The Giants released their injury report after Thursday's practice. The following players were listed...

Limited Participation in Practice (Less than 100 percent of a player's normal repetitions)
- WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hip)
- S Nat Berhe (concussion)
- LS Zak DeOssie (ankle)
- QB Ryan Nassib (elbow)
- OT Marshall Newhouse (calf)
- RB Bobby Rainey (calf)
- DE Kerry Wynn (concussion)
On Wednesday, all 53 players on the Giants' roster were participating in at least part of practice, but they probably knew it couldn't last. Before that practice ended, rookie safety Darian Thompson suffered a setback in his foot that may prematurely end his year.
Thompson, with his left foot back in a walking boot on Thursday, told reporters he felt "very uncomfortable" and was in a lot of pain after aggravating the injury on Wednesday, so the Giants shut him down and declared him out for this Sunday against the Eagles. On Tuesday he will head back to Charlotte to again see noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, whom he first saw on Sept. 26. At that point, Thompson was diagnosed with only a sprained foot.
Now there is fear that he could need season-ending surgery instead.
"I don't know exactly what happened to it," Thompson said. "That's what I'm waiting to find out."
Meanwhile, safety Nat Berhe still hasn't been cleared for contact in practice, which means he remains in concussion protocol. The Giants are hopeful that he'll be cleared by Saturday, but it's starting to look very unlikely he'll play in the Eagles game.
Also, the Giants added DE Kerry Wynn to the injury report with a concussion on Thursday. The Giants didn't say anything about it, but since he was on the field at the start of practice it appears he either suffered the concussion during practice, or at least reported symptoms after practice started. Either way, it's hard to imagine he'll clear concussion protocol by Sunday.
As for all the others, it's good news that they were all at least limited, though the Giants would surely like to see Odell Beckham (hip) get through all of Saturday's practice to make sure he's really "85-90" percent - as he said - on Sunday.
