Position Listing
Ryan Murphy
News
Murphy (lower body) is unlikely to play in the Giants' preseason opener Friday against the Steelers, ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports.

Murphy missed Wednesday's practice with a lower-body injury. The severity of which isn't clear, however, so it's uncertain when he could return.

Injury
Leg - Questionable for Week 1 at Dallas
Geno Smith
News
Smith (knee-ACL) was cleared for the start of training camp on Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Smith said he was fully healthy a couple months ago but he has only just been cleared to practice fully. Smith is expected to be the top backup to starting QB Eli Manning now that he's back on the field.

Chris Casher

DaShaun Amos
No Updates
Bobby Richardson
News
Richardson and the Giants agreed to a contract Tuesday.

Richardson has been unable to make a roster since playing in 15 games with the Saints in 2015. He was most recently waived by the Broncos in May. The Giants are dealing with a variety of injuries on the defensive line, so Richardson should see a healthy workload at practice right away. However, his still figures to be a long shot for making the final roster.

Michael Hunter
No Updates
Duke Ihenacho
News
Ihenacho will be sidelined for the Giants' preseason opener due to a hamstring injury, Art Stapleton of USA Today reports.

After logging 10 starts with the Redskins in 2016, Ihenacho signed with the Giants in May. He presumably sustained the injury at a recent practice. There is no current timetable for his return. The 28-year-old is competing for a role providing depth at free safety, so it will be advantageous for him to return sooner than later.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 1 at Dallas
Kerry Wynn
News
Wynn signed his exclusive rights tender with the Giants on Tuesday, Dan Duggan of NJ Advanced Media reports.

Wynn visited the Patriots last week but will ultimately remain in the Big Apple, where he has spent his entire three-year career, playing mainly in a special teams role. Last season, he recorded 12 tackles and 0.5 sacks through 14 games with the Giants.

Dalvin Tomlinson
News
The 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.

Matt LaCosse
News
Lacosse (knee) resigned with the Giants on Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Lacosse missed the entirety of last season with a torn ACL and only played in two games during his 2015 rookie season, so he has much to prove before becoming a factor in the Giants offense.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 1 at Dallas
Paul Perkins
News
Perkins struggled in the preseason opener Friday against the Steelers, gaining only three yards on five carries without a target in the passing game.

Perkins has been impressing in camp, so it's a shame that he wasn't able to carry that success over in a game situation. This performance does nothing to change the second-year running back's status as the New York's starter, especially since many of the team's key offensive cogs sat this one out entirely.

J.T. Thomas
News
The Giants activated Thomas (knee) from the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday.

Thomas, who suffered a torn ACL last season, was originally expected to be ready for the beginning of training camp. However, his recovery has taken a little longer than expected. Expect the Giants to ease him back into action.

Damon Harrison
News
Harrison had four solo tackles and one assist Sunday against the Packers.

Harrison proved to be a rock in the middle of the Giants defensive line and a nice source of tackles as an IDP. He had only 2.5 sacks, but 86 total tackles on the regular season.

Injury
General Soreness - Questionable for Week 1 at Dallas
Eli Apple
News
Apple (ankle) will not play during Monday's preseason game against the Browns, Dan Duggan of NJ Advance Media reports.

Apple, who sat out of Thursday's practice with an ankle injury, will miss Monday's game. The specifics of the injury are still unclear, though it's seemingly uncomfortable enough for him to avoid taking part in Monday's tilt.

Injury
Ankle - Out for Week 1 at Dallas
Shaun Draughn
News
Draughn (ankle) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday.

Draughn is returning from summer ankle surgery. The 29-year-old journeyman is competing for a roster spot, so his participation in training camp will be essential for his chances. Paul Perkins, Shane Vereen (leg), and rookie Wayne Gallman are all expected to make the team, so Draughn is mainly competing with Orleans Darkwa for the final roster spot.

Keeon Johnson
Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve
Will Tye
News
Tye may have to fight for a roster spot after the Giants selected Evan Engram in the first round of the draft, NJ.com's James Kratch reports.

