Casillas (neck) is active for Sunday's contest versus the Cowboys, the Giants' official site reports. While he's available to the Giants' linebacking corps, Casillas will likely yield most of the reps on the strong side to Devon Kennard (hamstring). Either way, Casillas holds little sway in IDP leagues with 23 tackles (13 solo) and one sack on his ledger to date.
Casillas (neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. With Uani Unga (neck) also listed as questionable, the Giants may have reduced depth at linebacker. It isn't a major concern, especially with starter Devon Kennard (hamstring) expected to return from a two-game absence.
Giants linebacker Jonathan Casillas suffered a neck injury in Monday's game against the Eagles and will not return. The extent of Casillas' setback is uncertain, so it's not clear if it's the same neck injury he dealt with during the preseason. Expect an update on his status as more details emerge.
The Giants announced they've signed running back Shane Vereen late Wednesday night. The New York Daily News previously reported that Vereen is being signed to a three-year, $12.35 million deal. Vereen rushed for 391 yards and two touchdowns in 2014. He added 447 receiving yards and three touchdowns in the passing game as well. "(I made this) decision with my family," Vereen said, via the team's official website. "At the end of the day, I wanted to make a decision that was right for us, right for them, and this is a great organization. I was fortunate enough to play in New England with another great organization. This is not a step down; if anything, it is a step up. I am looking forward to the opportunity, and I am enjoying being in New York." The Giants also announced the official signings of offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse, wide receiver/return specialist Dwayne Harris and linebackers Jonathan Casillas and J.T. Thomas III.
The Giants have signed linebacker Jonathan Casillas to a three-year deal worth $10.5 million, the Boston Herald reports. The Patriots acquired Casillas before last year's trading deadline. He played 13 games between the Patriots and Buccaneers in 2014, racking up 37 tackles.
