Giants WR Rueben Randle (knee tendinitis) is expected to practice on Wednesday.

Randle has been sidelined since his knee tendinitis flared up in the first preseason game. Randle has played through the injury throughout his career, and coach Tom Coughlin expressed confusion as to why this bout was keeping Randle out of practice. Randle still might not play in the third preseason game, but he should be good to go for the regular season.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he is "confused" why WR Rueben Randle (knee tendinitis) is missing practice.

"He’s been able to handle this so well over the years," Coughlin said, "yet this circumstance has been bothersome." Randle has reportedly played through tendinitis in his knee throughout his career, but it appears this bout may be worse. Randle is still expected to be ready Week 1, but he might be held out of the Giants' third preseason game.

Rueben Randle believes the Giants' passing offense will be "close to unstoppable."

"If we can protect Eli (Manning), give us time to get open downfield, there’s not really a coverage you can put out there to stop us," Randle said. You could probably say that for most pass offenses, if the quarterback is protected and the receivers given time to run their routes, most would have success. But the Giants do have a loaded pass game with Manning, Randle, Victor Cruz, and potentially Larry Donnell all being a bit undervalued behind superstar Odell Beckham.

Rueben Randle (knee) could resume practicing on Wednesday.

That's according to coach Tom Coughlin. Randle dropped out of the Giants' preseason opener with knee tendinitis, and has missed the last few practices. His knee injury was never viewed by the G-Men as a legitimate concern.
Aug 18 - 1:10 PM

Rueben Randle is idle at Giants camp due to knee tendinitis.

Randle was dealing with the condition last week and barely practiced. He lasted only three plays in the Giants' preseason opener before limping off, and coach Tom Coughlin admitted afterwards the team made a mistake trying to get Randle to play. Randle should get all the rest he needs this week.
Aug 16 - 8:14 PM

Rueben Randle limped off after three plays of the Giants' preseason opener.

Randle missed practice time with tendonitis in his knees earlier in the week, so it was surprising he was on the field at all. Randle could miss more practice time while he tries to get the injury under control, but his regular season availability is not in serious doubt.

The Giants' opening preseason depth chart lists three wide receivers in the starting lineup.

The Giants will indeed be a base-three-receiver team this season. Rueben Randle, Victor Cruz, and Odell Beckham are listed with the ones, while Corey Washington, Dwayne Harris, and Preston Parker are the second-team wideouts.

When asked about Rueben Randle, Giants WRs coach Sean Ryan said, "To me the guy is a player."

The Giants remain on Randle's side despite his frustrating 2014 season and a couple trips to Tom Coughlin's doghouse. He's just 24 years old, showed well during the spring and will see a ton of snaps in Ben McAdoo's preferred three-wide base. Randle, who was going off the board in the eighth or ninth round last year, can be had in the 12th or 13th round this year.
Aug 3 - 12:20 PM

The Newark Star-Ledger's Jordan Raanan noted Rueben Randle was the best Giants receiver on the field "by a wide margin" during spring practices.

Of course, Odell Beckham (hamstring) and Victor Cruz (knee) didn't participate, so it would have been a concern if Randle wasn't the best receiver out there. But by all accounts, Randle has taken a big step forward after getting benched on two separate occasions last year. Eli Manning has already predicted a breakout year for Randle. Playing in a fast offense, Randle will be a WR3/4 to own as a big-bodied target on the outside and a preferred option in the red zone.
Jun 24 - 9:12 AM

Eli Manning believes Rueben Randle will have a breakout season as a fourth-year pro.

"I think Rueben’ll have a big year," Manning said. "I think Rueben can be a great receiver, a dominant receiver." Randle quietly set career highs in catches (71) and yards (938) last season, but frustrated fantasy owners by only scoring three TDs. "You’ve definitely seen him from Day 1 to Day Now, just the maturity level is definitely improved," added Eli. "He’s all in, he’s been here working, he’s been here off days, and so I've been impressed with his commitment." Still only 24 years old, Randle qualifies as an intriguing post-hype sleeper in 2015 drafts.
Jun 11 - 12:56 PM projects Rueben Randle as the Giants' No. 2 receiver this season, ahead of rehabbing Victor Cruz.

Although his efficiency was lacking and his TD total (3) disappointed in 2014, Randle posted career highs in catches (71) and yards (938) and finished strong with Weeks 16-17 stat lines of 6-132-1 and 6-158. Still only 24 years old, Randle remains an ascending player and could end up as a late-round value pick in 2015 fantasy drafts if Cruz experiences any setbacks.
May 6 - 10:47 AM

Despite some run-ins with coach Tom Coughlin, Rueben Randle remains a part of the Giants' plans.

Randle was targeted 127 times in 2014, second-most on the team. But he produced just 71 catches for 938 yards and three touchdowns -- and also got benched twice for showing up late to meetings. Still, the Giants aren't going to give up on a 23-year-old talent who can really stretch the field. Randle won't get as many looks if Victor Cruz (knee) returns healthy to pair with Odell Beckham in 2015, but Randle will still be a factor as the No. 3 man.
Feb 24 - 9:58 AM

Rueben Randle caught six passes for 158 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Eagles.

Randle was one of fantasy's bigger disappointments this season, frustrating owners with one 100-yard game in the first 14 weeks and frustrating the Giants coaches by being late to meetings. But he showed his front-line ability over the final two weeks, going 6-132-1 against the Rams in Week 15 and then doing it again against the Eagles. Randle's 2015 contract-year outlook would be brighter if Victor Cruz (knee) wasn't expected to make a full recovery and operate in two-wide sets with Odell Beckham. They'll still be room for Randle to get his though as OC Ben McAdoo prefers to operate out of a three-wide formation.

Rueben Randle caught six passes for 132 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 win at St. Louis.

For the first time in three weeks, Randle wasn't late for a team meeting and therefore wasn't benched for the first quarter. It was a good thing, as Eli Manning chucked him a jump ball 49 yards down the field which he came down with early and then got loose to the pylon in the third quarter for a seven-yard score. It's a reminder that when Randle's head is on straight, he can be a plus wideout in the league. That's rarely the case however, as evidenced by just two 100-yard games and three touchdowns all year.
