49ers-Giants injury report: Several key defensive players sidelined for Giants

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants are each dealing with some potentially notable absences. We break down the Thursday practice participation reports.

The San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants completed their second practice sessions of Week 5, and we have practice participation reports for both teams. There are no shocking revelations, but some important absences for both teams.

We discussed Joe Staley's absence earlier today, as well as Ahmad Brooks's expected absence this weekend. Quinton Patton and Alex Boone both returned to practice after sitting out on Wednesday. Boone had someone roll up his ankle last Sunday, while Patton is going through the concussion protocol. We likely will not know Patton's game status until Saturday at the earliest.

The Giants are dealing with several notable injuries on the defensive side of the ball. Defensive end Robert Ayers, linebacker Devon Kennard and defensive end George Selvie. I spoke with Ed Valentine from Big Blue View, and he is not pleased as Ayers is their best pass rusher, and Kennard is their best linebacker. Kennard's backup is Jonathan Casillas, and he was a new addition to the injury report this week.
