Position Listing
Ryan Murphy
News
The Seahawks have six of their eight draft picks under contract.

Picks that have signed are:

Fourth-round guard Terry Poole, fourth-round guard Mark Glowinski, sixth-round defensive end Obum Gwacham, fifth-round cornerback Tye Smith, sixth-round center Kristjan Sokoli and seventh-round safety Ryan Murphy.

The only picks yet to sign with the team are second-round defensive end Frank Clark and third-round receiver Tyler Lockett.

Rashad Jennings
News
Jennings was released by the Giants on Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Jennings had a disappointing season in 2016. He entered the season as the Giants' top running back but produced just 794 total yards while having the lowest yards per catch of his career and the lowest yards per carry average since joining the Giants in 2014. His release gives the Giants an extra $2.5 million in cap space and leaves Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen as the team's top running backs. Jennings is now free to sign with any team.

Michael Hunter
No Updates
Kerry Wynn
News
Wynn (concussion) was free from Wednesday's injury report.

Wynn missed the previous two games due to a concussion. His absence from Wednesday's injury report seemingly indicates he has passed the team's concussion protocol, however their has been no official word. The 25-year-old does appear on track for a return in Week 11 though.

Matt LaCosse
News
Lacosse (knee) resigned with the Giants on Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Lacosse missed the entirety of last season with a torn ACL and only played in two games during his 2015 rookie season, so he has much to prove before becoming a factor in the Giants offense.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Paul Perkins
News
Perkins is poised for a larger workload during the 2017 season following the release of Rashad Jennings on Monday, NJ.com reports.

Perkins bided his time as a rookie behind Jennings and Shane Vereen, earning his first touches in Week 4 and reaching the Giants' Week 8 bye with just eight rushes and six receptions to his name. Once November rolled around, though, he was allotted double-digit carries in six of 10 games (including playoffs), the final two of which he acted as the starting running back. Moving forward, Perkins won't be shackled by the presence of Jennings, but pass-catching back Shane Vereen is still in the picture, assuming he recovers fully from surgery on his triceps and isn't a cap casualty in the coming months.

J.T. Thomas
News
Thomas was placed on injured reserve with torn ligaments in his knee.

Thomas was largely a special teams player, so his absence won't have an impact on the defense.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Nikita Whitlock
News
Whitlock (foot) has been suspended 10 games for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances.

Currently on injured reserve due to a mid-foot sprain, the fullback will serve the suspension whenever he receives a clean bill of health.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended for 10 games
Damon Harrison
News
Harrison had four solo tackles and one assist Sunday against the Packers.

Harrison proved to be a rock in the middle of the Giants defensive line and a nice source of tackles as an IDP. He had only 2.5 sacks, but 86 total tackles on the regular season.

Eli Apple
News
Apple had four solo tackles against the Packers Sunday.

Overall, it was a strong rookie season for Apple, and he should see even more snaps in 2017 playing opposite Janoris Jenkins with Rodgers-Cromartie guarding the slot.

Will Tye
News
Tye re-signed with the Giants on Tuesday on a one-year, $615,000 contract, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

Tye, the Giants' starting tight end a season ago, was one of three exclusive rights free agents that the team re-signed. The 25-year-old hauled in 48 passes for 395 yards and a touchdown last season and barring any offseason additions at the position, Tye looks positioned to open 2017 as a starter. The Giants reportedly have no intention of re-signing former starter Larry Donnell, who is an unrestricted free agent.

Martin Wallace
News
The Browns claimed two more players off waivers, wideout LaRon Byrd from the Cowboys and offensive lineman Caylin Hauptmann from the Seahawks. In addition, Cleveland waived offensive linemen Karim Barton and Martin Wallace and wideout Charles Johnson.
Orleans Darkwa
News
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.

Injury
Lower Leg - Questionable for the start of training camp
Owa Odighizuwa
News
Odighizuwa (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's wild-card game against the Packers.

