Position Listing
Ryan Murphy
News
Murphy (lower body) played in Monday's preseason game against Cleveland.

Heading into his third NFL season, Murphy has yet to play a regular season snap. With Landon Collins and Darian Thompson manning the safety positions, Murphy will have to strive for a special-teams gunner position with the Giants.

Geno Smith
News
Smith will enter the season as the Giants' backup quarterback after Josh Johnson was released Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Smith and Johnson vied for the job throughout the offseason and preseason, with the latter even earning a start at one point. However, Smith must have proved the health of his right knee enough to earn the trust of the coaching staff. Although Eli Manning has started 199 consecutive regular-season games, Smith will now be called upon in garbage time or in the event of an injury. Rounding out the QB depth chart is 2017 second-round pick Davis Webb.

Michael Hunter
News
Hunter (concussion) was a full participant at Giants' practice Wednesday.

Hunter went down with a concussion during the Giants' second exhibition game. He appears to have recovered from the issue and is on track to provide depth at cornerback for Sunday night's season opener against the Cowboys.

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.

Paul Perkins
News
Perkins started Monday night, but rushed for only 10 yards on seven carries. He also caught both of his targets for 12 yards.

Perkins has not run well in his first two starts, but it's hard to evaluate because he's barely had any room to run, and the playcalling is so vanilla it's as if the defense knows it's coming. Both Shane Vereen and Orleans Darkwa had more success on fewer carries, but Vereen isn't an early-down back, and Darkwa is used largely on special teams. Still, if the Giants don't produce more on the ground, Darkwa, rookie Wayne Gallman or someone not yet on the roster could take Perkins' job.

Ross Cockrell
News
The Steelers traded Cockrell to the Giants in exchange for a conditional draft pick, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.

Cockrell wasn't seeming likely to make the final roster, so it's smart for the Steelers to get something in return, rather than release him. With the Giants, Cockrell will provide depth behind starters Janoris Jenkins and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

J.T. Thomas
News
Thomas is out for the remainder of Monday's game with a groin injury, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

The Giants came into the contest thinner than usual at linebacker so the team will have to reach deep into the roster to find a replacement. From the looks of it, Curtis Grant, who was promoted to the active roster just prior to the game, could be the guy to fill in.

Injury
Groin - Did Not Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 3 at Philadelphia
Damon Harrison
News
Harrison played Monday's preseason game against the Browns after dealing with body soreness, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

Harrison played in 20 of the 72 defensive snaps, which is what was expected for a high-caliber defensive tackle who's struggling with body aches. He posted a career-high 86 tackles and 2.5 sacks last season and should be ready to be the starter in Week 1.

Eli Apple
News
Apple (ankle) was able to fully participate in Wednesday's practice and appears on track to take the field Sunday night against the Cowboys.

Apple went down with an ankle injury in mid-August and has been slowed down by it since. However, he finally appears to be recovered from the issue. The 22-year-old recorded 51 tackles, one forced fumble, one interception and seven passes defended in his rookie season, and will look to improve on those numbers this year.

Keeon Johnson
Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve
Orleans Darkwa
News
Darkwa had three carries for 17 yards and one catch for three yards Monday night.

Paul Perkins was ineffective again, so Darkwa could see an opening to get more work, but he's been on the team for a while, and it's likely he'll remain in a change-of-pace/special teams role.

Cap Capi
News
The Jaguars placed defensive end Nordly Capi on the Active/non-football injury list on Tuesday, the team announced. Capi went undrafted out of Akron. 
Janoris Jenkins
News
Jenkins (ankle/hand) is expected to return for Week 3's matchup with the Eagles, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Jenkins was a surprise Monday inactive after practicing all week, as pre-game tests showed that the cornerback was not healthy enough to play. The good news now is that Jenkins' injury appears to have been a minor one. The Giants should give a more detailed update on Week 3's injury report Thursday, but the expectation is that Jenkins should be ready to go against Philadelphia on Sunday.

Injury
Ankle - Did Not Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 3 at Philadelphia
John Jerry
No Updates
Jordan Williams
News
Williams was waived by the Giants on Saturday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Williams totaled six tackles and one sack in four preseason games for the Giants, but ultimately didn't quite show enough to warrant a roster spot. The 24-year-old has bounced around a few teams' practice squads after going undrafted in 2015 and has yet to appear in an NFL game.

Odell Beckham
News
Beckham (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

Beckham hasn't completed a full session since sustaining a left high-ankle sprain in preseason Week 2, but he's now strung together appearances in three consecutive practices, sandwiched about active status Monday against the Lions. During his season debut, he took the field for 34 of the Giants' 56 offensive snaps en route to four catches (on five targets) for 36 yards. Logging a full practice by the end of the week would signify Beckham is back to full strength, but he's clearly not there yet.

