Position Listing
Ryan Murphy
News
The Giants promoted Murphy from their practice squad to the active roster Friday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

With Landon Collins (ankle) doubtful and Nat Berhe (hamstring) already ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, the Giants were in desperate need of additional safety help. As a result, Murphy will likely dress in Week 15, though he probably won't see an abundance of snaps on defense.

Geno Smith
News
Smith (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

As expected, Smith has yielded backup duty to Davis Webb, but interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo was noncommittal during the week about an appearance for the rookie signal caller. No matter how the QB situation plays out Week 17, Smith may have played his last snap for any squad based in New York City due to his status as a unrestricted free agent in the offseason.

Austin Rehkow
No Updates
Kerry Wynn
News
Wynn (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Though Wynn was able to shake off the knee injury ahead of the Week 10 contest, he looks bound to see a role reduction with Olivier Vernon (ankle) returning from a four-game absence. Wynn should still be included in the team's defensive end rotation, but he'll likely pick up snaps only when Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul require a breather.

Dalvin Tomlinson
News
Tomlinson made 50 tackles (30 solo), one sack and accounted for one pass defensed in 16 games during his rookie campaign in 2017.

The Giants' 2017 second-rounder made at least one tackle in all but one game for the team as a rookie. The defensive line was one of the lone bright spots for the Giants in 2017, as the unit also includes Jason Pierre-Paul, Damon Harrison and Olivier Vernon. Tomlinson has three years remaining on his contract with the Giants and he projects to once again start at defensive tackle alongside Harrison in 2018.

Paul Perkins
News
Perkins had 41 carries for only 90 yards on the year and wound up spending most of the season's second half on special teams.

Perkins' stint as a viable starter has likely come and gone. Wayne Gallman is probably the team's leading running back, though the team could re-sign Orleans Darkwa or add competition via the draft or free agency.

Ross Cockrell
News
Cockrell logged 50 tackles (37 solo), 11 passes defensed and three interceptions in 16 games during his 2017 campaign.

Cockrell, who was traded from the Steelers to the Giants just before the start of the regular season, became a starting cornerback in New York and took on additional responsibility after a season-ending injury to Janoris Jenkins (ankle). Cockrell had recorded just two total interceptions throughout his first three years in the league, so a trio of picks in 2017 was a solid development. He'll become an unrestricted free agent in 2018, but the Giants may elect to re-sign the corner.

Damon Harrison
News
Harrison finished the year with 76 tackles, 51 of which were solo, and 1.5 sacks. He also had three passes defensed and one interception.

Harrison is one of the league's premier run-stopping interior linemen and a reliable source of tackles from that spot. Just don't expect many sacks from him as his career high is 2.5.

Eli Apple
News
The Giants officially lifted Apple's team-imposed suspension Tuesday.

Apple drew the ire of teammates and others within the organization for his antics in the locker room and his declining play on the field in 2017, culminating in the Giants suspending him for the season-ending victory over the Redskins on Sunday. While it would appear Apple has many fences to mend if he's to remain with the Giants next season, the front-office and coaching-staff turnover could help his case for sticking around. Newly hired general manager Dave Gettleman told SiriusXM NFL Radio that he planned to meet with Apple on Wednesday, presumably to discuss the cornerback's future with the team.

Keeon Johnson
Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
No Updates
Ray-Ray Armstrong
News
Armstrong made 10 tackles (five solo) and forced one fumble in five games with the Giants during the 2017 regular season.

Armstrong spent his first 10 contests of the regular season in San Francisco, where he racked up 54 tackles (39 solo), one sack, two passes defensed, two interceptions and one forced fumble before being released in late November. The Giants primarily used Armstrong on special teams, but he finally saw more than 20 defensive snaps in both of the team's final two games of the season. If Armstrong is able to make the final roster in 2018, he'd once again provide depth at outside linebacker.

Orleans Darkwa
News
Darkwa carried 20 times for 154 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Redskins.

