Position Listing
Rashad Jennings
News
Jennings had his best game of the season in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, racking up 170 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries. He also caught two of five targets for six additional yards.

The veteran was fed early and often versus a Philadelphia run defense that had been reeling in the second half of the season, and he responded with his best game since Week 3 of 2014. Jennings' production was rather pedestrian for most of the season, but he finished strong with at least 100 total yards in each of the last four weeks. Jennings is under contract for two more seasons, and he should enter 2016 as the Giants' leading rusher as things currently stand.

Andre Williams
News
Williams carried the ball five times for 26 yards in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia.

Williams topped five yards per carry for just the second time this season during Sunday's contest. The Giants' stable has been an enigma all season, but Rashad Jennings came on late with 432 yards and two of his three scores this season in the final four games. With Shane Vereen likely to continue as a valuable passing-game option, it will be up to the new regime to determine whether Jennings' production is worth his contract, if Williams deserves more opportunities or if the Giants' next featured back is in the draft or free agency pool.

Craig Dahl
News
The Giants announced Monday they signed safety Craig Dahl. To clear a roster spot, safety Stevie Brown was released.
Josh Brown
News
Brown had a strong season, making 30 of 32 field-goal attempts and 44 of 45 extra points.

Moreover, Brown made all three of his attempts from 50-plus. Expect him to return as the team's kicker again next year.

Kerry Wynn
News
The Giants have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's Week 12 matchup with the Cowboys: linebacker Jacquian Williams (concussion), defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (calf), cornerback Mike Harris, defensive end Kerry Wynn and offensive linemen Dallas Reynolds, Justin Pugh and Brandon Mosley.

Williams and Jenkins had already been ruled out on Friday's final injury report of the week. All three of the team's probables are active Sunday, including defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka (knee), guard Geoff Schwartz (toe) and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back, hamstring).

Matt LaCosse
No Updates
Brandon Meriweather
News
Meriweather agreed to a contract with the Giants on Wednesday.

Meriweather was released by the Giants last week, but the team decided to bring him back after fellow safety Cooper Taylor suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Meriweather started 11 games this season, but it remains to be seen if he will do so in either Week 16 or 17.

J.T. Thomas
News
The Giants announced they've signed running back Shane Vereen late Wednesday night. 

The New York Daily News previously reported that Vereen is being signed to a three-year, $12.35 million deal. Vereen rushed for 391 yards and two touchdowns in 2014. He added 447 receiving yards and three touchdowns in the passing game as well. 

“(I made this) decision with my family,” Vereen said, via the team's official website. “At the end of the day, I wanted to make a decision that was right for us, right for them, and this is a great organization. I was fortunate enough to play in New England with another great organization. This is not a step down; if anything, it is a step up. I am looking forward to the opportunity, and I am enjoying being in New York.” 

The Giants also announced the official signings of offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse, wide receiver/return specialist Dwayne Harris and linebackers Jonathan Casillas and J.T. Thomas III.

Injury
Leon McFadden
News
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
News
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.

Injury
Markus Kuhn
News
Giants defensive tackle Markus Kuhn was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Cowboys after suffering a knee sprain, the team announced. He was able to return to the game.
Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Will Tye
News
Tye finished the season with 42 catches for 464 yards and three scores in 13 games.

Tye didn't play a single snap for the season's first three weeks and didn't see regular work until Week 10. From that point on, he had at least 50 receiving yards or a touchdown in six of the last seven games. And all three of his scores game in the final four weeks. Heading into 2016, there's a good chance Tye supplants the injured Larry Donnell as the team's starting tight end.

Rueben Randle
News
Randle plucked four of seven targets from the air during Sunday's win over Philadelphia, tallying 79 yards and a touchdown.

Randle finished the season on a four-game scoring streak, helping him toward a career-high eight touchdowns this season. For much of 2015, the Giants offense was built around Manning to Beckham, with Randle coming on late with Beckham flustered and/or suspended. The Giants have already invested big-time money in Victor Cruz and Beckham's contract will command attention soon enough, making Randle a luxury New York may not be able to afford. Whether or not he stays in the Meadowlands, Randle has established himself as a solid No. 2 or No. 3 target with the size and athleticism to find the end zone with some frequency.

