Giants running back Brandon Jacbos met with reporters after practice today and declared himself fit and ready for Sunday's NFC Divisional Playoff game.
Jacobs missed three games with knee issues this season, including the Giants' regular-season finale against Minnesota.
Asked the difference between practice today and the last time he was on the field, he said, "I can go out and run full speed and I can make harder cuts. I’m ready to go. I feel real good; I feel real good about our situation and where we are right now. I am just going to wait for the game to begin."
Here is more of the Q&A session with reporters:
Q: Tom Coughlin said that he had to calm you down a little bit today. Are you that excited?
A: All day long he has been saying, “Brandon, the game is on Sunday.” I’m wired. You have to think about it. I didn’t do anything for the past two weeks. I feel like my production has been down when I have played. I want to come out and be able to produce and help my team win. And I want to have everybody fired up.
Q: Do you feel you have to guard against doing too much too soon?
A: No. I know what I have to do – it is the divisional playoffs. It is January, for crying out loud. We are still playing football and all of our games are at home. So you can’t ask for a situation better than that. I want everybody to be wired. I want everybody to be champing at the bit because an hour and a half down the turnpike they are. Those guys are ready to play. They have been playing very, very good football lately. So we are going to have to match their intensity.
Also from Giants camp, Zach DeOsie sat out practice with a back problem and Pro Bowl defensive end Justin Tuck also missed practice with a lower leg injury. He banged knees a few weeks ago and either does not practice or is limited but then ends up playing most of the game.