Injury
Ankle - Limited Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 3 at Philadelphia
Evan Engram
News
Engram was placed in the NFL's concussion protocol, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Engram was nonetheless listed as a limited participant for Wednesday's practice, which is unusual for a player that was just placed in the concussion protocol. While no injury was reported after Monday's 24-10 loss to the Lions, the rookie tight end likely suffered his concussion at some point during the contest. Engram was one of the Giants' few bright spots in that game, catching four of seven targets for 49 yards and a score. Should he end up missing Sunday's game in Philadelphia, the Giants likely would turn to Jerell Adams or Shane Smith to fill in as the top pass-catching tight end. Starter Rhett Ellison primarily is used as a run blocker.

Injury
Concussion - Limited Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 3 at Philadelphia
Jalen Williams
Injury
Josh Banks
Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Chad Wheeler
No Updates
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 had three tackles and a sack Monday night against the Lions.

Pierre-Paul got good pressure for much of the night, but the Lions attempted only 21 passes all game, limiting his opportunity for a bigger performance.

Brett Jones
No Updates
Roger Lewis
News
Lewis caught four of six targets for 54 yards Sunday night.

Lewis was the only Giants player to make even a moderately big play, but his role will shrink when Odell Beckham comes back, likely in Week 2.

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 promoted from the Giants' practice squad to their active roster Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Assuming he plays, the rookie will make his career debut in Sunday's game against the Eagles. Williams came into the league as a linebacker, but he will be playing defensive end for the foreseeable future. He figures to help provide depth at the position.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Ereck Flowers
No Updates
Brad Wing
No Updates
Robert Thomas
News
Thomas (soreness) played in Monday's game against the Browns.

He only played 68 snaps in 2016, but Thomas is competing for a larger role on the defensive front this season. Now that he's healthy, Thomas can try stealing snaps from fellow tackle Jay Bromley.

Evan Schwan
Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve
Adam Bisnowaty
No Updates
Davis Webb
News
Webb is expected to play most of the second half in Thursday's preseason finale against the Patriots, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Geno Smith and Josh Johnson are expected to split the first-half reps as they continue to battle for the top backup job. Webb, a 2017 third-round selection, is still expected to spend his rookie season as the Giants' No. 3 quarterback, likely rendering him inactive for most gamedays. He might be limited to mop-up duty Thursday if the Giants decide they want to see more of Smith and/or Johnson after halftime.

Eli Manning
News
Manning completed 22 of 32 passes for 239 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Monday night's 24-10 loss to the Lions.

Manning was regularly put under pressure, culminating in him being sacked five times. Despite the return of star wideout Odell Beckham, New York's passing attack accounted for just one play of over 20 yards. While Manning's interception only came after rookie Evan Engram tipped a pass, the rookie was on the receiving end of the Giants' lone touchdown thus far this season -- an 18-yard connection with Manning during the second quarter. Following two atrocious offensive performances, Manning and company are tasked with righting the ship at the division-rival Eagles in Week 3.

Donte Deayon
No Updates
Adam Gettis
News
Gettis (foot) was placed on the Giants' injured reserve list Monday.

Gettis has spent the majority of the previous three seasons on the Giants practice squad. While he was competing for a spot on the final roster during training camp, his odds of doing so were believed to be slim. He will now spend the entire 2017 season on IR with a foot injury.

Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve
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 3 at Philadelphia
Dwayne Harris
News
Harris (upper body) isn't listed on the Giants' injury report for Sunday's game in Dallas.

Harris missed part of the preseason with the injury, but apparently is fine for Week 1. He'll provide depth at wideout while likely returning both punts and kickoffs.

Weston Richburg
News
Richburg (hand) played Monday in a preseason game against Cleveland.

Richburg finally has fully recovered from a surgery on his snapping hand. He's now in line to start for the Giants again.

Bobby Hart
News
Hart (ankle) will not return to Monday's game against the Lions.

Hart aggravated an ankle injury he suffered in the Giants' season opening loss to the Cowboys. D.J. Fluker will presumably fill in for the 23-year-old in his absence.

Injury
Ankle - Did Not Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 3 at Philadelphia
Jay Bromley
News
Bromley (knee) was able to fully participate in Wednesday's practice.

Bromley returned to practice Monday after suffering a sprained knee in the Giants third preseason contest. He has not suffered any setbacks, so it appears likely he will be able to play Sunday night against the Cowboys.

Travis Rudolph
News
Rudolph was let go by the Giants on Saturday.

The undrafted rookie was vying for a special teams role and a slot receiver role with the Giants. Rudolph may be a good candidate for the practice squad if he isn't picked up elsewhere.

Wayne Gallman
News
Gallman is inactive Monday night against the Lions, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

The fourth-round rookie is a healthy scratch for the second game in a row, which seems unlikely to change barring an injury to Paul Perkins, Shane Vereen or Orleans Darkwa.

