    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/28/16LBJonathan CasillasRibsQUESTIONABLECasillas (ribs) told reporters that he has no fractures and expects to play in the season opener, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

    It was originally reported that Casillas was dealing with cracked ribs after Saturday's preseason game with the Jets. However, the 29-year-old insists that there are no fractures and he's not expecting to miss too much time recovering from the injury. Casillas is expected to anchor a much bolstered Giants defense in 2016.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/28/16LBB.J. GoodsonConcussionQUESTIONABLEGoodson sustained a concussion during Saturday's preseason contest versus the Jets.

    Selected by the Giants in the fourth round of the 2016, Goodson has so far been unable to rise above third-string status on the unofficial depth chart, despite combining for 11 tackles (10 solo) in the team's first two exhibitions. Due to the murkiness surrounding concussions, a timetable for a return is up in the air.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/28/16DBLeon HallConcussionQUESTIONABLEHall suffered a concussion during Saturday's preseason contest against the Jets, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

    The Giants inked Hall to a contract in early August to bolster their depth at cornerback, but he's worked as a free safety in recent practices due to injuries befalling each player at the position. With his diagnosis known, there's no telling when Hall may be able to return to the field.

    08/28/16TEMatt LaCosseKneeOUTLaCosse (knee) is slated to undergo surgery on his right knee and will be sidelined indefinitely, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

    LaCosse injured his knee at the start of training camp and has been dealing with pain and swelling ever since. He's opted to undergo surgery to alleviate the pain and will be sidelined indefinitely, although the Giants aren't ruling out a potential return for the 23-year-old tight end later in the season. LaCosse was battling for playing time with the likes of Will Tye and Larry Donnell, so along with those two players, his absence could also mean extra reps for Will Johnson (neck) once healthy.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/28/16RBNikita WhitlockFootQUESTIONABLEWhitlock injured his foot in Saturday's win over the Jets, James Kratch of NJ.com reports.

    Whitlock was carted off the field on Saturday and seen witch crutches after the game, but the team didn't get specific when describing the fullback's injury, leaving him without a return timetable at this point.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/25/16DBEli AppleKneePROBABLEApple (knee) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason date with the Jets, Art Stapleton of USA Today Sports Network reports.

    Apple returned to the practice field seven days ago and has held his own. The rookie injured his left knee during the team's first preseason affair and has been nursing it every since. With the regular season right around the corner, the Giants are eager to get Apple as much in-game experience as possible before throwing him into the gauntlet.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    08/24/16WRBen EdwardsKneeQUESTIONABLEEdwards (knee) was waived-injured Wednesday after being diagnosed with a torn ACL over the weekend, Jordan Raanan of NJ Advance Media reports.

    The former Richmond Spider spent most of the 2015 season on the practice squad and was active for the final two seasons of the campaign. He was carted off the field for precautionary reasons during a minicamp practice in April and he ultimately tore his ACL during rookie minicamp over the weekend. Edwards was waived in order to clear room on the 90-man roster for a tryout player.

    (Updated 05/11/2016)
    08/23/16DBDarian ThompsonShoulderQUESTIONABLEThompson (shoulder) is on track to play in the Giants' Week 1 matchup against the Cowboys. "He will be ready...by him being young, I truly believe that he will be ready to go," said said defensive backs coach Davit Merritt on Thursday.

    Although Thompson will sit out of the Giants' third preseason game this weekend, the coaching staff has little doubt that the rookie safety will be ready once the season gets underway. Thompson, a third round selection out of Boise State, suffered a bruised shoulder in the Giants' last preseason game that has him officially listed as week-to-week. Provided that Thompson can remain on track with his recovery, he could start at free safety when the Giants open their season against their division rivals.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    08/20/16WRDwayne HarrisKneePROBABLEHarris (knee) left Saturday's preseason game early, The team's official site reports.

    Harris left the matchup with the Bills to get some x-rays of his knee. The 28-year-old hauled in career-highs of 36 receptions, 396 yards and four touchdowns in his first season with the Giants. Although it remains to be seen exactly how long Harris will be out, a serious knee injury would be a big blow to his plans of obtaining an expanded role with the offense in 2016.

