Larry Donnell isn't expected to play Sunday at Washington, after the New York 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.
Larry 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 New York 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.
Larry 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 New York Giants will be glad to have their top tight end healthy.
Larry Donnell (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
With Donnell missing a second straight game, the New York 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.
Larry 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 New York 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.