Odighizuwa's absence won't have too big of an impact on the Giants' defense, with Olivier Vernon and Kerry Wynn starting at defensive end.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
Larry Donnell
News
Donnell will not be re-signed by the Giants this offseason, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports.

Donnell has spent all four of his professional seasons with the Giants, but he's failed to build on his faux-breakout 2014 campaign that included 63 catches for 623 yards and six touchdowns. In fact, besides that season, the 28-year-old boasts just 47 catches for 346 yards and three scores in his career. While missing 10 games over the past two seasons has contributed toward that decline in production, Donnell is nonetheless now slated to resume his career elsewhere in 2017.

Victor Cruz
News
Cruz made a free-agent visit to the Panthers on Monday, the Black and Blue Review reports.

Cruz's meeting with the Panthers comes after he was released by the Giants last week. While Cruz left Carolina without signing a contract, which he's free to do at any time this offseason, his history with Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman could bode in the team's favor. Gettleman was a member of the Giants front office when the club signed Cruz as an undrafted free agent in 2010. Although injuries have largely contributed toward Cruz's recent decline, the 30-year-old could add needed experience to Carolina's receiving corps, which lacked an impactful slot option this past season.

Janoris Jenkins
News
Jenkins had only one assist against the Packers Sunday.

Jenkins wraps up a strong 2016 season after proving to be one of the top cover corners in the league. The Giants payed a heavy price for him in free agency, but so far he's been well worth it.

John Jerry
News
Giants left tackle Ereck Flowers, who hurt his ankle Sunday against the Cowboys, was able to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday. Although, his availability for Week 2 against the Falcons is still to be determined.

"It was just like any other injury," Flowers said, per NJ.com. "You've got to play through it and get through it.

"I guess we'll see. In my head, I'm looking to play."

With Will Beatty on the PUP list, John Jerry would likely be tasked with protecting quarterback Eli Manning's blindside Sunday, if Flowers can't play.

Jordan Williams
No Updates
Odell Beckham
News
Beckham hauled in just four of 11 targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 38-13 wild-card loss to the Packers.

Beckham started off the game with an 11-yard reception on his first target, but had a difficult time coming down with the ball thereafter, including on a possible touchdown reception in the first half. The Packers certainly did their part to make life difficult on the talented receiver as well, often bracketing him with double coverage. The end result was a frustrating afternoon for Beckham, despite the fact that he was the only Giants player with double-digits targets. Even though he produced a relatively modest four 100-yard outings in 2016, Beckham wraps up his third Giants campaign with a new career high in receptions (101), although his 10 touchdowns, while certainly impressive, were the least he's tallied in any of his three pro seasons.

Coty Sensabaugh
News
Sensabaugh (anke) was inactive for the Giants' season finale Sunday versus the Redskins.

Sensabaugh appears to have gotten hurt during Friday's practice. The details surrounding his situation aren't clear and he isn't certain to be ready in time for the Giants' first taste of postseason action next weekend.

Darian Thompson
News
Thompson will undergo surgery on his foot and is set to be placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

The 23-year-old rookie was expected to be a significant contributor for the Giants this season, after earning the team's starting free safety job during camp this summer. However, after playing in just a pair of games, Thompson suffered a foot injury and has been unable to get on the field since. He's opted to undergo surgery on his foot, so he'll finish his first NFL campaign with seven tackles. Nat Berhe will likely start next to Landon Collins at the two safety spots, although the Giants could very well add some additional depth from the free agent pool.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jason Pierre-Paul
News
Pierre-Paul and the Giants are expected to pick up talks over a contract extension in the near future, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports.

Pierre-Paul is currently slated to hit free agency next month, but in releasing wide receiver Victor Cruz and running back Rashad Jennings on Monday, the Giants freed salary-cap room to ensure they're equipped to meet JPP's desires and keep him off the open market. With that end in mind, the team is anticipated to escalate talks with Pierre-Paul in the coming days and weeks, with a $12 million-per-year contract reportedly a realistic figure for striking a deal. After playing just eight games in 2015 following a notorious fireworks accident, Pierre-Paul registered 53 tackles and seven sacks while defending eight passes in 12 appearances this past season.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brett Jones
News
Jones (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Jones has been out since Week 10 with a calf strain, but was able to practice in a limited fashion this week. He will serve as a depth option along the Giants' offensive line.

