  • Giants' Leonard Williams: Another solid season

    Williams had another solid season for the Giants, finishing third in tackles (82) among defensive ends while notching 6.5 sacks.

    Williams did finish the year with an eight-game sack drought, but chalk that up in part to opposing teams having leads all game and rarely being in must-throw situations. Williams' tackle numbers and even the modest sack totals are strong for a 3-4 defensive end, and he should reprise his role as a key player in the team's defense for 2022.

  • Giants' Leonard Williams: Limited participant Wednesday

    Williams (elbow/arm) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice session, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Williams was initially believed to be dealing with a significant injury, but he received a more encouraging diagnosis Tuesday. His limited participation in practice Wednesday suggests that he could be available Sunday against the Cowboys.

  • Giants' Leonard Williams: Could play again this season

    Williams (elbow/arm) has a chance to play again this season and could even return as early as Week 15, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

    Williams was feared to have potentially suffered a severe injury during Sunday's loss to the Chargers, but it appears that further medical tests have returned more optimistic results. The seventh-year pro hasn't missed a game in his career due to injury, as Raanan notes, and he hasn't yet been ruled out against the Cowboys in Week 15, but the Giants might opt to allow Williams some time on the sideline to recuperate.

  • Giants' Leonard Williams: Suffers potential serious injury

    Williams (elbow) is feared to have suffered a significant injury during Sunday's loss to the Chargers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Coach Joe Judge said Williams will have an MRI on Monday, so until those results are available, there is no official confirmation of his status. However, Rapoport reports there is a chance the veteran defensive lineman has played the last snaps of his 2021 campaign. Before the injury, Williams had played at least 70 percent of the Giants' defensive snaps in every game this season, totaling 61 tackles and 5.5 sacks.
