Giants' Randle misses practice with sore knee, putting season finale in doubt

The New York Giants at Giants.com are reporting that second-year wide receiver Rueben Randle missed Thursday's practice with a sore knee, putting his participation in Sunday's finale against the Washington Redskins in doubt.

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin spoke to the media at Thursday's press availability about Randle's condition and how it occurred. Coughlin was not committal about when the actual injury occurred.

"Rueben has a little bit of swelling in his knee, so they want to take a look at it. Hopefully it’s not going to be much. Time to time he has some issues," Coughlin said.

The head coach's comments seemed to indicate that Randle has had ongoing knee issues rather than injuring himself in practice on Wednesday, but Coughlin was more specific about when it became noticeable.

"You know what, it was yesterday. In our work yesterday he kind of limped around a little bit, so they took him in and looked at it and it was a little bit swollen this morning," Coughlin stated.

Without leading receiver Victor Cruz for the game against the Redskins, the loss of Randle would severely impact the passing attack. In 15 games this year, Randle has 41 catches for 611 yards and six touchdowns. The second-year man from LSU has not had a TD catch since week 10 against Green Bay, however.
