Giants taking it easy with Kenny Phillips

Originally, when Giants S Kenny Phillips returned from microfracture surgery on his left knee, coach Tom Coughlin said the team would limit his practice reps on Wednesdays as a precaution.

But this week, after he sat out Friday’s practice (following limited participation Thursday), the Giants said Phillips had sprained his MCL in the same knee that originally required surgery. The team claims this injury has nothing to do with the arthritic issue that kept him out of the final 14 games of last season.

Still, it makes sense to treat the injury with extra caution. That’s why Phillips is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against Houston.

“Conservative. That’s what I’m going to say right now; we’ve been real conservative,” Phillips said in quotes captured by the Star Ledger. “I hope to play, looking forward to playing. I’ve been watching film, doing everything and preparing to play. Looking forward to it.”

As Mike Garafolo writes:

But again, any issue in the same knee is cause for concern. Even Phillips admitted as such on Wednesday, when he said he was being limited as a precaution against re-injuring himself.

Playing with an MCL sprain could force Phillips to put more pressure on other parts of the knee, which would seemingly put him at risk of hurting his kneecap
“It could be in some cases, but in this case it’s
not, as far as I know,” Phillips said. “Talking to the trainers and everyone else, I’m pretty good... in my case, it’s pretty much nothing.”

If Phillips can’t play, look for Brian Jackson to get some snaps there. The only problem with that: aside from a week in college, Jackson has never played safety before.
