  • Giants' Kaden Smith: Limited in practice again

    Smith (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    For the third week in a row, Smith is appearing on the Giants' injury report with a knee issue, but the Giants haven't suggested his availability for Sunday's game against the Falcons is in any jeopardy. That said, even if Smith suits up, he could be headed for a smaller role on offense if top tight end Evan Engram (calf) -- who practiced on a limited basis Thursday -- is able to make his season debut. Smith has served as the No. 2 tight end though New York's first two games, logging 44 and 45 percent snap shares in Weeks 1 and 2, respectively, while catching two balls for 24 yards between those contests.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Limited by ankle injury

    The Giants added Toney to their injury report Thursday, listing him as a limited participant in practice due to an ankle issue, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    The rookie receiver missed time in training camp with a hamstring injury, but he was cleared ahead of the season opener and has played in both of the Giants' first two games, logging 22 offensive snaps while recording two receptions for minus-2 yards. If Toney moves past the ankle injury ahead of Sunday's game against the Falcons, he'll likely have only a small role on offense.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Limited again at practice

    Engram (calf) was limited at practice Thursday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Engram has ramped up his activity level this week as he prepares for his potential season debut, logging capped sessions to date. He even served as the No. 1 tight end during drills Wednesday, implying the Giants are getting close to clearing him for game action. Friday's injury report could give some insight into whether Engram's return to play is near.

  • Giants' Kenny Golladay: Gets in limited practice

    Golladay (hip) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Even though Golladay went down as a limited participant for the second day in a row, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News notes that the wideout was much less active in the open portion of practice Thursday compared to Wednesday. Per Leonard, Golladay ran no routes and was standing off to the side for much of what the media observed. Golladay might have upped his activity behind closed doors, but his availability for Sunday's game against the Falcons appears somewhat unsettled nonetheless. The 27-year-old was notably limited to five games in 2020 with the Lions due to a hip injury, though head coach Joe Judge said Thursday that he doesn't believe Golladay's current hip issue is related to the previous one, according to Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York.

  • Giants' Saquon Barkley: Another limited practice

    Barkley (knee) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    The Giants seem to have a maintenance program set up for Barkley as he puts the torn ACL and MCL in his right knee further in the rearview mirror. According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, Barkley didn't take part in many drills during the open portion of Thursday's practice, but he did enough behind closed doors to earn a "limited" tag for the second day in a row. Even on a quick turnaround for the Giants' Week 2 game in Washington, Barkley didn't seem affected by his surgically-repaired knee, as he earned a typical 83-percent share of the offense snaps en route to 15 touches for 69 yards. The production hasn't arrived yet for Barkley, but he'll have a more friendly matchup this Sunday versus the Falcons, assuming he's out there.

  • Giants' Nick Gates: Injury could threaten career

    Gates requires another procedure to address his leg injury, one which coach Joe Judge said could potentially be career-ending, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    "We're confident [Gates will] be able to come back," Judge said, "but yes, it could be career-ending," per Vacchiano. The interior offensive lineman already underwent a procedure to address fractures in his fibula and tibia last week, but he has not had to return to a hospital and is in need of a follow-up surgery.

  • Giants' Shane Lemieux: Won't return this season

    Lemieux (knee) underwent surgery on his left patellar tendon Wednesday and is expected to miss the rest of the 2021 season. Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Lemieux landed on injured reserve last week after suffering the injury in the season opener, which will end up being his only game action of the season.

  • Giants' Logan Ryan: Logs limited session

    Ryan (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

    Ryan still has two chances to upgrade his practice activity ahead of Sunday's contest against the Falcons, so there's not yet a reason for real concern about his availability. With 17 total tackles over the Giants' first two games, Ryan is once again establishing himself as a productive IDP fantasy option.

  • Giants' Kaden Smith: Begins week as limited

    Smith (knee) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

    Smith has earned an elevated workload in the Giants' first two games of the campaign with Evan Engram (calf) sidelined, seeing a 44.6-percent share of the snaps on offense. But Smith has been targeted just two times on his way to two catches for 24 yards. With Engram returning to the practice field Wednesday as limited himself, Smith will revert to a much smaller snap count if the former is cleared for his season debut. In that event, Kyle Rudolph would serve as the No. 2 TE behind Engram.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Officially limited Wednesday

    Engram (calf) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

    Engram got back on the practice field this week, managing showings both Monday and Wednesday. In the first session, he was the second tight end in drills, while he bumped up to No. 1 in the second one, per Tom Rock of Newsday. Clearly, Engram is trending in the right direction to make his season debut Sunday against the Falcons, but there's a chance a decision on his availability comes down to the wire.

  • Giants' Kenny Golladay: Limited by hip injury

    Golladay was limited in practice Wednesday due to a hip injury, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

    Golladay was bothered by a hamstring injury throughout training camp, but he's been able to suit up for both of the Giants' contests to date, combining for seven catches (on 14 targets) for 102 yards. Now, a hip concern is impacting Golladay's practice reps. Fortunately for the fifth-year wide receiver, he has two more chances to get past the issue in advance of Sunday's game versus the Falcons.

  • Giants' Saquon Barkley: Limited in practice

    Barkley (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

    Barkley is on the injury report for a third straight week, despite playing 84 percent of the Giants' offensive snaps in last Thursday's loss to Washington. He seems to have recaptured a three-down role, and he'll get a better matchup this weekend against the 0-2 Falcons, assuming everything checks out with his surgically-repaired right knee. The Giants listed him as questionable for their first two games, even when it was clear he would be playing.
