Giants' Olivier Vernon: Still absent from practice

Vernon (ankle) won't practice Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Vernon suffered a high-ankle sprain in Thursday's preseason finale against the Patriots. Head coach Pat Shurmur had seemingly anticipated that Vernon would practice Wednesday, though the 27-year-old's injury is still enough of an issue to warrant caution. Shurmur called Vernon a "fast healer," but it remains to be seen whether the outside linebacker will suit up against Jacksonville on Sunday.
