Larry 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 New York 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.
Larry 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 New York Giants ' starting tight end.
Larry Donnell (neck) will not practice Wednesday, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.
Donnell said last week it would "be a while" before he plays again, and early indications are he will not do so this week. Will Tye is on track to be the New York Giants ' starting tight end again this week.
Larry Donnell (neck) said it will be a while before he is able to play again, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.
Although the New York 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.
Larry 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.
