Justin Pugh shows ‘very little’ improvement from concussion

The Giants will begin preparing for Washington on Wednesday with an offensive line that remains in disarray.

Left guard Justin Pugh, one of the key pieces of a young unit, was scheduled to remain out of practice Wednesday. Pugh has been battling concussion symptoms since the Nov. 8 win over the Bucs in Tampa, and according to coach Tom Coughlin, he’s seen “very little” improvement over the last three weeks.

Pugh sat out the Week 10 loss to the New England Patriots and, even after the bye week, he’s having issues. If he misses a second straight game, veteran John Jerry would likely replace him at left guard.

The Giants could have better news at center, however, where Weston Richburg is expected to practice on Wednesday. Richburg, who is dealing with a high ankle sprain, will be limited, but it’s the first time he’s testing the injury since he needed to be carted off the field against the Patriots two weeks ago. He left that game in a walking boot and did not practice at the start of week.

If Richburg cannot play, the Giants would likely turn to backup center Dallas Reynolds.