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

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

Barry Cofield
News
The Redskins cut defensive lineman Barry Cofield Friday, according to Cofield's agent Mike McCartney. The team later confirmed the report.

Cofield spent four seasons with Washington, including 2014 where he played in eight games, totaling seven tackles with one sack. He totaled 100 tackles and nine sacks in his four years with the Redskins.

The move will reportedly save the team $4.2 million in cap space with a $3.6 million cap hit, according to the Washington Post.

Cofield reportedly failed a physical, leading to his release.

Montori Hughes
News
The Colts parted ways with WR Duron Carter, DL Josh Chapman and DT Montori Hughes on Saturday, the team announced.
Cooper Taylor
News
According to ESPN, the following players are not expected to dress for the Giants Friday night against the Jets: Odell Beckham, Prince Amukamara, Charles Brown, Jayron Hosley, Trindon Holliday, James Brewer, Peyton Hillis, Xavier Grimble, Jon Beason and Cooper Taylor.
Owa Odighizuwa
News
Giants defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa, who missed the first three games of the season with a foot injury, saw 47 snaps Sunday against the Bills.

Odighizuwa had one solo tackle and one assist, but has some upside as a pass rusher going forward.

Larry Donnell
News
Donnell (neck) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.

Donnell strongly hinted at this outcome two weeks ago when an MRI revealed that the problem with his neck is worse than initially believed. He should have time to recover before training camp, but the Giants will have to make do with Will Tye and Jerome Cunningham for the rest of the season. It won't be surprising if the team prioritizes the tight end position this offseason, as the lead-footed Donnell isn't much of a threat outside of the red zone, and Tye has been very inconsistent.

Injury
Neck - IR. Out for season
Shane McDermott
No Updates
Tramain Jacobs
News
The Ravens have announced that wide receiver Kamar Aiken and cornerback Tramain Jacobs each signed their exclusive-rights tenders on Monday, reports the Baltimore Sun. 

Aiken's offer was for $585,000 while Jacobs' was $510,000. 

Aiken played in 16 games for Ravens last season, catching 24 passes for 267 yards. Jacobs played in three games in 2014, finishing his rookie campaign on injured reserve (thigh).

Victor Cruz
News
Cruz is recovering from a torn fascia in his left calf, which kept him from logging any snaps during the 2015 campaign, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.

After sustaining the ailment in mid-August, it was initially reported that Cruz was dealing with a sprain, but recurring inflammation forced the Giants to shut down the fifth-year wide receiver during a Week 11 bye. With the "very rare" diagnosis official, he's expected to be 100 percent once the healing process from season-ending surgery is complete. While the recovery from this injury is accompanied by no issues long-term, the rehab process will nonetheless be monitored closely as the offseason proceeds.

Injury
Calf - IR. Out for season
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.

Odell Beckham
News
Beckham caught five of seven targets for 54 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

The second-year wideout struggled to make an impact in his return from a one-game suspension, totaling his lowest yardage output since Week 7. Beckham still managed to surpass his totals from a season ago despite his late season issues, with 96 receptions, 1,450 yards and 13 touchdowns on the season. Beckham is an elite receiver who has the full attention of Eli Manning most weeks, and big things should be expected once again in 2016.

Jerome Cunningham
News
Cunningham was promoted to the 53-man roster Thursday, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

Cunningham played one game for the Giants earlier in the year in which he caught one pass for three yards. He, along with fellow tight end Will Tye, will provide extra insurance with starter Larry Donnell (neck) questionable for Sunday's matchup against Tampa Bay.

Jason Pierre-Paul
News
Pierre-Paul is undergoing surgery on his right hand Monday, the New York Daily News reports.

Pierre-Paul revealed that he would need at least two surgeries to repair his well-documented injured right hand following the regular season, so Monday's procedure appears to be his first operation of this offseason. In doing so, Pierre-Paul may not need to wear a club over his hand in future games. In any case, Pierre-Paul's situation will be interesting to monitor in the coming months, as he's a candidate to receive the Giants' franchise tag again, or become an unrestricted free agent.

Jayron Hosley
News
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.
Brett Jones
News
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.

Injury
Johnathan Hankins
News
Hankins will miss the rest of this season after suffering a torn pectoral that will require surgery.

