Position Listing
Rashad Jennings
Jennings carried 13 times for 25 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-10 win over the Rams. He also caught two of three targets for an additional 24 yards.

It was tough sledding on the ground for Jennings, who averaged 1.9 yards per carry, but a modest contribution in the passing game and a short fourth quarter touchdown salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective and won his team the game. Jennings increased his involvement a week after returning from a three-week absence, and he will use the upcoming bye to get completely healthy before the Week 9 matchup with the Eagles.

Michael Hunter
No Updates
Kerry Wynn
Wynn (undisclosed) finished the preseason with 4 tackles, a pass defensed, and and pick-six.

Wynn missed the team's first two games for undisclosed reasons but came on strong when he was finally healhty. His 73-yard pick six was one of the Giants' best plays of the preseason. He looks to be a rotational defensive lineman once the regular season begins, and the primary backup to Jason Pierre-Paul.

Matt LaCosse
LaCosse (knee) was placed on the Giants' injured reserve list on Tuesday.

LaCosse injured his knee at the onset of training camp that has since required surgery. There is no timeline for his return.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Paul Perkins
Perkins had two more carries for 10 yards and two catches for 16 on Sunday against the Ravens.

He looks quicker and more explosive than the team's veteran backs, but apparently has to improve in pass protection to get more work. If you have a deep bench, he's worth a stash.

J.T. Thomas
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.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Nikita Whitlock
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.

Suspension - Suspended for 10 games
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 (groin) will not play Sunday against the Ravens.

Bothered by a groin injury of late, there wasn't much optimism Apple would be able to suit up anyway.

Will Tye
Tye caught both passes that came his way in Sunday's win over Baltimore, totaling 15 yards.

With Larry Donnell back in the fold, Tye's offensive snapcount dropped to 23. In the four games in which both have finished the game, Donnell has led Tye in average snapcount, 37 to 29, and targets 4.5 to 3.3. Neither has been particularly productive this season without a 50-yard game between them, but Donnell has been the better of the two, scoring the pair's lone touchdown and collecting two games with four or more receptions to Tye's one.

Orleans Darkwa
Darkwa did not record a single carry Sunday against the Ravens.

His window of opportunity is likely closed for the foreseeable future.

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 caught six of seven targets for 34 yards against the Ravens Sunday.

He was part of Ben McAdoo's dink and dunk attack, but made a mental error, going out of bounds to stop the clock before getting a first down, forcing the Giants into a 4th-and-1. Still, he's the team's starting tight end for now.

Victor Cruz
Cruz led the team with 55 yards on five receptions (eight targets) in Sunday's 17-10 win over the Rams.

The Giants struggled to move the ball as Eli Manning averaged just 5.3 yards per attempt, putting Cruz at the top of the heap in terms of receiver production despite his modest output. Cruz has generally been involved on a weekly basis this season, but the presence of rookie Sterling Shepard, who had seven targets of his own Sunday, has prevented him from reestablishing himself as a trusted fantasy contributor. He will enjoy a bye next week before taking on the Eagles the following Sunday.

Janoris Jenkins
Jenkins intercepted Aaron Rodgers twice Sunday night in Green Bay.

He had only one tackle and one assist, but along with the picks he did a nice job staying with Jordy Nelson.

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
According to coach Ben McAdoo, Beckham was "pretty sore" Monday and spent the day getting treatment, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Beckham opted to play through a minor hip injury during Sunday's victory over the Rams and is now dealing with some additional soreness, so he ended up receiving treatment Monday to take care of the pain. It's fully expected that Beckham will continue to play through any minor ailments, although it's still something to monitor over the next few weeks. The Giants are currently heading into a bye week, which should give Beckham plenty of time to fully recover prior to a Week 9 matchup with the Eagles.

Coty Sensabaugh
Sensabaugh was signed by the Giants on Tuesday, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

Sensabaugh was cut by the Rams just three days ago but now heads across the country to join the Giants. New York is dealing with several injuries in their secondary as the 27-year-old figures to fill a reserve role behind the likes of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and rookie Eli Apple, who are both dealing with groin injuries this week.