The Giants' decision to select a tight end in the opening round came as no surprise, as Tye was one of the league's least productive starters at his position last season, hauling in 48 of 70 targets for only 395 yards (8.2 yards per catch) and a touchdown in 16 games (10 starts). The team previously signed hybrid fullback/tight end Rhett Ellison, who along with Engram is a lock to make the final roster. Tye may thus find himself competing with Matt Lacosse (knee) and 2016 sixth-rounder Jerell Adams for what likely would be one or two roster spots. Tye re-signed on a modest one-year, $615,000 contract in February.

Jarron Jones
No Updates
Orleans Darkwa
News
Darkwa will re-sign with the Giants on a one-year deal Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Darkwa was expected to hit the free agent market after not receiving a tender from the Giants, but ultimately was brought back for another year. The fourth-year back recorded only 111 yards rushing on 30 carries during 10 games in 2016, but he was a contributor on special teams and should continue to see action in that role. Darkwa would be slated to move up the depth chart if fellow running backs Paul Perkins or Shane Vereen were to suffer injuries.

Owa Odighizuwa
News
Odighizuwa (hamstring) attended the first day of the Giants' offseason program Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

A little more than two weeks removed from indicating on Twitter that retirement was a possibility, Odighizuwa was among teammates Tuesday, lifting weights as the Giants kicked off a two-week period of strength, conditioning and rehabilitation. Apparently ready to continue his NFL career, he has a difficult path to playing time behind the likes of Jason Pierre-Paul (groin) and Olivier Vernon, hence Odighizuwa's meager share of defensive snaps (15.2 percent) last season.

Janoris Jenkins
News
Jenkins had only one assist against the Packers Sunday.

Jenkins wraps up a strong 2016 season after proving to be one of the top cover corners in the league. The Giants payed a heavy price for him in free agency, but so far he's been well worth it.

John Jerry
No Updates
Jordan Williams
No Updates
Odell Beckham
News
Beckham is expected to play in the Giants' second preseason game Monday night in Cleveland, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Beckham, who was held out of the preseason opener last week, is expected to play the first quarter and possibly into the second with the entire starting offense. Last year, he logged 16 snaps in in the second exhibition against the Bills and led the team with 22 receiving yards.

Evan Engram
News
Engram and Rhett Ellison have been splitting first-team snaps at training camp, with the rookie showing up most often during red-zone work and two-minute drills, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.

Engram is poised for an immediate role in passing situations, but it's unclear exactly how the snaps will be divided and how much the Giants' personnel at tight end will telegraph whether they are running or passing. Ellison falls on the other end of the spectrum at the position -- he's highly regarded as a blocker but only has 51 catches for 515 yards in 73 career games. The Giants have favored the passing game under coach Ben McAdoo, and the team's current personnel hints at a continuation of that approach, particularly if Engram shines early in the season. Even if the rookie gets regular playing time, there is a lot of competition for targets on a team featuring Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard and Shane Vereen.

Jalen Williams
Injury
Josh Banks

Chad Wheeler

Darian Thompson
News
Thompson is now healthy and likely to start at safety across from Landon Collins this season, the Giants' official site reports.

Thompson was supposed to be the Giants' starting free safety last season, but a foot injury limited the rookie to only two contests. Now healthy, Thompson is looking to make 2017 a bounce-back campaign after spending last season studying the defense on the sideline. However, backup Andrew Adams was impressive during OTAs and could give Thompson a run for his money during training camp.

Jason Pierre-Paul
News
Pierre-Paul underwent offseason surgery on his groin and abdomen to repair multiple injuries, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

Pierre-Paul is feeling better after recent surgery addressed four lingering injuries, but he remains uncertain about when he'll return to football activities. There's a chance he won't be ready in time for training camp, while the Giants may elect to proceed cautiously with their veteran defensive end since he's played just 20 total games throughout the past two seasons.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for Week 1 at Dallas
Brett Jones
No Updates
Ed Eagan
News
Eagan signed with the Giants on Friday, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

Eagan was signed Friday morning along with Canaan Severin to replace the newly-waived Keeon Johnson and Kevin Snead. Eagan is yet to appear in a regular season game since being signed as an undrafted free agent by the Cowboys in 2016.

