Position Listing
Rashad Jennings
Jennings gained 11 yards and a touchdown on three carries in Friday's 27-10 preseason loss to the Dolphins.

The Giants' clear-cut No. 1 running back saw limited action, but managed to cap off a nine-play, 74-yard opening drive with a three-yard jaunt into the end zone. Jennings has been anointed the primary tailback heading into the season and his health and durability will be closely monitored during what will be his first season as a true bell-cow back.

Mike Rose
No Updates
Andre Williams
Williams gained 15 yards on six carries and lost a fumble in Saturday's preseason game against the Bills.

Williams is noticeably quicker after dropping 20 pounds in the offseason, and yet he may still find himself on the wrong side of final cuts. On the other hand, he also has a shot to serve as Rashad Jennings' top backup for early downs, with the potential to get some short-yardage and goal-line work even when Jennings is healthy. The Giants will ultimately have to decide between Williams' potential as a rusher and Orleans Darkwa's contribution on special teams. Williams did himself no favors Saturday, losing a fumble while producing just 2.5 yards per carry. Fifth-round rookie Paul Perkins, who is also in the mix for backup work, had just five yards on three carries.

Anthony Dable
No Updates
Greg Milhouse
No Updates
Josh Brown
While Brown has been suspended only one game, the the Daily News reported his ex-wife told police he had been violent with her more than 20 times.

While this report only addresses her statement to the police and does not tell his side of the story, that it came after his suspension opens a new can of worms for him and the Giants. Even though the charges were dismissed, the report is not a good look for Brown or the Giants, and you have to wonder whether they'll decide to take further action internally or even release him. They signed Brown to a two-year, $4 million in April after knowing about his arrest, but perhaps they didn't know about his wife's more detailed report to the police. Given how fungible kickers are in fantasy, and that Brown's already out one game, we'd recommend looking elsewhere at the position.

Suspension - Eligible to return Week 2 vs. New Orleans
Michael Hunter
No Updates
Kerry Wynn
Wynn was held out of practice and worked on the sideline with the training staff for undisclosed reasons, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

Though Wynn was held out of drills, his presence on the sideline with the Giants' trainers likely means that whatever injury is keeping him out likely isn't very serious and he'll likely be back to practice in the coming days.

Matt LaCosse
LaCosse (knee) is considered day-to-day, Art Stapleton of USA Today Sports Network reports.

LaCosse had been impressing coaches early this offseason prior to injuring his knee two weeks back. LaCosse figures to be trailing both Larry Donnell and Will Tye for the Giants' tight end opening.

Paul Perkins
Perkins gained five yards on three carries in Saturday's game against the Bills.

Perkins at least had a better night than Andre Williams, who had six carries for 15 yards and lost a fumble. The two are competing for backup slotting behind lead rusher Rashad Jennings and passing-down specialist Shane Vereen. While Williams may be released if he loses out, Perkins will likely be kept on the roster regardless, as he was selected in the fifth round of this year's draft.

J.T. Thomas
Thomas (hamstring) was activated from the team's PUP list on Tuesday, Seth Walder of New York Daily News reports.

While the injury was originally considered nothing serious, it ended up costing Thomas almost a month of action. On Tuesday, Thomas was activated from the PUP list and he'll likely be eased into practice in the coming few days. It's unclear if Thomas will take part in either of the team's final two preseason games, but he's fully expected to ready for the regular season opener. Look for Thomas to take on depth role in his second year with the Giants.

Hamstring - PUP. Probable for start of season
Leon McFadden
49ers cornerback Leon McFadden is questionable to return to Saturday's Week 16 game against the Chargers due to a head injury, the team announced. McFadden had yet to record a tackle in Saturday's game at the time of his injury.
Nikita Whitlock
The Bengals made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Among those moves was the placement of guard Trey Hopkins on the reserve/injured list with a leg issue. Rookie quarterback AJ McCarron was put on the reserve/non-football injury list with a shoulder problem.

The Bengals also cut the following offensive players: tackles Dan France and Will Svitek, wide receivers Colin Lockett and Cobi Hamilton, center Trevor Robinson and running backs James Wilder and Nikita Whitlock.

Defenders waived by the Bengals include safety Danieal Manning, cornerbacks Onterio McCalebb and Victor Hampton, tackles Devon Still and David King and ends Sam Montgomery and Dontay Moch.

Cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris will begin serving a two-game drug suspension handed dowsn by the league.

Damon Harrison
Harrison (knee) was removed from the PUP list Tuesday, The Record's Art Stapleton reports.

Harrison missed the first few days of training camp due to some minor swelling in his knee. Despite signing a five-year, $46.5 million contract in the offseason, the run-stuffing nose tackle is highly unlikely to have any IDP value. He should, however, provide a much-needed boost to his new team's run defense.

Eli Apple
Apple (knee) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason date with the Jets, Art Stapleton of USA Today Sports Network reports.

Apple returned to the practice field seven days ago and has held his own. The rookie injured his left knee during the team's first preseason affair and has been nursing it every since. With the regular season right around the corner, the Giants are eager to get Apple as much in-game experience as possible before throwing him into the gauntlet.

Will Tye
Tye caught two passes for 14 yards on three targets in Saturday's preseason game against the Bills.

While it's hard to make much of a game in which the Giants completed just eight passes, Tye did have more of an impact than Larry Donnell, who didn't even get a target. In fact, Tye was the only Giants player to catch multiple passes, with both of those coming on the opening drive. Tye seems to have an early advantage in the battle for a starting job, but it's worth noting that both players technically started Saturday's game, with the Giants opening in a two-TE formation, according to NJ.com's Dan Duggan.

Joe Powell
No Updates
Orleans Darkwa
Darkwa played just five offensive snaps in Friday's preseason opener against the Dolphins, but he's still a key contributor on special teams, ESPN.com reports.

Darkwa's role on special teams may not be enough to earn him a roster spot, as the Giants also have 2014 fourth-rounder Andre Williams and 2016 fifth-rounder Paul Perkins competing for jobs behind Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen. Teams rarely keep more than four running backs, and Williams looks like a better player after losing weight in the offseason. Of course, the roster decision may sort itself out before the season if any of the aforementioned players is injured.

Montori Hughes
The Colts parted ways with WR Duron Carter, DL Josh Chapman and DT Montori Hughes on Saturday, the team announced.
Cooper Taylor
Taylor has underwent sports hernia surgery and will be sidelined until training camp, NJ.com reports.

Taylor was working with the Giants' first-team defense at free safety earlier this spring, but will now be sidelined after his latest surgery. Typically, sports hernia surgery requires four-to-six weeks of recovery time, and the Giants open training camp in five weeks. That puts Taylor on the fringe of being ready once camp starts, but until then, teammates Nat Berhe, Bennett Jackson and rookie third-rounder Darian Thompson figure to benefit from extra practice reps.

K.J. Maye
No Updates
Owa Odighizuwa
Odighizuwa has had a strong camp and could see work both inside and out on the defensive line this year.

With Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon around Odighizuwa probably won't see a huge snap count, but he's a skilled pass rusher, and the Giants will get him on the field as an interior lineman on passing downs.

Larry Donnell
Donnell wasn't targeted in Saturday's preseason game against the Bills.

According to NJ.com's Dan Duggan, the Giants opened Saturday's game in a two-TE formation, allowing both Donnell and Will Tye to start. However, Tye went on to catch a pair of passes on the opening drive, eventually finishing the evening as Big Blue's only player with multiple receptions. Tye entered camp as a slight favorite for the starting job, and he seems to be moving closer to locking it down, though Donnell does still have time to make a push. The Giants might also end up using a rotation in the regular season.

Shane McDermott
No Updates
Victor Cruz
Head coach Ben McAdoo expects Cruz (groin) to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets. "I'm ready," Cruz added. "It feels like a long time since I've been out there. ... Now it comes to life this Saturday."

A groin injury has impacted Cruz's ability to practice and kept him sidelined during the Giants' first two preseason contests. With back-to-back full practices Tuesday and Wednesday, though, the team's training staff is likely confident that the oft-injured wideout can handle the rigors of game action for the first time since October of 2014.

Groin - Probable for start of season
Janoris Jenkins
Jenkins will sign a contract with the Giants when free agency begins Wednesday at 4:00 ET, the New York Daily News reports.

