The New York Giants medical staff has certainly gotten their money's worth this year.
The Giants have suffered so many injuries this year that it's almost comical—almost.
Although there are numerous injuries that have devastated the defense, there have been numerous big injuries on offense as well. These injuries could have drastically damaged the Giants this season, but Eli Manning has prevented that from happening.
The injuries on the offensive side of the ball this year include:
RB Brandon Jacobs- Knee (Missed Weeks 5 & 6)
RB Ahmad Bradshaw- Broken bone in his foot (Missed Week 9 and questionable for the Week 10 match up against the San Francisco 49ers)
WR Hakeem Nicks- Hamstring (Missed Week 9 and questionable for Week 10)
C David Baas- Neck (Missed Week 5) & Hamstring (Missed Week 9)
WR Ramses Barden- Anke (Missed First 9 Weeks)
Quiet an impressive list huh?
Although the Giants fighting for victories and overcoming injuries has been a story all year, it was especially true against the Patriots in Week 9. The Patriots already went into the game nine point favorites and with the injuries to Ahmad Bradshaw and Hakeem Nicks, it could have been much worse.
Despite that Eli Manning came through. Although he did struggle at times he delivered with the weapons that he had. And that sums up what Eli Manning has done so far this season which is make the best with what he has had.
