Pettis caught two passes for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' regular-season finale. Actually, one of the catches was a trap that Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy failed to challenge, but who's counting? In any event, the 2018 second-round pick is still only 25 and should get another chance to carve out a role somewhere.
Pettis caught two of three targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Ravens. Pettis finally made his Giants debut and finished third among the team's wide receivers by playing 29 of 64 offensive snaps. The 2018 second-round pick for the 49ers will look to build on this performance against a soft Dallas defense in Week 17.
Pettis will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Pettis will sit out for the second game in a row and he has yet to make his Giants debut since being claimed off waivers via San Francisco. Austin Mack and C.J. Board are expected to continue to serve as the reserve receiving options for Week 14 sans Pettis.
Pettis (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 13 tilt against the Seahawks. The young journeyman was removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, but his Giants debut will have to wait at least another week. Austin Mack and C.J. Board will continue to serve as the reserve wideout options behind the top trio of Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Golden Tate against Seattle.
The Giants activated Pettis from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports. Pettis' team debut has been put on hold because of his stint on the reserve list. It appears he'll finally suit up for the Giants in Sunday's game against the Seahawks, a meeting between division leaders. It's unclear how much of an impact Pettis will have on offense with the starting wide receiver jobs locked down by Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Golden Tate. Pettis could contribute as a returner immediately.