After spending his first four seasons with the Rams, Jenkins will head to New York on a multi-year deal that will average over $12 million per season. He will likely take the starting cornerback spot opposite Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie from Prince Amukamara, who was allowed to become a free agent and is now even more unlikely to return to the Giants.

John Jerry
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.

Odell Beckham
Head coach Ben McAdoo relayed Thursday that Beckham will play Saturday at Buffalo, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Beckham was unfortunately cleated by cornerback Janoris Jenkins in an early training camp practice, which sidelined him for a spell. In the interim, Beckham has slowly but surely built up his reps and even took the field in the Giants' first exhibition Friday against the Dolphins. Expect him to see a handful of series in Saturday's preseason game.

Darian Thompson
Thompson (shoulder) is on track to play in the Giants' Week 1 matchup against the Cowboys. "He will be ready...by him being young, I truly believe that he will be ready to go," said said defensive backs coach Davit Merritt on Thursday.

Although Thompson will sit out of the Giants' third preseason game this weekend, the coaching staff has little doubt that the rookie safety will be ready once the season gets underway. Thompson, a third round selection out of Boise State, suffered a bruised shoulder in the Giants' last preseason game that has him officially listed as week-to-week. Provided that Thompson can remain on track with his recovery, he could start at free safety when the Giants open their season against their division rivals.

Jason Pierre-Paul
Pierre-Paul insists there has been no special maintenance of his surgically-repaired hand at training camp this summer, ESPN reports. He has been unaffected by the contact, which included four practices in the past five days with pads. "My hand feels like my left hand," Pierre-Paul said, "just missing a couple fingers."

Pierre-Paul's having a great camp so far, and paired with free-agent signee Olivier Vernon, gives the Giants a formidable pass rush.

Brett Jones
Giants center Brett Jones has been placed on injured reserve, ending his season, reports the New York Daily News.

Jones recently suffered an MCL sprain in his knee. Jones was signed earlier this year after playing in the Canadian Football League.

Johnathan Hankins
Hankins is fully healthy as the Giants begin their offseason work this week.

Hankins was ruled out for the season after tearing his pectoral muscle in November of last year, but has since fully recovered in time for this week's offseason work. One of the league's better young interior defensive linemen, Hankins boasts 81 tackles and seven sacks in 25 games over the past two seasons, and could benefit further from playing alongside offseason signing Damon Harrison this year.

Geremy Davis
Davis (hamstring) worked on the side of practice with the Giants' training staff, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

Davis didn't practice on Sunday after injuring his hamstring during Friday's game against the Dolphins. Though he didn't practice in full, his work on the sidelines is an encouraging sign and he shouldn't be expected to miss much, if any, more time going forward.

Ereck Flowers
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
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.

Eli Manning
Manning will play in Saturday's preseason game against the Bills, NJ.com reports.

After giving way to backup Ryan Nassib in the Giants' preseason opener against the Dolphins last week, Manning in now set to make his 2016 exhibition debut Saturday, which will give him and opportunity to get in some work with the rest of the first-team offense.

Donte Deayon
No Updates
Adam Gettis
The Giants declared linebacker Devon Kennard (toe), wideout Corey Washington, cornerback Jayron Hosley, offensive linemen Adam Gettis and Eric Herman, defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton and tight end Jerome Cunningham inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Emmett Cleary
The Bengals placed tight end Alex Smith (biceps) on injured reserve, released tight end Ryan Otten and signed offensive lineman Emmett Cleary to the practice squad.
Uani' Unga
Unga (neck) is active for Sunday's game in Washington.

Prior to missing three of the last four games due to a neck injury, Unga was among the Giants' leaders in tackles, but Jasper Brinkley has assumed mostly regular duty at middle linebacker during that span. As a result, Unga can't be trusted to match his output from the first half of the season.

Undisclosed - IR.
Ryan Nassib
Nassib completed 7 of 15 passes for 75 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in Friday's 27-10 preseason loss to the Dolphins. He also gained 12 yards on three carries and lost a fumble.

With Eli Manning getting the night off, Nassib received extended action and provided a mixed bag of a performance. Nassib got off to a positive start, leading the Giants on a game-opening touchdown drive but subsequently turning the ball over on three consecutive second-quarter possessions. The third-year signal-caller sandwiched interceptions to Bobby McCain and A.J. Hendy around a fumble on a scramble that was returned by Spencer Paysinger to the Dolphins' five-yard line, setting up a Damien Williams touchdown. The 26-year-old is expected to continue to see extended action throughout the preseason.

