Rashad Jennings (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.
Jennings played one offensive snap last week against the Redskins and aggravated his previous ankle injury on the play. If Jennings can't play -- and it seems unlikely that he will -- Andre Williams will handle a big bulk of the carries against the Rams. Williams would come into play as a back-end RB2.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin didn't update Rashad Jennings' (ankle) status at Monday's presser.

What Coughlin did have to say wasn't exactly encouraging. "Whether or not we're all the way back to Square 1, I don't know that." At best, Jennings will be limited for Week 16. At worst, he's played his final down of the season. Fantasy owners can't be counting on Jennings suiting up against the Rams, while Andre Williams is a must add on the off chance he's still available.

Rashad Jennings aggravated his lingering ankle injury during Sunday's win over the Giants.

Jennings re-sprained the joint on his very first carry of the game. Andre Williams finished it out, rushing 18 times for 44 yards and catching one ball for nine yards. With just two games left in this lost season for the Giants, we wouldn't be surprised if Jennings shuts it down. Williams would be a weak plug-n-play at St. Louis in Week 16.
Dec 14 - 8:24 PM

Rashad Jennings left Sunday's Week 15 game against Washington with an ankle injury.

It's the same ankle that limited Jennings to three touches last week. The Giants are listing him as questionable to return, but he's done for the game. Andre Williams will continue to handle all the carries in his absence.
Dec 14 - 2:13 PM

Giants coach Tom Coughlin hinted the team may take a hot-hand approach at running back in Week 15 against the Redskins.

Keep in mind the Redskins consistently play strong run defense, so it's entirely possible neither Andre Williams nor Rashad Jennings establishes a hot hand on Sunday. Still, this is a big concern for Jennings' fantasy outlook and an indication Williams may have earned more of the carry share after his Week 14 breakout game. Coughlin called the starting running back "not important," and said the Giants will "see how things go after the first 15 plays" when determining which running back will get more work. Jennings is a dicey RB2/flex play in fantasy semifinals week.
Dec 12 - 1:23 PM

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano expects Rashad Jennings to resume his role as the full-time starter in Week 15 against the Redskins.

After playing just 16-of-76 snaps and seeing three touches in Week 14 due to an ankle injury, Jennings isn't even on the injury report this week. He's expected to get the start against Washington and handle his normal workload, sending Andre Williams back to a limited role as the No. 2 despite rushing for 131 yards and one touchdown last week. Jennings is our No. 14 running back for Week 15.
Dec 12 - 10:22 AM

Coach Tom Coughlin said Rashad Jennings should be able to carry more of a full load Week 15 against the Redskins.

Jennings isn't even on the Week 15 injury report after being limited to three touches last week against the Titans coming off an ankle injury. Andre Williams had his best game of the season, rushing for 131 yards and one touchdown on 24 carries, so we'd expect him to have a role. Jennings will be more of an RB2 against a Redskins defense playing well against the run in 2014.
Dec 10 - 11:24 AM

Rashad Jennings rushed two times for five yards and caught a 17-yard pass in Week 14 against the Titans.

Jennings was obviously not 100 percent after injuring his ankle last week. Andre Williams got the start and showed well enough with 131 yards and one touchdown on 24 carries to keep Jennings off the field. Jennings' practice status will need to be monitored again this week ahead of Week 15 vs. the Redskins.
Dec 7 - 5:41 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Rashad Jennings (ankle) passed his pregame warmups and will play Week 14 against the Titans.

Per Mort, Jennings will be eased into the game with an opportunity to earn an increased role depending on how he holds up. Jennings will be hard to trust, however, due to the high risk of re-injury. It's tough because the Giants are facing the league's worst run defense. Play Jennings at your own risk.
Dec 7 - 11:14 AM

Rashad Jennings (ankle, questionable) traveled with the Giants to Nashville for the team's Week 14 matchup with the Titans.

Jennings has contented he would play if he traveled with the team to Nashville, so it appears he is a good bet to suit up on Sunday. How much he will play or how effective he will be is still in question. Jennings reportedly looked hobbled in practice on Friday, and Jennings himself said he "definitely" will not be 100 percent. Even if he is active, there is always the chance he aggravates the injury early in the game. Jennings will be a high-risk RB3 despite a tasty matchup against the Titans.
Dec 6 - 12:47 PM

Rashad Jennings (ankle, questionable) conceded Friday he "definitely" won't be 100 percent if he plays Sunday at Tennessee.

Per beat writer Jordan Raanan, Jennings appeared "somewhat hobbled" by his right ankle injury during Friday's "limited" practice. "It felt like ... you can feel it," Jennings said. "It's definitely not going to be [100 percent]. It's just getting it to the point where I can go." Raanan expects a 50-50 split between Jennings and Andre Williams if Jennings is active on Sunday.
Dec 5 - 3:05 PM

Coach Tom Coughlin was noncommittal Friday when asked if Rashad Jennings (ankle, questionable) will play against the Titans.

"Let's see how he responds," Coughlin stated. Jennings has been wildly injury prone this year, dealing with knee and ankle ailments. He turns 30 in March. Andre Williams should be owned in all fantasy football leagues.
Dec 5 - 1:29 PM

Rashad Jennings (ankle) was limited in his return to practice Friday.

His availability for Sunday's game at Tennessee isn't assured, but Jennings' ability to practice at all suggests he has a realistic chance to play. Stay tuned for more updates. Andre Williams is Jennings' backup.
Dec 5 - 1:21 PM

Rashad Jennings (ankle) returned to Giants practice Friday.

Jennings was always expected to get out on the field and do something on Friday. How much he was able to do is the question. Jennings' first plan of business was to see if he can run. We'll update Jennings' status again this afternoon when the Giants release their final injury report for Week 14.
Dec 5 - 12:34 PM

Rashad Jennings (ankle) is not practicing again Thursday.

Jennings couldn't finish Sunday's loss at Jacksonville and admitted afterward he couldn't press down on his ankle. Unless he makes a surprise return to practice Friday, it's looking like rookie Andre Williams will be back in the saddle at Tennessee this week. Although Williams is extremely limited at this point in his career and has a ridiculous 2.93 YPC average, he'd be a reasonable RB2 bet due to touchdown upside and the Titans' league-worst run defense.
