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 signed DT Dominique Hamilton and OG Adam Gettis.

Hamilton was promoted off the practice squad, while Gettis was plucked from the Steelers' practice squad. They'll be bodies at the end of the Giants' bench for the final two games of the season.

Giants placed WLB Jacquian Williams on injured reserve with a concussion, ending his season.

Williams last played in Week 10. He had been an every-snap player before going down, notching 78 tackles. A 2011 sixth-rounder who has spent his entire career with the Giants, Williams is headed for free agency. He's unlikely to draw interest as a starter, and will most likely be back with the G-Men as a reserve.

Giants placed G/T James Brewer (concussion) on injured reserve, ending his season.

On the roster bubble in the summer, Brewer appeared in just two games this season, playing 53 snaps. An impending free agent, Brewer appears highly unlikely to be back with the G-Men.

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.

The New York Post reports there's a "99.9 percent" chance Tom Coughlin remains the Giants' head coach in 2015.

With the Giants on a two-game win streak and sitting at 5-9, Coughlin's odds of keeping his job have increased the past couple weeks after it was guesstimated his chances of coming back were 50-50 last month. If 68-year-old Coughlin is back as the Giants' head coach, we'd expect the higher-ups to force his hand with coaching staff changes -- particularly DC Perry Fewell.

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

Rueben Randle caught two passes for 30 yards in Week 15 against the Redskins.

Randle was benched in the first quarter for the second time in three games. He still managed to finish behind only Odell Beckham with four targets and remains the No. 2 option. Randle will be just a WR4 in Week 16.
Dec 14 - 5:38 PM

Larry Donnell had two catches for 11 yards in Week 15 against the Redskins.

They were his only targets of the game. Donnell hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 11 and is averaging just 34 receiving yards over that span. He'll be a touchdown-dependent TE2 against the Rams.
Dec 14 - 5:36 PM

Andre Williams had 18 carries for 44 yards in Sunday's Week 15 win over Washington.

Rashad Jennings re-injured his ankle on the first play of the game, leaving Williams to run away with the carries again this week. Coming off his breakout against the Titans, he was held in check against Washington's dominant run defense. With Jennings up in the air for Week 16, Williams could close out the season as the starter.
Dec 14 - 5:08 PM

Eli Manning completed 23-of-34 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Redskins.

All three of Manning's touchdowns went to Odell Beckham, who he targeted 15 times. His highlight was a 35-yard strike to Beckham where he looked off the safety. It was a needed breakout after Manning struggled against Tennessee and Jacksonville the last two weeks. Manning will be a QB2 for Week 16 against St. Louis.
Dec 14 - 5:01 PM

Odell Beckham had 12 catches for 143 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's Week 15 win over Washington.

He was targeted a team-high 15 times and accounted for over half of Eli Manning's yards. Beckham had a fourth touchdown called back on a holding penalty. He did most of his damage against Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland, but was used all over the formation. Beckham now has at least 90 yards in seven straight games and is locked in as a WR1.
Dec 14 - 4:31 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

Eli Manning (back) is active for Week 15 against Washington.

Manning was listed on the injury report with a back issue, but practiced in full. The Giants inactives are OL Eric Herman, CB Jayron Hosley, LB James Davidson, RB Chris Ogbonnaya, LB Jacquian Williams, and OT James Brewer.
Dec 14 - 11:28 AM

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports Rashad Jennings may need another week of a "reduced workload" to get his balky ankle right.

In other words, the Giants may need Andre Williams to play a prominent role in their backfield again, coming off his breakout Week 14 performance. It's possible Williams runs away with the carries like he did in last week's win over the Titans. Jennings is fast becoming a running back to avoid in the fantasy semifinals. Williams can't be trusted as more than a dicey flex, either.
