Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins wasn’t practicing on Wednesday due to an ankle injury, but that doesn’t mean Jenkins wasn’t healthy enough to attack fans on Twitter.

Just before the start of practice, Jenkins began tweeting out his stats and a defense of his individual season by pointing out that he hadn’t given up a touchdown since Week 3.

A fan replied that his individual stats hasn’t helped the Giants win games as the team is riding a franchise record nine-game losing streak and are 2-11.

Jenkins responded to the fan by calling him an offensive slur:

Giants head coach Pat Shurmur was asked about Jenkins tweet and responded by saying that he was “just made aware of the tweets” and that Jenkins “shouldn’t be tweeting during practice.”
