Jon Halapio: Declines practice squad offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio (Achilles) declined a practice squad offer from the Giants on Sunday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

The Giants cut Halapio amid roster trims and hoped to bring him back to the practice squad, but the veteran center appears to be looking for a fresh start. The fact that he recently logged a workout with the Texans is an indication that he's healthy. However, Halapio is just eight months removed from an Achilles tear, so teams may wait until he's logged a few more months of rehab to sign him.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Back with G-Men
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio (Achilles) signed a contract with the Giants on Wednesday.

Halapio was let go by the team this offseason after Giants failed to tender him a contract. The veteran is coming off a torn Achilles that he suffered in December of 2019, so it's not likely that he'll be ready to suit up for game action in 2020.

Jon Halapio: Hitting free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio (Achilles) wasn't tendered a contract by the Giants and is now an unrestricted free agent, Matt Lombardo of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The 28-year-old suffered a torn Achilles in the season finale and wouldn't be able to pass a physical, so the Giants opted not to tender him a contract as a restricted free agent. Halapio has no official timeline for his return but there's a chance he misses a significant chunk of the season, dampening his outlook as a free agent.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Tears Achilles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio suffered a torn Achilles in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Halapio was carted off the field during the game, so it was immediately apparent that the injury could be serious. The center is set to become a restricted free agent this offseason, so it will be interesting to see what becomes of Halapio with a long road of recovery ahead of him. For the time being, Spencer Pulley will slot in as the No. 1 center on the Giants depth chart.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Departs on cart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio was carted off the field during Sunday's game against the Eagles, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

With less than five minutes remaining in the game and a double-digit deficit in hand, the Giants lost their starting center. It's unclear exactly what forced Halapio out of the contest, but those details will likely surface following the game. The 28-year-old Halapio will be a restricted free agent in March.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Full participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio (hamstring) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.

Halapio missed Week 10 with a hamstring injury, but his status at Wednesday's practice suggests he'll be back at center for Sunday's contest in Chicago.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Ruled out for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Halapio will miss his first game of the season due to a hamstring injury. In his stead, longtime backup Spencer Pulley will serve as the Giants' starting center.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Status for Week 10 uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pat Shurmur said Thursday that Halapio (hamstring) is a "ways away" from retaking the field, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Shurmur's comments don't bode well for Halapio's chances of suiting up versus the Jets on Sunday. The sixth-year pro was unable to practice Wednesday, and he appears to be trending toward another "DNP" designation on Thursday's injury report. In the event that Halapio is forced to miss time, expect Spencer Pulley to draw the start at center.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Misses Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio (hamstring) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

This is a negative sign for Halapio's status for Sunday's shared home game against the Jets. If the sixth-year pro is unable to play, established backup Spencer Pulley will get the nod.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Cleared for activity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio (leg) recently indicated he's been medically cleared, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Halapio broke his leg in Week 2 of last season, but it seems he wrapped up his rehab well before the start of offseason workouts. The soon-to-be 28-year-old is the favorite to start at center for the Giants in advance of the 2019 regular season.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Signs tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio (lower leg) signed his exclusive rights free agent tender Friday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

The Giants extended the tender earlier this week and Halapio wasted little time putting pen to paper. The 27-year-old is expected to return to the field sometime this spring after missing most of 2018 with lower leg and ankle fractures.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Undergoes surgery Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio underwent surgery to repair fractures in his lower leg and ankle Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Halapio was placed on injured reserve Wednesday and jumped right into surgery. With that, the expectation is that Halapio will be ready for the start of the 2019 season.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio (lower leg) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Halapio suffered fractures to his lower leg and ankle during Week 2's matchup against the Cowboys. The starting center underwent surgery earlier this week, and will spend the remainder of the 2018 season on injured reserve. The loss of Halapio is a significant blow to the Giants' offensive line, and Evan Brown will likely step in as his replacement.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio broke his ankle in Sunday's game against the Cowboys and is sidelined for the remainder of the 2018 season, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Halapio exited Sunday's loss to Dallas with the injury and underwent X-rays. The fractured ankle is a blow to the Giants' offensive line. Evan Brown is the likely candidate to fill in at starter for the foreseeable future, with Halapio likely to get moved to injured reserve at some point in the coming weeks.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Injures leg Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio left Sunday's loss to Dallas early with a lower leg injury, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Halapio was taken to the locker room for X-rays but the results remain unclear. The injury could lead to an extended absence, and the team is hoping its starting center is able to return to action soon. Evan Brown is a likely candidate to start if Halapio misses time.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Halapio will get his first career start in Thursday's Week 12 tilt against the Redskins, Dan Duggan of NJ Advanced Media reports.

Halapio was brought up to the Giants' active roster in October and has operated as a backup for the team since then. His start Thursday is coming as a result of D.J. Fluker (toe) being doubtful for the game.

Giants' Jon Halapio: Signed off practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants will sign Halapio off their practice squad Wednesday, Dan Duggan of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Halapio will join the 53-man roster to provide some additional depth on the interior of the offensive line with Weston Richburg (concussion) at risk of missing Sunday's game against the Chargers. It's not expected that Halapio would be a candidate to start at center in that contest, as backup Brett Jones is the more likely player to enter the lineup in Richburg's stead if necessary. The 26-year-old Halapio, a sixth-round pick of the Patriots in 2014, has yet to make an NFL appearance.