Steven Daniels
News
Daniels and the Giants agreed to a contract Tuesday.

Daniels was most recently waived by the Eagles. The 24-year-old is not a likely candidate to make the final roster, but will look to make an impression during training camp.

Corin Brooks
No Updates
Roger Lewis
News
Lewis' charge for operating a vehicle while impaired was dismissed Monday, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

Lewis was arrested in June on the impaired driving charges, but after pleading not guilty and subsequently paying fines for driving in marked lanes and having tinted windows, the 23-year-old is back in good legal standing. That development not only figures to rule out any league discipline, but it should also help Lewis' chances of securing the Giants' No. 4 receiver role this season. In 13 games as an undrafted rookie, Lewis finished with seven catches for 97 yards and two touchdowns.

Andrew Adams
News
Adams was impressive during OTAs and could compete for the starting free safety position, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Safeties coach David Merritt said of the competition, "I'm going to be honest with you, you can sit here right now and say yes [it's Darian Thompson], but I can't sit here and take away from what Andrew Adams has done."

Adams notched 46 tackles, five passes defensed and one interception over 14 games last season as a replacement for Darian Thompson, who missed almost the entire year with a foot injury. However, with Thompson back to full health, it appears as if he is the favorite to claim the starting free safety role. While Adams is a dark horse, it's tough to rule out the 24-year-old completely, making this training camp battle quite intriguing.

Ishaq Williams
News
Williams was released by the Giants on Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

Williams was promoted to the Giants' active roster late last season, but he failed to make an impact with such a limited role. He may catch on with another practice squad elsewhere this offseason.

Robert Thomas
News
Thomas signed a one-year contract with the Giants on Tuesday, James Kratch of the New Jersey Advanced Media reports.

Thomas played in just eight games in 2016, seeing the field for 68 snaps. He recorded five tackles, including a sack, while flashing some decent pass rush potential. He'll have a chance to compete for a larger role with the team in 2017.

Davis Webb
News
Webb is expected to operate as the Giants' third-string quarterback during the upcoming season, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Webb was selected in the the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft but is expected to spend the upcoming season in a developmental role as the team's third quarterback, which will likely keep him inactive for most game days. Geno Smith and Josh Johnson are expected to battle for the backup job behind Eli Manning, with one of the two being let go prior to the season. The Giants consider Webb a player to develop for the future. The fact that he was a third-round pick essentially locks him into a roster spot.

Eli Manning
News
Head coach Ben McAdoo expects Manning to suit up and play in the Giants' second and third games of the preseason.

With preparation for the 2017 season in mind, Manning will receive his first handful of in-game reps Monday in Cleveland. However, his most extensive run will likely occur in preseason Week 3, when the Giants face off with the Jets on Saturday, Aug. 26. Once McAdoo feels good about Manning, the offense will be directed by some combination of Josh Johnson, Geno Smith and rookie Davis Webb.

Donte Deayon
No Updates
Canaan Severin
News
Severin signed with the Giants on Friday, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

Severin was most recently released by the Steelers after suffering from an undisclosed injury, and he found a new home with the Giants after they had both Keeon Johnson and Kevin Snead waived/injured. Severin will likely stick around with the team through training camp.

Adam Gettis

Uani' Unga
News
'Unga (undisclosed) was waived with an injury designation Wednesday, NJ.com 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.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 1 at Dallas
Dwayne Harris
News
Harris (upper body) is expected to sit out Monday's preseason matchup against the Browns, Dan Duggan of NJ Advance Media reports.

Harris, who was held out of Thursday's practice due to upper body soreness, continues to deal with the issue. While not believed to be serious, the fact he'll be sidelined Monday could be a cause for concern.