    (Updated 08/20/2016)
    08/20/16DBMykkele ThompsonConcussionPROBABLEThompson (head) was diagnosed with a concussion after leaving Saturday's preseason game early and will have to abide by the league's concussion protocol moving forward.

    The Italian native has been relentless in his pursuit of securing a roster spot. However, unfortunately for Thompson, a long history of ailments combined with the uncertainty of his concussion could all but keep him off the 53-man roster. For now, Bennett Jackson and Justin Currie are likely to fill in during his absence.

    (Updated 08/20/2016)
    08/17/16KJosh BrownSuspensionSUSPENDWhile Brown has been suspended only one game, the the Daily News reported his ex-wife told police he had been violent with her more than 20 times.

    While this report only addresses her statement to the police and does not tell his side of the story, that it came after his suspension opens a new can of worms for him and the Giants. Even though the charges were dismissed, the report is not a good look for Brown or the Giants, and you have to wonder whether they'll decide to take further action internally or even release him. They signed Brown to a two-year, $4 million in April after knowing about his arrest, but perhaps they didn't know about his wife's more detailed report to the police. Given how fungible kickers are in fantasy, and that Brown's already out one game, we'd recommend looking elsewhere at the position.

    (Updated 08/19/2016)
    08/17/16WRVictor CruzGroinQUESTIONABLECruz (groin) played 29 snaps and had one catch on two targets against the Jets Saturday. He was open deep on one play, but Eli Manning underthrew him.

    Cruz emerged unscathed from the contest and now has a chance to stick as the team's No. 2 or No. 3 option. That said, it's still unclear if he can handle daily practices and taking hits on a regular basis. But Saturday's showing was encouraging, and Cruz is still in the mix for the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver job.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/16/16DLKerry WynnUndisclosedPROBABLEWynn was held out of practice and worked on the sideline with the training staff for undisclosed reasons, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

    Though Wynn was held out of drills, his presence on the sideline with the Giants' trainers likely means that whatever injury is keeping him out likely isn't very serious and he'll likely be back to practice in the coming days.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    08/13/16WRGeremy DavisHamstringPROBABLEDavis (hamstring) worked on the side of practice with the Giants' training staff, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

    Davis didn't practice on Sunday after injuring his hamstring during Friday's game against the Dolphins. Though he didn't practice in full, his work on the sidelines is an encouraging sign and he shouldn't be expected to miss much, if any, more time going forward.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    08/13/16RBWill JohnsonNeckPROBABLEJohnson (neck) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets.

    Also absent is Matt LaCosse (knee), who has been battling Johnson, among others, for the No. 3 tight end role. Jerell Adams and Ryan Malleck figure to handle most of the second-team work in Saturday's game.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/02/16DLDamon HarrisonKneePROBABLEHarrison (knee) was removed from the PUP list Tuesday, The Record's Art Stapleton reports.

    Harrison missed the first few days of training camp due to some minor swelling in his knee. Despite signing a five-year, $46.5 million contract in the offseason, the run-stuffing nose tackle is highly unlikely to have any IDP value. He should, however, provide a much-needed boost to his new team's run defense.

    (Updated 08/02/2016)
    05/23/16DBCooper TaylorGroinQUESTIONABLETaylor has underwent sports hernia surgery and will be sidelined until training camp, NJ.com reports.

    Taylor was working with the Giants' first-team defense at free safety earlier this spring, but will now be sidelined after his latest surgery. Typically, sports hernia surgery requires four-to-six weeks of recovery time, and the Giants open training camp in five weeks. That puts Taylor on the fringe of being ready once camp starts, but until then, teammates Nat Berhe, Bennett Jackson and rookie third-rounder Darian Thompson figure to benefit from extra practice reps.

    (Updated 05/23/2016)
    04/08/16DBBennett JacksonKneeQUESTIONABLEThe Giants placed offensive lineman Will Beatty (pectoral) on the PUP list Tuesday, which means he will miss at the least the first six weeks of the 2015 season.
    04/08/16LBDevon KennardHamstringPROBABLEKennard (hamstring) was placed on IR to make roster room for Odell Beckham (suspension.)

