Jennings (thumb) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

With the long term in mind, the Giants will hold Jennings out of commission in order to avoid any setback with his left thumb. The backfield will thus be headed by Shane Vereen and (to a lesser extent) Orleans Darkwa, but the absence could afford rookie Paul Perkins with his first career touches.

Jennings (thumb) is not in line to play Sunday against Washington, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The official Week 3 game status of Jennings, who was listed as questionable by the Giants on Friday, will be confirmed as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches, but based on this news, look for Shane Vereen to head the team's rushing attack, with Orleans Darkwa also in the mix.

Jennings (hand) has been downgraded to questionable for Sunday's game against Washington.

EDGE Analysis

A limited practice participant all week, Jennings originally didn't have an injury designation on Friday's injury report. While still likely to play, the Giants are at least leaving open the possibility their starting running back will be held out. At the very least, it seems Jennings' thumb and wrist injuries will impact his ability to catch the ball, perhaps leaving a few more targets for Shane Vereen.

Jennings (hand) is slated to play in Sunday's game against Washington, ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although wrist and thumb injuries limited his practice participation this week, Jennings doesn't have an injury designation on Friday's injury report. His ability to catch the ball may be impacted, but he's not in danger of missing Sunday's game.

Although Jennings' hand injury is getting "better", he said Thursday that it may "linger," Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

EDGE Analysis

For the second day in a row, Jennings practiced in a limited fashion as he tends to his ailing left hand. It's unknown if he'll be able to handle the rock in that particular hand, or if carries and catches will be made solely with his right hand. However, Jennings' status for Sunday's contest against the Redskins likely isn't in question.

Jennings (hand) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

In the aftermath of Sunday's win against the Saints, Jennings' left wrist and thumb were encased in a wrap, but he was still expected to practice this week. Indeed, that has come to pass, with capped reps potentially on the docket through Friday as a precautionary measure. There's little worry about his availability for Sunday's game against the Redskins, but Jennings hasn't been the outright No. 1 running back implied by the Giants before the season, as he's handled 31 carries to Shane Vereen's 20.

Jennings, who banged up his hand during Sunday's win over the Saints, should be out on practice field come Wednesday, ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though Jennings will likely work in a limited capacity Wednesday, this nugget suggests that the running back's hand injury is not a major concern and shouldn't prevent him from seeing his share of work this Sunday against Washington.

Jennings had a disappointing day against the Saints weak defense, managing just 27 yards on 13 carries and two catches for 13 more yards.

EDGE Analysis

In fact, third-down back Shane Vereen, who lost a fumble, saw more carries than him. Jennings was slated to be the team's clear early-down starter, but he's hard to count on going forward after a weak showing in a great matchup.
