  • Giants' Dane Belton: Will play Sunday

    Belton (shoulder) is active Sunday against the Commanders.

    Belton is expected to draw the start at free safety for the Giants on Sunday. The rookie's role has varied throughout the season, but his opportunities should increase as long as he remains healthy, with Xavier McKinney (hand) sidelined.

  • Giants' Dane Belton: Notches first career interception

    Belton tallied four tackles (two solo) and an interception in Sunday's Week 10 victory against the Texans.

    Belton got the start Sunday in place of the injured Xavier McKinney (hand), and he made the most of the opportunity with a big interception in the end zone as Houston was driving early in the fourth quarter. The pick was the first of Belton's NFL career and highlighted the nose for the ball he displayed in intercepting five passes for Iowa last season. Belton should be in line for extended run while McKinney remains out of action, which will be for at least three more weeks.

  • Giants' Dane Belton: Expected to start Sunday

    Belton is expected to start Sunday's contest against Houston in place of Xavier McKinney (hand), Jordan Raanan of reports.

    Belton has played a solid role in the Giants' secondary this season, but he'll likely see increased snaps while McKinney is on the reserve/NFI list. The rookie fourth-round pick has played more than 70 percent of the team's defensive snaps three times during the campaign, totaling 15 tackles and one pass defense during those contests.

  • Giants' Dane Belton: Full participant Wednesday

    Belton (collarbone) was listed as a full participant on Wednesday's injury report, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Belton missed the season opener after garnering a no-contact jersey all last week, but the rookie appears to be trending in the right direction ahead of Week 2. It's unclear what the 21-year-old's role will be when he's eventually available, but he may have to carve out a role on special teams before he cracks the defensive rotation.

    Belton's absence was expected after it was reported Saturday he was unlikely to play. The 21-year-old has yet to practice without a no-contact jersey since he suffered the injury. He'll work to make his NFL debut in Week 2 when the Giants host the Panthers.

  • Giants' Dane Belton: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Belton (collarbone) is not expected to play in Sunday's season opener against Tennessee, Jordan Raanan of reports.

    Belton is officially listed as questionable on the injury report, but he has yet to practice without a non-contact jersey, making it unlikely that he'll be available for Sunday's contest. As another indication of Belton's expected absence, the Giants activated safety Tony Jefferson from the practice squad Saturday. If he does indeed sit out Week 1, Belton could make his NFL debut in New York's home opener against Carolina next Sunday.
