Brandon Jacobs Injury: Giants RB Sprains MCL, According To Report

Giants' running back Brandon Jacobs has a sprained medial lateral ligament, according to ESPN's all-knowing reporter Adam Schefter. Jacobs sat out his third straight practice on Friday and it's looking likely he won't play this Sunday against the Seahawks. He's officially listed as doubtful, per the Giants' twitter feed.

Jacobs sustained the knee injury in last Sunday's game against the Cardinals, but could not pinpoint when it occurred. Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, per ESPN, noted Friday after Jacobs missed another practice, "I thought he would [make more progress], but that hasn't been the case. I don't know if it's a setback, but there is some swelling that has not subsided."

Asked about his chances of suiting up on Sunday, Jacobs replied, "I don't really know what they're thinking as far as that. You gotta speak to Coach Coughlin about that. ... It doesn't really matter what I'm thinking. It doesn't feel too bad. I'm waiting to be unleashed. That's it."

If Jacobs is a no-go, it will fall to Ahmad Bradshaw to carry the rock versus Seattle. Danny Ware is the likely backup.
