  • Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Lands on IR

    The Giants placed Casillas (neck) on injured reserve Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

    Casillas' neck stinger worsened during the Giants' Thanksgiving Day loss to the Redskins, then sidelined him for the Week 13 loss to the Raiders. With Casillas evidently not making much notable progress in recent days, the Giants decided to shut the linebacker down for the season. He'll finish the 2017 campaign with 35 tackles (25 solo) and one pass breakup across eight contests. Casillas will become a free agent this offseason and may have played his last game with the Giants.

  • Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Out for Sunday's game

    Casillas (neck/wrist) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    Casillas was able to play through a neck stinger over the past three games, but he may have suffered a setback in the Thanksgiving Day loss to the Redskins, as he was unable to practice in any capacity this week. The veteran linebacker has 35 tackles (25 solo) through eight games.

  • Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Suiting up on Thanksgiving

    Casillas (neck) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Redskins.

    Casillas was a late addition to the injury report Wednesday, but he was still able to practice fully. Thus, it is not surprising that he will be active for Thursday's game. With the Giants dealing with several injuries at linebacker, the veteran could be in line for a heavy workload.

  • Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Questionable for Thursday

    Casillas (neck) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Redskins.

    Casillas didn't crop up on the injury report until Wednesday and was listed as a full participant in the Giants' estimate of what his level of involvement would have been had the team held practice, so it seems likely he'll suit up Thursday. He should be in store for a near-every down role in the Week 12 matchup, but with no more than six tackles in any game this season, Casillas doesn't carry much IDP appeal.

  • Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Suiting up Sunday

    Casillas (neck) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

    The Giants had already ruled out three linebackers (Keenan Robinson, B.J. Goodson and Devon Kennard) due to injury earlier this week, so Casillas' return from a three-game absence comes at a fortunate time. Despite seeing hefty snap counts in his first five appearances of the season, Casillas only managed 19 tackles and no turnovers, limiting his IDP utility as a result.

  • Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Questionable for Sunday

    Casillas (neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

    A Casillas return this week would be quite timely, since five of the Giants' top six linebackers are dealing with injuries. The 30-year-old linebacker didn't produce particularly impressive numbers even at full health, posting no more than five tackles in any contest.

  • Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Ruled out for Sunday

    Casillas (neck) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Rams, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

    Casillas wasn't able to participate in practice at full speed this week, so this doesn't come as a complete surprise. Since neck injuries have tricky recovery periods, the veteran linebacker will likely need a full practice before he's truly ready to get back on the field. Keenan Robinson will continue seeing a hefty workload in Casillas' absence.

  • Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Set to sit out Sunday

    Casillas (neck) won't suit up for Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

    Casillas will miss his second straight week with the injury after he left early in Week 5 against the Chargers. The Giants will head into a bye after Sunday's contest, so there's a decent chance Casillas will be ready to go ahead of the team's subsequent matchup Nov. 5 against the Rams.

  • Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Skips practice Thursday

    Casillas (neck) was held out of Thursday's practice.

    Casillas is still recovering from a nerve issue in his neck and could be in line to miss a second straight game, given that he has yet to put in a full practice since suffering the injury in the Giants' Week 5 loss to the Chargers. Keenan Robinson would likely start at weak-side linebacker if Casillas is unable to play Sunday against the Seahawks.

  • Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Ruled out for Sunday

    Casillas (neck) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

    This will be the first game this season that Casillas misses, and his next opportunity to suit up will be Week 7 against the Seahawks. He has recorded 19 tackles (16 solo) over the first five games, and a quick return would help the Giants make up for an injury-riddled offensive unit. Keenan Robinson will continue to fill in during Casillas' absence.

  • Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Day-to-day with burner

    Casillas is considered day-to-day with a nerve injury, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

    The injury is described as a burner, which is a common nerve injury, so it doesn't like there is much concern surrounding Casillas. However, the Giants will likely exercise caution with something that could potentially turn serious. Expect another update on the linebacker when the team releases an official injury report later this week.

  • Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Available Sunday

    Casillas (ankle/wrist) is listed as active Sunday in Tampa Bay.

    Held out of practice all week, Casillas' experience in the system was likely enough to warrant Week 4 availability. On the season, the weakside linebacker has notched 13 tackles (10 solo) in three games.

  • Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Questionable to play

    Casillas (ankle/wrist) is questionable to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

    Casillas' chances of playing don't look good after he missed an entire week of practice with a combination of ankle and wrist injuries. Keenan Robinson would likely get the start at OLB if he's ultimately ruled out.