Darkwa received 20 carries for just the third time this season and responded with 7.7 yards per carry and a career high in rushing yardage. The bulk of his damage came on just the second offensive play of the game, when he went 75 yards for a touchdown to give his side a lead it would never relinquish. Darkwa was ineffective in several games this season and ceded touches to Wayne Gallman at times, but he did record career highs in virtually every rushing category. He will be an unrestricted free agent after this season and could command some attention on the market from teams in need of backfield depth.

Kristjan Sokoli
News
Sokoli signed a contract with the Saints on Tuesday, Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com reports.

A college defensive tackle, Sokoli will provide the Saints with depth at center while starter Max Unger recovers from a foot injury.

John Greco
News
Greco signed with the Giants on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Greco spent some time with the Browns and Saints earlier this season and will now look to bolster a Giants' battered offensive line.

Janoris Jenkins
News
Jenkins (ankle) will meet with doctors Monday and could require season-ending surgery, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

Jenkins was spotted in a walking boot following the Giants' loss to the Redskins on Thursday after aggravating the ankle injury that has been bothering him for the better part of two months. Though he's only missed two games this season -- one of which was due to a team-imposed suspension -- Jenkins' play has been impacted by the injury, which compromises his ability to cut and change direction. Even if Jenkins opts to forgo surgery and play the Giants' final five games of the season, he'll likely require surgery for the ankle at some point during the offseason.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Amba Etta-Tawo
News
The Giants signed Etta-Tawo to a reserve/future contract Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Etta-Tawo, who went undrafted out of Syracuse last spring, ended the year on the Giants' practice squad. He'll compete for slotting at the bottom of the depth chart this offseason.

John Jerry
News
Jerry won't return to Sunday's game against the Redskins due to a concussion, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

Jerry will be replaced by John Greco at left guard for the remainder of Sunday's game.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jordan Williams
News
The Giants waived Williams on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

The Giants are dealing with more significant injuries at linebacker than defensive end heading into their Week 10 matchup with the 49ers, so Williams was deemed an expendable member of the roster. Though he's now been waived by the Giants twice this season, Williams could rejoin the club's practice squad if he goes unclaimed off waivers.

Odell Beckham
News
Beckham is happy with where he stands in his recovery from a fractured left ankle, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports. "I don't know a percentage, but I'm actually doing really good," Beckham said Saturday at the NFL Honors awards show. "They tell me to slow down because I've been out for so long, and I'm ready to go, I'm ready to go. Now I can see where the mental part comes in as far as being patient, and knowing you can't push too much right now, or you need to push more. It's finding that balance."

In a preseason game Aug. 21, Beckham injured his left ankle, which was termed a sprain from the get go. After sitting out the regular-season opener, he returned Week 2 and was heavily involved in the passing attack, as the Giants are wont to do, but playing through the pain ultimately was his downfall. Finally, in Week 5 against the Chargers, Beckham required a cart to leave the field and was diagnosed with a broken left ankle, forcing an abbreviated end to his fourth campaign. As of Dec. 6, he wasn't wearing a walking boot, and Saturday's comments seem to indicate he'll be ready for the offseason program in early April. However, Beckham is focused on the long term. "To be ready for the first game [of the 2018 season] is all I'm worried about, so I can be a hundred percent," he stated. No matter when his health is secure, the touchdown machine (38 in 47 career contests) will be looking to bounce back from a career-low 7.4 yards per target.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Evan Engram
News
Engram (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Although he avoided any fractures in his ribs, Engram was held out of practice all week and seemingly never stood much chance to play in the season finale. Rhett Ellison and Jerell Adams will take over at tight end this weekend, while Engram finishes his campaign with one of the better stat lines by a rookie tight end in recent memory, though he needed 115 targets to get to 64 catches for 722 yards and six scores. While clearly locked in as a big part of the Giants' future, Engram will have a tough time wrangling 7.7 targets per game next season unless the team deals with another onslaught of injuries to its receiving corps. His projected 2018 value is difficult to gauge, as the Giants will enter the offseason without a clear starting quarterback for the first time since 2004.

Injury
Ribs - Questionable for the start of training camp

Chad Wheeler
News
Wheeler (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Though Wheeler was cleared to suit up, the Giants will go with Bobby Hart as their starting right tackle, according to Art Stapleton of Newsday. Look for Wheeler to serve in a depth role along the offensive line.

