Haley did not practice Wednesday due to an illness, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
The specifics regarding Haley's illness are unclear at this time, but the backup defensive back should be considered day-to-day for now.
Haley defensed one pass in Friday's preseason game with the Bears.
Haley broke up a third-down pass attempt to force a Bears punt in the second quarter. He played a total of 25 snaps on defense and seems to be over the shoulder injury that cost him time earlier in the month.
Grant sustained a sprained shoulder during Thursday's practice, Matt Lombardo of the Star-Ledger reports.
Grant reportedly isn't expected to be sidelined for long. He'll look to get healthy and resume competing for snaps in New York's secondary as soon as possible.
Haley (concussion) got reps at nickel cornerback with the first-team defense at New York's June minicamp, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports.
Haley was the Giants' starting nickel cornerback from Week 14 on until sustaining a concussion against the Cowboys in the 2018 finale. In those games, the 23-year-old recorded 15 tackles (11 solo). Haley appeared in 10 games last season en route to racking up 33 total tackles and two pass breakups over 426 defensive snaps. The fact that Haley is still practicing as the starting nickel cornerback this spring obviously bodes well, but he could see competition from Julian Love, whom the Giants selected in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Haley is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys due to a concussion, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Haley, who has served as the Giants' starting nickle cornerback since Week 14, will not retake the field. Tony Lippett will benefit from an increase in snaps for the remainder of Sunday's season finale.
Haley is expected to start at nickel corner in Sunday's game versus the Redskins, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports.
Haley was promoted to the active roster less than two weeks ago, and Eli Apple's trade to the Saints will open a door in the secondary. It will be Haley's first career start, and he has only one NFL appearance on his resume -- seven total snaps against the Falcons in Week 7.
Haley was added to the Giants' 53-man roster Tuesday, Michael Eisen of Giants.com reports.
The former Penn State standout was signed as a rookie free agent May 10, and had spent the 2018 season to date with the Giants' practice squad. Haley could see tough competition for snaps since the Giants have quite a bit of depth at cornerback currently.
