Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (back) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Penny appears to have fully recovered from a back injury sustained during Monday's win over the 49ers. The fullback is on track to suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Buccaneers, but is unlikely to play a notable role on the Giants' offense.

Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Nursing back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny would not have participated if the Giants held a practice Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

The Giants held a jog-through Wednesday, but Penny's back injury is evidently severe enough to indicate that he would not have participated if the team had practiced. The fullback's availability for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers appears to be in question.

Giants' Elijhaa Penny: One carry Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny ran the ball once for two yards in Monday's loss to the Falcons.

Penny only logged six offensive reps in the contest, but that ties his season-high in offensive action. His first carry of the year was nothing to note, and the fullback isn't likely to see an expanded role anytime soon.

Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Picked up by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny signed with the Giants on Tuesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Penny played 16 games for the Cardinals as a rookie, but spent the first part of his third season on Arizona's practice squad (as he did in 2016). The Giants' starting fullback, Shane Smith, struggled through two weeks and was subsequently waived Wednesday, so Penny will get a good look at the role. Still, Penny does not project to be fantasy relevant as he'll presumably be used more in a blocking role.

Cardinals' Elijhaa Penny: Changing positions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny is making the transition to fullback, H-back and tight end, Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.

Penny, who went undrafted out of Idaho in 2016, has spent his first two professional seasons at running back, where he racked up 124 yards and two scores on 31 rushes (4.0 YPC) in 2017. His transition to a blocking role could be a signal that Arizona's new coaching staff doesn't view him as a legitimate candidate for the backup job behind workhorse running back David Johnson. However, it could also be viewed as a lack of confidence in tight end Jermaine Gresham (Achilles) being ready for Week 1. Either way, Chase Edmonds, who the Cardinals plucked in the fourth round of this year's draft, now seems to be the preferred handcuff to Johnson in advance of 2018 fantasy drafts.
