Player News - Giants

Date: Team: Pos:

Giants added Sterling Shepard (illness) to the injury report as questionable.

Being added this late in the week is a concern, but players usually play through illnesses. The good news is the Giants kick at 1 ET, so we should know Shepard's status early. If he plays, Shepard will a must-start in a great matchup against the Chiefs.

Giants NT Damon Harrison (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

It's obviously a great sign to see Harrison back on the practice field just four days after being carted off with an ankle injury. Even with the rest of his team tanking, Harrison has remained one of the league's best run-stoppers. If Harrison suits up against the Chiefs, it would be a downgrade to Kareem Hunt's outlook.

Giants placed WLB Keenan Robinson on injured reserve with a quad injury, ending his season.

Often banged up, Robinson was forced into a starting role the past few weeks. He was not performing well. The 28 year old is headed to free agency in the offseason.
Nov 14 - 5:07 PM

Giants signed OLB Akeem Ayers and OG John Greco.

They're depth signings that will help the Giants play out the string. With WLB Keenan Robinson (quad) headed to injured reserve, Ayers could see some immediate snaps on defense.
Nov 14 - 5:05 PM

Giants RT Justin Pugh is out indefinitely with a back injury.

The sky isn't falling in New York; it's already fallen. Pugh had mostly solidified the Giants' right tackle void after converting from left guard, and is arguably New York's best offensive lineman. Ahead of a Week 11 date with the Chiefs, Pugh's loss is bad news for both Eli Manning and Orleans Darkwa.

A statement from Giants ownership on Monday indicated Ben McAdoo will likely last the season as the team's head coach.

McAdoo's firing is inevitable, but the Tisch and Mara families sound committed to evaluating his performance at the end of the year, and not pulling the plug during it. "Ben McAdoo is our head coach and has our support. We are in the midst of an extremely disappointing season. Our performance this year, particularly the past two weeks, is inexcusable and frustrating," the statement reads. "... Our plan is to do what we have always done, which is to not offer a running commentary on the season. ... At the end of the year, we will evaluate the 2017 season in its entirety and make a determination on how we move forward."

Roger Lewis caught 3-of-4 targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 10 loss to the 49ers.

Both the catches and yards were Lewis' most since Week 1, another game where Odell Beckham was absent. Lewis has totaled just six catches in four games since OBJ's season-ending injury.
Nov 12 - 7:56 PM

Shane Vereen caught 4-of-4 targets for 27 yards in the Giants' Week 10 loss to the 49ers, adding five carries for 11 yards.

The five carries were one off Vereen's season high, while the receiving yards were tied for his most since Week 1. That tells you all you need to know about Vereen's (lack of) fantasy value.
Nov 12 - 7:46 PM

Wayne Gallman rushed three times for 22 yards in the Giants' Week 10 loss to the 49ers.

The three carries were Gallman's fewest since he became a part of the offense six games ago. With Orleans Darkwa running well, Gallman isn't offering standalone value in fantasy leagues.
Nov 12 - 7:44 PM

Orleans Darkwa rushed 14 times for 70 yards in the Giants' Week 10 loss to the 49ers.

He added two receptions for 18 yards. Darkwa probably should have gotten more work against the 49ers' bottom-barrel run defense, but the 49ers are also extremely vulnerable through the air, and Eli Manning had a decent game. Darkwa has now cleared 70 yards rushing in 3-of-4 games. He'll be in the low-end RB2 mix for next week's potential shootout with the Chiefs.
Nov 12 - 7:41 PM

Sterling Shepard caught 11-of-13 targets for 142 yards in the Giants' Week 10 loss to the 49ers.

Each of the targets, catches and yards were new career highs for the Giants' fill-in No. 1 receiver. He has 16 catches for 212 yards in two games since returning from his ankle injury. The highlight today was a ridiculous, diving one-handed grab, a la Odell Beckham. Soaking up looks and playing legitimately good football, Shepard will be a high-end WR2 for next week's game against the Chiefs' sieve-like defense.
Nov 12 - 7:34 PM

Evan Engram caught 6-of-9 targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 10 loss to the 49ers.

Although the yards were Engram's fewest in four games since Odell Beckham went down, he's now found the end zone each week since Beckham's season ended. Engram took Eric Reid to school on his second quarter score in Santa Clara. He'll remain an elite TE1 for next week's possible shootout with the Chiefs.
Nov 12 - 7:32 PM

Eli Manning completed 28-of-37 passes for 273 yards and two touchdowns in the Giants' 31-21, Week 10 loss to the 49ers.

Manning didn't throw any picks, but he did donate the ball to the 49ers on an absurd fumble. Inches from the ground on a sack, Manning for some reason attempted to heave the ball forward. The 49ers scored a touchdown four plays later. Although his play has hardly been sterling, Manning hasn't been one of the Giants' biggest problems, especially since Sterling Shepard's return two games ago. He'll be firmly on the streaming radar for next week's game against the Chiefs' swinging gate defense.
Nov 12 - 7:26 PM

Giants NT Damon Harrison was carted off with an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

Harrison went down in the fourth quarter, and was quickly ruled out. It's awful news for one of the league's worst teams, as "Snacks" has continued to gobble up the run this season, and is one of the few G-Men playing up to his standards.
Nov 12 - 7:16 PM

Giants RE Olivier Vernon (ankle) is active for Week 10 against the 49ers.

Vernon had been sidelined since Week 4. It's a big boost for the G-Men's free-falling defense. Inactive for the Giants are LB B.J. Goodson, LB Devon Kennard, LB Keenan Robinson, QB Davis Webb, WR Travis Rudolph, CB Donte Deayon and OT Chad Wheeler.
