  Giants | No timetable for Rashad Jennings    Thu Oct 30, 02:27 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) said he is on track in terms of his rehab, but there is no timetable for his return. Jennings said he has not suffered any setbacks but is not ready to play yet.

Footballguys view: The Giants are really missing Jennings' versatility and rookie Andre Williams has been underwhelming so far. We expect some decent work from him this weekend but at best is a low end RB2.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings to miss Week 9    Thu Oct 30, 11:11 AM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) has been ruled out for Week 9.

Footballguys view: This is a bummer not just for Jennings' fantasy owners, but the Giants too, as they miss his versatility quite a bit. Rookie Andre Williams has been unimpressive so far. They tried running him outside, but he's a north-south runner who lacks the speed to go east-west effectively. They tried running him inside, but he hesitates too much and the offensive line has been bad at blocking. Williams will get carries to start but he's not a pass-catcher and still shaky in pass protection, so if the Colts run out to an early lead, he will have limited impact. Start him as an RB3 this week.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings not ready    Tue Oct 28, 10:24 AM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is not ready to go for Week 9, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Jennings said he is not able to make cuts yet and has been limited to linear running.

Footballguys view: Some thought Jennings would be back after the team's bye week. Now, it looks like Jennings needs a little bit more time. This means rookie Andre Williams could be their lead back in the Week 9 game against the Colts on Monday night.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings not ruling himself out    Mon Oct 27, 05:38 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is not ruling out the possibility of playing in Week 9 but will not return until he is ready.

Footballguys view: We'll know more about Jennings' status as the week of practice rolls on. Jennings did not run during the bye week and was only able to do some light jogging Monday, Oct. 27.

  Giants | Giants GM wants aggressive offense    Mon Oct 27, 04:53 PM

New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese said the team's offense has been cautious up to this point and wants that unit to be more aggressive. 'I just think, as an offense, we have to be more aggressive,' Reese said. 'At times, we're a little bit almost too cautions with what we're doing offensively. This is the National Football League. You've got to go out there and you've got to win the game. You can't expect something to fall into your lap. You've got to take the game. And I think we've got to be more aggressive offensively.'

Footballguys view: The McAdoo system is more of a West Coast design than it is a vertical attack. Without Victor Cruz, the team will have to rely on wide receivers like Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. to be vertical threats.

New York Giants DT Cullen Jenkins (calf) is expected to miss at least a few weeks, so DEs Robert Ayers and Mathias Kiwanuka could be asked to play interior positions more frequently in pass-rush situations. DT Jay Bromley is likely to be elevated to the active roster in Jenkins' absence, and there is a chance DT Damontre Moore could get more looks on the outside if Ayers and/or Kiwanuka are moved inside.

  Giants | Corey Washington needs improvement    Thu Oct 23, 12:59 AM

New York Giants WR Corey Washington has few targets, zero catches and he was inactive in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys. Receivers coach Sean Ryan said Wednesday, Oct. 22, Washington has disappeared after his big preseason because he is still raw. 'He's learning to run an entire route tree,' Ryan said. 'There is growing to be done with Corey. He works on his releases, his routes, his tops of the breaks, getting out of those -- things he needs to improve on. That is where he is right now. He's a work in progress.'

  Giants | Eli Manning is much improved    Thu Oct 23, 12:58 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has completed 65 percent of his passes, which would be a career high. He also has 14 touchdown passes to just five interceptions, compared to 10 touchdowns and 15 interceptions at this point last season. '(The difference is) probably in his football,' quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf said Wednesday, Oct. 22. 'I think he is playing at a high level and I think improved football has really helped out.'

  Giants | Odell Beckham could move around    Thu Oct 23, 12:57 AM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. might be moved around over the final nine games, according to receivers coach Sean Ryan. He said Wednesday, Oct. 22, that he envisions moving Beckham around so teams cannot just key on the young playmaker, and the belief is that Beckham's skills will play well in the slot. The only thing that may prevent the team from moving him inside is that they don't want 'to overload him.'

  Giants | Rueben Randle could work in slot    Thu Oct 23, 12:57 AM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle could be used in the slot over the final nine games, as the team works to replace WR Victor Cruz (knee). 'The other guy that can do certain things in the slot for us is Rueben because he's smart and he's a big target in the middle of the field,' receivers coach Sean Ryan said Wednesday, Oct. 22.

