  Giants | Victor Cruz still ailing    Sun Aug 30, 10:17 PM

  Giants | Victor Cruz out third preseason game    Thu Aug 27, 02:36 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) won't play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: We're a tad nervous about Cruz and Week 1 being a thing that happens. This continues to linger and while he is likely just being coddled a bit by the team, and he's supposed to be ready for Week 1, it's something to track. Raanan also recently told our own Andrew Garda in an interview that even if Cruz is back in time for the season, nobody is really sure if he'll be anything like his old self. Stay tuned.

  Giants | Odell Beckham quiet this preseason    Wed Aug 26, 07:05 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. has not caught a pass in the first two preseason games but is not worried about his lack of production.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners shouldn't be worried. Beckham is coming off the board at WR5 (1.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Giants | Weston Richburg misses practice    Wed Aug 26, 05:53 PM

New York Giants C Weston Richburg (knee) did not participate for the second straight day Wednesday, Aug. 26, because of a knee injury.

Footballguys view: The Giants have enough O-Line problems without this. The potential is there for the Giants to have an explosive offense--if the O-Line can protect Eli Manning.

  Giants | Victor Cruz out of practice    Wed Aug 26, 02:38 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf, knee) is out of practice Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Cruz was coming back strong from his major knee injury until this calf problem started. The team's going to be cautious with him in an effort to have him ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

  Giants | Landon Collins feeling better    Tue Aug 25, 05:37 PM

New York Giants SS Landon Collins (knee) said his injured knee is feeling better and that he's ready to get back on the field. Collins added that he hopes to practice Tuesday, Aug. 25, or Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: The Giants are in need of good news, and this is at least a little bit of it. Collins was supposed to be a big part of the secondary and with as many injuries to the safeties as the Giants have, having him getting closer to the field is a big deal.

  Giants | Weston Richburg misses practice    Tue Aug 25, 05:27 PM

New York Giants C Weston Richburg (knee) did not practice Tuesday, Aug. 25, due to a nagging left knee injury. Richburg isn't expected to miss the start of the regular season, however.

Footballguys view: Just what the Giants need--another injury. The offensive line is one we have rated 30th in the NFL right now and this doesn't help much. This is an offense which has a lot of potential, as it is now in year two of offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system. The injuries to the offensive line are a problem though, and Eli Manning (low end QB1) will have to be very quick with his reads and releases.

  Giants | Rueben Randle doing drills    Tue Aug 25, 03:15 PM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle (knee) participated in individual drills Tuesday, Aug. 25. Randle is dealing with knee tendinitis and did not play in Week 2 of the preseason.

  Giants | Return not known for Victor Cruz    Tue Aug 25, 02:39 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) doesn't know when he'll be able to return to practice as he continues to deal with inflammation in his calf. He is, however, confident that he will be able to play in the regular season opener against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Sept. 13.

Footballguys view: Outside of this recent inflammation problem, Cruz's recovery has gone off without a hitch. If he's ready to play in Week 1, then expect the Giants to ease him into action until he's closer to full strength.

  Giants | Victor Cruz still inflamed    Tue Aug 25, 12:36 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) said there is inflammation in his calf that is holding him back.

Footballguys view: Cruz was good to go through his recovery from major knee surgery, but now this calf problem is slowing him down. The Giants should manage him carefully wit the idea that he could be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

  Giants | Andre Williams could move up    Tue Aug 25, 12:20 PM

New York Giants RB Andre Williams could overtake RB Rashad Jennings as the lead back sometime this season, maybe even to open the season. Williams has worked on his receiving game this offseason and studied Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's patience with the ball.

Footballguys view: We're not sold on the idea of Williams taking over for Jennings. The Giants want to use a fast-paced offense, and Williams just isn't that type of back. He's a two-down banger who is limited as a receiver. We like Jennings and Shane Vereen a lot more than Williams in this backfield.

  Giants | Jon Beason could be ready for opener    Mon Aug 24, 03:10 PM

  Giants | Jason Pierre-Paul to report before season    Mon Aug 24, 01:36 PM

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (hand) plans to report to the team before the start of the regular season but his status for Week 1 is uncertain, according to sources.

Footballguys view: It will be interesting to see how things shake out here with Pierre-Paul and the Giants. According to reports, Pierre-Paul is making good progress in his rehab from the injuries.

  Giants | Jon Beason could miss several weeks    Sun Aug 23, 04:18 PM

  Giants | Bennett Jackson out for season    Sun Aug 23, 04:02 PM

New York Giants S Bennett Jackson (knee) has suffered a torn ACL and will miss the entire season, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.

Footballguys view: The Giants are already down to street free agents at safety. Not that Jackson was a big part of their plans, but hopefully at some point the depletion at the position ends for them. Tony Romo and Dez Bryant will get to break in this secondary in Week 1.

  Giants | Justin Currie fractures ankle    Sat Aug 22, 09:54 PM

New York Giants S Justin Currie (ankle) fractured his ankle in a preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Saturday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: The Giants might need some new FBI guys.... or safeties. The third safety to go down in the last two games, the second one for the season, just makes a bad looking defense even less stable.

