Injuries: Janoris Jenkins (back) game-time decision

The Giants could be without one of their best secondary man Thursday night.

Breakthrough cornerback Janoris Jenkins is questionable to play against the Eagles with a back injury he suffered in last week's win that knocked him out of the game. NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reported Wednesday that Jenkins is a game-time decision to play.

Jenkins has three interceptions on the year and has been a huge addition for the Giants this year after playing four seasons with the Rams. He also has a forced fumble and 17 passes defensed.

Safety Nat Berhe (concussion) was ruled out for Thursday night.

Here are some other injuries we are tracking Wednesday:

  1. Eagles wideout Jordan Matthews (ankle), running back Darren Sproles (concussion) and guard Allen Barbre (hamstring) are all questionable for Thursday against the Giants. Coach Doug Pederson expects all three to play.
  1. Running back Matt Forte (knee/shoulder) did not practice Wednesday, Jets coach Todd Bowles said. Quarterback Bryce Petty(chest), however, was a full participant in practice and will play Saturday.
  1. Packers running back James Starks remains in the concussion protocol, coach Mike McCarthy said. Linebacker Nick Perry (hand) worked with the training staff on some things Tuesday.
  1. Vikings running back Adrian Petersondidn't practice after returning to the team this past weekend for the first time since tearing his meniscus in Week 2. He was on the injury report with a groin injury to go with his knee injury. Receiver Stefon Diggs (hip), safety Harrison Smith (ankle), guard Brandon Fusco (concussion) and receiver Laquon Treadwell (ankle) also didn't practice.
  1. Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston isn't practicing because of swelling in his knee but coach Andy Reid doesn't seem concerned.

The Chiefs activated linebackerJustin March-Lillard off injured reserve on Wednesday, per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. With the 23-year-old defender serving as Kansas City's designated-to-return player, running back Jamaal Charles (knee) is officially done for the year.

  1. Patriots third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett is expected to be activated to the 53-man roster off injured reserve, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source.
  1. Dolphins center Mike Pouncey says he won't need surgery on his injured hip. Pouncey was placed on injured reserve earlier this month.

  1. Texans running back Lamar Miller (ankle) didn't practice in the portion that was open to the media. Miller had an MRI after Sunday's win against the Jaguars, and based on the results, is expected to play Saturday against the Bengals, per Rapoport.
  1. The Bears did not activate cornerback Kyle Fuller (knee) off injured reserve over the three-week window, so he will miss the remainder of the season.
  1. Bengals running back Jeremy Hill (knee) and tight end Tyler Eifert (back) did not practice.