Robbie Gould
News
Gould made both of his short field-goal attempts in Sunday's wild card loss to the Packers.

Gould took over early in the year for Josh Brown who was released and hit all 10 of his regular-season field-goal attempts and both of his ones in the postseason. He did miss three PATs, however, and none of his field goals were from beyond 50 yards. It's unclear yet whether the Giants will bring him back for 2017.

Johnathan Hankins
News
Hankins had two solo tackles, one assist and a sack against the Packers Sunday.

Overshadowed by his more famous linemates, Hankins is a solid run stuffer in his own right and managed three sacks as an interior lineman.

Khaled Holmes
News
The Colts are trying offensive linemen at different positions in the team's offseason workouts. 

Part of the reason for the shuffling is that a pair of linemen, right tackle Gosder Cherilus and right guard Donald Thomas, aren't taking part in OTAs.

Left guard Jack Mewhort filled in at right tackle and newly acquired Todd Herremans was at right guard. 

At center, Jonotthan Harrison appears to have the early edge over Khaled Holmes

"We've got some guys that we're moving around," coach Chuck Pagano said, per ESPN. "Come training camp, still going to be some competition."

Roger Lewis
News
Lewis will have a chance to increase his workload in 2017 due to the release of Victor Cruz, NJ.com reports.

As an undrafted free agent, Lewis never seriously threatened the trio of Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard, and Cruz for snaps, but his ability on special teams helped him avoid the inactive list starting in Week 4 last season. Despite starting for Cruz in Week 10, Lewis never posted more than one reception in a given game, finishing the campaign with seven receptions (on 19 targets) for 97 yards and two touchdowns across 13 contests. Lewis far outpaced fellow wideout Tavarres King in terms of snaps -- 207 versus 76 -- but the latter showed late-season promise as a receiver, gathering in a 44-yard pass in Week 17 before notching the Giants' only touchdown during their wild-card defeat in Green Bay. As a result, King may have a leg up this offseason, but Lewis will nonetheless compete for the third receiver job behind Beckham and Shepard.

Andrew Adams
News
Adams (undisclosed) is absent from the Giants inactive list for Monday's game versus the Bengals.

Adams was questionable for the contest with an undisclosed ailment. However, he will play and presumably handle his usual workload providing depth in the Giants' secondary.

Ishaq Williams
News
Williams was promoted from the Giants' practice squad to their active roster Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Assuming he plays, the rookie will make his career debut in Sunday's game against the Eagles. Williams came into the league as a linebacker, but he will be playing defensive end for the foreseeable future. He figures to help provide depth at the position.

Ereck Flowers
News
Giants rookie offensive tackle Ereck Flowers has been ruled out for the rest of the game Sunday against Atlanta with a sprained ankle, per The Record.
Brad Wing
News
Wing has signed a contract extension with the Giants through the 2019 season.

Wing was acquired from the Steelers last year, when he finished 2015 with a 44.5-yard punt average. The Australian also pinned 33 of his 76 punts inside the 20-yard line. According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Wing's three-year extension is worth $6.45 million.

Robert Thomas
News
Thomas signed a one-year contract with the Giants on Tuesday, James Kratch of the New Jersey Advanced Media reports.

Thomas played in just eight games in 2016, seeing the field for 68 snaps. He recorded five tackles, including a sack, while flashing some decent pass rush potential. He'll have a chance to compete for a larger role with the team in 2017.

Eli Manning
News
Manning completed 23 of 44 passes for 299 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 38-13 wild-card loss to the Packers. He also gained 11 yards on his sole rush and lost a fumble.

