Rudolph is positioned for an expanded role in Sunday's season finale against the Redskins, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
The undrafted rookie played a career-high 57 snaps on offense in last week's 23-0 loss to the Cardinals, but he only caught one pass for six yards on two targets. While Rudolph figures to get a few more chances with Sterling Shepard (neck) out of the lineup this week, Roger Lewis is still the best bet for production among the Giants' pass catchers, coming off three straight games with at least 10 targets and four catches. Eli Manning could be in for a long day, as Evan Engram (ribs) and Tavarres King (concussion) also have been ruled out.
Rudolph (hamstring) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.
Rudolph has missed the Giants' last three games with the injury, but it looks as though he's trending toward playing Sunday against the Cardinals. With Tavarres King (concussion) still in the NFL's protocol for head injuries, Rudolph could be in line for a role in three-wideout sets, but he's unlikely to rank as a go-to target for quarterback Eli Manning.
Rudolph (hamstring) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Although Rudolph rarely hears his number called on offense, the Giants will be lacking depth at wideout with him, since they have just four healthy receivers for Sunday's game. This will be the third consecutive game Rudolph misses.
Rudolph (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Rudolph has missed the last two games with this injury, but he likely wouldn't have logged extended snaps on offense even if he had been active for those contests. If Rudolph is cleared to play in the Week 15 matchup, the Giants could be forced to play him more on offense out of necessity in the event No. 2 wideout Roger Lewis (ankle), who is also listed as questionable for Sunday, ends up being inactive for the contest.
