Giants FS Stevie Brown has been benched for Quintin Demps.

It's not a surprise after Brown was sent to the pine on Sunday, but it was fifth-rounder Nat Berhe who replaced him, not Demps. However, both ESPN New York and the Newark Star-Ledger report it will be Demps opposite Antrel Rolle against the Redskins on Thursday.

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) returned to practice on Tuesday, getting in a limited session.

Beason was technically "limited" on Monday, but it was just an approximation, as the Giants didn't actually practice. Beason's aggravation of his offseason injury clearly isn't as serious as first feared, but he remains much more likely to return in Week 5 than suit up for Thursday's game against the Redskins. Jameel McClain will again start in his absence if he can't go.

Odell Beckham (hamstring) was officially "limited" in Tuesday's return to practice.

Per coach Tom Coughlin, Beckham participated in individual drills, and "made it through without a setback." He won't be active for Thursday's trip to Washington, but should finally be ready to make his NFL debut in Week 5 against the Falcons. That is, of course, provided he avoids setbacks.
Sep 23 - 2:04 PM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) participated in on-field practice Tuesday for the first time since Aug. 18.

Beckham was just participating in individual drills, but it's finally a step in right direction. He's had multiple setbacks since pulling his hamstring way back in June. The No. 12 overall pick won't play Thursday, but could make his NFL debut in Week 5 and needs to be on deep-league radars. The Giants want to use a three-wide set as their base.

Odell Beckham (hamstring) will not practice in full this week.

The rookie was participating in individual drills Tuesday for the first time since Aug. 21. In a best-case scenario, Beckham will get back in full practice next week and have a limited role in Week 5. He'll eventually get on the deep-league radar thanks to all the three-wide sets the Giants run.

Giants FS Stevie Brown was benched in the fourth quarter of Sunday's Week 3 win over the Texans.

Brown allowed Damaris Johnson to get behind him for a 44-yard touchdown and then took a seat on the pine as fifth-round rookie Nat Berhe came on. Brown hasn't been the same since tearing his left ACL in the 2013 preseason.
Sep 23 - 9:29 AM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) did not practice Monday.

The Giants conducted a walkthrough for Thursday night's game against the Redskins. We're not expecting Beckham to make his debut until at least Week 5.
Sep 22 - 6:18 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) is considered a "long shot" to play in Thursday night's game against the Redskins.

Beason might be able to practice on a limited basis this week, but the quick turnaround isn't helping his chances after Beason's Week 2 aggravation of his offseason toe injury. Look for Jameel McClain to start against the Skins.
Sep 22 - 4:05 PM's Kimberly Jones reports Odell Beckham (hamstring) will not make his NFL debut in Week 4.

CBS had reported that Beckham was "fully expected" to debut on Thursday Night Football against the Redskins. Instead, he'll rest up another 10 days for Week 5. Beckham remains off the radar in 12-14 team leagues.
Sep 22 - 2:59 PM

Rueben Randle caught five passes for 27 yards in the Giants' Week 3 win over the Texans.

Randle was targeted a team-high ten times, and the chemistry between he and Eli Manning appears to be growing. But Randle is seeing mostly short passes. He did see one end-zone look, but got tangled up with the Houston cornerback and couldn't make the one-handed catch. Randle gets the DeAngelo Hall-less Redskins on Thursday night. He's a boom-or-bust WR3/4.
Sep 21 - 6:03 PM

Larry Donnell caught six passes for 45 yards in the Giants' Week 3 win over the Texans.

Donnell caught all six passes that came his way, and has now been targeted 22 times on the season. Donnell was on his way to the end zone in the first half, but ended up losing a fumble at the four-yard line. He's put himself in the TE1/2 mix as a favorite of Eli Manning. Donnell gets the Redskins on Thursday night.
Sep 21 - 5:50 PM

Victor Cruz caught five passes for 107 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 3 win over the Texans.

After a drop-filled first two weeks, Cruz reeled in 5-of-6 targets. He worked mostly against CB Kareem Jackson. Cruz took a quick slant upfield for a 61-yard gain in the first half, but was caught from behind around the 15-yard line. He later found the end zone on a post pattern from 26 yards out. Cruz stopped on a dime, changed direction, and exploded toward the end zone for the score. The Giants' passing game has found a bit of a rhythm the past two weeks. They'll look to continue it Thursday against the Redskins. Cruz is a solid WR2/3.
Sep 21 - 5:35 PM

Andre Williams rushed for 18 yards on six carries in the Giants' Week 3 win over the Texans.

Williams got one series to himself, but didn't do much with the carries and was way out-touched by Rashad Jennings 34-6. Jennings also gets all the goal-line looks, and cashed one in for a one-yard score Sunday. Williams has no fantasy value in re-draft leagues. He won't have any unless Jennings gets hurt.
Sep 21 - 5:13 PM

Eli Manning completed 21-of-28 passes for 234 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Giants' Week 3, 30-17 win over the Texans.

Manning has now posted back-to-back strong starts after the preseason and Week 1 debacles. Eli hit Victor Cruz for a 61-yard gain on a quick slant early in the first half, before again finding Cruz on a post for a 26-yard score. His best throw of the game, though, went to Daniel Fells for a nine-yard touchdown. Eli placed the ball over the top of the safety and to the right of a linebacker only where Fells could catch it. The offense is starting to wake up for Giants, but Eli is still just a low-end QB2. The G-Men take on the Redskins on Thursday night.
Sep 21 - 4:47 PM

Rashad Jennings rushed for 176 yards and one touchdown on 34 carries in the Giants' Week 3, 30-17 drubbing of the Texans.

It was a career day for Jennings, who set a new career-high in rushing yards by 68 yards over his previous mark. He's now totaled 381 yards and two scores through three games as the Giants' clear-cut every-down workhorse. Jennings plays in every situation and gets the goal-line looks, as he pounded his score in from one yard out in this one. Jennings gets the Redskins next Thursday night.