Manning was victimized by multiple drops on the part of his receivers throughout the game, but he still turned in a serviceable stat line. He started off the game hot, completing seven of his first 10 throws, and also fired a 41-yard scoring dart to rookie speedster Tavarres King in the third quarter to bring New York to within 14-13 at the time. However, a Giants defense that appeared to have Aaron Rodgers' number for the majority of the first half seemed to deflate after another successful Rodgers' Hail Mary just before intermission, and the game got progressively away from them in the second half. Manning's 13th season thus ends in disappointing fashion, but he did manage to throw for 4,000 yards for the third straight campaign, although his 86.0 QBR was notably his lowest in the last three seasons.

Adam Gettis
News
Gettis was released by the Giants on Saturday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

The Giants needed to make room for running back Shane Vereen (triceps) to return from IR, so Gettis' roster spot was given up.

Uani' Unga
News
'Unga (undisclosed) was waived with an injury designation Wednesday, NJ.com reports.

'Unga, a one-time starter for the Giants back in 2015, spent the entire season on injured reserve with an unknown injury. He'll need to get healthy in order to land another contract.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ryan Nassib
News
Nassib will have surgery on his elbow in the near future, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

Nassib contended with elbow soreness at various points in the season, and with two games remaining, the Giants will look toward to future and a likely playoff berth. No matter if that goal is realized, Nassib will yield backup QB duties to Josh Johnson moving forward.

Injury
Elbow - Questionable for the start of training camp
Dwayne Harris
News
Harris (ankle) is listed as active Sunday versus the Cowboys.

After suffering an ankle injury last Sunday in Pittsburgh, Harris followed a DNP/limited/limited practice regimen in preparation for Week 14. With only one catch on the season, though, his viability is completely tied to his ability as a returner.

Daryl Virgies
No Updates
Stansly Maponga
News
The following players were ruled inactive for the Falcons in Week 17 against Carolina: cornerback Ricardo Allen, safety Charles Godfrey, running back Steven Jackson, defensive end Stansly Maponga, quarterback Sean Renfree, tackle Jonathan Scott and linebacker Tyler Starr.

Jackson entered this week as questionable after suffering a quadriceps injury against New Orleans in Week 16. Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman will share the load. Jackson could return to action in the postseason, if Atlanta defeat Carolina on Sunday.

Deontae Skinner
News
Skinner was signed by the Giants on Saturday, Art Stapleton of the Record reports.

Skinner figures to primarily spend his time on the special teams unit, but will also be a depth option at linebacker for the Giants.

Weston Richburg
News
As a rookie, Giants lineman Weston Richburg was moved from his natural position at center to play left guard for 15 games. Now, after New York released incumbent starter J.D. Walton, Richburg is happy to be home in the middle, per NFL.com. 

"I am in control of things," Richburg said of the center position. 

Richburg will be anchoring a Giants line that is in flux, with five new players at the five line positions. The 6-foot-3, 296-pound Richburg started 45 games at center while at Colorado State, but spent his rookie season learing on the fly at left guard. 

"Compared to last year, I feel very comfortable where I am at," he said. "After doing that last year, I think it is easy to come inside and make that transition. There are still some things you have to get used to, but I did those things in college. It’ll be an adjustment, but not as much as it was going to guard."

Bobby Hart
News
The Giants have announced the signings of fifth-round pick and safety Mykkele Thompson and seventh-round guard Bobby Hart, per NJ.com. They are their first draftees of the six to sign.

Thompson is expected to compete for playing time at free safety. He started 31 games at Texas and recorded 213 tackles and a pair of interceptions.

Hart will attempt to make the transition from tackle, where he started every game for Florida State over the last two seasons and earned All-ACC honors both years.

Darius Powe
No Updates
Jay Bromley
News
Bromley (ankle) was activated from the PUP list on Sunday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Bromley underwent ankle surgery to help alleviate pain from bone spurs in his foot, but is now back to full strength. Look for Bromley to return to the practice field early this week, where he'll have to fight for a final roster spot, as he currently projects to be just a deep reserve on the Giants' defensive line.

George Winn
News
Winn signed a contract with the Giants on Tuesday, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.