Hankins' season-ending injury was confirmed Monday, leaving the Giants without their outstanding third-year defensive tackle going forward. With Hankins out, New York's remaining interior defensive lineman are currently Markus Kuhn, Jay Bromley and Kenrick Ellis, although fullback Nikita Whitlock has also seen occasional snaps there as well.

Injury
Pectoral - IR. Out for season
Jon Beason
News
Beason (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Since joining the Giants in 2013, the oft-injured linebacker has played in just 19 games with the team, and he's played in 10+ games just twice in his seven year career. Considering Beason is entering the final year of his contract, the Giants could save nearly $5 million in cap space next year if they cut the 30-year-old linebacker by the beginning of March, so his presence on the roster in 2016 is far from a guarantee.

Injury
Ankle, knee - IR. Out for season
Geremy Davis
News
The Giants have announced the signing of sixth-round wide receiver Geremy Davis.

The University of Connecticut product regressed last year after snagging 71 passes for 1,085 yards the previous season. He followed it up with 44 catches for 51 yards.

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
The Giants have acquired punter Brad Wing from the Steelers for a future late-round draft pick, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Wing will replace the released Steve Weatherford.

Wing averaged 43.7 yards per punt last season for Pittsburgh.

Daniel Fells
News
Fells (ankle) was released from the hospital Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports 1 reports.

Fells spent nearly three weeks in the hospital, having numerous surgeries to treat a MRSA infection, but the issue is now under control. Now that he's returned home, he'll be monitored by an in-home nurse, with the likelihood that his NFL career is over as a result.

Injury
T.J. Heath
News
The Dolphins waived defensive back T.J. Heath, kicker Zach Hocker and defensive back Lowell Rose on Tuesday, the team announced.

Heath and Rose were with the team during the 2014 season, while Hocker was signed in the offseason. 

Eli Manning
News
Manning completed 24 of 43 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. He also lost a fumble.

The veteran could have had a bigger day, but the Giants' success on the ground and his inability to create many big plays capped his production. Despite his team's inability to make the playoffs yet again, Manning actually enjoyed one of the best statistical seasons of his career, setting a new personal best of 35 touchdown passes and generating 4,436 yards through the air. A coaching change is expected to occur in New York this offseason, but Manning should have the supporting cast to remain productive regardless of who is at the helm next season.

Adam Gettis
News
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.
Robert Ayers
News
Ayers notched six tackles (five solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Despite the fact that the Giants gave up 49 points to the Vikings, Ayers was one of the few bright spots on defense as he recorded 1.5 sacks for the second straight week. The veteran pass-rusher now has eight sacks on the year which marks a new career-high for him. He'll be a solid IDP play next week against the Eagles at home.

Emmett Cleary
News
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
News
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.

Ryan Nassib
News
Giants backup quarterback Ryan Nassib finished up Sunday night's 27-0 loss to the Eagles. Although he took two sacks, Nassib completed 4 of 5 passes for 60 yards without a turnover.

He'll go back to the bench for Week 7 at Dallas.

Dwayne Harris
News
Harris finished the year with 36 catches for 396 yards and four touchdowns. He also had 631 kick and 341 punt return yards and scored on one of each.

Harris was a valuable contributor to the Giants both as a part-time receiver and return man and should reprise those roles next year. In leagues that don't count return yards, he won't have much value, however.

Danny Aiken
News
The Patriots listed 18 players on its final injury report for Week 17 against Buffalo. Quarterback Tom Brady (ankle) was the only player on the report listed as probable, while running back Jonas Gray (ankle) and cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring) were ruled out. The rest were deemed questionable.

The others include long snapper Danny Aiken (finger), cornerback Kyle Arrington (hamstring), running back LeGarrette Blount (shoulder), cornerback Brandon Browner (groin), linebacker Jamie Collins, offensive lineman Dan Connolly (knee), wide receiver Julian Edelman (thigh, concussion), offensive lineman Cameron Fleming (ankle), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), defensive end Chandler Jones (hip), wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder), defensive end Rob Ninkovich (heel), running back Shane Vereen (ankle), offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer and linebacker Chris White (ankle).

Injury
Cullen Jenkins
News
The Giants and defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins reworked Jenkins' contract to reduce his 2015 salary from $2.2 million to $1 million, reports the New York Daily News.