Darian Thompson
Thompson (foot) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Rams.

Thompson, who hasn't suited up since sustaining a sprained foot in Week 2, didn't practice all week and there doesn't appear to be any optimism he'll be back soon.

Foot - Questionable for Week 9 vs. Philadelphia
Jason Pierre-Paul
Pierre-Paul (groin) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.

Pierre-Paul has logged 71 or more snaps in three straight weeks, and appears in line to resume his starting role opposite Olivier Vernon Sunday afternoon. Pierre-Paul has just one sack on the year, but has been a disruptive force in the New York pass rush nonetheless.

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.

Robbie Gould
Gould signed a contract with the Giants on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

Gould's signing with the Giants comes on the heels of the team announcing that Josh Brown would not travel with the team to London for Week 7. With the reopening of Brown's domestic violence case, Gould could be the team's kicker for more than just one game. Gould made 33 of 39 field goal attempts with Chicago last season, including seven of nine from over 50 yards.

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.

Roger Lewis
Lewis (coach's decision) is inactive for the Giants' Week 2 tilt against the Saints.

Buried on the depth chart at receiver, Lewis is simply a healthy scratch this week.

Andrew Adams
No Updates
Ishaq Williams
No Updates
Geremy Davis
Davis didn't make the team's final 53-man roster.

He was an early favorite in camp, but a hamstring injury slowed him, and he had no role on special teams. If he doesn't end up elsewhere, he'll wind up on the practice squad.

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.

Robert Thomas
Thomas (illness) was not listed on the Giants' injury report on Thursday and is all cleared to play Sunday.

Thomas has been dealing with some sort of illness the entirety of the season, but is now expected to make his season debut this Sunday against the Packers. The 25-year-old will play in reserve role behind starter Jonathan Hankins, so expect his reps to be limited.

Eli Manning
Manning completed 24 of 37 passes for just 196 yards in Sunday's 17-10 win over the Rams.

Manning went without a turnover for the first time this season, but the offense as a whole was ineffective, leading to a very low 5.3 yards per attempt. He failed to throw a touchdown for the third time in 2016, but his team was able to grind out a win with a rushing score and a pick-six from the defense. Manning has been wildly erratic this season, as this clunker came on the heels of his best game of the season, and he will use the upcoming bye week to try and sort it out before taking on the Eagles in Week 9.

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.
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 - Injured Reserve
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 returned to Sunday's game against the Rams, but was held without a catch.

Harris was carted off the field after getting hit on a punt return, but it surprisingly wasn't very long until he re-entered the game. However, his complete lack of a receiving stat line is yet another reminder of Harris' irrelevance in fantasy circles; the return specialist hasn't seen a single target all season.

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.

Deontae Skinner
The Eagles filled out their 90-man roster Friday by signing linebacker Deontae Skinner, who last played for the Patriots in 2014, per the team's website. 

Skinner played in seven games with New England last season, his rookie NFL campaign, picking up 16 tackles. He was released off the team's practice squad in May. 

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.

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.

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 (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.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Nat Berhe
Berhe (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Rams.

Berhe hasn't played since Week 3. Andrew Adams and Landon Collins are now the only healthy safeties on the Giants' roster.

Concussion - Questionable for Week 9 vs. Philadelphia
Jonathan Casillas
Casillas posted 11 tackles Sunday against the Ravens.

Casillas posted his second double-digit tackle effort of the season, and is now averaging 8.5 stops per contest. The veteran never averaged as many as six tackles per game in the first seven years of his career, but the sample size is now large enough that his production appears to be sustainable. In deeper IDP leagues, the one-category producer is worth a roster spot.

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.

Sterling Shepard
Shepard caught four of his eight targets for 25 yards Sunday against the Ravens

It's good that he's seeing targets, but it's all dink and dunk which isn't likely to translate into much production. Perhaps with Odell Beckham finally getting loose, it'll encourage Ben McAdoo to open things up, but we wouldn't count on it.

