New York Giants' safety Kenny Phillips thought he could play three weeks ago against the Pittsburgh Steelers. That diud not happen. He did not play the following week against the Cincinnati Bengals, either.
This week Phillips, out since Week 4 with a knee injury, believe he finally will really take the field against the Green Bay Packers. Phillips is listed as questionable on the official injury report.
"I’m playing. I’ve practiced everyday this week. It felt pretty good; I didn’t have any setbacks, so I look forward to playing Sunday," Phillips said Friday. "I’m way more confident than I was when we played Pittsburgh just because I was going through those practices back then two weeks ago and I was still kind of sore, (but) this week, I’m not having that problem. I’m running around, I’m participating fully in practice, not taking any plays off. I feel pretty good. I like my chances."
Here is the complete report for the Giants:
WR Domenik Hixon (ankle)
LB Jacquian Williams (knee)
S Kenny Phillips (knee)
