Picks that have signed are:
Fourth-round guard Terry Poole, fourth-round guard Mark Glowinski, sixth-round defensive end Obum Gwacham, fifth-round cornerback Tye Smith, sixth-round center Kristjan Sokoli and seventh-round safety Ryan Murphy.
The Giants will officially reinstate Eli Manning as the team's starting quarterback Wednesday following the veteran's one-game benching, a change that was set in motion shortly after head coach Ben McAdoo was fired Monday. While Smith, who threw for 212 yards and one touchdown but lost two fumbles during his start in the Week 13 loss to the Raiders, is set to become a free agent this offseason and doesn't appear to have a long-term future with the franchise, he'll likely dress Sunday with third-round rookie Davis Webb apparently not ready for the understudy role just yet. Webb is expected to receive more reps than usual in practice this week, however, potentially setting the stage for Smith to fall to third on the depth chart at some point during the Giants' final three games.
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.
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.
He's the fourth string back for now behind Orleans Darkwa, Wayne Gallman and Shane Vereen.
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.
Though he failed to practice in any capacity this week, Harrison received clearance to suit up and should continue to hold down his starting role along the defensive line. Harrison only has 1.5 sacks on the season, but he's been highly effective as a run stopper, logging 53 tackles across 11 contests.
Apple hasn't taken the field in more than a month, and it's evident that injury isn't the only reason behind his four consecutive inactive statuses. In the report, Raanan notes that the cornerback's behavior in the locker room has aggravated teammates and others within the organization, with the 2016 No. 10 overall pick getting called out for a lack of effort during the Giants' Nov. 12 to the then-winless 49ers. With the Giants firing general manager Jerry Reese and head coach Ben McAdoo earlier this month, it's possible that Apple won't be viewed a part of the team's long-term plans when a new regime takes over in 2018.
The move was made in order to make room on the roster to activate Tank Carridine off injured reserve. Armstrong had seen his role reduced in recent weeks, so it is not surprising he was the odd man out in the situation. He'll now either look for a new opportunity or land on the team's practice squad.
Darkwa averaged an underwhelming 2.9 yards per carry, despite what was a favorable matchup on paper, finishing with fewer than 33 rushing yards for the third straight game. He also watched as fellow back Wayne Gallman totaled 99 scrimmage yards on 19 touches and was heavily involved as the Giants played from behind. Given Darkwa's ineffectiveness and Gallman's emergence, the latter seems like the more desirable fantasy option heading into next week's matchup with the Eagles.
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.
Jerry was held out of Wednesday's practice entirely due to the mouth issue, but the day off looks to have been all he needed. Expect Jerry to be active for Sunday's home contest against the Seahawks.
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.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, a superior athlete is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a major surgery. Beckham worked out in the weight room Wednesday sans boot as he seeks to regain full mobility in his left ankle, according to Kimberly Jones of NFL Network. Once he achieves that step, Beckham will turn his focus to balance and strength. Considering where he stands, he should be running on all cylinders by the start of the offseason program in April.
Engram led the team in receiving yardage while finishing third in targets, but he struggled to produce much outside of a 35-yard gain in the second quarter. This was still a respectable showing from the rookie, given the struggles of the rest of the offense, but fantasy owners were likely left wanting more at a crucial stage of the season. Engram will face a tough matchup as he attempts to bounce back next week against the Eagles.
Harris was one of two of the team's linebackers to come out of Sunday's loss to the Rams with an injury, though his was evidently more severe than Keenan Robinson's (quadriceps). The Giants signed Deontae Skinner from the Raiders' practice squad to add depth at linebacker with Harris ruled out for the season.
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.
Pierre-Paul's injury restricted him to just one limited practice this week, but after warming up Sunday without any apparent issues, he'll receive clearance to play. It wouldn't be surprising if the 2-10 Giants limited Pierre-Paul's snap count more than usual as a result of the injury, however, so the defensive end may not represent an appealing option this week in IDP formats.
Jones makes his return to a reserve role Sunday.
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.
