Both players were injured during Thursday's game and will be missing their second straight game with their injuries. The Nationals have not passed along any updates on their status, so they are both considered day-to-day at this point.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Report: Giants to start Chris Heston over Matt Cain on Sunday