Darian Thompson
News
Thompson recorded 75 tackles, six pass breakups and one interception over 16 games in 2017.

Although he managed to stay injury-free, Thompon's second season in the league was a relative disappointment. Not only was tackling an issue -- Thompson missed 13 tackles throughout the season per Pro Football Focus -- but he didn't fare very well in pass coverage either. However, it's fair to view 2017 as his rookie season since Thompson missed most of the 2016 campaign with a sprained foot. This time around, the Boise State product won't have an injury to worry about as he begins preparations for the 2018 campaign.

Ethan Cooper
No Updates
Jason Pierre-Paul
News
Pierre-Paul (finger/back) is listed as active Sunday against the Redskins.

Playing with a cast on his broken finger Week 16, he tallied a sack among four tackles while missing just three of 69 defensive snaps. He was unable to practice in preparation for the season finale, seemingly the result of a more-recent issue with his back. The maintenance of Pierre-Paul's health will allow him to take the field, but it stands to wonder how effective he'll be.

Brett Jones
News
Jones (hip) was listed as active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Jones makes his return to a reserve role Sunday.

Darryl Morris
News
Morris signed with the Giants on Tuesday.

Morris was most recently released by the Colts in early October, and the veteran defensive back has appeared in 48 NFL games with three different teams. With Eli Apple's status this week in doubt while he is away from the team, and Janoris Jenkins potentially needing season-ending surgery, the Giants are dealing with serious depth issues in the secondary, and Morris should add some insurance to the banged-up unit.

Roger Lewis
News
Lewis (ankle) may not be full-go for the start of offseason workouts in April, Dan Duggan of NJ Advance Media reports.

Lewis underwent surgery to remove bone spurs from his right ankle on Jan. 2 and said the recovery time from the procedure "should be about two months." Thus, there at least seems to be a chance the receiver can participate in OTAs. Either way, there isn't any concern over his availability for training camp.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Andrew Adams
News
Adams logged 34 tackles, two passes defensed and one forced fumble in 16 games during the 2017 regular season.

Adams, who played 746 defensive snaps at safety during his rookie campaign in 2016, was primarily used on special teams throughout his second year in the league with the Giants. He'll likely battle for a spot on the team's roster once again in 2018 as he looks to provide depth at safety behind Landon Collins (forearm) and Darian Thompson.

Ereck Flowers
News
Flowers (groin) is inactive for Sunday's season finale against the Redskins.

Flowers was questionable entering Sunday's game after being limited due to his groin throughout the week. Look for Chad Wheeler to see the start at left tackle in place of Flowers.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brad Wing
No Updates
Robert Thomas
News
Thomas (calf) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Thomas was limited on Wednesday with the calf injury, but after a full session Thursday, the reserve defensive lineman should be ready to go for Sunday's matchup with the Rams.

Adam Bisnowaty
News
Bisnowaty was promoted to the Giants' 53-man roster Saturday, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

Bisnowaty will get the start at right tackle Sunday in place of the recently waived Bobby Hart. The rookie will be making his NFL debut in the contest.

Davis Webb
News
Webb, last year's third-round pick, didn't throw a single pass during his rookie season.

Geno Smith got one start when Ben McAdoo benched Eli Manning, but Manning got his job back, and the Giants never turned to Webb. Webb should be in the mix for a backup spot in 2018, but it's hard to see him competing for the starting job with no experience.

Eli Manning
News
Head coach Pat Shurmer expressed confidence in Manning on Friday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. "I think he's got years left," Shurmer said. "How much? I don't know. But I think he has time left and I look forward to working with him."

In addition to good vibes from the new head honcho, Manning was given a vote of confidence from another person in the Giants hierarchy, general manager Dave Gettleman, who said the quarterback has "plenty of arm talent and can win games." The comments come on the heels of a dismal campaign in which Manning's 210-start streak in the regular season came to an end, but his 80.4 quarterback rating was only his second-lowest since 2008, which may be on the mind of Giants brass. No matter, the Giants hold the No. 2 overall pick in the upcoming draft and are expected to address the QB room at some point, likely due to Manning's age (37), at the very least.

