There is a "real chance" Giants TE Daniel Fells (MRSA) is released from the hospital this week.

Fells has undergone seven surgeries to this point fighting an antibiotic resistant Staph infection, but reports suggest he has finally turned the corner in his recovery. A source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport Fells' scans and cultures have come back "looking good," and doctors now believe they will not have to amputate his foot. Fells is unlikely to ever play football again, but his playing career is an afterthought at this point. We wish him all the best in his continued recovery.

The New York Daily News reports Giants TE Daniel Fells' career is likely over because of the MRSA infection he has been battling for more than a week.

Fells has had five surgeries on his infected foot already, and he is likely to have a couple more before he is released from the hospital. There were concerns doctors would have to amputate Fells' foot, but reports say it has not come to that. Fells' career may be over, but the only thing that really matters is his health. Thankfully, it appears he is trending in the right direction.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, doctors are "fighting to save" Daniel Fells' foot.

Doctors are concerned the MRSA infection has penetrated the bone and could move into his bloodstream. Fells was moved into the Intensive Care Unit on Friday and has already undergone five surgeries with more planned. Our thoughts are with Fells and his family while he battles this serious illness.

Giants TE Daniel Fells (foot, I.R.) remains hospitalized with MRSA and will undergo a fifth surgery this weekend.

Fells felt ill last weekend and was admitted to the hospital when it was revealed he had a case of staph infection. As MRSA is difficult to treat because it resists common antibiotics, it has a tendency to spread. The Giants scrubbed their entire facility this week. Fells' career and long-term health are in jeopardy.

Giants placed TE Daniel Fells on season-ending injured reserve with a staph infection in his ankle.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Fells underwent foot surgery this week. Coach Tom Coughlin expressed optimism Fells would be able to play against the Bills early last week, but he was ruled out on Saturday. It is likely the team discovered the staph infection over the weekend. Larry Donnell played 69-of-74 snaps with Fells sidelined. The Giants will need to bring in another tight end.

Giants TE Daniel Fells (foot) has been ruled out for Week 4.

Fells was listed as questionable, but didn't make the trip to Buffalo. Larry Donnell will play more snaps with Fells out. The Giants promoted Will Tye to replace Fells.

Giants TE Daniel Fells (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Fells lacks standalone fantasy value, but when he plays he cuts into Larry Donnell's snaps. Coach Tom Coughlin expressed this week that he expects Fells to play against Buffalo, curbing Donnell's Week 4 streamer appeal.
Fri, Oct 2, 2015 02:34:00 PM

Giants TE Daniel Fells (foot) has been ruled out for Week 2.

Larry Donnell should see more snaps with Fells sidelined. Jerome Cunningham replaces Fells in two tight end packages.
Sat, Sep 19, 2015 05:42:00 PM

Giants TE Daniel Fells (foot) shed his walking boot on Thursday.

Thu, Sep 17, 2015 11:19:00 AM

Daniel Fells (foot) did not practice Wednesday.

Fells played 34-of-62 snaps in the Week 1 opener against the Cowboys, catching 3-of-4 targets for 33 yards. He's used as an in-line blocker by the G-Men.
Wed, Sep 16, 2015 12:32:00 PM

Giants re-signed TE Daniel Fells to a one-year contract.

Fells should remain the Giants' No. 2 tight end after posting a 16/188/4 line last year. He played 438 snaps behind Larry Donnell, grading out as a top-ten run blocker according to Pro Football Focus' grades. The Giants keeping Fells may be an ominous sign for disappointing fourth-year TE Adrien Robinson.
Wed, Mar 18, 2015 05:33:00 PM

Daniel Fells caught one pass for a 27-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Dallas.

Fells' touchdown came on his lone target. It resulted in sick feelings for Larry Donnell owners, who did not score on any of his seven catches.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 07:58:00 PM

Updating a previous item, Giants TE Daniel Fells' knee sprain is now being called a "bone bruise."

Coach Tom Coughlin called it "good news." Fells ran with the starters Sunday night, splitting time with Larry Donnell. Both players are well off the fantasy radar.
Mon, Aug 4, 2014 06:38:00 PM

Giants TE Daniel Fells suffered what the team is calling a knee sprain in Sunday night's Hall of Fame game.

He figures to undergo an MRI. Fells caught a ten-yard pass from Eli Manning while rotating with Larry Donnell on the first-team offense. Like the rest of New York's tight end corps, 31-year-old Fells isn't on the fantasy radar.
