Rashad Jennings expected back this week

Giants running back Rashad Jennings is expected to make his return to the football field this Sunday against the 49ers.

Speaking to reporters, via The New York Daily News, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said that while Jennings will play this week, he won't receive a full work load. That means Andre Williams figures to receive plenty of carries as Jennings eases his way back in.

The Giants have lacked consistency on offense with Jennings out. With Jennings in the lineup, the Giants were 3-2. They haven't won a game since Jennings was injured.

Getting Jennings back will be huge for the Giants as they try to make surprise, though improbable, Wild Card run. Chasing the Eagles and Cowboys for the NFC East title is virtually impossible at this point.