  Giants | Jon Beason injures knee    Sat Aug 22, 09:29 PM

New York Giants LB Jon Beason (knee) left a preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Saturday, Aug. 22, with a sprained left knee and will not return.

Footballguys view: Just what the Giants need - another injury. It's looking grim for Big Blue with all these injuries and the team had issues last season when Beason was out early in the season. For as much money as they pay him, you'd think he might supplement his workout with some bionic limbs. This defense is in serious trouble.

  Giants | Rueben Randle not playing    Sat Aug 22, 03:06 PM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle (knee) is among the players that will be sidelined Saturday, Aug. 22, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Randle continually ends up sidelined. Early on this summer he looked earmarked for a solid role as the third receiver on this team but at this point, he may not be able to be healthy enough to be that. At this moment, he is no better than a WR5 or WR6.

  Giants | Rueben Randle not practicing again    Thu Aug 20, 05:23 PM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle (knee) missed practice again Thursday, Aug. 20, with knee tendinitis.

Footballguys view: Randle was supposed to be the third receiver but is dealing with knee tendinitis. He needs to get on the field if he is going to have an impact in that role. Right now we see him as a WR4 or WR5.

  Giants | Victor Cruz waiting for game action    Thu Aug 20, 04:48 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) has yet to play in a real football game since tearing his patellar tendon last season. He won't Saturday, Aug. 22, against the Philadelphia Eagles either. He is hoping to be able to play in at least one preseason game before the regular season starts, however. 'You want to go out there in real-time action and get some good, solid work in with everyone else and everyone ready to go, but that's not always the case,' Cruz said.

Footballguys view: NJ.com's Jordan Raanan recently said that even if Cruz is 100% healthy this season, nobody knows if he'll be what he was before the injury. He is also currently fighting a calf injury, sustained during the Wednesday, August 19th practice. Add in the Odell Beckham Jr factor and the injury-riddled offensive line, and you should keep your expectations lower than normal.

  Giants | Victor Cruz unlikely to play Saturday    Thu Aug 20, 12:45 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) likely will not play in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 22, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Cruz said he expects to be 100% in the near future.

Footballguys view: This means it was more than a cramp despite the Giants invoking dehydration as a cause. We'll want to see Cruz look like most of his old self on the field before recommending him strongly at ADP in the 8th/9th round.

  Giants | Odell Beckham not practicing    Wed Aug 19, 06:03 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (undisclosed) is not practicing Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Footballguys view: This could just be a day of rest for Beckham. However, it could be a sign that Beckham is not ready to return to action after dealing with a hamstring injury this training camp. He missed four games last year at the start of the season due to hamstring problems. The Giants are going to be careful with him as he deals with a hamstring problem this year.

  Giants | Eli Manning denies asking price    Wed Aug 19, 01:25 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has denied reports that have stated that he is looking to become the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL with his next contract. 'The reports are all wrong,' Manning said. 'That's never been said, it's never come out of my mouth, I've never said it to my agent, I don't know where people are getting their information.' The two sides have had contract extension talks but appear willing to wait until after the season to work on a deal.

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) won't practice Wednesday, Aug. 19, due to a calf injury.

Footballguys view: The team has said it's because of dehydration and not related to his knee, which hopefully means this is more of a cramp than a true injury. The Giants will have to put Dwayne Harris, James Jones, and Corey Washington in with the first team more often while Cruz and Rueben Randle are out.

  Giants | Eli Manning's desired contract details    Tue Aug 18, 08:18 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning is looking to be paid at least as much as QBs Philip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger, and he's not necessarily looking to be the highest paid player in football.

Footballguys view: Earlier this week, the Chargers agreed to terms with QB Philip Rivers on a four-year, $83.25 million extension through 2019, and we think Manning should get something similar.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning and the team have a 'significant gap' in their negotiations for a long-term contract extension.

  Giants | Eli Manning wants to be highest paid QB    Mon Aug 17, 07:22 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning wants to be the highest paid quarterback in the league, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com Monday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: Philip Rivers just signed a deal with the Chargers over the weekend that pays him $65 million in guarantees. Manning wants more money, and with two Super Bowl rings that Rivers doesn't have he might be able to get that. The two sides seem to be far apart in contract talks at this time.

Footballguys view: Holy cow. All reports have been positive about Cruz during his recovery, but we didn't expect him to play in the preseason at all--let alone the second preseason game. We can't wait to see him back on the field, but know that the team is going to be cautious upon his return.

  Giants | Rueben Randle may sit a few days    Sun Aug 16, 10:37 AM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle (knee) could miss a few days of practice so he can allow his knee to heal. Randle tried to play in the first preseason games but left early because of knee tendonitis.

Footballguys view: If it's just a few days, then Randle shouldn't be moved down on draft boards. His attractiveness as a second half of the draft upside play at wide receiver is tarnished a bit by this condition, which could pop up again in season, but he can recover and look good in the third preseason game, it will do a lot to restore confidence.

Footballguys view: Coach Coughlin was not handing out Werther's Originals to the wide receivers after the game. We'll see if the group responds with a better performance the next time out.

Footballguys view: Could Randle be less healthy than Victor Cruz going into the season? It is possible. We can't act in rankings until we get more information and Randle is just a back half of the draft flyer, but we would probably at least break ties against him until more is known.