Dwayne Harris
Harris (knee) left Saturday's preseason game early, The team's official site reports.

Harris left the matchup with the Bills to get some x-rays of his knee. The 28-year-old hauled in career-highs of 36 receptions, 396 yards and four touchdowns in his first season with the Giants. Although it remains to be seen exactly how long Harris will be out, a serious knee injury would be a big blow to his plans of obtaining an expanded role with the offense in 2016.

Ryan Seymour
Browns backup center Ryan Seymour was suspended Monday for four games without pay for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Seymour, who appeared in 11 games in 2014, is in his third NFL season.
Myles White
With Odell Beckham out, White could see more work Sunday, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

White is slated to start in Beckham's Z receiver spot, and if Dwayne Harris, who's battling a shoulder injury is also out, White could have a significant role.

Stansly Maponga
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.

Weston Richburg
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
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.

Bennett Jackson
The Giants placed offensive lineman Will Beatty (pectoral) on the PUP list Tuesday, which means he will miss at the least the first six weeks of the 2015 season.

The Giants also placed Josh Gordy (hip) and Bennett Jackson (knee) on injured reserve, while waived-injured Brandon Mosley (back) and Akeem Hunt (hamstring).

Darius Powe
No Updates
Jay Bromley
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.

Ankle - PUP. Probable for start of season
Dillon Farrell
49ers quarterback Josh Johnson, wide receiver Bruce Ellington, wide receiver Quinton Patton, cornerback Tramaine Brock, linebacker Dan Skuta, guard/center Dillon Farrell and nose tackle Ian Williams were all ruled inactive Week 11 at N.Y. Giants.
Trevin Wade
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
Thompson (head) was diagnosed with a concussion after leaving Saturday's preseason game early and will have to abide by the league's concussion protocol moving forward.

The Italian native has been relentless in his pursuit of securing a roster spot. However, unfortunately for Thompson, a long history of ailments combined with the uncertainty of his concussion could all but keep him off the 53-man roster. For now, Bennett Jackson and Justin Currie are likely to fill in during his absence.

Nat Berhe
Berhe is in line to start due to Darian Thompson's injured shoulder.

Thompson is currently week-to-week, and it's unclear exactly when he will return. Berhe, in that case, could end up getting some valuable starting opportunities at free safety.

Jonathan Casillas
Casillas is having a great camp and is the Giants best linebacker at this point, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

He's fast and has coverage skills the rest of the corps lacks. He'll start on the weak side where he has a chance to rack up tackles as well as plays in the passing game.

Keenan Robinson
Robinson (groin) will not play in Friday's preseason opener against the Dolphins.

Robinson is competing for a starting linebacker job with the Giants, but won't make his first appearance for the team Friday due to a groin issue. After missing 28 of his first 64 games as a pro, another injury is hardly something new for Robinson, but he's a productive player when healthy, so fantasy owners should hope his groin issue doesn't linger long.

Jake Rodgers
The Falcons announced on Saturday that five draft picks are now under contract. 

In addition to fifth-round pick Grady Jarrett, announced on Friday, the Falcons have signed second-round CB Jalen Collins, fourth-round WR Justin Hardy, seventh rounders G Jake Rodgers and S Akeem King

Marshaun Coprich
No Updates
Sterling Shepard
Shepard failed to haul in his lone target in Saturday's preseason game against the Bills.

Eli Manning completed just four of his nine pass attempts in a 21-0 loss, with no Giants player catching more than two passes. While a strong preseason would be encouraging, Shepard doesn't have any real competition for the No. 2 wide receiver job. He caught one pass for 24 yards in New York's first preseason game, but then left early due to a sore groin.

Landon Collins
Collins had 112 tackles (84) solo, nine passes defensed and one interception during his rookie season.

Those tackle numbers placed him sixth among defensive backs, but Collins was far better in run support than in pass coverage. That said, he improved as the season went along and is expected to be one of the team's core defensive players heading into 2016.

Shane Vereen
Vereen will reprise his role as the team's primary pass-catching back in 2016.