Donte' Deayon
News
Deayon (forearm) was officially placed on injured reserve Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Deayon broke his right forearm in last Thursday's loss to the Redskins, so this move was a mere formality. The rookie cornerback was one of four players placed on injured reserve by the Giants on Monday.

Injury
Forearm - Questionable for the start of training camp
Canaan Severin
News
The Giants signed Severin to a reserve/future contract Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Severin originally signed with the Giants in training camp but didn't survive final roster cuts ahead of the season opener. However, he returned to the team in December by way of signing with the Giants' practice squad and will now again aim to carve out a depth role at receiver this offseason.

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 the start of training camp
Dwayne Harris
News
Harris (foot) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Harris' placement on IR comes as no surprise after the receiver was ruled out for the season due to a fractured foot he sustained in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. Harris is set to undergo surgery Tuesday, with the expectation being that he'll be ready to go for the start of the 2018 campaign.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Deontae Skinner
News
The Giants placed Skinner (hamstring) on injured reserve Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Skinner exited last Thursday's loss to the Redskins, and while the specifics of the injury remain undisclosed, his 2017 season is over. Akeem Ayers should serve as the primary reserve weak-side linebacker, but the Giants may need to do some additional shuffling, given that they have placed six linebackers on IR this season.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
Weston Richburg
News
Richburg (concussion) will miss the remainder of the 2017 season and has been placed on injured reserve, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Richburg's absence for the remainder of the campaign means Brett Jones should start at center for the Giants the rest of the way. He will attempt to recover and return to the field for 2018.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Darius Powe
News
The Giants placed Powe (foot) on injured reserve Monday.

Powe fractured his foot while making his NFL debut Sunday against the Cowboys, a game in which the undrafted rookie secured two of four targets for 13 yards. With his season all but over, Powe will now look to recover in time for the start of offseason workouts next spring.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jay Bromley
News
Bromley is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Redskins with an ankle injury.

Bromley has been a rotational defensive tackle this season, averaging just 1.4 tackles per game this season. If he's unable to return, Robert Thomas will fill in for a bulk of the depth snaps.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Travis Rudolph
News
Rudolph caught one of four targets for 29 yards against the Redskins in Week 17.

Rudolph got some run late in the year as the Giants suffered injuries to their receiving corps, but he's a long shot to have a significant role with the team in 2018.

Wayne Gallman
News
Gallman carried 15 times for 89 yards during Sunday's 18-10 win over the Redskins.

Gallman received the largest rushing workload of his young career and responded by comfortably notching a new personal best in yardage on the ground. He was curiously uninvolved in the passing game -- he was targeted just once after racking up 19 catches over the last three weeks -- but that can largely be attributed to the Giants playing with a lead for much of the game. With Orleans Darkway set to hit the free agent market, Gallman could enter next season as the top backfield option in Gotham. However, due to plenty of uncertainty under center and along the offensive line, it remains to be seen how valuable that role would actually be from a fantasy perspective.

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 (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Berhe was considered questionable to play with a hamstring injury that prevented him from playing last week against the Eagles. Berhe hasn't played a defensive snap in four games, though, and thus isn't close to being in the IDP conversation.

Marquis Bundy
News
Bundy failed to catch any of the three targets sent his way in Week 17 against the Redskins.

He was promoted from the practice squad for the game and will likely vie for a spot on it in 2018.

Jonathan Casillas
News
The Giants placed Casillas (neck) on injured reserve Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Casillas' neck stinger worsened during the Giants' Thanksgiving Day loss to the Redskins, then sidelined him for the Week 13 loss to the Raiders. With Casillas evidently not making much notable progress in recent days, the Giants decided to shut the linebacker down for the season. He'll finish the 2017 campaign with 35 tackles (25 solo) and one pass breakup across eight contests. Casillas will become a free agent this offseason and may have played his last game with the Giants.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Curtis Grant
News
Grant (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve by the Giants on Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Grant was carted off the field of last Thursday's loss to the Redskins with the knee injury. Kelvin Sheppard or the recently claimed Ray-Ray Armstrong should be in line for backup duties at strong-side linebacker going forward.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Keenan Robinson
News
Robinson (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Robinson suffered a quad injury in Week 9's loss to the Rams, bringing his season to a sudden halt. The veteran linebacker missed the first two games of the season with a concussion but then went on to play in the next six contests (three starts) -- recording 32 tackles (20 solo) in the process. Look for Jonathan Casillas to take on a larger role for the remainder of the season with Robinson sidelined.