The Giants placed Shane Vereen (triceps) on injured reserve, so Winn will be brought onto the roster to restore some depth at the position. Winn will find himself fourth on the team's depth chart, however, so it's unlikely he'll produce much in the way of fantasy value over the final two weeks of the season.

Trevin Wade
News
The Lions announced several practice squad roster moves on Monday, according to the Detroit Free Press. The team signed the following players to the practice squad: Tight end Jordan Thompson, cornerback Trevin Wade and defensive tackle Roy Philon.
Mykkele Thompson
News
Thompson (knee) was placed on injured reserved on Tuesday.

Thompson was placed on IR after suffering an undisclosed knee injury in Sunday's win over the Saints. Thompson could be brought back after he spends six weeks on the IR, but it doesn't seem likely the Giants will use their only designated return on the rookie. The 23-year-old ends his season with one tackle as he mostly served as a reserve safety.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Nat Berhe
News
Berhe (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Berhe was limited in practice throughout the week and likely could've played Sunday if the Giants needed him. New York is locked into the five seed for the playoffs and didn't need to force Berhe back before he's completely healthy. He appears to have a good chance at returning from his five week absence in the wildcard round of the playoffs next week.

Jonathan Casillas
News
Casillas had seven solo tackles and four assists Sunday against the Packers Sunday.

Casillas had a solid season as the team's starting weak side linebacker with 96 total tackles (62 solo, 34 assists), 1.5 sacks and eight passes defensed.

Curtis Grant
No Updates
Keenan Robinson
News
Robinson (shoulder) will play Sunday against the Lions.

After missing the entire week of practice, Robinson will suit up Sunday. He could see his reps monitored because of the injury, in which case Mark Herzlich could have an expanded role on defense.

Sterling Shepard
News
Shepard secured four of nine targets for 63 yards in Sunday's 38-13 wild-card loss to the Packers.

The rookie got off to a strong start with receptions of 26 and 13 yards on the Giants' second possession, but he managed to haul in just two of his subsequent seven targets. Shepard was also guilty of some drops, which was one of the recurring themes in the wild-card loss. Despite the disappointing finish to the season, Shepard wrapped up his impressive rookie regular-season campaign with 65 receptions for 683 yards and eight touchdowns, and proved to be one of Eli Manning's must trusted red-zone options.

Landon Collins
News
Collins had six solo tackles, three assists, a sack and two passes defensed Sunday against the Packers.

He finished the regular season with a whopping 100 solo tackles and 25 assists, four sacks, five interceptions and a touchdown, making him easily the top IDP defensive back and a centerpiece of the Giants defense for 2017.

Shane Vereen
News
Vereen will undergo surgery on his triceps injury, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

After supposedly completing his rehab from an injured triceps, Vereen returned from a nine-game absence in Week 14, only to aggravate the concern in just his second outing back in the fold. He'll thus end his second campaign with the Giants with 33 carries for 158 yards and one touchdown, which was accompanied by a typical 11 receptions (on 19 targets) for 94 yards across five appearances.

Injury
Triceps - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kevin Norwood
News
Norwood was signed to a reserve/future contract by the Giants, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

Norwood has spent the past couple months as a member of the Giants' practice squad, and he'll have an opportunity to make the team's active roster throughout the upcoming offseason. After being drafted by the Seahawks in 2014, Norwood has recorded just nine receptions for 102 yards on 11 targets in regular season action since.

Josh Johnson
News
Johnson will serve as the backup to starter Eli Manning on Sunday against the Eagles, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.TV reports.

Johnson will move up the depth chart in the absence of Ryan Nassib, who is inactive Sunday due to elbow soreness. The 30-year-old has yet to take a snap this season, and hasn't completed a pass in the NFL since the 2011 season with Tampa Bay.

Mark Herzlich
News
Herzlich (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Cowboys.

Herzlich will miss his second consecutive game due to the concussion, so Keenan Robinson figures to see additional playing time at outside linebacker.

