11/20/17RBOrleans DarkwaHamstringQUESTIONABLEDarkwa (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant at Tuesday's practice.

Darkwa's presence on the field in any capacity two days after Sunday's overtime win over the Chiefs should be taken as a positive sign, so his hamstring injury doesn't look like anything that will impact his availability for the Thanksgiving Day game against the Redskins. Even so, Darkwa could carry an injury designation for the Week 12 contest due to the quick turnaround between games, with clarity on that front likely to come following the Giants' final practice of the week Wednesday.

11/20/17LBB.J. GoodsonAnkleQUESTIONABLEGoodson (ankle) was absent from practice Tuesday.

Goodson's absence from the Giants' first official practice of the week doesn't seemingly portend his return to action Thursday against the Redskins. The linebacker has missed three straight games with the ankle injury, resulting in Calvin Munson (quadriceps) picking up extended snaps at middle linebacker.

11/20/17DLDamon HarrisonAnkleQUESTIONABLEHarrison (ankle) did not participate in Monday's walkthrough, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Harrison played in Sunday's victory over the Chiefs after spending the previous week on the injury report. While his status for Thursday's Thanksgiving game against the Redskins is unclear given his lack of practice participation Monday, the team could just be opting to give the 28-year-old time to recover. He recorded five tackles (three solo) to go along with his third interception of the season Sunday.

11/20/17DLJason Pierre-PaulKneeQUESTIONABLEPierre-Paul (shoulder) will play Sunday against the 49ers, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Pierre-Paul has been inconsistent this season, but his average of 4.5 tackles per game is good for a defensive end. Still, fantasy owners would likely appreciate a surge of sacks from Pierre-Paul, and he'll have a good opportunity to do that against 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard, who has been sacked on nine percent of his dropbacks, ranking 28th in the league.

11/20/17WRSterling ShepardIllnessQUESTIONABLEThe Giants officially listed Shepard as a non-participant in Tuesday's practice, Jordan Raanan of reports.

According to Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York, Giants head coach Ben McAdoo relayed that Shepard, who sat out Sunday's win over the Chiefs while battling a migraine, is still "not feeling well," a discouraging sign as the Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Redskins approaches. Trainers are set to reevaluate Shepard on Tuesday to determine the possible reasons behind his migraines, but the team won't make an official ruling on his status for Thursday's game until after Wednesday's practice. Roger Lewis and Tavarres King would lead the Giants' receiving corps for a second straight week if Shepard can't go.

11/20/17LBKelvin SheppardGroinQUESTIONABLESheppard (groin) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Sheppard has only played in one game this season, logging 26 defensive snaps and accruing six tackles (five solo). However, this was while the Giants' linebacker unit was injury plagued, so even if he was healthy, the eighth-year pro likely wouldn't play much outside of special teams.

11/20/17DLDalvin TomlinsonAnkleQUESTIONABLEThe Giants selected Tomlinson in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 55th overall.

With Johnathan Hankins on the way out, the Giants had a need for a big defensive tackle. Tomlinson is certainly that at 6-foot-3, 310 pounds, but he also did well with his athletic testing at the Combine. He likely won't be an IDP factor, but Tomlinson should be a good replacement for Hankins as a run stopper.

11/19/17DLOlivier VernonShoulderQUESTIONABLEVernon is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chiefs with a shoulder injury, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

The Giants can ill afford to be without Vernon with middle linebacker B.J. Goodson (ankle) already inactive Sunday. Kerry Wynn and Avery Moss are likely to step in at defensive end if he cannot return.

11/11/17DLCap CapiHamstringQUESTIONABLECapi (hamstring) was waived off the Giants' injured reserve Friday per the NFL's transaction log.

Capi suffered a hamstring injury in Week 7 and was subsequently waived by the team. He reverted to to the Giants' IR after he cleared waivers, but he and the team have since reached an injury settlement. Capi is now free to find a new opportunity once his health allows him to do so.

10/17/17DBMichael HunterHamstringQUESTIONABLEHunter, who suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday's game against the Broncos, was waived/injured by the Giants on Tuesday.

Hunter was waived in order to create a roster spot for Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie, who is returning from his indefinite suspension this week. The cornerback likely will end up on the Giants' injured reserve as soon as he clears waivers.

01/26/17LBUani' UngaUndisclosedQUESTIONABLE'Unga (undisclosed) was waived with an injury designation Wednesday, reports.

'Unga, a one-time starter for the Giants back in 2015, spent the entire season on injured reserve with an unknown injury. He'll need to get healthy in order to land another contract.
