Casillas (calf) is officially listed as active for Monday's matchup against the Bengals. This is relatively unsurprising, as it was reported earlier Monday that Casillas was expected to play in the contest. Barring any setbacks, the veteran figures to see his usual workload at weakside linebacker.
Casillas (calf) is expected to play Monday night against the Bengals, ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports. Casillas surprisingly appeared on Saturday's injury report with a calf injury, but the ailment is considered to be minor and thus not anticipated to keep him sidelined Monday. That comes as good news for the Giants defense, as Casillas' 60 total tackles currently ranks second on the team.
Casillas is questionable for Monday's game against the Bengals due to a calf injury. Casillas didn't appear on the Giants' injury report until Friday, when he was limited at practice, meaning he likely suffered the injury during the week. His status will be confirmed before game time Monday. Look for Keenan Robinson to see a spot start if Casillas is held out.
Casillas posted 11 tackles Sunday against the Ravens. Casillas posted his second double-digit tackle effort of the season, and is now averaging 8.5 stops per contest. The veteran never averaged as many as six tackles per game in the first seven years of his career, but the sample size is now large enough that his production appears to be sustainable. In deeper IDP leagues, the one-category producer is worth a roster spot.
Casillas had 11 total tackles Sunday against the Cowboys, seven of the solo variety. He had a great camp and followed it up with a strong game, flying around the field and helping to limit Ezekiel Elliott. He's the team's starting weak-side linebacker and should be a nice source of tackles.