With the Giants electing to make Tavarres King inactive in a coach's decision in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, Lewis gained a little more primacy in the team's passing attack, drawing a season-high 11 targets in the contest. Despite the ample attention from quarterback Eli Manning, Lewis only delivered seven catches for 46 yards, and apparently picked up the ankle injury along the way. If Lewis is able to return to practice in some capacity the next two days, he'll likely receive clearance to play Week 15 against the Eagles, but his fantasy upside will be limited even if he retains a starting role.
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.
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.
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.
In one of his first decisions after being named interim head coach following Ben McAdoo's firing Monday, Steve Spagnuolo reinserted Eli Manning as the team's starting quarterback over Geno Smith, who directed the offense during the Week 13 loss to the Raiders. Though Smith is set to become a free agent this offseason and may not have a future with the organization, he'll stick around as Manning's top backup for at least this week with Webb apparently not yet ready for game action. The rookie is expected to get more reps in practice this week, however, potentially setting him up for backup duties -- or even a start or two -- during the Giants' final three games of the regular season.
While the Giants may still decide to take a look at Davis Webb before the end of the season, it apparently won't happen this week. Manning didn't exactly make the best case for himself in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Cowboys, completing 31 of 46 passes for only 228 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. In his defense, the Giants committed a number of ugly drops when the game was still competitive, while both interceptions occurred late in the fourth quarter in desperation mode.
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.
'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.
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.
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.
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.
Hart missed Week 3 after hurting his ankle in Week 2. However, after fitting in limited practice sessions Thursday and Friday, he appears to be good to go moving forward.
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.
Bromley is in line to be the top defensive tackle for the Giants, so putting him back into the game would be unnecessary. Knee sprains can be tricky, but it's a good sign that he was listed as questionable to return instead of out. Bromley's next opportunity to take the field will be Thursday in New England, the last preseason contest.
Though Rudolph's hamstring injury will keep him sidelined Sunday, there's a good chance he would have been a healthy inactive if he didn't enter the weekend with a designation. Since being promoted from the Giants' practice squad in early October, Rudolph hasn't been able to find his footing in the passing game, despite the team's dearth of healthy receiving talent. Over five appearances, Rudolph has grabbed six of 15 targets for 66 yards.
Gallman led the team in touches and averaged a solid 4.9 yards per carry, compared to just 2.9 for fellow back Orleans Darkwa. He also set career highs in targets, receptions and receiving yardage while serving as the passing down back after the team got behind on the scoreboard. Gallman was one of the lone bright spots on the day for a Giants team mired in turmoil at the moment, meaning he could maintain a sizable share of the backfield workload next week against the Eagles.
Scott's stay with the Giants lasted all of one game, with the reserve defensive back playing a single snap in Sunday's 51-17 loss to the Rams. With cornerback Janoris Jenkins reinstated from a one-game suspension Tuesday, Scott was cut loose to open up a spot on the 53-man roster.
Berhe did not practice Wednesday, but the calf injury doesn't look to be anything too serious following Thursday's session. Look for Berhe to be a full go Sunday against the Rams.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Shepard could hardly shake loose on the day, finishing tied for seventh on the team in targets while posting the lowest yardage total in any game he's completed this season. He caught three passes for 56 yards with Geno Smith at the helm last week, fueling a positive outlook for Eli Manning's return in a favorable matchup, but he was unable to measure up. Shepard figures to be more involved next week against the Eagles, but he remains far from a sure bet to produce given the struggles of the Giants offense.
The Giants haven't issued an official comment on Collins' outlook for the final three regular-season contests, but given the 2-11 team's place in the standings and the fact that the safety was sporting a walking boot coming out of Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, Schwartz suggests it's "highly unlikely" that Collins will play Week 15 against the Eagles. That would come as a major blow to Collins' owners in IDP settings, who have benefited from the second-year player's massive numbers (46 tackles, one interception, one fumble recovery) over the Giants' last four contests.
Vereen is maintaining a minor role as the third-string runner and sometime third-down back.