Olivier Vernon
News
Vernon had two solo tackles, two assists and a half sack Sunday against the Lions.

The Giants defensive line took a hit with the loss of Jason Pierre-Paul, but Vernon is still a solid IDP option.

Bobby Rainey
News
Rainey caught a 13-yard pass off of two targets in Thursday's loss to Philadelphia.

The catch was just Rainey's third touch since New York's Week 8 bye. Thursday was the veteran's first game with double-digit offensive snaps since the bye as he has settled into more of a special-teams role after looking like a potential scatback earlier in the year.

Michael Bowie
News
Browns offensive lineman Michael Bowie is not required to report to training camp until the end of July. But never mind that - he's heading out after the last Independence Day firework explodes in the sky.

Bowie is itching to get started. He missed all of last season due to a shoulder injury after starting for Seattle on its Super Bowl title team in 2013. He is seeking to stay in tip-top shape in an attempt to land a starting spot on a Cleveland line that is the strength of the team.

"It's up to them to decide who is the best five," Bowie told the team website. "All I can do is take care of my business. Hopefully I can get a shot. That's what I'm working for."

Bowie participated fully in the offseason program, working mostly with the second team at right tackle. That will likely be the spot at which he competes for a starting job. Incumbent Mitchell Schwartz has not performed particularly well there and Mike Pettine has vowed there will be competition all over the field in camp.

Marshall Newhouse
News
The Giants have completely remodeled their offensive line unit for the start of organized team activities.

Compared to last year's o-line, only two players are back but even those guys have switched positions and shifted along the line. Justin Pugh has gone from right tackle to left guard and Weston Richburg shifted from left guard to center.

Will Beatty, who was a mainstay at left tackle last season, will miss five to six months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle. Beatty's injury has paved the way for rookie Ereck Flowers to step in at the left tackle position.

Quaterback Eli Manning is still adjusting to all the moving pieces in front of him.

"Obviously, having a new center can be an adjustment," Manning said. "But (Weston) Richburg was here last year and I got snaps with him last year, so that hasn't been a big deal. Anytime you have a rookie at left tackle, it can be an adjustment."

Geoff Schwartz and John Jerry are splitting time at right guard, while Marshall Newhouse has been taking the snaps at right tackle.

Will Beatty
News
Beatty (coach's decision) is inactive for the Giants' Week 2 tilt against the Saints.

The veteran lineman is healthy and simply appears to be a healthy scratch.

Will Johnson
News
Johnson (neck) is back in the weight room and nearing a full recovery, 247Sports.com reports.

After signing a two-year deal with the Giants last summer, Johnson landed on injured reserve before the 2016 season started due to a neck injury. He's now back in the weight room and appears fully recovered, as evidenced by Johnson's Instagram video from Thursday of himself deadlifting 300 pounds three times in a row. Given his progress to date, the West Virginia product should be good to go for OTAs come April.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Romeo Okwara
News
Okwara is having a strong camp and is pushing for a roster spot.

The Giants have a deep stable of pass-rushing ends, but Okwara, an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame, is playing his way into the rotation.

Eric Pinkins
News
Pinkins was waived by the Seahawks on Saturday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

The three-year vet struggled to make enough noise during his tenure in Seattle. Pinkins, 25, tallied just two tackles last season.

Kelvin Sheppard
News
Sheppard has signed with the Giants, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.

The 28-year-old, who racked up 105 tackles in 16 games for the Dolphins last season, bolsters the Giants' depth at linebacker, but it remains to be seen if his role in the New York defense will allow him to approach triple-digit tackles again in 2016.

Ben Edwards
News
Edwards (knee - ACL) spent the 2016 season on injured reserve, ESPN reports.

Edwards suffered a torn ACL in May and reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers. He'll hit the open market in the offseason but will likely need to show teams he's fully recovered in order to land another contract.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Devon Kennard
News
Kennard (concussion) was not on the Giants' Wednesday injury report.

Kennard was able to play Sunday against the Ravens after heading into the weekend considered questionable. It looks like he'll be ready to play Week 7 versus the Rams.