Injury
Upper Body - Questionable for Week 1 at Dallas
Mike Nugent
News
Nugent signed a contract with the Giants on Tuesday, Michael Rosen of the Giants' official site reports.

The Giants will bring aboard Nugent to provide some experienced competition in training camp for the lone other kicker on the roster, Aldrick Rosas. The 35-year-old Nugent owns an 80.8 percent career accuracy rate on field-goal attempts across 13 seasons with the Jets, Buccaneers, Cardinals and Bengals, but he saw his performance slip a bit in 2017. Nugent missed six of his 29 extra-point attempts, which ultimately earned him his walking papers from Cincinnati last December.

Stansly Maponga
News
The following players were ruled inactive for the Falcons in Week 17 against Carolina: cornerback Ricardo Allen, safety Charles Godfrey, running back Steven Jackson, defensive end Stansly Maponga, quarterback Sean Renfree, tackle Jonathan Scott and linebacker Tyler Starr.

Jackson entered this week as questionable after suffering a quadriceps injury against New Orleans in Week 16. Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman will share the load. Jackson could return to action in the postseason, if Atlanta defeat Carolina on Sunday.

Deontae Skinner
News
Skinner was signed by the Giants on Saturday, Art Stapleton of the Record reports.

Skinner figures to primarily spend his time on the special teams unit, but will also be a depth option at linebacker for the Giants.

Valentino Blake
News
Blake missed Wednesday's practice due to a back injury, James Kratch of NJ.com reports.

Blake -- who the Giants ultimately opted not to place on the Physically Unable to Perform list to begin training camp, despite earlier reports from head coach Ben McAdoo saying otherwise -- is dealing with an aggravation of the back injury that caused the team to consider placing him on the PUP list in the first place. It isn't clear when he'll be back in action.

Powe is dealing with a hamstring injury and is expected to be sidelined for Monday's preseason matchup against the Browns, Dan Duggan of NJ Advance Media reports.

Powe, who has yet to appear in an NFL game, will be sidelined with a hamstring injury Monday. During his senior season at California back in 2015, he appeared in 13 games, catching 47 passes for 560 yards and eight touchdowns.

Injury

Jay Bromley
News
Bromley (ankle) was activated from the PUP list on Sunday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Bromley underwent ankle surgery to help alleviate pain from bone spurs in his foot, but is now back to full strength. Look for Bromley to return to the practice field early this week, where he'll have to fight for a final roster spot, as he currently projects to be just a deep reserve on the Giants' defensive line.

Travis Rudolph

Wayne Gallman
News
Gallman signed his rookie deal for four years and $2.82 million with a $419,000 signing bonus Tuesday.

A tough, physical runner who rushed for 2,660 yards and 30 TDs at Clemson his last two years, Gallman has a good chance to open the year as Paul Perkins' backup.

Corbin Bryant
News
Bryant (elbow) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, James Kratch of NJ.com reports.

Bryant suffered his elbow injury on Monday and the Giants immediately began working out replacements for the defensive tackle. Look for Bobby Richardson to see some extra reps now that Bryant has been shut down for the year.

Injury
Elbow - Injured Reserve
Kevin Snead
News
Snead (leg) reverted to injured reserve Saturday.

Snead hasn't practiced in over a week due to an unspecified leg injury. The speedster is unlikely to come off IR through the end of the season unless he agrees to an injury settlement.

Injury
Leg - Injured Reserve
Jerome Lane
News
Lane was signed by the Giants on Thursday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Lane, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound receiver out of Akron, will be a longshot to make the Giants' final roster. The big-bodied wideout actually began his collegiate career as a linebacker, entering the league with just two years of receiving experience under his belt.

Mykkele Thompson
News
Thompson (quadriceps) reverted to injured reserve, Dan Duggan of NJ Advance Media reports.

Thompson is only dealing with a minor quadriceps injury, so an injury settlement is expected in the near future.

Injury
Quadriceps - Injured Reserve
Nat Berhe
News
Berhe (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Berhe was limited in practice throughout the week and likely could've played Sunday if the Giants needed him. New York is locked into the five seed for the playoffs and didn't need to force Berhe back before he's completely healthy. He appears to have a good chance at returning from his five week absence in the wildcard round of the playoffs next week.

