Giants' Olivier Vernon: Recovers fumble in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vernon recorded three tackles (one solo) and a fumble recovery across 58 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Redskins.

Vernon trailed only B.J. Goodson in defensive snaps amongst the linebacking corps Sunday and is averaging a little over 58 snaps per game since his return to the field.

Giants' Olivier Vernon: Notches sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vernon had two tackles and a sack in Thursday's 34-13 loss to the Eagles, his first game back from a preseason ankle injury.

Vernon is the team's best edge rusher, so his presence is important to the defense. The 27-year-old was able to play 54 of 71 defensive snaps in his season debut.

Giants' Olivier Vernon: Cleared for Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vernon (ankle) doesn't have a designation on the Giants' final injury report for Thursday's game against the Eagles.

Vernon was a limited practice participant throughout the week and will now make his first appearance in a game this season. The Giants have sorely missed their top edge defender, notching just six sacks in five games while allowing 4.6 yards per carry and 124 rushing yards per contest. It won't come as any surprise if Vernon is eased into action on a restricted snap count.

Giants' Olivier Vernon: Limited in practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vernon (ankle) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice. He took part in individual drills during the portion of the session that was available to the media, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Vernon's involvement in the Giants' first session of the week is an encouraging sign, but he may need to put in a full workout Wednesday to have a realistic shot at making his season debut Thursday against the Eagles. Whenever he's deemed ready to go, Vernon will step into a starting role at outside linebacker, which could translate to reduced snaps for the likes of Lorenzo Carter and Connor Barwin.

Giants' Olivier Vernon: Ruled out yet again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vernon (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Coach Pat Shurmur said he's optimistic Vernon will be ready for a Thursday game against the Eagles in Week 6, but it needs to be noted that Shurmur said the same thing about Week 5 earlier this week. The Giants will have to play without their top pass rusher for a fifth time in as many games this season.
