On the line, Chris Canty was placed on PUP so he's out until Week 7. Marvin Austin's back and the blood clot in Shaun Rogers' leg is still being monitored. Both could be headed to IR. Yesterday, their top four DEs (Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora, Jason Pierre-Paul and Adrian Tracy) missed practice with various ailments.
Michael Boley, arguably the team's best LB, has practiced sparingly this summer due to a severe hamstring strain. He is not expected to be ready for the season opener. Mathias Kiwanuka, who plays across the field from Boley, is dealing with a groin issue. He also sat out practice yesterday.
The secondary is under siege again. CB Terrell Thomas (knee) was expected to return to form for 2012 after missing all of last season. He will be evaluated by team physicians tomorrow. CB Prince Amukamara sustained a high ankle sprain in last Saturday's preseason game vs the Bears and could miss the first two games. Safety Tyler Sash's ankle locked up and he was placed in a boot. Although Sash will be unavailable for the first quarter of the season due to suspension, the team still needs him for tomorrow night.
