  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Gets one touch in Week 2

    Brightwell rushed once for 14 yards and was not targeted in the passing game during a 19-16 victory versus the Panthers on Sunday. Brightwell was in on only one offensive snap in the contest, but he made the most of it with a 14-yard rush in a third-and-one situation in the fourth quarter. The carry moved New York past midfield and helped set up Graham Gano's game-deciding 56-yard field goal. In addition to the one carry, Brightwell logged 17 snaps on special teams, which is where he figures to make most of his impact this season.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Full participant Wednesday

    Brightwell (undisclosed) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Brightwell was sidelined for the Giants' second preseason contest but returned to action for the finale and will be good to go for the regular-season opener. The second-year return man is expected to operate as a depth running back behind Saquon Barkley and Matt Breida, but he'll get most of his snaps on special teams.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Won't play against Bengals

    Brightwell won't play in Sunday's preseason matchup against the Bengals, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. Both Brightwell and Matt Breida (undisclosed) will be held out against Cincinnati, so Antonio Williams and Jashaun Corbin should have increased opportunities in the Giants' backfield. Brightwell will try to return for the team's final game of the preseason Aug. 28 against the Jets.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Could get big opportunity Thursday

    Brightwell figures to see plenty of action in Thursday's preseason opener versus New England, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. No. 2 running back Matt Breida is dealing with an undisclosed injury and isn't expected to play Thursday, and Saquon Barkley will likely see very limited snaps. That should leave lots of room for youngsters Antonio Williams, Jashaun Corbin and Brightwell to show off their skills. Brightwell was listed as the third-string running back on the Giants' first unofficial depth chart, but Williams has more often been receiving those reps during camp. Only one of Brightwell, Williams and Corbin may make the 53-man roster.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Participates in minicamp

    Brightwell (neck) was a participant in the Giants' voluntary minicamp Wednesday. Brightwell ended last season on IR after suffering a neck injury in Week 15 against the Cowboys. The 2021 sixth-round selection saw little work on offense during his rookie campaign, getting one carry for four yards and one reception on one target for six yards in 13 games. Instead Brightwell was a consistent contributor on special teams, a role he'll likely continue this upcoming season.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Placed on injured reserve

    Brightwell (neck) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Brightwell sustained a neck injury in Week 15 and hadn't returned to practice since then. With just two games remaining in the regular season, he'll be unable to return to the 2021 campaign. The 2021 sixth-rounder appeared in 13 games during his rookie season but played primarily on special teams.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Unavailable Sunday

    Brightwell (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Brightwell suffered the neck injury last week against the Cowboys and will be sidelined for at least one game. Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Devontae Booker are the only other running backs on the active roster, so the Giants could add a back from the practice squad for depth purposes this weekend.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: No practice Wednesday

    Brightwell (neck) is not participating in Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Brightwell suffered a neck injury in the first half of Sunday's loss to the Cowboys and did not retake the field. The special-teams contributor will have two more chances to practice ahead of Week 16's road matchup against the Eagles.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Suffers neck injury

    Brightwell is questionable to return after suffering a neck injury in Sunday's game against Dallas, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Brightwell suffered the injury in the first half on a special teams play. He has recorded only one rushing attempt and one reception across 12 games this season, so his absence isn't likely to have a major effect on the Giants' offense.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Returns from COVID list

    Brightwell was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Dan Duggan of The Athletic confirms that Brightwell actually tested positive for COVID-19, but the rookie running back has evidently recovered. If any lingering effects of the virus don't prevent Brightwell from suiting up Monday in Tampa Bay, his role will depend on the health of Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Devontae Booker (hip), who are both well above Brightwell in New York's backfield pecking order when healthy.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Still on COVID-19 list

    Brightwell (undisclosed) remains on the reserve/COVID list as of Sunday. Brightwell was among a number of Giants players and personnel to enter the COVID-19 protocol this week, and while he was listed as questionable Sunday against the Raiders, the team was unable to activate him Saturday, according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic. With Saquon Barkley (ankle) again inactive, the Giants were left with Devontae Booker, Elijhaa Penny and Cullen Gillaspia out of the backfield for Week 9. Booker ended up injuring his hip during Sunday's 23-16 loss, so if Brightwell can get back to the active roster in the near future he could be a candidate to get some touches on game days.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Officially questionable

    Brightwell (undisclosed) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Raiders. Brightwell missed Thursday's and Friday's practice after landing in COVID-19 protocol. If he is ultimately cleared ahead of Sunday's game, he will be expected to provide depth in the backfield behind Devontae Booker and Elijhaa Penny as well as contribute on special teams.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: In COVID-19 protocol

    Brightwell didn't practice Thursday and is in the COVID-19 protocol, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Brightwell was seemingly one of several Giants players and test members that tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week, but following subsequent retesting, only running backs coach Burton Burns has had his positive result confirmed. Meanwhile, running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) and safety Xavier McKinney were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, though New York seemingly has hope that both will be cleared upon further follow-up testing. Brightwell's ability to avoid landing on the list thus far suggests the Giants have less concern about his status than Barkley's or McKinney's, but Brightwell's absence from practice suggests he's not completely out of the woods yet. Assuming Brightwell is cleared ahead of Sunday's game against the Raiders, he'll likely be limited to a special-teams role behind Devontae Booker and Elijhaa Penny, the Giants' preferred options for backfield work while Barkley is on the mend from the ankle injury.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: No usage in Week 8

    Brightwell did not play an offensive snap during Monday's 20-17 loss against the Chiefs. Brightwell has yet to record an offensive snap since the Giants' Week 3 loss against the Falcons. The 2021 sixth-round pick has failed to make a name in the Giants' rushing attack despite an injury to All-Pro running back Saquon Barkley (ankle). In Barkley's absence the team has relied exclusively on running backs Devontae Booker and Elijhaa Penny. Monday's contest saw only Booker register any carries for the Giants, totaling 60 yards on 15 attempts.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Not part of offense in loss

    Brightwell failed to record an offensive snap in Sunday's 44-20 loss to the Cowboys. Brightwell's 16 special teams snaps represented his only action in Week 5. The rookie's lack of usage in the running game was surprising considering teammate Saquon Barkley exited the game in the first quarter with an ankle injury. Instead, it was Devontae Booker and Elijhaa Penny who carried the load after Barkley's departure. Booker, the team's No. 2 back, rushed 16 times while Penny, listed as a fullback, finished the game with just one carry. Brightwell could see a modest bump to his usage on offense with Barkley sidelined again, but it appears New York doesn't view the 23-year-old as a go-to option out of the backfield. The Giants take on the Rams in Week 6, and Brightwell should remain off the fantasy radar for that contest.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Not part of offense in Week 2

    Brightwell didn't record an offensive snap during Thursday's contest against Washington. Brightwell played eight offensive snaps and caught his only target for six yards in Week 1, but he wasn't part of the offense in Week 2. The 22-year-old is not a viable fantasy option as long as Saquon Barkley and Devontae Booker are healthy.

  • Giants' Gary Brightwell: Back at practice

    Brightwell (undisclosed) is practicing Tuesday after being sidelined early in training camp, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. It's unclear what's kept the rookie sixth-round pick off the field, but he's returned to practice after missing the first preseason game. The next few weeks of the preseason could be big for Brightwell, who's competing with Corey Clement for No. 3 on the depth chart behind Saquon Barkley (knee) and Devontae Booker.
