Giants' Josiah Tauaefa: Puts in full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauaefa (knee) was a full practice participant Tuesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Tauaefa began the week as a limited participant due to the knee issue, but a return to full participation puts him on track to play Thursday against New England. Tae Davis (concussion) and Alec Ogletree (hamstring) also had no limitations, which should keep Tauaefa in a reserve role this week.

Giants' Josiah Tauaefa: Limited to begin week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauaefa (knee) is listed as a limited participant in Monday's estimated practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Tauaefa picked up a knee injury during Week 5's loss to the Vikings, and his status for Thursday's tilt against New England appears up in the air. If the undrafted rookie is able to suit up versus the Patriots, he could be in line for notable snaps on defense with Lorenzo Carter (neck) and Alec Ogletree (hamstring) also nursing injuries.

Giants' Josiah Tauaefa: May have immediate starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauaefa may start at inside linebacker for Sunday's game versus the Vikings, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

After Ryan Connelly tore his ACL and was ruled out for the season, the Giants promoted Tauaefa from the practice squad. The undrafted rookie is competing with Nate Stupar for a starting role alongside David Mayo right away since Alec Ogletree (hamstring) and Tae Davis (concussion) have been ruled out.

Giants' Josiah Tauaefa: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauaefa was activated from the practice squad Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Tauaefa led the Giants in tackles over the preseason with 16 total to go with a sack and a fumble recovery. At Texas-San Antonio, he recorded 257 total tackles and 11.5 sacks over three seasons. Tauaefa will likely play a depth role in New York's linebacking corps moving forward.
