Starting safety Kenny Phillips did not practice today for the New York Giants, and the team revealed he is suffering from a sprained MCL. The new injury is to the same knee he had micro-fracture surgery on a year ago.
“It’s not a surgical issue, but he just has difficulty coming back from it,” coach Tom Coughlin said.
The Giants had to know that Phillips’ status would be a week-to-week thing this season. Still, a new injury to an already troublesome knee is not a good thing.
