Raiders vs Giants Thursday injury report: DJ Hayden misses practice with groin injury

Thearon W. Henderson

Wednesday, there were a lot of additions to the injury list for the Raiders along with some good news about who had returned to practice. Thursday there was just one major addition -- D.J. Hayden.

Hayden didn't practice Thursday with a groin injury of unknown severity. He didn't appear on the injured list at all on Wednesday which is rather unusual. Typically these things happen in practice which would have him limited on the day he had the injury. Dennis Allen said Hayden suffered the injury in practice Wednesday but didn't leave early. It is something worth monitoring through the week. If he can't go this week, Philip Adams would likely replace him as the team's nickel corner.

Sebastian Janikowski practiced today after missing Wednesday with a bruised rib. His status was never really in doubt.

For the Giants, it was Victor Cruz who returned to practice. His status was also not considered serious. He had a neck stinger last Sunday and was expected to return. Terrell Thomas also returned to practice.

The Giants did, however, have two players downgraded this week. Shaun Rogers and Trumaine McBride both missed practice