Rashad Jennings will see most of the early-down work, but Vereen is locked in on third downs and should eclipse 50 receptions again if he stays healthy. Should something happen to Jennings, however, there's little chance Vereen would see a significantly larger role. He'd likely remain the third-down option while Paul Perkins or one of the other candidates took over. That makes Vereen mainly useful in full PPR formats only.

Randy Bullock
Bullock is set to sign with the Giants, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

The Giants have been actively shopping in the market of kickers after the news of Josh Brown's domestic violence case seeped out. Bullock will provide a veteran kicking presence and will presumably take over kicking duties for the Giants in week 1.

Justin Currie
The Giants announced Wednesday they signed safety Jeromy Miles, who is entering his sixth NFL season. He has played for the Ravens and Bengals.

The team also waived wide receiver Marcus Harris and safety Justin Currie. Harris missed the 2014 season due to a hip injury, while Currie was signed a rookie free agent in May.

Mark Herzlich
Herzlich (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's game at Washington.

Upgraded from out to questionable Saturday, Herzlich's domain remains special teams, from which he's accrued 20 tackles (11 solo) in 10 games this season.

Logan Thomas
Thomas was claimed off of waivers by the Giants on Friday, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.

Thomas was cut by the Dolphins on Thursday after spending the 2015-16 season on their practice squad. He now heads to New York, where he will likely be the number three quarterback behind Eli Manning and Ryan Nassib. The Giants waived fellow quarterback B.J. Daniels to make room for Thomas on the roster.

Olivier Vernon
The Giants have signed Vernon, NJ.com reports. Per NFL Network, his deal is a five-year, $85 million contract.

After applying their transition tag to Vernon, the Dolphins changed course Wednesday, allowing Vernon -- who is is coming off a 2015 season in which he recorded 61 tackles and 7.5 sacks -- to hit free agency. The Giants then moved in quickly, securing the services of the 25-year-old defensive end, who will provide a huge boost to the team's pass rush.

Louis Nix
Nix was waived by the Giants on Saturday, Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News reports.

The Giants waved Nix in order to make room for defensive back Tramain Jacobs, who was promoted from the practice squad after Leon McFadden was officially ruled out for Sunday's game. Nix never recorded a snap with the Giants in 2015 and will now be subject to the NFL's waiver system. He could opt to rejoin the team at another point in the season if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Davon Coleman
Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy got into an altercation with teammate Davon Coleman during a voluntary offseason workout, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports

Hardy reportedly questioned Coleman's work ethic during a conditioning drill, which led Coleman to call Hardy a "woman beater."

Hardy was accused of domestic abuse and was found guilty by a North Carolina judge. On the subsequent appeal, prosecutors dropped charges against Hardy and the case was never presented in front of a jury. 

Hardy has been suspended by the NFL for 10 games due to what transpired in that case. According to FOX Sports, the confrontation between Hardy and Coleman remained verbal

Bobby Rainey
Rainey fumbled a kickoff and a punt and bobbled another punt Friday against the Dolphins.

He was a long shot to make the team anyway, and his odds just got even longer.

Marshall Newhouse
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.

Kadron Boone
The Colts announced Monday they have waived four players, including running back Jeff Demps, who was never able to translate his world-class speed into the NFL. 

In addition to Demps, the Colts released WR Kadron Boone, DE Gannon Conway and OT Matt Hall

Will Johnson
Johnson suffered a stinger during Friday's preseason victory versus the Dolphins, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Inked in the offseason, Johnson was listed among the tight ends on the Giants' first unofficial depth chart of the preseason. While he'll miss a few days of practice, his ability to line up in the backfield should help him earn consistent snaps on a week-to-week basis.

Romeo Okwara
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.

Kelvin Sheppard
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.

Byron Stingily
The Titans re-signed offensive tackle Byron Stingily to a two-year deal, reports the National Football Post. Stingily, 26, has appeared in 20 games over the past three years with Tennessee, starting nine.
Tyler Ott
The Rams reached the NFL's 75-man roster limit Tuesday with the release of 13 players, per ESPN.com, who include: OT Steven Baker, OT Travis Bond, CB Imoan Claiborne, S Jay Hughes, LB Keshaun Malone, LS Tyler Ott, K/P Michael Palardy, WR Tyler Slavin, TE Brad Smelley (waived/injured), LB Korey Toomer (waived/injured), C David Wang, WR Damian Williams (contract terminated) and DT Doug Worthington.