Injury
Quadriceps - Questionable for the start of training camp
Sterling Shepard
News
Shepard (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Shepard didn't practice all week and never seemed especially likely to play. Injuries to Odell Beckham (ankle) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) left the 2016 second-round pick with an opportunity to front the Giants' receiving corps, but his own injury issues limited Shepard to 11 appearances. Shepard finishes with an efficient stat line of 59 catches for 731 yards and two touchdowns on 84 targets -- good for a 8.7 YPT and 70 percent catch rate -- albeit with 57 percent of his yardage occurring in three games. Shepard was clearly a better player this season than in his rookie campaign, but he nonetheless figures to serve as only the second or third option in the passing game next year. Whoever ends up playing quarterback for the team will have the privilege of throwing to Shepard, Evan Engram (ribs), Beckham and Marshall.

Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Landon Collins
News
Collins (forearm), who was placed on injured reserve Monday, underwent surgery earlier in the day, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

It was fully expected that Collins would be placed on IR after fracturing his right forearm in Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Cardinals, but it wasn't known whether or not he would opt for surgery to address the injury. The procedure likely lengthens Collins' recovery timetable and could impact his availability for Organized Team Activities, but he should be fully healthy for the start of training camp next summer. Andrew Adams is expected to start at safety in Collins' place in the season finale against the Redskins.

Shane Vereen
News
Vereen had his usual modest day Sunday with only 15 snaps and three carries for 14 yards. He failed to catch either of his two targets.

It's unclear what the future holds for Vereen as he's a free agent this offseason and turns 29 in March. Usually, third-down backs (think Danny Woodhead, Darren Sproles) age better than workhorses, so there might be some demand for Vereen's services. Wherever he lands, it can hardly be worse than the offense in which he played in 2017.

Kalif Raymond
News
Raymond mustered one catch for 12 yards and negative-one rushing yard in eight games with the Giants and Jets in 2017.

Raymond primarily served as a kick and punt returner with both teams (14 kick returns for 271 yards and 18 punt returns for 99 yards), and was unable to carve out much of an offensive role with either team. The 23-year-old fumbled five times in 2017 (one lost), and will need to improve his ball security in order to have a chance at a roster spot next season.

Jeremiah McKinnon
News
McKinnon was released by the Cowboys on Thursday, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

McKinnon landed on the Cowboys' injured reserve list prior to his rookie campaign in 2016, so the 24-year-old out of Florida International has yet to play a down in the NFL. He'll look to catch on with another team in hopes of providing depth in the secondary.

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 the start of training camp
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 the start of training camp
Olivier Vernon
News
Vernon recorded 37 tackles (23 solo), 6.5 sacks, one pass defensed, one interception and two forced fumbles in 12 games during his 2017 campaign.

Vernon, who missed four consecutive games during the first half of the season due to an ankle injury, amassed less than 46 tackles in a season for the first time since his rookie year with the Dolphins in 2012. Vernon remains under contract with the Giants through 2020, so he figures to once again start at defensive end in 2018 across from Jason Pierre-Paul.

Derrick Mathews
News
The Giants promoted Mathews off their practice squad Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

New York has lost five linebackers to injured reserve this season, so Mathews' addition will strengthen the team's numbers at that position. It's unlikely that Mathews will be called upon for significant snaps on defense if he's active for Sunday's season finale against the Redskins.

Terrell Watson
News
The Giants signed Watson to a contract Wednesday, Chris Adamski of TribLive.com reports.

Watson opened the 2017 season as the Steelers' No. 3 running back, but didn't do much in the role and was demoted to the practice squad by year's end. He's an interesting name to keep an eye on in redraft leagues ahead of the 2018 campaign given the uncertainty in the Giants backfield.