    Kennard should return as the team's strong side linebacker in 2016.

    08/21/16TEEric EbronAnkleQUESTIONABLEEbron (ankle) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Ebron practiced Tuesday for the first time since early August, but he was then held out both Wednesday and Thursday. It's unclear if he suffered a setback, but if so, his Week 1 status may now be in danger. The 23-year-old tight end hasn't played in any preseason games and probably won't be ready for Thursday's exhibition finale against the Bills.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/17/16TEAndrew QuarlessSuspensionSUSPENDQuarless (suspension) signed a deal with the Lions on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    With tight ends Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew both recovering from injuries, the Lions are facing serious depth issues at tight end for this coming season. And while Quarless will still be suspended for the first two games of the regular season, he had a solid stint with the Packers and would be a formidable option for the team should neither Ebron nor Pettigrew be ready by Week 3. He is eligible to start practicing with the team immediately.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    08/16/16LBDeAndre LevyUndisclosedQUESTIONABLELevy (undisclosed) was removed from the Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday morning, ESPN.com reports.

    While technically now available to practice, Levy won't necessarily do so Tuesday. He did suggest that he hopes to play in at least one preseason game, but the real goal will be to have him ready for Week 1. Even after missing all of last season with a hip injury and the first three weeks of training camp with an undisclosed issue, Levy possesses an IDP ceiling that's among the best in the league. Few linebackers possess a similar combination of run-stopping and coverage skills.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    08/16/16TEMatthew MulliganUndisclosedPROBABLEMulligan (undisclosed) did not practice Tuesday, MLive.com's Kyle Meinke reports.

    The nature of his injury is unknown, but he is not expected to be dealing with anything long-term. Mulligan had been serving as Detroit's primary blocking tight end while Brandon Pettigrew (knee) resided on the PUP list to begin training camp, and was tabbed as the team's No. 2 tight end behind Eric Ebron (leg) on the first unofficial depth chart of the preseason. Now, with Ebron currently sidelined as well, the Lions will be without their top-three overall tight ends for foreseeable future.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    07/30/16RBGeorge WinnFootQUESTIONABLEWinn -- who had been an exclusive rights free agent -- has signed his contract tender with the Lions, the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick continue to slot in as as the Lions' top two running backs, while Winn (who recorded just four carries for one yard in seven 2015 appearances for Detroit) and Zach Zenner will jostle for depth slotting in the team's backfield along with free agent acquisition Stevan Ridley.

    (Updated 04/10/2016)
    07/29/16TEOrson CharlesSuspensionSUSPENDThe NFL suspended Saints tight end Orson Charles for the first game of the season, reports the NFL Network. The suspension was for violating the league's Personal Conduct Policy.
    07/28/16RBAmeer AbdullahShoulderPROBABLEAbdullah (shoulder) gained 16 yards on four carries and failed to haul in his lone target in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens.

    As expected, Abdullah started but played limited snaps in his first game action since last season, getting all of his touches during the first quarter. He did appear to have a 15-yard touchdown scamper on the first play of the second quarter, but it was called back due to a teammate's holding penalty. In addition to starting on offense, Abdullah may get some opportunities in the return game, though his role as the lead back could limit his special teams contributions to crucial situations. He resumed contact work in practice last week, and there's been no suggestion of any setback with his shoulder.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    05/26/16DLCaraun ReidAnkleDOUBTFULLions defensive tackle Caraun Reid (ankle) practiced for the first time since Aug. 20, Josh Katzenstein of The Detroit News reports.
    04/13/16DBGlover QuinAnklePROBABLEQuin (ankle) practiced in near-full capacity during the first day of minicamp, the Lions' official site reports.

    Quin had been taking it easy since undergoing offseason ankle surgery, but participated in near-full capacity during Tuesday's session. For reference, Quin never participated in any team drills during OTAs. However, now in minicamp, he lined up as the starting free safety during team drills, admittedly only for a portion of the snaps, though. It appears Quin has been setback-free in his recovery, and will continue to amp up his workload in practice as the offseason wears on.