The Giants appear to be doing some shuffling around at this point in the season in order to get a closer look at some of the talent that's within the organization. Raymond signed with New York's practice squad for the second time this season two weeks ago and will now get an opportunity to join the team's wide receiver corps.
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.
Dunker was waived with an injury designation Wednesday due to the foot injury he suffered in the opening days of training camp.
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.
Vernon was nursing a shoulder injury ahead of Thursday's game, but he played 62 of 71 possible snaps. Unless he suffers a setback, he should be all systems go for a Week 13 matchup with the Raiders.
Entering his third season, Mathews has yet to play a regular season snap, so this injury couldn't be more poorly timed. The only way onto the roster for him is with a quick recovery and stellar special teams play.
Cash appeared in one game for the Panthers earlier in the season before spending a few weeks on the Jets' practice squad. Primarily a special teams player, Cash will also provide the Giants with depth at linebacker given the slew of injuries the team is currently dealing with at the position.
With the Chiefs dealing with a couple of injuries on the offensive line, they'll bring in Becton to add some insurance and depth, though they won't add him to the 53-man roster just yet. Becton spent the offseason with the Lions before being released at the start of the regular season.
O'Malley spent most of last season on the Raiders' practice squad and now gets the opportunity to continue his career in Buffalo.
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.
Okwara will resume practicing Wednesday and is thus a candidate to rejoin the 53-man roster beginning in Week 15 against the Eagles. So long as starting defensive ends Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon both remain healthy the rest of the way, however, Okwara won't be anything more than a rotational defensive lineman for the Giants.
Sheppard's status for Thursday's game was in question after he was only able to practice in limited fashion throughout the short week. However, the 29-year-old's health is up to par, and he could see more snaps than usual with the Giants dealing with a plethora of injuries at linebacker.
Kennard will slot back into his starting strong-side linebacker position after missing Week 10's matchup with the 49ers. His stat line this season hasn't been too impressive, with just 23 tackles (12 solo) and one sack, leaving him off most fantasy radars.
Even with No. 1 wideout Sterling Shepard (hamstring) cleared to play Sunday, it's surprising that King will be held out in Week 14, as the Georgia product wasn't listed on the team's injury report and interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo gave no indication King would be excluded from the game plan. Beyond Shepard, it looks like Roger Lewis, Kalif Raymond and Darius Powe will pick up the remaining available snaps at wide receiver, though no one among that trio looks like an especially reliable fantasy option.
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.
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.
Sharp has been on the Broncos' practice squad since being waived by the team in late October, but now has an opportunity in New York. The Giants situation at wide receiver behind Sterling Shepard remains in flux, which could lead to some real opportunities for the 23-year-old, but nothing worth fantasy consideration at this point in the season.
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.
Pugh previously met with a doctor in California for consultation on the back injury, at which point it was decided surgery wouldn't be necessary. However, with Pugh having since failed to progress in his recovery as anticipated, it's looking more likely that he could require a procedure. If Pugh does go under the knife, it would almost certainly spell an end to his season.
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.
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.
Dixon has been on the Giants' practice squad since mid-October, but with Eli Apple still away from the team and Janoris Jenkins potentially needing season-ending ankle injury, the defensive back will be brought up to add some depth to the secondary. Dixon last played in the regular season in 2014 with Tampa Bay, logging eight tackles and an interception in 14 games.
Goodson missed four straight games with the same ankle injury before returning to action for the Week 13 loss to the Raiders, during which he aggravated the issue. With Goodson failing to practice Friday after managing only limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday, he'll be sidelined again this weekend. Expect Calvin Munson to fill in for Goodson at middle linebacker.
Though he'll turn 34 years old in March and faces a lengthy rehab from the surgery, Marshall's comments suggest he's already preparing for a 13th NFL season. He'll enter the final year of his contract with the Giants in 2018 and may need to prove he's healthy in training camp in order to avoid being cut by the team leading up to the season.
The Giants aren't practicing Tuesday due to taking a pair of days off following their trip out west this weekend, but the cornerback should be on the practice field Wednesday. Expect Rodgers-Cromartie to be a full go in Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