The reported deal would save the Giants $825,000 in salary cap space. In 12 games during the 2014 season, Jenkins totaled 16 tackles and one sack.

Nico Johnson
News
In addition to the moves the Bengals made Monday, most notably releasing receiver Denarius Moore, the team cut seven more players to get down to the 75-man limit, per ESPN.com. 

The team released WR Desmond Lawrence, LB Nico Johnson, DT Kwame Geathers, DE Sam Montgomery, OG Chris Jasperse, TE John Peters and WR Tevin Reese

The team put FB Mark Weisman and WR Onterio McCalebb on the waived/injured list, LB Sean Porter on the reserve/PUP list and OT Cedric Ogbuehi on the reserve/non-football injury list.

Prince Amukamara
News
Amukamara finished the year with 63 tackles (55 solo), 10 passes defensed and one interception in 11 games.

Amukamara is a solid cover corner, but he's stayed healthy only one year out of give, missing 25 games over that span. He should return as one of the Giants starters next season.

Myles White
News
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
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.

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.

Bennett Jackson
News
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).

Injury

Police are investigating a claim that Bromley attempted to rape a woman early Saturday, the New York Daily News reports.

Bromley just finished his second season with the Giants, but an accusation as serious as this could make it his last. After the alleged incident, Bromley is further accused of injuring the woman by driving off after the woman allegedly jumped onto the hood of his car, demanding to be returned to her home. No arrest has been made to this point, however. The Giants said they are aware of the situation.

Hakeem Nicks
News
Nicks had one catch for four yards on three targets in Sunday's 49-17 loss to the Vikings.

According to Pro Football Focus, Nicks was one of four New York wideouts to play between 27 and 36 snaps (out of 62). Regardless, any hint of appeal will be gone next week, as Odell Beckham (suspension) is expected to return for a favorable matchup with the Eagles.

George Selvie
News
George Selvie will be reunited with former University of South Florida teammate Jason Pierre-Paul in New York. The defensive lineman signed a one-year, $1.4 million deal with the Giants that includes a $200,000 signing bonus, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Selvie, 28, spent the previous two seasons with the Cowboys, starting in 29 of 32 games for Dallas. He registered 60 tackles, including 10 sacks over that span.

Glenn Carson
News
The Cardinals relased punter Dave Zastudil, LB Lorenzo Alexander, ILB Glenn Carson, G Nate Isles, ILB Edwin Jackson, ILB Andrae Kirk, S Shaq Richardson, TE Gannon Sinclair, WR Ryan Spadola and S Darren Woodard on Monday.

They also waived/injured wide receiver Travis Harvey (hamstring), who will be placed on injured reserve if he clears waivers.

Jonathan Casillas
News
Casillas (neck) is active for Sunday's contest versus the Cowboys, the Giants' official site reports.

While he's available to the Giants' linebacking corps, Casillas will likely yield most of the reps on the strong side to Devon Kennard (hamstring). Either way, Casillas holds little sway in IDP leagues with 23 tackles (13 solo) and one sack on his ledger to date.

Jake Rodgers
News
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

Landon Collins
News
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
News
Vereen caught two of five targets for 21 yards and added a three-yard rush in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Last week's 12-touch game appears to have been an exception, not a rule, as it is the only contest out of the past six in which Vereen has recored double-digit touches. It's been feast or famine all season for the shifty, pass-catching back, with three eight-catch games on the season, but eight games of two or fewer receptions. The Giants close out the season against a deflated Eagles team that is rudderless on defense. Vereen could make an impact if he were to see enough touches - but that's too big of an if to count on.

Justin Currie
News
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.

Injury
Undisclosed - IR. Out for season
Julian Talley
News
Giants wide receiver Julian Talley, linebacker Jon Beason, tackle Adam Snyder, tackle Charles Brown, defensive end Kerry Wynn, guard James Brewer and defensive tackle Jay Bromley were all ruled inactive Week 5 vs. Atlanta.
Mark Herzlich
News
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.

Brandon Mosley
News
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).

Injury
Louis Nix
News
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.

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
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).

Trumaine McBride
News
The Giants placed cornerback Trumaine McBride (thumb) on injured reserve Tuesday. McBride underwent surgery Monday after injuring his thumb in Week 6.
Tyler Ott
News
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.

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. 

Injury
Dallas Reynolds
News

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
News
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.
