The news surrounding the New York Giants' backfield continues to swirl, as running back Da'Rel Scott left Wednesday's practice with a knee injury, the severity of which has yet to be determined.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News broke news of this discouraging development, which adds to the current turbulence in the Giants' backfield:

The injury to Da'Rel Scott was to his knee, by the way. Stay tuned for more. He went for tests, so the seriousness is unknown. #NYG

Those tests later indicated no serious structural damage was sustained and there is still a chance Scott plays Sunday against the Denver Broncos.
