  • Giants' Dexter Lawrence: Enjoys All-Pro campaign in 2023

    Lawrence finished the regular season with 53 tackles (32 solo), including 4.5 sacks, over 16 games. Lawrence didn't stuff the stat sheet, and his numbers were lower across the board in comparison to his 2022 campaign, but his impact on New York's defense continued to be as enormous as his physical stature. For his excellence, the fifth-year nose tackle earned his second straight selection as both a Pro Bowler and an AP Second Team All-Pro. The Giants appear wise to have inked Lawrence to a four-year extension last May, as he's set to anchor the team's defensive front for years to come.

  • Giants' Dexter Lawrence: Practices in limited fashion

    Lawrence (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. Lawrence was able to play through his hamstring issue in Week 16, but this injury still seems to be hindering the 26-year-old. Despite being able to up his participation Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session, the All-Pro defensive tackle could very well carry an injury designation into the weekend if he doesn't practice in full Friday.

  • Giants' Dexter Lawrence: Sidelined to start week

    Lawrence (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Lawrence has been dealing with a lingering hamstring issue for multiple weeks now but has played in each of the Giants' last two games, which bodes well for his potential availability Week 16 against the Eagles. However, the 2019 first-round selection will likely need to get back on the practice field ahead of Monday's game to suit up for the contest.

  • Giants' Dexter Lawrence: Won't report for start of OTAs

    Lawrence isn't expected to report for the beginning of the Giants' offseason program Monday as he seeks a resolution to his contract situation, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. Lawrence is coming off a season-high 7.5 sacks and his first Pro Bowl appearance in 2022, but he remains without a long-term deal. The Giants selected him in the first round of the NFL Draft in 2019 and have watched him blossom into one of the league's top defensive tackles, and Lawrence is now entering his fifth season with the club. General manager Joe Schoen said in early March that the team was in talks with Lawrence about a potential long-term deal, per Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston, but it's unclear where that discussion currently stands.

  • Giants' Dexter Lawrence: Comes up big Sunday

    Lawrence registered five tackles, including two sacks, along with three quarterback hits in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Bears.
