Mauro has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2018 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances. Mauro, who remains eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games, could possibly have the suspension reduced if he chooses to appeal the decision. Assuming the suspension sticks, the Giants will now be approaching the 2018 season with even more concerns at defensive end, making it increasingly likely the team addresses the position via the upcoming draft.
Mauro signed with the Giants on Monday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports. Mauro spent the past four seasons in Arizona, where he racked up 75 combined tackles and two sacks over the course of 47 gamess. It's unclear how he'll fit in with New York, but the 27-year-old has ties to new Giants defensive coordinator James Bettcher, who held the same position with the Cardinals from 2015 through 2017.
Mauro (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports. Mauro sat out practice to start the week but put in limited sessions Thursday and Friday to earn the questionable tag. The 26-year-old sprained his ankle in last Sunday's win over the Jaguars and will likely be a game-day decision for Week 13.
Mauro (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Mauro has just 18 tackles and one sack through 10 games, so fantasy owners likely won't feel the effects of his performance as much as the Cardinals do. His snap counts have been low all season too, and with a lingering high-ankle sprain, more of the same is to be expected.
After a limited workload at Friday's practice, Mauro (ankle) has been listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Mauro was unable to practice until Friday, so he does appear to be trending in the right direction. An absence Sunday would mark his first of the season. Olsen Pierre would presumably be in line to fill in at defensive end should the 26-year-old ultimately be unable to suit up.
