Brandon Jacobs RB NYG 13 Days
Brandon Jacobs (knee) missed Giants practice on Friday.
Per the NY Daily News' Mitchell Abramson, Jacobs' absence was a "bad omen" for his chances of playing Sunday. If Jacobs is inactive, the Giants would likely activate Peyton Hillis to be Andre Brown's change-of-pace back.

Brandon Jacobs rushed nine times for 75 yards in the Giants' Week 12 loss to Dallas.
Jacobs ran through some of the biggest holes you'll ever see against a Cowboys defense missing ILB Sean Lee, but failed to finish the run down near the goal line on his long gain, a 37-yarder. Jacobs hasn't suddenly come back to life. He's a breather back and sometimes-goal-line vulture who's comfortably behind Andre Brown on the depth chart. The Giants face the Redskins next.

Brandon Jacobs (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 12.
Jacobs was also listed as questionable for Week 11 against Green Bay. He went on to play and vulture a goal-line touchdown from Andre Brown. We suspect Jacobs will be active again this week. He just isn't a fantasy option.

Brandon Jacobs (knee, hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Packers.
Jacobs returned to practice Thursday after being sidelined since Week 6. He won't be anything more than the No. 3 back upon his return, anyway. Andre Brown is going to carry as much of the load as he possibly can down the stretch.
