Davis Webb: Could be pressed into action for NY
Webb could be asked to either start or work as a backup for the Giants in their Week 5 contest against Green Bay in London with the status of both Daniel Jones (ankle) and Tyrod Taylor (concussion) currently unclear, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Though Jones was able to re-enter Sunday's win over Chicago after hurting his ankle in the third quarter, he didn't throw another pass, initially ceding snaps to Saquon Barkley out of the wildcat and subsequently handing off the ball to run out the clock. He likely wouldn't have been in the game at all if not for Taylor's injury, which was later confirmed to be a concussion. Taylor's ability to play in London next weekend is in considerable doubt given his diagnoses, and it's possible that Jones is suffering from a high-ankle sprain, though the injury has yet to be fully diagnosed, per Raanan . As such, there's a definite possibility of Webb being called up from the practice squad and potentially throwing his first NFL pass against the Packers next Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Davis Webb: Headed to practice squad
The Giants signed Webb to the practice squad Wednesday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.
Webb will return to New York via the practice squad after being released as part of the team's final roster cuts Tuesday. The 27-year-old signal-caller registered an impressive preseason campaign with the Giants, and it's possible that he could still land on another team's active roster this regular season. For now, Webb should serve as the Giants' emergency backup if quarterbacks Daniel Jones or Tyrod Taylor (back) are unable to suit up on any gamedays this regular season.... See More ... See Less
Davis Webb: Let go by Big Blue
The Giants waived Webb on Tuesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Webb was dynamic during the preseason, compiling 458 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions while completing 74 percent of his passes. His release suggests that backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor (back) should be full go by the start of the regular season, but it's possible that Webb will get a look from another team after his breakout performances during the Giants' exhibition contests. Webb has only appeared in one career regular-season game, garnering four offensive snaps with the Bills in 2021.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Davis Webb: Impressive in extended action
Webb completed 30 of 38 pass attempts for 202 yards and one touchdown without an interception in Sunday's preseason win over Cincinnati. He added four carries for 13 yards on the ground.
Starter Daniel Jones didn't play in the contest, and backup Tyrod Taylor exited with a back injury near the end of the first quarter. As a result, Webb played the remainder of the game, and he seized the opportunity, connecting with 13 different receivers for 202 yards. His lone touchdown came on an 18-yard hookup with tight end Austin Allen in the fourth quarter. Webb already had a good chance of making the 53-man roster as the Giants' third quarterback, and his strong play over the past two weeks along with Taylor's injury make that scenario even more of a likelihood....

Giants' Davis Webb: Shines Sunday against Bengals
Webb completed 22 of 27 pass attempts for 204 yards and two touchdowns without committing a turnover in Sunday's 25-22 preseason win over Cincinnati.
The New York passing game was very effective in the contest, as Webb, Daniel Jones and Tyrod Taylor combined to complete 43 of 54 passes for 356 yards. Webb had the most attempts, completions and yards of the trio, and he threw for the team's only two passing touchdowns. The 27-year-old connected with Alex Bachman twice for scores, including a 15-yard connection with 35 seconds remaining in the contest that pulled New York ahead for good. Jones and Taylor are locked into the No. 1 and 2 QB roles, respectively, but there's a good chance that the Giants will carry three signal-callers, allowing Webb to make the 53-man roster....

Giants' Davis Webb: Inks future deal
Webb was signed to a reserve/future contract by the Giants on Monday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Webb was selected in the third round of the 2017 draft by the Giants, but he has bounced around the league since. After being cut during their 2018 training camp, Webb has had a stint with the Jets and most recently has been on the Bills' practice squad. The five-year veteran will work to make his second chance with the Giants stick in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Davis Webb: Back to practice squad
Webb reverted to the Bills' practice squad Monday, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.
Webb was a gameday elevation for Sunday's blowout victory over the Jets, and he played four offensive snaps at the end of the contest without attempting a pass. He was elevated against New York since Mitchell Trubisky (illness) was unavailable while on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but Trubisky was reinstated to the active roster Monday.... See More ...

Davis Webb: Back with Buffalo
Webb was one of 15 players signed to the Bills' practice squad Wednesday, Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports.
Also signed to the practice squad was fellow quarterback Jake Fromm, so it's not quite clear which quarterback the team would elevate if either Josh Allen or Mitchell Trubisky suffers an injury. Webb is said to be a strong presence in the quarterback room, so the Bills are likely happy to keep him in the fold on some level, even though he may not initially be suiting up for game days....

Davis Webb: Hits streets with Fromm
Webb was waived by Buffalo on Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Webb had been competing with second-year man Jake Fromm for a spot as a potential third QB for the Bills, but in the end the team decided to roll with just two quarterbacks, and neither Webb nor Fromm made the final roster. If only one of the two young quarterbacks gets snatched up on waivers, the other will almost certainly be invited back to Buffalo's practice squad.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Davis Webb: Strong showing Friday
Webb completed 11 of 16 passes for 90 yards and a touchdown and a 103.6 rating in Friday's preseason win over the Lions. He did not throw an interception and ran two times for 26 yards.
Look out Josh Allen, Webb is coming for your job! Kidding aside, Webb is in a tight competition for the No. 3 role (if the Bills elect to keep three quarterbacks) with second-year man Jake Fromm, who was less effective than Webb on Friday with a 74.2 rating while throwing no TD passes and taking two sacks....

Bills' Davis Webb: Staying in Buffalo
Webb signed a reserve/future contract with the Bills on Tuesday.
Webb shuffled between active roster and practice squad all season but never took a regular-season snap. It's the second-straight season that Webb has signed a reserve/future contract with the Bills. Veteran Matt Barkley is heading into free agency, potentially leaving Josh Allen and Jake Fromm as the only other quarterbacks on the roster.... See More ... See Less
