Still battling an injured hamstring, Brandon Jacobs is doubtful for the Giants' Week 8 game in Philadelphia, according to Conor Orr, the Giants' beat writer for The Star-Ledger.

Jacobs, who hasn't practiced all week, had his best game of the season against Chicago on Oct. 11, running for 106 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries, but he missed Monday night's 23-7 win over Minnesota.

That means newly-signed Peyton Hillis will likely be the featured back again. He ran for 36 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries and caught five passes for 45 yards in his Giants' debut.

The Giants (1-6), who have lost eight in a row on the road, visit the Eagles (3-4) at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, as Philadelphia goes for its first season sweep of New York since 2010.
