Giants Dis dealing with many injuries

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Giants might have to play without two of their defensive starters Monday against the Redskins — and elusive rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III — New York's Daily News reported Saturday.

Former USF star end Jason Pierre-Paul missed his second straight practice with a sore back and is questionable. Safety Kenny Phillips is doubtful after making it through only two days of limited practice last week because of an sore right knee. Friday, Phillips said he was confident he would play.

Neither the players nor Giants coach Tom Coughlin were made available for comment.

Two other defensive starters, end Justin Tuck (foot) and safety Antrel Rolle (illness), also missed practice Saturday but are listed as probable.

The Giants, however, declared tight end Travis Beckum out. He missed the season's first eight games after tearing his right ACL during the Super Bowl. He returned to play three but felt pain in the knee after last week's game against the Packers.

Harvin out: A day after listing him as doubtful, the Vikings said receiver Percy Harvin will miss his third consecutive game with a sprained left ankle.

Panthers: Starting running back Jonathan Stewart, who had been doubtful with a high left ankle sprain after not practicing last week, did not make the trip to Kansas City.
