Giants CB Eli Apple (groin) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

It's not a good sign for his Week 3 availability. B.W. Webb would likely start opposite Janoris Jenkins if Apple can't go against the Texans on Sunday.
Sep 20 - 1:34 PM

Evan Engram (ankle) was practicing again on Thursday.

Engram will probably be slapped with another "limited" tag, but his Week 3 status does not appear to be in doubt. With Eli Manning crashing deeper and deeper, Engram is merely a low-end TE1.

Giants CB Eli Apple (groin) is not practicing Wednesday.

Apple was hurt last week against the Cowboys. He's the starter opposite Janoris Jenkins. This is a secondary that simply can't afford to lose any starters.
Sep 19 - 3:26 PM

Evan Engram (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Engram twisted his ankle late in the Week 2 loss to the Cowboys. Despite the return of Odell Beckham and addition of Saquon Barkley, Engram has continued to produce. He has nine grabs for 85 yards and a score so far.
Sep 19 - 3:24 PM

Olivier Vernon (ankle) remains sidelined at Giants practice.

He's yet to practice this season. How about we let you know when he does return? Sounds good. Vernon is working back from a high-ankle sprain.
Sep 19 - 3:23 PM

Giants signed FB Elijhaa Penny.

Penny was on the Cardinals' practice squad. ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan hints Penny will be taking FB Shane Smith's roster spot outright after Smith struggled against the Cowboys. Judging from how the Giants looked on Sunday night, switching fullbacks will be tantamount to re-arranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
Sep 18 - 3:35 PM

Giants C Jon Halapio suffered a season-ending broken ankle Week 2 against the Cowboys.

The injury looked bad on the field, and it turned out to be a season-ender. Halapio will undergo surgery this week, and he should land on injured reserve soon. John Greco replaced Halapio on Sunday night.
Sep 17 - 12:26 PM

Evan Engram caught seven passes for 67 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against Dallas.

Engram had just three catches for 27 yards in the first half. He salvaged his night late with a wide open 18-yard touchdown. It's a solid rebound for Engram after getting held to two receptions in the season opener. Engram's target share is down with Odell Beckham back, but he's still one of the top tight ends in the league.
Sep 17 - 12:09 AM

Sterling Shepard caught 3-of-5 passes for 24 yards in Week 2 against the Cowboys.

Shepard finished behind Odell Beckham, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley in targets. He missed some time this week with a back injury, but it wasn't a factor in his quiet night. Shepard won't be more than a WR4 for next week's game against the Texans.
Sep 16 - 11:51 PM

Odell Beckham caught 4-of-9 targets for 51 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Cowboys.

Beckham was held in check with two catches in the first half. He added some yards late with the Giants airing it out, but pass protection issues prevented Beckham from getting anything going downfield with Eli Manning. The Giants offensive line is a concern for Beckham's week to week consistency, but there's not much reason to downgrade his ROS outlook. Beckham will match up with Texans CB Johnathan Joseph in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 11:48 PM

Saquon Barkley rushed 11 times for 28 yards and caught 14-of-16 targets for 80 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Cowboys.

Barkley couldn't get anything going with the Giants getting dominated up front. His pass game usage was encouraging after getting held to two catches last week, but it was a product of bad offensive line play. Barkley has lived up to his draft status, going over 100 total yards in his first two games. He's a mid-range RB1 for a matchup against a solid Houston run defense in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 11:35 PM

Eli Manning completed 33-of-44 passes for 279 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Cowboys.

Manning was under countless pressures, getting sacked six times. He was a statue in the pocket, holding on to the ball too long and failing to extend plays. Manning's touchdown came to a wide-open Evan Engram in garbage time. It's another concerning game coming off last week's zero touchdown effort. Manning won't be a streaming option for Week 3's matchup with Houston.
Sep 16 - 11:23 PM

Giants C Jon Halapio was carted off with a leg injury in Week 2 against the Cowboys.

This looked like a bad injury, with Halapio getting put in an air cast. It's the last thing the Giants needed on a struggling offensive line. John Greco replaced Halapio.
Sep 16 - 10:22 PM

Giants CB Eli Apple left Week 2 against the Cowboys with a groin injury.

He was immediately ruled out. Apple has played better than expected to start the year. Losing him would a blow to the Giants' secondary.
Sep 16 - 10:18 PM

Sterling Shepard (back) is active for Week 2 against the Cowboys.

Shepard was removed from the injury report Friday, so his status wasn't in doubt. The Giants inactives are LB Olivier Vernon, QB Kyle Lauletta, S Kamrin Moore, CB Michael Jordan, LB Tae Davis, C Evan Brown, and C Spencer Pulley
