EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New York Giants starting left tackle Andrew Thomas practiced on a limited basis for the second straight day and was listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals in Arizona.
Thomas sustained a hamstring injury in Sunday night's season-opening 40-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He played the majority of snaps but struggled against a Dallas defense that sacked Daniel Jones seven times.
Thomas, who signed a five–year, $117.5 million contract extension in July, did not practice on Wednesday and he was limited on Thursday and Friday.
“So today, he said he feels a little bit better,” coach Brian Daboll said before practice. “We’ll do a little bit more with him today. And then again, I think it’s really unfair to give you an answer right now, because they’ve got to go out there and move around and do things.”
If Thomas cannot play, either second-year lineman Josh Ezeudu or veteran Matt Peart probably will start at left tackle. Peart hurt an elbow against Dallas but he practiced fully on Friday.
The offensive line played poorly in the loss to Dallas and Daboll has refused to say whether there will be other changes.
Linebacker Azeez Ojulari (hamstring) and receiver Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) also were limited in practice but they are doubtful for the game.
