Giants coach Tom Coughlin said there is optimism Larry Donnell's neck issue in not a long-term problem.
Donnell was placed on injured reserve Tuesday and has not played since Week 8. Donnell was able to practice several weeks ago, but he was shut down after an MRI revealed more damage than expected in his neck. It is not a given Donnell is ready for the offseason program.

Giants placed TE Larry Donnell on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

Donnell had been sidelined since Week 9. With Will Tye playing well in his absence, the Giants decided to stop waiting around. Donnell has made a few nice plays the past two seasons, but is a replacement-level player. An impending exclusive rights free agent, Donnell should be back with the G-Men for next summer's training camp, but won't be guaranteed to make the 53-man roster.

Giants declared TE Larry Donnell, OT Emmett Cleary, WR Geremy Davis, OLB Devon Kennard, SS Brandon Meriweather, OT Marshall Newhouse and DE George Selvie inactive for Week 13 against the Jets.

Donnell (neck) hasn't seen the field since Week 8 and it wouldn't be a shock if he missed the rest of the season. Robert Ayers (toe), Justin Pugh (concussion) and Weston Richburg (ankle) are active.

Larry Donnell (neck) has been ruled out for Week 13.

Will Tye will draw another start after turning in his season-best game (6-74-0) in last Sunday's loss to Washington. Donnell has no known timetable for return and could very well miss the remainder of the season.

Giants declared TE Larry Donnell, G Justin Pugh, C Weston Richburg, DE George Selvie, WR Geremy Davis, CB Leon McFadden and S Cooper Taylor inactive for Week 12 against the Redskins.

Donnell may have a fracture in his neck and could be done for the season. Will Tye will continue to start in his place. With Pugh and Richburg out, the Giants are down two starters on the offensive line.

Larry Donnell (neck) is out for Week 12 against the Redskins.

Donnell's MRI results came back positive and it's possible he could miss the rest of the season. Will Tye will draw another start at tight end Sunday versus Washington.
Fri, Nov 27, 2015 02:06:00 PM

Larry Donnell's (neck) MRI came back positive and he's now expected to miss Week 12 against the Redskins.

In the medical field, positive is a bad thing. "Obviously something is wrong," Donnell said. There's a report Donnell may have a fracture in his neck. It sounds like he could be done for the season. In Donnell's absence, Will Tye will continue to handle tight end duties. Jerome Cunningham is the backup.

Larry Donnell (neck) is not practicing Wednesday.

Donnell said he's been cleared to play and feels 100 percent. The Giants obviously feel differently. Either way, if he plays, Donnell isn't fantasy-relevant.

Larry Donnell (neck) said he has been cleared to play and feels 100 percent.

Donnell took part in practice Monday and should play this week. Donnell was nothing but a touchdown-or-bust tight end before the injury, and he may lose snaps to Will Tye. He does not need to be owned.
Mon, Nov 23, 2015 01:04:00 PM

Larry Donnell (neck) is out for Week 10 against the Patriots.

The Giants are hoping he'll be 100 percent after the bye week. Donnell resumed running earlier this week. Will Tye will get another start at tight end Sunday against New England.
Thu, Nov 12, 2015 02:24:00 PM

Larry Donnell (neck) will not practice Thursday.

Donnell reportedly resumed running Wednesday, but missing Thursday's session puts his Week 10 status in serious doubt. Will Tye started and saw six targets last week against the Bucs, but he is not worth using against the Patriots even if Donnell sits.
Thu, Nov 12, 2015 11:25:00 AM

Larry Donnell (neck) will resume running Wednesday.

Donnell went down in Week 8 and missed last week's game against the Bucs. He was initially labeled week-to-week and isn't guaranteed to play Week 10.
Wed, Nov 11, 2015 10:56:00 AM

Giants declared TE Larry Donnell, WR Victor Cruz, CB Prince Amukamara, G Bobby Hart, CB Leon McFadden, OLB J.T. Thomas and MLB Uani' Unga inactive for Week 9 against the Buccaneers.

Donnell is week to week with a sore neck. Craig Dahl (neck), Owa Odighizuwa (hamstring), Rueben Randle (hamstring), Geoff Schwartz (ankle) and Orleans Darkwa (back) are all active for the G-Men. So is DE Jason Pierre-Paul (hand).
Sun, Nov 8, 2015 02:57:00 PM

Larry Donnell (neck) is out for Week 9.

Donnell said he expects to resume practicing next week. "Will Tye" is the next man up at tight end, and isn't a recommended punt play in DFS leagues.
Thu, Nov 5, 2015 02:28:00 PM

Larry Donnell (neck) is considered week-to-week.

Coach Tom Coughlin didn't seem interested at all in talking about injuries Wednesday, saying Donnell is week-to-week or day-to-day. Either way, Donnell isn't practicing today. Will Tye will fill in at tight end against the Bucs.