Jonathan Casillas
News
Casillas had seven solo tackles and four assists Sunday against the Packers Sunday.

Casillas had a solid season as the team's starting weak side linebacker with 96 total tackles (62 solo, 34 assists), 1.5 sacks and eight passes defensed.

Robinson is currently going through the league's concussion protocol, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Shepard (ankle) was a full participant in Sunday's practice, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

While Shepard did make a return to practice to start last week, he also ended up sitting out Friday's preseason game against the Steelers. It appears, though, that the ankle injury is behind the young wideout, with Shepard saying that coaches cut him loose Sunday. With the Giants' next preseason game not until Aug. 21, it's possible Shepard could end up seeing some limited reps barring any setbacks in practice this week.

Landon Collins
News
Collins had six solo tackles, three assists, a sack and two passes defensed Sunday against the Packers.

He finished the regular season with a whopping 100 solo tackles and 25 assists, four sacks, five interceptions and a touchdown, making him easily the top IDP defensive back and a centerpiece of the Giants defense for 2017.

Shane Vereen
News
Vereen is expected to handle most of the Giants' snaps at running back on passing downs, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Vereen is pegged behind Paul Perkins on the depth chart at running back, but the veteran is rightfully considered the team's top receiver out of the backfield, given the aptitude he's showed in that area throughout his career. Furthermore, with the Giants sporting the same underwhelming offensive line as last season, coach Ben McAdoo has chosen to deploy a quick-release passing game so far in training camp, emphasizing screens and plays that get the ball out of quarterback Eli Manning's hands as soon as possible. Those play designs figure to benefit Vereen greatly, assuming he can stay healthy. Last season, the 28-year-old played just five games after tearing his triceps twice, but Vereen appears to be back to full speed after a lower-leg injury limited his involvement earlier in camp.

Kevin Norwood
News
Norwood (hip) cleared waivers and reverted to the Giants' injured reserve Tuesday, James Kratch of NJ Advance Media reports.

Norwood was not considered a likely candidate to make the final roster before sustaining the injury. He will remain on the team's IR for the remainder of the season unless the two parties reach an injury settlement.

Injury
Hip - Injured Reserve
Josh Johnson
News
Johnson completed 5-of-10 passes for 31 yards while adding eight yards on two rushes in Friday's preseason opener against the Steelers.

Johnson got the start with veteran Eli Manning sitting for this tuneup, but struggled in his four drives of action. He took three costly sacks, including a six-yard loss from Pittsburgh's 3-yard line. Geno Smith didn't do much with his opportunity, either, also failing to produce a touchdown while adding one interception. Johnson entered with a slight edge over the former Jet in the competition for the backup job, and this game likely didn't change that status quo with both failing to impress.

Jessamen Dunker
News
Dunker (foot) reverted to injured reserve Thursday.

Dunker was waived with an injury designation Wednesday due to the foot injury he suffered in the opening days of training camp.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for Week 1 at Dallas
Mark Herzlich
News
Herzlich (neck) did not participate in Tuesday's practice.

After only playing 15 defensive snaps in 14 games last season, Herzlich has been battling for a share of the snaps with Devon Kennard. If he cannot prove himself, though, he'll likely return to being a specialist.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for Week 1 at Dallas
Olivier Vernon
News
Vernon had two solo tackles, two assists and a half sack Sunday against the Lions.

The Giants defensive line took a hit with the loss of Jason Pierre-Paul, but Vernon is still a solid IDP option.

Michael Bowie
News
Bowie has been charged with misdemeanor domestic assault and battery, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Bowie will likely face discipline from both the team and the league.

Devin Taylor
News
Taylor missed a second consecutive practice Wednesday due to soreness in his lower leg, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports.

This doesn't sound like a serious issue in the slightest, so Taylor should be back in the fold sooner rather than later.