Tavarres King
News
King will have an opportunity to fill the shoes of the recently-released Victor Cruz in 2017, NJ.com reports.

Last season, the Giants' passing attack largely revolved around Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard, Victor Cruz, and Will Tye, each of whom received at least 70 targets. Among the remaining skill position players, only running back Rashad Jennings (42) surpassed 25, while the next most utilized wideout was Roger Lewis with (19). Meanwhile, King carried just one six-yard catch into Week 17, when he doubled his reception count with a 44-yard grab. Proving it wasn't an aberration, Lewis recorded the Giants' sole touchdown in a three-catch, 73-yard performance in their wild-card loss at Green Bay. With Cruz now out of the picture, King will have every chance to lock down a regular role on the outside.

Leon Hall
News
Hall (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Hall's absence comes as a bit of a surprise given his usage as the slot corner throughout the season thus far along with his veteran experience. The Giants' defensive scheme in Week 9 figures to deploy Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple on the outside with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie covering the slot, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Jerell Adams
News
Adams (shoulder) is listed as inactive Sunday in Washington

After landing on the Giants' injury report Thursday, Adams closed out the week with back-to-back limited sessions. The preceding wasn't exactly enough to forecast inactive status in Week 17, but the offense will nonetheless roll with Will Tye as the obvious No. 1 tight end. Due to the team's liberal use of TEs, though, Larry Donnell will likely earn some snaps as well Sunday.

Keith Wenning
News
With Andy Dalton still out, Wenning continues to serve as AJ McCarron's backup as Sunday's regular season finale against the Ravens approaches.

Wenning, who was promoted to the Bengals' active roster on Dec. 16, is thus a McCarron (left wrist) injury setback away from seeing his first NFL regular season action. Whether he remains the team's backup QB once the postseason begins hinges on the status of Dalton, who is slated to have his balky right thumb examined Monday.

Jon Halapio
News
The Cardinals shuffled their roster on Friday.

The team announced it released tackle Tavon Rooks and signed guard Jon Halapio .

Halapio, a sixth-round pick a season ago, was released by the Broncos in May. Rooks was a sixth-round pick by the Saints last year and spent the entire year on their practice squad before signing with the Cardinals in January.

Justin Pugh
News
Pugh (knee) said he plans on playing Sunday against the Lions, Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News reports.

Pugh said he feels 100% heading into Week 15 after missing the last five games due to a knee sprain. Look for more updates to come once the practice reports are released this week.

Aldrick Rosas
News
Rosas signed a reserve/future contract with the Giants on Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Rosas had a tryout with the Giants in November but didn't end up making the team. With the team's current kicker, Robbie Gould, set to be a free agent this offseason, Rosas will have a chance to be the Giants' starting kicker in 2017.

Zak DeOssie
News
DeOssie signed a two-year extension with the Giants on Friday, James Kratch of NJ.com reports.

The long snapper, now 33, has spent his entire career with the Giants and is now one of two remaining players, along with Eli Manning, from both Super Bowl championship teams. He played in all 16 games last season after an injury-plagued 2015 campaign.

B.J. Goodson
News
Goodson (concussion) was active for the Giants' season finale Sunday against the Redskins.

Per Art Stapleton of NJ.com, Goodson cleared concussion protocol prior to Sunday's game. However, he didn't get much playing time and ultimately failed to appear in the box score

Rahim Moore
News
Moore was found to not have a concussion after leaving Thursday's game early and being tested for one, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Moore left after taking a big hit in the third quarter, but he'll be able to practice in full and shouldn't be held back at all now that he's been found to not have a concussion. Moore had been playing with the second team defense and figures to stay in that spot going forward.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
News
Rodgers-Cromartie (thigh) is questionable to return to Sunday's wild-card playoff game against the Packers.

Rodgers-Cromartie went down on the second play from scrimmage. Trevin Wade will see additional playing time unless he returns.

Injury
Thigh - Questionable for the start of training camp
