Ayers notched six tackles (five solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. Despite the fact that the Giants gave up 49 points to the Vikings, Ayers was one of the few bright spots on defense as he recorded 1.5 sacks for the second straight week. The veteran pass-rusher now has eight sacks on the year which marks a new career-high for him. He'll be a solid IDP play next week against the Eagles at home.
Ayers notched six tackles (five solo), adding 1.5 sacks in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Ayers was in Cam Newton's face from start to finish on Sunday as he recorded 1.5 sacks to give him 6.5 on the year. The Giants have given up big plays and a lot of points throughout much of the year, but Ayers has been one of the bright spots along the defensive front. Ayers holds solid IDP value as a pass-rusher from week-to-week.
Ayers (neck) is active for Monday's game in Miami. A mid-week addition to the injury report, Ayers missed practice both Friday and Saturday, leading to a questionable designation for Monday's game. His presence is good news for the Giants' middling pass-rush, but Ayers doesn't get enough snaps to warrant IDP consideration.
Ayers (neck) is listed as questionable on the Giants' Saturday injury report, Tom Rock of Newsday reports. Added to the injury report Friday, Ayers remains questionable heading into Monday night's showdown with the Dolphins. Ayers will likely be a 50-50 call leading up to kickoff, but if he is unable to go, George Selvie would likely take over at left defensive end. Ayers' potential absence could inhibit the Giants' ability to take advantage of a Miami offensive line that has allowed the eighth-most sacks in the NFL this season.
Ayers (neck) was added to the Friday injury report as a non-participant at practice, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. With fellow defensive end Damontre Moore released earlier in the day, the Giants may be a bit thin at defensive end in Monday's game against the Dolphins. Ayers had five tackles and two sacks in a Week 13 loss to the Jets, but he previously had no more than three tackles or one sack in any game this season.
