  Giants | Defensive line changes coming    Sat Oct 25, 12:37 AM

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 | Preston Parker work in the slot    Thu Oct 23, 12:55 AM

New York Giants WR Preston Parker took almost all of his snaps as the slot receiver in Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys, while WR Odell Beckham Jr. was sprinkled in at the spot for a few plays.

  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.

  Giants | Jon Beason considering surgery    Wed Oct 22, 09:35 AM

New York Giants LB Jon Beason (toe) said it was 50-50 whether he returns this year and will have to get clearance from a foot specialist to make sure surgery isn't the best long-term option. Surgery would end his season.

  Giants | Terrell Pryor working out    Tue Oct 21, 01:06 PM

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.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) said he's on schedule and hopes to play after the team's bye this week. He'll start running this week.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Giants here. Jennings is a fine all-purpose back who can give the team a much-needed shot in the arm.

  Giants | Week 7 Inactives    Sun Oct 19, 02:59 PM

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.

  Giants | Victor Cruz to have lengthy rehab    Fri Oct 17, 04:28 PM

New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle, hamstring) and LB Spencer Paysinger (hamstring) both were limited in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and are questionable for Week 7. LB Jon Beason (toe) and P Steve Weatherford (ankle) both fully practiced and are probable.

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

  Giants | Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie at 60 percent    Thu Oct 16, 04:01 PM

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 | Zackary Bowman may start    Thu Oct 16, 02:22 PM

New York Giants CB Zackary Bowman could start at cornerback in Week 7 if CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back, hamstring) is not able to play.

  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.

  Giants | Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie hopes to play    Thu Oct 16, 02:01 PM

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.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings ruled out    Wed Oct 15, 01:44 PM

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.

The New York Giants are signing free-agent WR Kevin Ogletree (Lions) Tuesday, Oct. 14, according to a source.

Footballguys view: There's not a lot of fantasy value here with Ogletree. He opened the 2012 season with an 8-catch, 114 yards, two-touchdown performance with the Cowboys. 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.

  Giants | Victor Cruz's career in jeopardy?    Tue Oct 14, 02:09 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) won't ever be the same after his season-ending knee injury, according to Dr. David Chao. "He can return to 100 percent, but it (his knee) is a car in a car accident," said Chao, a former NFL team physician. "Never brand new when fixed." There is no timetable for Cruz's rehab, and there is no prognosis for the rest of his career. His injury could rob him of his explosiveness and change-of-direction ability. A handful of NFL players have returned from this type of injury, but none of them discovered their elite form. A torn patellar tendon can't be fixed arthroscopically, so it needs a massive open procedure that will require lengthy and painful rehab. Cruz will need to rebuild the muscles around the tendon, and it'll likely be six months before he can even try to run again.

Footballguys view: These type of injuries are brutal for a player's recovery. Everybody loves Cruz, and we all hope he can return to his salsa-dancing ways. Unfortunately, that may not be the case. Keep an eye on his recovery and return next year.

  Giants | G-Men comfortable with WR options    Tue Oct 14, 01:07 PM

New York Giants WRs Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. are acceptable options to replace WR Victor Cruz (knee), according to head coach Tom Coughlin, with WR Preston Parker in the slot position. The Giants are content in not trading for another receiver from outside the organization. The only other healthy receiver on the current roster is WR Corey Washington.

Footballguys view: We'll see how this shakes out in the near future. Randle and Beckham are the primary players to focus on here. We like Beckham's athleticism and upside better, but he's been slowed down his rookie season by a nagging hamstring injury. Randle has the experience edge, but his play has been plagued by concentration problems throughout his career. Parker is also an interesting player to keep an eye on--but only in deeper leagues.

New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back) dealt with back spasms in Week 6, but his injury isn't considered serious. Head coach Tom Coughlin said the team could rest Rodgers-Cromartie in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, but they could also have him play and rest up during the bye the following week. CB Jayron Hosley was active for the first time in Week 6, and he may have to take over the nickel spot. CB Zackary Bowman filled in nicely for Rodgers-Cromartie.

  Giants | Odell Beckham could play the slot    Mon Oct 13, 04:06 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. could move to the slot with WR Victor Cruz (knee) out for the season, but Beckham has never played the position. WR Preston Parker filled in in the slot in Week 6 when Cruz was injured, and he can play on the outside, too. WR Corey Washington has worked exclusively on the outside and could see some more opportunities in the offense with Cruz out.

Footballguys view: The Giants have some options here. We think Beckham is best suited to play on the outside where his speed can take the top off the defense. Parker might be the best fit at slot now that Cruz is out for the year.