Landon Collins
Collins had 10 solo tackles, two assists and a sack Sunday against the Ravens.

He's one of the more reliable sources of tackles from a defensive back and got his sack on a rare blitz from defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.

Shane Vereen
Vereen underwent surgery on his torn triceps Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Initially, Vereen's return timetable was believed to be two months, but Raanan relayed that the running back likely won't achieve full health until late December. In the event the Giants are in playoff contention at that point, they could (and very likely will) activate Vereen from the Reserve/Injured list. Upon his potential return, his role could include anything from No. 1 RB to third-down pass-catching back, depending on the health of Rashad Jennings (thumb) and company.

Triceps - Injured Reserve
Josh Johnson
Johnson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 2 matchup versus the Saints.

The veteran backup is expected to carry this same status the majority of the season, barring injury to either Eli Manning or top backup Ryan Nassib.

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.

Olivier Vernon
Vernon had five tackles, including one for a loss, and pressured Ryan Fitzpatrick into bad throws several times Saturday against the Jets.

Vernon's been a disruptive force this preseason, looking very much like the player who dominated in the second half last year and for whom the Giants paid $85 million this offseason.

Bobby Rainey
Rainey had six carries for 13 yards and two catches for 16 more Sunday against the Ravens.

Rainey's getting work subbing in for Rashad Jennings and coming out of the backfield on passing downs. Rookie Paul Perkins looks quicker and more explosive than either veteran, but apparently his pass blocking is poor, given Rainey a chance to continue in this role.

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.

Calf - Questionable for Week 9 vs. Philadelphia
Will Beatty
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.

Laurence Gibson
Cowboys seventh-round pick Laurence Gibson underwent surgery on a broken finger and will not take part in either OTAs or mini-camp as he tries to make the roster as a tackle, per the Dallas Morning-News

Gibson, who went to Virginia Tech, is expected to be ready for July's training camp. 

Will Johnson
Johnson (shoulder) was placed on IR on Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of Sportsnet New York reports.

Johnson suffered a stinger early on in the preseason and hadn't returned since. He had an MRI done on his shoulder which he claims came back clean, but the doctors didn't know when he would get strength back in his arm, so the Giants decided to shut him down for the year.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
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.

Eric Pinkins
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.

Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 9 vs. Philadelphia
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.

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.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Devon Kennard
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
King figures to play a "decent amount" in Sunday's game against Dallas, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan.

Raanan and SNY's Ralph Vacchiano have both suggested that King made a strong late push to overtake Dwayne Harris for the No. 4 spot on the depth chart. If indeed true, King could be just one Odell Beckham/Sterling Shepard injury away from a starting job outside, as No. 3 wideout Victor Cruz may almost exclusively operate from the slot. It also remains to be seen how many snaps Cruz will play in his first game since October 2014. If Cruz is at all limited, King could conceivably push for 20+ snaps on offense.

Leon Hall
Hall (concussion) returned to practice Monday, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports.

Hall suffered a concussion during the Giants' third preseason bout. His return to practice bodes well for his health, but his Week 1 status remains up in the air.

Jerell Adams
Adams (ear) returned to practice Friday as a full participant and doesn't have a designation on thefinal injury report for Sunday's game against Baltimore.

With Larry Donnell returning from a concussion, Adams will slide back to No. 3 on the depth chart.

Jon Halapio
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
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. 

B.J. Goodson
Goodson sustained a concussion during Saturday's preseason contest versus the Jets.

Selected by the Giants in the fourth round of the 2016, Goodson has so far been unable to rise above third-string status on the unofficial depth chart, despite combining for 11 tackles (10 solo) in the team's first two exhibitions. Due to the murkiness surrounding concussions, a timetable for a return is up in the air.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
Rodgers-Cromartie (groin) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.

Rodgers-Cromartie, the defender responsible for 11 combined tackles and three passes defended in 2016, appears poised to start opposite Janoris Jenkins. The Giants are hopeful he can take on a heavy snap count Sunday, as Eli Apple (groin) won't be suiting up for the contest.