Injury
Lower Leg - Questionable for Week 1 at Dallas

Romeo Okwara
News
Okwara is having a strong camp and is pushing for a roster spot.

The Giants have a deep stable of pass-rushing ends, but Okwara, an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame, is playing his way into the rotation.

Eric Pinkins
News
Pinkins was waived by the Seahawks on Saturday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

The three-year vet struggled to make enough noise during his tenure in Seattle. Pinkins, 25, tallied just two tackles last season.

Khalid Abdullah
No Updates
Devon Kennard
News
Kennard (concussion) was not on the Giants' Wednesday injury report.

Kennard was able to play Sunday against the Ravens after heading into the weekend considered questionable. It looks like he'll be ready to play Week 7 versus the Rams.

Tavarres King
News
King (ankle) is unlikely to play in the Giants' preseason opener Friday against the Steelers, ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports.

King injured his ankle in the opening days of training camp and still hasn't returned to practice, so his absence Friday would come as no surprise.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 1 at Dallas
Jerell Adams
News
Adams (shoulder) is listed as inactive Sunday in Washington

After landing on the Giants' injury report Thursday, Adams closed out the week with back-to-back limited sessions. The preceding wasn't exactly enough to forecast inactive status in Week 17, but the offense will nonetheless roll with Will Tye as the obvious No. 1 tight end. Due to the team's liberal use of TEs, though, Larry Donnell will likely earn some snaps as well Sunday.

Shane Smith

Avery Moss
News
Moss left practice with a shoulder injury Tuesday.

The 2017 fifth-round pick is vying for a backup spot since Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon are destined for the starting defensive end positions. Moss will need to be healthy enough for preseason games in order to show he belongs on the 53-man roster.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for Week 1 at Dallas
Andrew Turzilli
News
Turzilli signed a contract with the Giants on Monday.

Turzilli takes the place of WR Kevin Norwood, who was recently waived with a hip injury. With the Giants, he'll likely be competing with five or six other players to fill the final slots on the wideout depth chart.

Justin Pugh
No Updates
Rhett Ellison
News
Ellison (calf) was cleared to practice at the beginning of training camp on Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Ellison was expected back for camp and he faced no hiccups in his recovery. He's likely near the tail end of the tight end depth chart and will need to beat out Matt LaCosse (knee) and Jerell Williams for a chance at a small role in the offense.

D.J. Fluker
No Updates
Aldrick Rosas
News
The Giants signed 35-year-old Mike Nugent to compete with Rosas, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.

Signed to a reserve/future contract in January, the 22-year-old Rosas was the only kicker on New York's roster throughout the offseason and into the start of training camp. The team likely hopes the youngster will display enough accuracy to beat out Nugent, a sub-par veteran who has never offered much from long range and missed six field goals and six extra points in only 13 games for Cincinnati last season.

Zak DeOssie
No Updates
B.J. Goodson
News
Goodson (back) returned to practice Thursday, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

Goodson was dealing with a sore back, which limited him on Tuesday and kept him from practicing Wednesday. His quick return suggests the injury was minor and isn't expected to limit him any further.

Calvin Munson
No Updates
Brandon Marshall
News
Marshall has been in communication with quarterback Eli Manning since the Giants' offseason program ended in hopes of easing his transition into the team's offense, ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports.

Marshall and Manning have been in touch through FaceTime, allowing the veteran receiver to clear up questions regarding things like timing and signals in New York's offense. The 33-year-old Marshall, who signed a two-year deal with the Giants this offseason, said he didn't start feeling comfortable in his new team's scheme until the last couple weeks of its offseason program. His continued work with Manning since then only figures to aid his acclimation process ahead of training camp. From there, Marshall will hope to provide a big-bodied target to complement the dynamic duo of Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
News
Rodgers-Cromartie (thigh) is questionable to return to Sunday's wild-card playoff game against the Packers.

Rodgers-Cromartie went down on the second play from scrimmage. Trevin Wade will see additional playing time unless he returns.

Injury
Thigh - Questionable for Week 1 at Dallas
