Giants' Orleans Darkwa: At least one month remains in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darkwa was off crutches Tuesday and has 4-to-6 weeks remaining in his recovery from December surgery on his tibia, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

When both Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen required respites early in the season, Darkwa earned the first two starts of his career, but two residual effects were discomfort in his lower leg and no offensive touches after Week 5. Eventually landing on injured reserve between Weeks 12 and 13, Darkwa's subsequent procedure included insertion of a plate on his tibia, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com. Assuming he completes his rehab within the aforementioned time span, Darkwa will be healthy long before the offseason program kicks off in April.

Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Giants placed Darkwa (lower leg) on injured reserve Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Darkwa has been plagued by discomfort in his lower leg since earning his second start of the season (and career) on Oct. 9 in Green Bay. In fact, he's been contained exclusively to special teams over the last four games. Perhaps knowing something the general public does not, the Giants may be closing in on opening Shane Vereen's (triceps) window for a return, which could occur as early as Wednesday. In any case, Darkwa ends the season with 31 carries for 147 yards and one touchdown, while hauling in eight of 13 passes for 75 yards.

Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Suiting up for Giants Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darkwa (lower leg) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Browns.

A limited practice Thursday gave Darkwa a "questionable" designation, but the reserve back will suit up Sunday to resume his regular role on special teams. With Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins in line to lead the New York backfield, don't look for much of a fantasy impact from Darkwa, who hasn't seen an offensive snap since Week 5.

Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darkwa (lower leg) is active for Sunday's tilt with the Bears.

The reserve back will give it a go Sunday after not practicing earlier in the week. Darkwa has only played on special teams for the past three games, so it seems he'll bring little fantasy value to the table this week.

Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Questionable for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Darkwa (lower leg) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Bears.

Darkwa was likely testing out his lower leg when he logged a limited practice Wednesday, but his absence from the final two sessions of the week is worrisome for the reserve running back. No matter; he hasn't received a touch on offense since Week 5, so his fantasy stock won't take a hit if he takes a seat this weekend.
