Giants’ Azeez Ojulari, Jason Pinnock considered ‘day-to-day’

The New York Giants saw linebacker Azeez Ojulari and defensive back Jason Pinnock go down in a Wild Card victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Ojulari took a stiff knee to his thigh and was unable to stay in the game. He went for additional tests on Monday and showed no additional damage.

“It’s just so terrible,” Ojulari told the New York Post. “I can’t ever finish the game. I’m so frustrated. It’s just so tough. I’m happy we won, though. Gives me another opportunity.”

Pinnock, meanwhile, caught the heel of a Vikings player in the abdomen. He was in obvious pain on the field and was eventually carted off and brought to a local Minneapolis hospital. He was back in the locker room by the end of the game.

Pinnock was able to fly home with the Giants and is apparently doing much better. Both he and Ojulari are considered “day-to-day.”

“We’ll go day to day with all those guys,” head coach Brian Daboll told reporters on Monday. “We’re in good shape after a tough game. I think nothing out of the ordinary.”

With the Philadelphia Eagles on tap, the Giants could certainly use both Ojulari and Pinnock on Saturday. However, the short week leaves them a slightly tougher road back to the field.

The Giants will return to practice on Tuesday afternoon and all eyes will be on their level of participation.
