Injury report: Phillips makes trip

December, 2, 2012
Safety Kenny Phillips made the trip to Maryland for the game against the Washington Redskins.

Phillips was listed as doubtful on Saturday after aggravating a MCL injury that had kept him out of six games. A source said he looked a bit tentative while running in the past couple of practices. He might test his knee before the game on Monday night, but the fact that he made the trip is a positive sign.

Linebacker Jacquian Williams, who was also listed as doubtful on Saturday, was downgraded to out with a knee injury and will miss his sixth straight game. He told reporters last week that he did not expect to play on Monday night.

Williams and tight end Travis Beckum (knee) are the only Giants who are out for the game and did not make the trip.

Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is listed as questionable with a back issue, although head coach Tom Coughlin expects Pierre-Paul to play, barring a setback. Tackle David Diehl (shoulder) and wide receiver Domenik Hixon (ankle) are also listed as questionable but made the trip to Maryland.
