Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Slowed by leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Darkwa is expected to be held out of action for about a month due to a small fracture in his tibia, NJ.com reports.

The injury is considered minor, with the Giants simply playing it safe with the running back at this stage of the offseason. Once he returns to practice, Darkwa figures to compete for depth snaps (along with recently signed Bobby Rainey) in a crowded Giants backfield that also rosters Rashad Jennings, Andre Williams and Shane Vereen.

Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Remains a Giant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orleans Darkwa has signed his exclusive-rights tender from the New York Giants , Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Effectively, Darkwa remains a part of a crowded rushing attack that broke the goal line a grand total of five times last season, good for second-to-last in the league. Belonging to a club that may possibly own the worst pair of starting tackles, and that also added RB Bobby Rainey to a depth chart already rostered by Rashad Jennings, Andre Williams, and Shane Vereen, Darkwa retains his fantasy irrelevance.

Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Questionable with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orleans Darkwa (illness) was added to the injury report as questionable for Sunday's game against Carolina, Bergen Record writer Art Stapleton reports.

If Darkwa is limited or unavailable for Sunday, it would leave more work for Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen and Andre Williams in the undesirable matchup. Darkwa played six offensive snaps against Miami last week.

Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Leads Giants in rushing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orleans Darkwa rushed eight times for 23 yards, both of which led the team, during Sunday's loss to the Jets. He also caught one of two targets for 10 receiving yards.

Darkwa has rushed for 23 yards in back-to-back games, and with the New York Giants continuing to spread the carries around -- Andre Williams rushed six times for 22 yards, Rashad Jennings five times for 14 yards and Shane Vereen four times for 13 yards -- Darkwa has little fantasy upside.

Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Runs for 23 yards against Buccaneers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orleans Darkwa carried the ball six times for 23 yards in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.

Back in Week 7, Darkwa turned some heads with a 48-yard performance that included a touchdown. In his two games since he has tallied just 46 combined yards. Darkwa's role on the team appears to be competing with Andre Williams behind Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen. With a stable that large, it's difficult to trust any New York Giants back to be the horse that can carry your team from week to week.
