  • Giants' D.J. Davidson: Exits with injury Thursday

    Davidson (elbow) is questionable to return to Thursday Night Football versus San Francisco, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

    Davidson logged one tackle Thursday before he went down with an elbow injury during the third quarter. The 26-year-old also totaled just one tackle while making his season debut Week 2 against Arizona. Davidson's absence will leave the Giants with just four available defensive linemen between A'Shawn Robinson, Dexter Lawrence, Leonard Williams and Rakeem Nunez-Roches.

  • Giants' D.J. Davidson: Taken off injury report

    Davidson (knee) was not listed on the Giants' injury report Wednesday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

    Davidson seems to be good to go for Sunday's game against the Cardinals after missing the season opener with a knee injury. The 2022 fifth-round pick will likely serve as a rotational player on the line alongside Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Jordon Riley.

  • Giants' D.J. Davidson: Unavailable Sunday

    Davidson (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

    Davidson passed a physical in mid-August and was activated from the active/PUP list, but he'll still be unavailable for Sunday's regular-season opener. He tore his ACL in October of 2022, and it's unclear when he'll make his 2023 debut.

  • Giants' D.J. Davidson: Passes physical, off PUP list

    Davidson (knee) passed his physical Monday and was activated from the active/PUP list by the Giants Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

    Davidson tore his ACL last October and was sidelined to begin training camp, but it appears he's healthy enough to return to practice. As a rookie last year, the fifth-round pick played just 40 defensive snaps across five games before suffering the season-ending injury.

  • Giants' D.J. Davidson: Lands on PUP list

    The Giants placed Davidson (knee) on the active/PUP list Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

    Davidson is still working his way back from a torn ACL suffered last October. The 2022 fifth-rounder played 40 defensive snaps as a rookie before his injury. Davidson will try to carve out a rotational role up front in his second season.

  • Giants' D.J. Davidson: Heads to injured reserve

    The Giants placed Davidson (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Davidson suffered a torn ACL during the third quarter in the team's London game against the Packers in Week 5, and he'll now head to IR and miss the rest of the 2022 campaign as a result. Through New York's first five contests, the 2022 fifth-round pick registered four tackles on 40 defensive snaps in that span. Dexter Lawrence and Justin Ellis are now the only remaining nose tackles on the Giants' active roster, but Henry Mondeaux and rookie Ryder Anderson are candidates for a promotion to the team's 53-man squad.

  • Giants' D.J. Davidson: Likely to miss time with MCL sprain

    Davidson suffered an MCL sprain during Sunday's 27-22 win over the Packers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    The 25-year-old was carted off the field in the fourth quarter during Sunday's contest versus Green Bay, and he's since been diagnosed with an MCL sprain and will likely miss time after further tests reveal the severity of the injury. While Davidson seems unlikely to suit up Sunday against the Ravens, Justin Ellis should see a spike is usage behind starter Dexter Lawrence for the time being.

  • Giants' D.J. Davidson: Carted off Sunday

    Davidson (ankle) is being carted off the field in Sunday's contest against Green Bay, Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports reports.

    Davidson was carted off the field during the fourth quarter of Sunday's matchup after suffering an ankle injury, but was able to walk to the cart. Dexter Lawrence and Justin Ellis will continue to serve as New York's primary nose tackles.

  • Giants' D.J. Davidson: In battle for roster spot

    Davidson is among a group of Giants defensive linemen vying for a spot on the initial 53-man roster, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

    Davidson, Nick Williams, Justin Ellis and Jalyn Holmes appear to be in competition for three roster spots along the defensive line. Duggan speculates Davidson's status as a fifth-round pick could give him an edge, though the Arizona State product has had some rough moments in camp. Davidson also limped off the field in Sunday's preseason contest against Cincinnati, but he participated in one-on-ones in joint practice with the Jets on Thursday, per Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic.

  • Giants' D.J. Davidson: New York adds in fifth round

    The Giants selected Davidson in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 147th overall.

    Davidson (6-foot-3, 327 pounds) is a big two-gap tackle out of Arizona State, one who figures to compete for playing time at the nose tackle position for the Giants. He's unlikely to show up on the box score all that much, but Davidson might help keep the Giants linebackers clean from blockers.