CB E.J. Gaines (foot) was placed on injured reserve. The Rams had previously waived/injured receiver Isiah Ferguson but he reverted to injured reserve with a torn ACL.

Ben Edwards
Edwards (knee) was waived-injured Wednesday after being diagnosed with a torn ACL over the weekend, Jordan Raanan of NJ Advance Media reports.

The former Richmond Spider spent most of the 2015 season on the practice squad and was active for the final two seasons of the campaign. He was carted off the field for precautionary reasons during a minicamp practice in April and he ultimately tore his ACL during rookie minicamp over the weekend. Edwards was waived in order to clear room on the 90-man roster for a tryout player.

Devon Kennard
Kennard (hamstring) was placed on IR to make roster room for Odell Beckham (suspension.)

Kennard should return as the team's strong side linebacker in 2016.

Brad Bars

Tavarres King
King's solid play in the preseason is pushing him toward a roster spot, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

This will be more relevant if Victor Cruz is cut. Reports on Cruz's last practice were good, but if Cruz's constant injuries prove too much from which to return, someone will have to land the team's No. 3 WR job, and right now King has the upper hand. Keep in mind King is 26 and with only average size and decent speed.

Leon Hall
During 7-on-7 periods, Hall received extensive work at free safety alongside strong safety Landon Collins in the base and nickel defenses, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

With Darian Thompson sidelined for at least a week, the Giants need to find a free safety, and the veteran cornerback could be the solution. If Hall were to wind up starting, he'd have some IDP upside.

Jerell Adams
The Giants selected Adams in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 184th overall.

Adams was widely expected to go in the third or fourth round, so this should turn out to be a nice value for the Giants. It's also a close to ideal landing spot for Adams -- unheralded tight ends like Larry Donnell and Will Tye have made fantasy impacts with the Giants in recent years, and Adams is almost certainly more talented. Standing at 6-foot-5, 247 pounds, Adams showed 4.64 speed at the Combine.

Justin Pugh
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.

Zak DeOssie
The Giants are missing a handful of defensive contributors in Week 6 against the Bears Thursday, but five of eight players listed on the injury report from that side of the ball were able to play.

Defensive back Terrell Thomas (knee), defensive linemen Damontre Moore (hamstring) and Linval Joseph (ankle), and linebackers Mark Herzlich (toe) and Zak DeOssie (back) were all able to play through their injuries Thursday. 

Jasper Brinkley
Brinkley is currently considered the frontrunner to start at middle linebacker despite the offseason addition of Keenan Robinson, the Giants' official site reports.

Last season, Brinkley assumed the starting MLB role in early November after Jon Beason landed on IR, and ultimately finished third on the team in tackles (67) and first in forced fumbles (4). However, the Giants signed fellow MLB Keenan Robinson to a richer contract than that of Brinkley in March, which left many to quickly assume the starting MLB job was all Robinson's. However, the Giants rotated first team linebackers throughout their offseason program, but, unlike Robinson, Brinkley was the player who aligned exclusively at middle linebacker. Meanwhile, Robinson was moved around and experimented with at OLB. Training camp will further illuminate the Giants' plans for their new-look defensive front.

B.J. Goodson
Goodson had a strong game against the Dolphins with seven tackles, including two stuffs.

He's third on the depth chart at middle linebacker, but the players ahead of him, Jasper Brinkley and Kelvin Sheppard, are hardly peak Ray Lewis.

Jermelle Cudjo
The Chiefs released receivers Jerrell Jackson, Darryl Surgent, Deon Anthony and Weston Dressler, defensive tackle Jermelle Cudjo, defensive lineman Jairus Campbell, guard Otis Hudson, cornerbacks Brandon Jones and Vernon Kearney, safety Jerron McMillian and tight end Adam Schiltz.
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle) returned to Sunday's game in Washington, John Clayton of ESPN reports.

Rodgers-Cromartie suffered what appeared to be a serious non-contact injury early in the second quarter, requiring help to leave the field. While he was initially deemed questionable to return, he was able to do so and will likely line up across from Jayron Hosley, as long as remains in the game.
