  Giants | Sterling Shepard confident he'll return soon    Tue Oct 22, 08:32 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) said Tuesday, Oct. 22, he's confident he'll return to the field soon. 'Oh, I'll be back out on the field,' Shepard said. 'It's just whether it's gonna be this week or next week.'

Footballguys view: Shepard has been concussed twice this season, but he's symptom free over the last two weeks. He should be back at some point, but expect the Giants to be cautious. In the meantime, Golden Tate will be the top target in the passing game.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate ended up with six receptions for 80 yards on 11 targets in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Tate was the best thing going in a somewhat ineffective passing game, mainly because of the pressure on Daniel Jones. Sterling Shepard could return next week to take some edge off of Golden Tate against his old Lions team.

New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman (concussion) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Gallman goes back to the bench with the return of Saquon Barkley this week. He might be able to play against the Cardinals but it would be as a backup to Barkley.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard limited    Wed Oct 16, 03:19 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Shepard is still in the league's protocol. They'll be cautious with the veteran receiver since this is his second concussion of the season. Shepard should be off against the Cardinals, so that means Golden Tate is going to get plenty of work. Darius Slayton could see a bump in snaps without Shepard too.

  Giants | Daniel Jones vows to improve    Sat Oct 12, 12:54 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones refused to offer any excuses after completing 15-of-31 passes for 161 yards and three interceptions in a 35-14 loss to the New England Patriots on Thursday, Oct. 10. 'The biggest thing for me is to prevent making a mistake twice,' Jones said. 'I don't think the fact that I'm young or the fact I haven't played as much isn't an excuse. I'm not going to use that to help myself feel better. They're still really bad mistakes, and things I can't afford to do. I need to be able to learn from those and prevent them from happening again.'

Footballguys view: Jones looked like a rookie against the Patriots on Thursday night. It will greatly help the young quarterback when the weapons around him are healthy. Fantasy GMs are only interested in Jones from a dynasty perspective.

Footballguys view: The Giants have a banged up RB room right now with Saquon Barkley and Wayne Gallman out. Anderson has been out on the open market for a couple of weeks after the Lions let him go. He should land with a team sometime for the end of the season.

Footballguys view: Allen could be set up to start against Arizona next week if Saquon Barkley isn't ready and Wayne Gallman is still in concussion protocol. Hilliman was a disaster as a starter vs the Patriots last night.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley working toward return    Fri Oct 11, 02:10 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) could return in Week 7, head coach Pat Shurmur said Friday, Oct. 11. 'We'll see,' Shurmur said. 'He's made good progress. He was out there running around (Friday). We'll see what the week brings.'

Footballguys view: The Giants got nothing from their running game vs New England but should get Wayne Gallman back from his concussion at worst. Barkley is the most important player in the offense so the team will conservative with his return.
