Kevin Dockery's ankle were not available as of 5 p.m. today.