Marshall Koehn
News
The Giants signed Koehn to a reserve/future contract Monday, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

Koehn previously worked out for the Giants in mid-November, but ultimately wasn't signed to the roster after the team elected to stick with rookie Aldrick Rosas as its kicker. While he suited up for all 16 games, Rosas didn't find much success, converting just 18 of 25 field-goal attempts (72 percent) and 20 of 23 extra-point tries. Look for Koehn, who made his lone extra-point attempt while serving as the Bengals' kicker for one game in 2017, to compete with Rosas throughout the offseason.

Nick Becton
News
Becton was signed to the Giants' 53-man roster Saturday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Becton has been on the Chiefs' practice squad since late October after being let go by the Lions at roster cutdowns in September. The 27-year-old is likely to serve as a depth option in his new team's offensive line rotation.

Ryan O'Malley
News
O'Malley signed a contract to join the Giants' 53-man roster Saturday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

O'Malley spent less than a month on the Bills' practice squad earlier this season and was waived by the Raiders at roster cutdowns in September. Starting tight end Evan Engram (ribs) won't play Sunday against the Redskins, but O'Malley is unlikely to serve as more than a depth option.

Laurence Gibson

Akeem Ayers
News
Ayers signed with the Giants on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

The Giants continue to revamp their linebacking corps as Ayers is the third addition in the past two weeks. The veteran linebacker most recently played with the Colts last season, recording 21 tackles and two sacks across 16 games. Ayers could play a sizeable defensive role with his new team right out of the gate given the long list of injuries with which the Giants are currently dealing.

Romeo Okwara
News
Okwara made three tackles (one solo) in six games during the 2017 regular season.

Okwara's sophomore campaign was hindered by a knee sprain that left him sidelined for a solid chunk of the season, as he ultimately missed 10 games before returning for the finale against Washington. The reserve defensive end will be on the last year of his rookie contract in 2018 and should once again provide depth behind Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul.

Kelvin Sheppard
News
Sheppard accounted for 49 tackles (32 solo), four passes defensed and two interceptions in seven games during the 2017 regular season.

Sheppard, who was released by the Bears prior to the start of the 2017 regular season, re-joined the Giants in early November after appearing in all 16 games with the team in 2016. The middle linebacker notched a pair of interceptions in the Giants' season finale against the Redskins, but it remains to be seen if he'll remain in New York throughout 2018 as he's set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Devon Kennard
News
Kennard recorded 41 tackles (24 solo), four sacks, two passes defensed and a fumble recovery in 15 games throughout his 2017 campaign.

Kennard's services were used on both defense and special teams by the Giants for the fourth consecutive season, though his 41 tackles marked a career low in a single campaign. The 26-year-old outside linebacker will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so he may find himself somewhere other than New York in 2018.

Thurston Armbrister
News
Armbrister was signed to the Lions' 53-man roster Saturday, Mike Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Armbrister has resided on the Lions' practice squad since being waived at the close of the preseason. The 23-year-old will likely only serve as a reserve linebacker and special teams player for the Lions.

Tavarres King
News
King (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

King enjoyed his moment in the sun with a pair of touchdown catches in a Week 15 loss to the Eagles, but he came out of the game and hasn't practiced since. The 2013 fifth-round pick may have to compete for a roster spot next season, as he had just four career catches entering 2017 and only caught 18 of his 37 targets for 240 yards (6.5 YPT) this year. With Sterling Shepard (neck) and Evan Engram (ribs) also unavailable, the Giants are expected to deploy Roger Lewis, Travis Rudolph and Hunter Sharp in three-wide formations Sunday. Lewis could add to his streak of three straight games with double-digit targets.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jalen Simmons
News
Simmons signed a reserve/future contract with the Giants on Tuesday, per the league's official media site.

Simmons has bounced around on practice squads since entering the league in 2016, but he has yet to receive a promotion to an active roster. He'll need quite the camp to make the 53-man roster come fall, as the Giants now have five total running backs on their roster.

Kyle Carter
News
Carter was claimed off waivers by the Giants on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports.

Carter will reunite with former Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, who was named the Giants new head coach Tuesday. Carter only played in three games for the Vikings during the regular season and failed to record a statistic in the process. He'll now join a tight end room led by Evan Engram and Rhett Ellison.

