09/21/18DBEli AppleGroinOUTApple (groin) was officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Apple was unable to practice Wednesday and Thursday after suffering the groin injury Sunday night against the Cowboys, so his forthcoming absence is unsurprising. B.W. Webb and Donte Deayon should see increased roles with Apple sidelined versus Houston.

09/21/18LBOlivier VernonAnkleOUTVernon (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Houston, Jordan Raanan of reports.

The Giants will play without their top pass rusher for a third consecutive game to open the season, leaving Connor Barwin (knee) and Lorenzo Carter to fill in at outside linebacker. With starting cornerback Eli Apple (groin) also ruled out, the Houston passing attack sees a favorable matchup become even more friendly.

Thompson, a 2016 third-round pick, played in all 16 games for the Giants in 2017, recording 61 total tackles and one interception. He cleared waivers when originally released on Sep. 1, but he may find an opportunity with another team should injuries arise once he's back at full health.

04/20/18DLJosh MauroSuspensionSUSPENDMauro has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2018 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Mauro, who remains eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games, could possibly have the suspension reduced if he chooses to appeal the decision. Assuming the suspension sticks, the Giants will now be approaching the 2018 season with even more concerns at defensive end, making it increasingly likely the team addresses the position via the upcoming draft.
