Giants coach Brian Daboll said before Thursday’s practice that his team’s injury report would be identical to Wednesday’s.
Which means it appears outside linebackers Kayvon Thibodeaux (sprained MCL) and Azeez Ojulari (calf) could be sidelined for a second straight game, though Thibodeaux did get some team periods work in Wednesday’s practice.

Here’s how the Giants’ Wednesday injury report looked:
Did not practice: CB Nick McCloud (hamstring), CB Aaron Robinson (appendicitis), WR Wan’Dale Robinson (knee)
Limited participant: C Jon Feliciano (lower leg), OLB Azeez Ojulari (calf), S Jason Pinnock (shoulder), OLB Kayvon Thibodeaux (knee)
Full participant: S Dane Belton (collarbone)
Daboll on Wednesday already ruled out Aaron Robinson, who had his appendix removed. And to no surprise, it looks like Wan’Dale Robinson also won’t play in Week 2, at home against the Panthers on Sunday, after getting hurt in last week’s win at the Titans.
Ojulari and Thibodeaux missed that game. As for Feliciano, he said Wednesday he’d be good to go for Sunday’s home opener. But we’ll see. The Giants’ offense obviously really needs him.
And Daboll on Wednesday said Belton would make his Giants debut against the Panthers, after missing Week 1.
Daboll on Thursday said it’s still unclear if Aaron Robinson will be ready for the Giants’ Week 3 home game against the Cowboys — a Monday night showdown (which means one day of extra rest for injured players).

Daboll on Thursday did not officially rule out anyone else for Sunday’s game against Carolina, but it’s clear Wan’Dale Robinson won’t play — and it looks like Ojulari and Thibodeaux might not either.
