    Giants' Larry Donnell: Placed on season-ending IR

    Donnell (neck) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports. Donnell strongly hinted at this outcome two weeks ago when an MRI revealed that the problem with his neck is worse than initially believed. He should have time to recover before training camp, but the Giants will have to make do with Will Tye and Jerome Cunningham for the rest of the season. It won't be surprising if the team prioritizes the tight end position this offseason, as the lead-footed Donnell isn't much of a threat outside of the red zone, and Tye has been very inconsistent.

    Giants' Larry Donnell: Next MRI in a 'couple of weeks'

    Donnell said Wednesday that the next MRI on his neck will occur in a "couple of weeks," Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports. Donnell is already in danger of missing the rest of the season, but at least his immediate playing status is clear, as he likely won't suit up in the interim. In the meantime, Will Tye will act as the Giants' starting tight end.

    Giants' Larry Donnell: Says he won't play for a while

    Donnell (neck) said it will be a while before he is able to play again, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. Although the Giants haven't made anything official, Donnell doesn't seem likely to play again this season. Both he and head coach Tom Coughlin have hinted strongly in that direction, after a recent MRI revealed a "troubling result" in Donnell's neck. The Giants are left with Will Tye and Jerome Cunningham at tight end.

    Giants' Larry Donnell: Ruled out for Sunday

    Donnell (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Donnell was cleared at the beginning of the week, but a follow-up MRI found an issue in his neck, which may threaten his availability for the remainder of the season. Will Tye and Jerome Cunningham, neither of whom has impressed thus far, will serve as the team's top tight ends. Tye has been getting more playing time, but his struggles could create an opening for Cunningham.

    Giants' Larry Donnell: Not expected to play Sunday

    Donnell isn't expected to play Sunday at Washington, after the Giants found a "troubling result" on an MRI on his neck, Dan Graziano of ESPN New York reports. "It's not looking good," Donnell said. On Monday, Donnell stated that he felt 100 percent after doctors cleared him, but Wednesday's development leaves the tight end without a return date. While he'll likely be ruled out in advance of Sunday's game, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com speculated that Donnell may be in danger of missing the rest of the season. In the meantime, Will Tye and Jerome Cunningham will handle TE reps for the Giants, but a free-agent addition to the corps isn't out of the question.

    Giants' Larry Donnell: Will not practice Wednesday

    Donnell (neck) will not practice Wednesday, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. Donnell was cleared by team doctors to resume football activities Monday, so it's somewhat surprising to see the Giants list him as inactive on their pre-practice report. His game-time status should gain more clarity as the week progresses, so fantasy owners should check back in closer to Friday for more information.

    Giants' Larry Donnell: Cleared by doctors

    Donnell (neck) has been cleared by doctors and said he feels 100 percent healthy, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports. Coming out of a bye week, Donnell will likely return for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Fill-in starter Will Tye was more involved in the past two games, but he didn't play well enough to threaten Donnell's role. The Giants will be glad to have their top tight end healthy.

    Giants' Larry Donnell: Won't play against Patriots

    Donnell (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. With Donnell missing a second straight game, the Giants will again turn to undrafted rookie Will Tye, who struggled in last week's win over the Buccaneers. Donnell hopes to return after the Giants' bye week for a Week 12 game against the Redskins.

    Giants' Larry Donnell: On pace for another absence in Week 10

    Donnell appears on pace to sit out Sunday versus the Patriots due to his sore neck. According to Dan Graziano of ESPN New York, Donnell said that he "tried" to make a case for playing in Week 10, but the Giants will likely hold out the tight end. With the Giants' bye week to follow, Donnell will be afforded additional time to rest his sore neck, which he confirmed isn't 100 percent with Josina Anderson of ESPN. Donnell himself believes that the best course of action is a return in Week 12 at Washington. With the stars aligning against active status this Sunday, expect the organization to make a clear declaration regarding his status in the near future.
