Darian Thompson plans to return to Giants after the bye week
Darian Thompson provides a timetable on his return to the New York Giants from a foot injury.
Darian Thompson will be playing for the New York Giants again soon.
The rookie starting safety has been without a definitive timeline since injuring his foot in Week 2, but he recently told the New York Post's Zach Braziller that he plans to return after the Giants' bye week. He also told Braziller that he is still working on strengthening the foot.
The Giants have a bye in Week 8 following their Week 7 game vs. the Los Angeles Rams in London.
Thompson was eased back into the rotation for the Giants in Week 1, after dealing with a shoulder injury during the preseason. In Week 2, he was promoted and started at free safety next to Landon Collins. Before suffering the injury in Week 2, Thompson had racked up seven tackles in two games for the Giants. He also played a key role in not allowing any big passing plays during the Giants' first two games.
Safeties Nat Berhe and Andrew Adams have replaced Thompson during his absence. His return to the Giants will be a major boost for a Giants' secondary that has been lacking in the turnover department this season.