Jerell Adams
News
Adams, last year's sixth-round pick, mostly saw work on special teams in 2017.

With Evan Engram firmly entrenched as the team's starter, Adams will vie for a backup job again next preseason.

Shane Smith

Jon Halapio
News
Halapio will get his first career start in Thursday's Week 12 tilt against the Redskins, Dan Duggan of NJ Advanced Media reports.

Halapio was brought up to the Giants' active roster in October and has operated as a backup for the team since then. His start Thursday is coming as a result of D.J. Fluker (toe) being doubtful for the game.

Hunter Sharp
News
Sharp caught five of eight targets for 54 yards and a score in the Giants' season finale against the Redskins.

An undrafted rookie in 2016, Sharp is a long shot to have a significant role should he remain with the Giants.

Avery Moss
News
Moss (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

The rookie has been limited to just six special teams snaps through the Giants' first four games, but his availability isn't insignificant with starting defensive end Olivier Vernon (ankle) unavailable. Even so, Kerry Wynn is in line to start in Vernon's stead, so Moss is just expected to act as insurance along the defensive line and probably won't be in store for a significant workload.

Justin Pugh
News
The Giants will place Pugh (back) on injured reserve, ending his season, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Plagued by back problems since early November, Pugh hadn't played in more than a month and wasn't showing the requisite progress to get back on the field for any of the Giants' final three games. On a fortunate note, Pugh won't require surgery to address the back issue, with doctors prescribing a regimen of rest and rehab for the offensive lineman following a second opinion. Pugh, the Giants' first-round pick in 2013, will become an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career this offseason.

Injury
Back - Questionable for the start of training camp
Rhett Ellison
News
Ellison led the Giants in receiving Sunday with five catches for 63 yards on six targets.

Ellison filled in for the injured Evan Engram, but should go back to his role as blocking tight end in 2018.

D.J. Fluker
News
The Giants placed Fluker (toe) on injured reserve Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Fluker injured his toe earlier this month and sat out last Thursday's loss to the Redskins. Jon Halapio will likely continue to start in his stead at left guard until Justin Pugh (back) is able to return.

Injury
Toe - Questionable for the start of training camp
Aldrick Rosas
News
Rosas made two short field goals but missed an extra point Sunday.

Rosas finished the year making 18 of 25 field goals (72 percent) and 20 of 23 PATs. Both marks are unacceptable for a modern NFL kicker, so don't be surprised if the Giants go in another direction in 2018.

Brandon Dixon
News
Dixon (heel/hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Dixon will make his third consecutive start since getting promoted to the active roster in late November. In his first two contests, he posted eight tackles, four pass breakups and one forced fumble.

Zak DeOssie

B.J. Goodson
News
Goodson (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Goodson has been dealing with persistent lower-body injuries throughout the season, missing eight games and playing only 75 percent or more snaps in three of the seven contests in which he's suited up. The 2-13 Giants won't ask Goodson to play through the pain in a meaningless season finale Sunday against the Redskins, so the middle linebacker will turn his focus to getting healthy heading into the team's offseason program. Goodson wraps up the 2017 campaign with 53 tackles (37 solo), two pass breakups and a forced fumble.

Brandon Marshall
News
Marshall (ankle) said Thursday that he expects to be running without restrictions in a couple weeks.

In Week 5, Marshall suffered a severe enough injury to his left ankle to require season-ending surgery, which was performed to stabilize the region. Per his comments Thursday, he's been tackling his rehabilitation with a certain ferocity, including "living in the weight room ... to get better, faster and stronger." The 33-year-old wide receiver is also intent on suiting up for two more years after playing less than 13 games in a given season for the first time in his 12-year career.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
News
Rodgers-Cromartie notched 48 tackles (31 solo), one-half of a sack and one pass defensed in 15 games during his 2017 campaign.

Rodgers-Cromartie, who tied his career high with six interceptions in 2016, failed to record a single pick this season as he experienced a slightly reduced role at cornerback for the Giants. He'll be 32 years old in April, so a position change to free safety could be in store for the veteran in what will be the final season of his contract with New York, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.
