Report: Rashad Jennings doesn't travel with Giants

Print

The Giants will lean on rookie Andre Williams for at least one more week in New York's backfield.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reported Saturday that Rashad Jennings is not traveling with the team to Seattle because of the knee injury that has shelved the veteran running back since Week 6. Officially listed as doubtful, Jennings' absence comes as no great suprise.

Also for Big Blue, defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins, cornerback Zack Bowman and pass rusher Mathias Kiwanuka are all questionable for Sunday's showdown with the Seahawks.

After showing tantalizing promise in the preseason, Williams has struggled of late in New York's backfield. The rookie hasn't topped four yards per carry in a game since Week 4 and spit out just 22 yards off 12 attempts in Monday night's loss to the Colts. The Giants saw better production from second-year runner Michael Cox and the unkillable Peyton Hillis.

After throwing an outrageous 52 passes in the Indy defeat, Eli Manning is a candidate to take to the skies again if New York's running game remains stuck in neutral against Seattle.