  Giants | Larry Donnell hasn't hit ceiling    Thu Oct 23, 12:53 AM

New York Giants TE Larry Donnell is just scratching the surface, according to tight ends coach Kevin M. Gilbride. Some of his mistakes, including fumbles and blocking deficiencies, are simply the product of a player at the low end of his ultimate progression. 'He's so green with everything he does,' Gilbride said. 'He hasn't been playing the position for very long. But he works at it, he tries to get better and it's paid off in the passing game and he's getting better every week in the run game.'

  Giants | Uncertain where Geoff Schwartz fits in    Thu Oct 23, 12:52 AM

New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz (toe) is destined to return to practice next week, but he still has a ways to go before he is ready for a game. Offensive line coach Pat Flaherty is uncertain where Schwartz will play, only that he will. Schwartz might play right guard for OG John Jerry or left guard for rookie OG Weston Richburg.

Free-agent QB Terrelle Pryor (Seahawks) is working out for the New York Giants Tuesday, Oct. 21, according to a person familiar with the workouts. It appears as though Pryor is working out as a quarterback.

Footballguys view: Pryor is an incredible athlete with a strong arm, but he's not accurate as a passer. The Giants are likely just updating their emergency list.

The New York Giants have declared WR Corey Washington, OG Adam Snyder, DT Kerry Wynn, OT James Brewer, OT Brandon Mosley, DL Jay Bromley, RB Rashad Jennings inactive for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Washington was a UDFA sensation in training camp, and he could play a larger role in the red zone and as the biggest receiver on the roster, but for now he'll be a healthy scratch.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings to start running    Sat Oct 18, 08:47 AM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) intends to start running next week in a pool and on a machine that will alleviate pressure. Jennings is hoping to return in Week 9.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Giants as the offense was really limited last week without him and might be today. Andre Williams is a solid back but not much of a pass catcher or blocker--whereas Jennings can do both. You should have Jennings back after the team's Week 8 bye. We see Williams as a low-end RB2 with some upside in TD-premium leagues.

Footballguys view: A limited or out Rodgers-Cromartie would only help the Cowboys passing game this week.

New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle, hamstring) said he thinks he's around 60 percent healthy while dealing with an injury described as an IT band issue. No surgery has been discussed for Rodgers-Cromartie, which means the team will likely rest him through the bye week and then re-evaluate him.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings has target date    Thu Oct 16, 02:40 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) said he hopes to be able to play in the team's Week 9 game. Jennings said he is no longer wearing his knee brace every day and is only wearing it when he is sleeping.

Footballguys view: The Giants need him because having to rely on Andre Williams makes the offense too one-dimensional. Williams is a middling RB2 based on expected carries but he gets pulled on pass downs, so his upside is limited.

  Giants | Peyton Hillis favored on passing downs    Thu Oct 16, 02:18 PM

New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis played 31 snaps in the team's Week 6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles because the coaching staff doesn't yet trust RB Andre Williams on passing downs. Williams and Hillis are expected to share the workload in the backfield without RB Rashad Jennings (knee) again in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: Williams is not a good pass blocker and that's all there is to it. That's why the team missed Rashad Jennings so much--he allows them to have more versatility. We still see Williams as a decent RB2 as he'll get most of the carries, but if the Cowboys get an early lead and the Giants have to throw, Williams will be on the sideline anytime the team needs to pass and that will limit his upside.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle, hamstring) said he hopes to play in Week 7, but likely will miss the game if he is not able to practice Friday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: Potential good news for the likes of Dez Bryant (WR1), Terrance Williams (WR3) and even Jason Witten (TE2), though the Cowboys will still run the ball more than anything.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings hopes to return after bye    Wed Oct 15, 04:16 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) has been working out and feels better, and he's hoping he can return after the team's Week 8 bye. 'Getting better every day,' Jennings said. 'Just working out in the gym, getting lost in my music and doing everything I need to do so that when I get back, I'll be back up to speed where I was.' He plans to start running this week.

Footballguys view: This was the plan when the injury first hit. Jennings is the Giants best back, and he'll get his starting job back upon his return. Rookie Andre Williams could get a few short-yardage or goal-line carries as a backup behind Jennings.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) will definitely not play in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Jennings sprained the medial collateral ligament in his knee in Week 5. The team is hoping he can return after their bye week.

Footballguys view: Most reporters have speculated that Jennings would return after the team's Week 8 bye. Rookie Andre Williams and veteran Peyton Hillis will be relied on again, and Hillis could see additional snaps if QB Eli Manning is under heavy pressure.

Since then, he hasn't done much. Ogletree caught only 21 passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns split between stops in Tampa and Detroit last year.
