Andre Williams, Rashad Jennings split workload Week 17
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Giants running backs Andre Williams and Rashad Jennings combined for 31 touches in the Week 17 loss to the Eagles.

Williams, a rookie, ran 15 times for 43 yards and a touchdown, his seventh this year. He caught all three of his targets for 19 yards. Jennings, returning from an ankle injury, rushed 10 times for 29 yards and caught three of five targets for 21 yards. 

The duo should enter 2015 in a backfield timeshare.

Giants RBs Rashad Jennings, Andre Williams active vs. Eagles
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Giants running backs Rashad Jennings (ankle) and Andre Williams (shoulder) are active for Sunday's game against the Eagles after being listed on the injury report. Jennings has not been a factor since Week 13, while the rookie Williams has rushed for more than 100 yards in two of the past three weeks.

They'll likely share the load against Philly.

Giants release final injury report for Week 17 against the Eagles
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Giants running back Andre Williams is dealing with a shoulder injury and listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Williams was limited in practice all week after rushing 26 times for 110 yards in Week 16 against the Rams.

The other running back in New York of interest, Rashad Jennings, was limited in practice all week with an ankle injury and is listed as probable.

Jennings missed Week 16 with the injury. 

Linebacker Devon Kennard (toe) will be out after missing practice all week and linebackers Paul Hazel (hamstring) and Jameel McClain (knee) are both probable.

The Giants are currently 2 1/2-point favorites against Philadelphia for Sunday's game.

Giants RB Rashad Jennings returns to practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Giants running back Rashad Jennings, who sat out Week 16 with an ankle injury, returned to practice Wednesday ahead of the season finale against the Eagles. Jennings has been a non-factor since Week 13 when he ran for 91 yards and two touchdowns against Jacksonville.

If Jennings can play, he'll mix in with rookie Andre Williams. The Giants are 3-point home favorites Sunday.

Andre Williams showing more ability
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Carrying the load for the third straight game with Rashad Jennings sidelined by an ankle injury Week 16 at St. Louis, Giants rookie running back Andre Williams delivered his second 100-yard effort during that stretch, picking up 110 yards on 26 carries. Of course, just like in Week 14, it wasn't the steadiest performance. He had a 50-yard run in that one en route to a career-best 131 yards. He had a 45-yard run en route to his 110 yards in this one.

But that's true for most 100-yard rushing performances. The best backs break long runs occasionally, which makes up for all the 2- and 3-yard gains in between. It's easy to discount Williams' performance because of a long run here or a long run there because he's been so bad on a per-carry basis this season (take that 45-yard run away, and he averaged only 2.6 yards per carry -- oh noes!), but the fact is those long runs count, too. And he barreled over a couple of tacklers to complete it, which was nice to see.

Because Williams is short on receiving ability, his numbers don't look so great when he doesn't break a long run, but with all the carries he's getting now, his chances are better than not of breaking one. He's worth starting in standard leagues Week 17 against Philadelphia.
