07:26 AM ET 12.24 | And then there was rookie Michael Cox. David Wilson, Brandon Jacobs, Da'Rel Scott, Andre Brown and Peyton Hillis all have started games at running back for the New York Giants this year. The first two are on injured reserve, the third has been released and the other two are being treated for concussions. It's entirely possible that none of them will be available for the season finale Sunday against the Redskins at MetLife Stadium. Which would leave the Giants' running game in the hands of [Cox], who was the next-to-last pick in this year's draft and has seen significant work as a kick returner but has carried the ball only 22 times (for 43 yards) on offense. The Giants have a running back named Kendall Gaskins on their practice squad and could conceivably elevate him to give themselves an extra body.

I've been waiting 40 years to play in the NFL, maybe now is my chance.

What about John Conner?

The game means nothing. If you run out of RBs, just pass and punt.

Uh, maybe they should start their sixth string QB as well

Do the have enough butter to coat on another RBs' hands?

Bring back Jared Lorenzen and run QB sneaks and it would average as much yards a carry as they do now anyways.

There's always a more disfunctional team somewhere.....

He's damn sure got the size...

Tiki Barber is ready to suit up, step on the field, and resume trashing the team and stabbing everyone in the back.

They should come up with some kind of incentive for games like this.

Atlanta was seriously "playing for pride" last night. I'm not sure this Giants-Redskins game will have any of that. Who wants to get hurt playing in a meaningless game?

Now I don't care who you are, that's funny right there.

Or maybe the Politically Correct pressure will get to them, and this will be the final game ever for the "Washington Redskins."

Man, that would seriously suck.

I heard the American Association of Really Big People is planning on protesting New York's nickname as well.....

Between the offensive line and running back. Giants has been decimated this season.
