Brandon Marshall (ankle) hopes to play in 2018.
He opted for season-ending surgery after injuring his ankle in Week 5. The 33-year-old Marshall hasn't shown much the last two years, but isn't ready to hang up his cleats. "I'm a competitor, and I don't want to go out like that," he said. "I'm definitely not going out like that." Marshall is under contract through 2018, though it wouldn't be a surprise if the Giants moved on from him this offseason. Oct 15 - 10:06 AM

Brandon Marshall announced on Instagram that he'll undergo season-ending ankle surgery on Tuesday.

This comes straight out of left field. After the Week 5 loss, coach Ben McAdoo said Marshall had a mere "sprained" ankle, but it's obviously much more serious. Signed to a two-year deal in the offseason, Marshall was a colossal bust through 4.5 games, catching 18 balls for 154 scoreless yards and never fitting in with Eli Manning. Turning 34 next March, it's conceivable Marshall is done. The Giants lost all three of Marshall, Odell Beckham, and Dwayne Harris to season-ending injuries in Week 5. Roger Lewis and Sterling Shepard (when healthy, ankle) will be the Nos. 1 and 2 wideouts the rest of the way. Embrace the tank.

The Giants reportedly fear Brandon Marshall (ankle) will miss "multiple games."

Odell Beckham is out for the year, and Sterling Shepard is day to day at best with his own ankle injury. Marshall appears to have suffered a high ankle sprain or something worse. If Shepard can't go for Week 6 against the Broncos, Roger Lewis would likely operate as the Giants' No. 1 wideout, although rookie TE Evan Engram will be the favorite for targets in New York's pass-catcher corps.

Speaking after Sunday's loss, Giants coach Ben McAdoo said Brandon Marshall is dealing with a "sprained" ankle.

This doesn't tell us much, as Marshall's injury appeared to be quite severe. At the very least, it's hard to see how he will be ready for Week 6. The Giants lost four of their top five receivers on Sunday, with only Roger Lewis emerging unscathed. Marshall's status will be updated in the next 24 hours.
Oct 8 - 4:48 PM

Brandon Marshall was forced from the Giants' Week 5 game against the Chargers with a left ankle/Achilles' issue.

This one didn't look good. Making a spectacular sideline grab, Marshall's left ankle/Achilles' popped as he tried to keep both feet in bounds. He went down immediately, and was loaded into a cart after a few moments on the sideline. He's done for the day, and quite possibly for the season. Roger Lewis will slide into three-receiver sets for the Giants.

Brandon Marshall (toe) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It's the first we've heard of a toe issue for him, but Marshall should be fine for Week 5 against the Chargers. He saw 10 targets last week, but has yet to top 66 yards in a game or score a touchdown through four weeks.
Oct 4 - 2:00 PM

Brandon Marshall said he is "just not playing well right now."

"Just have to get better," Marshall said. "Have to find ways to get better." Struggling to get separation and struggling to catch the ball when it comes his way, Marshall has hauled in just 16-of-30 targets this season for 139 scoreless yards. He does have double-digit looks in back-to-back weeks, however, and made a tough contested catch to set up a touchdown against the Bucs. He will be a volume-based WR4/FLEX play this week against the Chargers.

Brandon Marshall hauled in 6-of-10 targets for 46 yards in the Giants' Week 4 loss to the Bucs.

Marshall is still struggling to create separation and had a couple passes broken up in the first half as a result, but he was able to use his size to make a couple big grabs in the third quarter including a great catch inside the five to set up a touchdown. In a passing offense which looks to be on the way up, Marshall will be a WR4/FLEX option through the byes.
Oct 1 - 7:52 PM

Brandon Marshall caught 8-of-11 targets for 66 yards in the Giants' Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

The Giants went with a short-pass, up-tempo offense in this game in an effort to get the ball out of Eli Manning's hands quickly. It mostly worked, as the Giants scored 24 points and Marshall had run-after-catch chances, although he didn't do much with them. What's left in Marshall's tank remains up for debate. He will be a fringe WR4/flex play in Week 4 against the Buccaneers.
Sep 24 - 5:05 PM

Brandon Marshall caught 1-of-5 targets for 17 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.

Marshall was held without a catch on one target in the first half and was stopped at the one-yard line on his lone grab in the third quarter. He later committed a flat-out brutal drop down the sideline on a play where he had a step on the cornerback for what should have been a gain of 30-plus yards. Marshall has no connection with Eli Manning right now and has just two catches for 27 yards through two games. He's closer to being droppable than usable in fantasy.
Sep 18 - 11:43 PM

Brandon Marshall was held to one catch for 10 yards in Week 1 against the Cowboys.

His only catch came on the second last play of the game. Marshall was targeted four times, behind Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram, and Roger Lewis. Even if Odell Beckham doesn't return, Marshall is a Week 2 fade against Detroit.
Sep 11 - 12:20 AM

Brandon Marshall (shoulder) said he is ready to go for Week 1.

Marshall missed a week of practice and the final two preseason games after suffering a shoulder injury, but he will be all systems go for the opener. "Other than that hit I had in Cleveland the body feels amazing," Marshall said. "So, that's kind of encouraging being 33 and trying to be aware of where I'm at." It is concerning Marshall has already suffered an injury after being banged up all of last year, but he is at least entering Week 1 healthy. It remains to be seen if Odell Beckham will join him.

Brandon Marshall (shoulder) resumed practicing on Monday.

Marshall missed a week of practice. Now 33, Marshall was banged up for much of 2016, but missed only one game. His health is not a Week 1 concern.
Aug 28 - 1:33 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Giants aren't concerned about Brandon Marshall's shoulder injury.

Rapsheet was told "he'll be fine" while adding that the Giants have "no worries." Marshall bowed out of Monday's preseason game with a shoulder issue but his X-rays came back negative. It looks like the G-Men dodged a couple of major injury bullets with Marshall and Odell Beckham both escaping Monday night's game with only minor ailments.
Aug 22 - 4:09 PM

Brandon Marshall is undergoing an X-ray on his shoulder.

It's unclear when the injury happened, as Marshall caught a short little out route pass on the final play of the first half and didn't appear to be injured on the play. He didn't come out after halftime with the starters done for the night. Marshall has long been one of the toughest receivers in the league.
