EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Eleven days after rushing for 106 yards in a loss to the Bears, New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs is inactive for Monday night's game against the Vikings due to a hamstring injury. That means rookie Michael Cox, who was the second-to-last pick in this year's draft and has not had a carry yet this season, will be the starting running back for the Giants on Monday. Newly signed veteran Peyton Hillis and fullback John Conner are the only other two active running backs for the Giants, who have lost David Wilson, Andre Brown and Da'Rel Scott to injury so far this...

After spending his first seven seasons with the Giants, Jacobs signed with the 49ers as a free agent in 2012 but played in just two games.

Allie LaForce and Doug Gottlieb discuss the return to the Giants of their former running back.
Here is what the New York Giants' decision to bring back Brandon Jacobs is and is not: IT IS NOT an indictment of David Wilson. The Giants were looking at veteran running backs last week, remember, before Wilson's tough season-opening performance against Dallas, and may have signed one of them had it not been for a league rule that would have forced them to guarantee a full year's salary. They were very thin at the position. Andre Brown's preseason injury left them with three tailbacks on the roster, all of whom (Wilson included) are very inexperienced.
Manning receives $9 million now Chris Faytok/The Star-LedgerGiants quarterback Eli Manning did a simple restructuring of his contract on Wednesday to lower his salary-cap number by $6.75 million. The Giants were reportedly $9 million or so over the salary cap and needed to get down by the start of the league year this coming Tuesday, so it was likely players like Brandon Jacobs would have to take a pay cut or get cut. One other option was to do a simple restructuring of a big contract. The team has done just that with Eli Manning. Per NFL Players Association...