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
Tim Scott
News
Scott was waived by the Giants on Friday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Scott was trying to make it as a reserve safety behind Landon Collins and Darian Thompson. He'll be eligible to sign elsewhere if he clears waivers.

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.

Marquis Bundy
News
Bundy was waived by the Giants on Saturday.

Bundy was initially brought onto the team to add depth to a banged up receiver corps. He caught seven passes for 103 yards this preseason, but the Giants picked Tavarres King (ankle) and Dwayne Harris (upper body) as their depth receivers instead. At 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, expect Bundy to be a prime candidate for the practice squad.

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.

Curtis Grant
News
Grant was promoted to the active roster Monday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

The Giants needed to add some depth at linebacker for Monday's game which is why Grant was signed off the practice squad. It's unsure if he'll have any role on the defensive side of the ball, but either way his fantasy impact seems limited at best.

Keenan Robinson
News
Robinson (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Detroit, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Robinson is used mostly as a depth linebacker and special teamer, so his loss won't alter the game plan too much. Should the veteran starter Jonathan Casillas fall victim to the injury bug, J.T. Thomas seems like the likely replacement.

Injury
Concussion - Limited Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 3 at Philadelphia
Sterling Shepard
News
Shepard caught two of four targets for 23 yards Monday against the Lions.

It's hard to see much upside for Shepard in a weak offense, especially now that Odell Beckham is back.

Landon Collins
News
Collins had six total tackles and an assist Monday night against the Lions.

Collins should continue to be one of the league's top IDP defensive backs this season.

Shane Vereen
News
Vereen rushed six times for 28 yards and caught all three of his targets for 27 yards in Monday night's 24-10 loss to the Lions.

Vereen led the Giants in rushing yards, evidencing how poor their ground game was once again Monday. With Paul Perkins ineffective thus far, Vereen could get more handoffs going forward, but his fantasy stock remains rooted in his presence in the passing game. Through two tilts, Vereen boasts 12 receptions for 78 yards.

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
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 - Injured Reserve
Mark Herzlich
News
Herzlich (neck) was placed on injured reserve by the Giants on Saturday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Herzlich has been out for the majority of camp after suffering a stinger injury in early August. The move would be season-ending for the 30-year-old, and also puts a question mark on the remainder of his career.

Injury
Neck - Injured Reserve
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.

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.

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.

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
No Updates
Jon Halapio
No Updates
Avery Moss
News
Moss (shoulder) played in Monday's preseason matchup against the Browns, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

Moss played 20 defensive snaps Monday and made one tackle. The 2017 fifth-round pick faces an uphill battle for a backup position with the Giants, and he has two more preseason games to prove his worth.

Justin Pugh
No Updates
Rhett Ellison
News
Ellison is listed as the top tight end on the Giants' depth chart heading into the team's Week 1 matchup with the Cowboys, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Rookie first-round pick Evan Engram is the long-term heir to the starting role at the position and is likely to see more targets in Week 1. Ellison has made his greatest impact as a run and pass blocker throughout his career, hauling in no more than 19 receptions or one touchdown in any of his previous five seasons as a member of the Vikings.

D.J. Fluker
News
Fluker (leg) is officially active for Monday night's game against the Lions.

Fluker was a full participant in practice this week but was listed as questionable Sunday. Apparently the 25-year-old has been playing through the injury, but is well enough at this point to suit up Monday night.

Aldrick Rosas
News
Rosas converted a 25-yard field goal and an extra point in Monday's 24-10 loss to Detroit.

The first-year kicker has now hit both of his attempts on the season, both within 29 yards. Typically the kicker on a team with Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard and Eli Manning would have starting potential. At this point, however, the Giants don't look good enough on that side of the ball to give their kicker much of a chance.

Zak DeOssie
No Updates
B.J. Goodson
News
Goodson (leg) is expected to be back for Week 3's contest against the Eagles, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Goodson's absence Monday night came as a bit of a surprise considering the linebacker was a full participant in practice all week. However, it appears as though the leg injury is a minor one, so while the Giants will give an official update on Goodson's status later this week, the expectation is that he'll return to practice and will be active against the Eagles.

Injury
Leg - Did Not Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 3 at Philadelphia
Calvin Munson
No Updates
Brandon Marshall
News
Marshall caught only one of five targets Monday night for 17 yards.

Marshall also dropped arguably Eli Manning's best throw of the night on a sideline route that would have given the team a much-needed first down. Given how poorly the Giants offense has done, Marshall has to make the most of his opportunities in order to stay relevant.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
News
Rodgers-Cromartie (thigh) returned to the lineup Monday for a preseason showdown with Cleveland.

The veteran corner played 26 snaps and made two tackles Monday as he prepared for another season as the Giants' starter on the outside. There isn't a defensive-back battle in New York, it was more of a matter of getting healthy. Rodgers-Cromartie's posted career highs in pass breakups (21) and interceptions (6) in 2016, and he combined that with 49 tackles -- solidifying his role with the Giants.
