Stewart retires as the franchise leader in carries (1,699), rushing yards (7,318) and rushing touchdowns (51), finishing slightly ahead of longtime backfield mate DeAngelo Williams in each category.

    Jonathan Stewart: Hitting open market

    The Giants let Wednesday's deadline pass without picking up the second-year option on Jonathan Stewart's (foot) contract, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.As expected, Stewart hits the open market six weeks before his 32nd birthday. He's believed to have made a full recovery from the foot injury that landed him on injured reserve in 2018, but he'll have a hard time getting offers for much more than the veteran's minimum. It won't come as any surprise if Stewart decides to retire.

    Giants' Jonathan Stewart: Won't have option picked up

    Jonathan Stewart (foot) will become a free agent when the New York Giants decline to exercise the option for the second season of his two-year contract, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.It's a foregone conclusion the Giants won't exercise the option before the Feb. 4 deadline, instead moving forward with Saquon Barkley and Wayne Gallman in the backfield. The 31-year-old Stewart seems to have recovered from the foot injury that landed him on injured reserve in late September, but the Giants didn't see any reason to bring him back to the active roster. He likely will need to battle for a depth job if he intends to continue his career.

    Giants' Jonathan Stewart: Won't return this season

    Jonathan Stewart (foot) isn't practicing Wednesday and will revert to injured reserve, ending his season, Ryan Dunleavy of NJ.com reports.Back on Nov. 15, the New York Giants designated Stewart as one of two players eligible to return from IR this season, giving the team 21 days to evaluate him for reinstatement to the roster. Though Stewart is back to full strength after being shut down with the foot injury earlier this season, the Giants simply didn't have a need for him with Wayne Gallman proving to be an effective complement to three-down workhorse Saquon Barkley while also offering more value than Stewart on special teams. Stewart is under contract with the Giants through the 2019 season, though it doesn't appear especially likely that the club will retain the 31-year-old.

    Giants' Jonathan Stewart: Healthy enough to play

    Coach Pat Shurmur said Wednesday that Jonathan Stewart (foot) is "ready to go" if the New York Giants need him for Sunday's game against the Bears, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.The Giants designated Stewart as one of their two players eligible to return from injured reserve, bringing him back to practice Nov. 15. The team will have until Dec. 6 to either activate Stewart or leave him on IR the rest of the campaign, with the decision likely to hinge on whether Saquon Barkley and Wayne Gallman remain in good health leading up to that date. Gallman has proven to be a competent backup for Barkley, and since Stewart doesn't offer value on special teams, there likely wouldn't be much incentive for the Giants to bring the veteran back onto the 53-man roster.

    Giants' Jonathan Stewart: Designated for return from IR

    Jonathan Stewart (foot) returned to practice Thursday, opening a 21-day window for the New York Giants to evaluate him for a return to the 53-man roster.The Giants placed Stewart on IR back on Sept. 28 after he failed to demonstrate much progress from a lingering foot injury. Shortly after the Giants dropped the veteran running back from the roster, coach Pat Shurmur clarified that Stewart would require about eight weeks to recover from the injury. Assuming that timeline is still accurate, Stewart would be eligible to return from IR as soon as the Giants' Nov. 25 contest against the Eagles. If activated, Stewart would likely handle only a limited role behind rookie Saquon Barkley, who has proven highly capable of handling a three-down workload out of the backfield.

    Giants' Jonathan Stewart: Dealing with eight-week timeline

    Jonathan Stewart (foot) is expected to face an eight-week recovery period, with head coach Pat Shurmur stating that there is 'potential to bring him back' from injured reserve, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.Whether or not Stewart is activated from injured reserve likely depends on what other injuries the New York Giants face this season, as they are only permitted to bring back two players from the list after an eight-week inactive period. With Stewart out, Wayne Gallman is firmly entrenched as Saquon Barkley's backup at running back

    Giants' Jonathan Stewart: Placed on IR

    The New York Giants placed Jonathan Stewart (foot) on injured reserve Friday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.The nature of Stewart's foot injury is unknown, but it's serious enough that a lengthy recovery effort is expected. If this is the last down he plays in 2018, he'll finish the campaign with six carries for 17 yards. Moving forward, look for any RB touches not allotted to Saquon Barkley to go to Wayne Gallman.

    Giants' Jonathan Stewart: Won't play against Saints

    Jonathan Stewart (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.This shouldn't have much impact on the New York Giants' game plan, considering Stewart had just six carries on 17 snaps after three games. Wayne Gallman could get a few more touches than usual behind workhorse Saquon Barkley.
