General News (Thu Oct 30): did not practice on Thursday. Sources indicate that Jennings has been ruled out for Week 9.

General News (Tue Oct 28): 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.

Week 9: vs Indianapolis Colts

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Rashad Jennings just resumed running on Monday, October 28, which likely means we'll see a lot of the chugging Andre Williams again on Monday Night Football. He's plowed to 18/51/0 rushing with three targets for zero receptions at Dallas and 17/59/0 rushing at Philadelphia over the past two games during his time as the lead Giants' back. Let's just say he has under-performed expectations so far and leave it at that. The Colts' rush D didn't allow a rushing TD last week (unlike their pass D, which gave up six), holding the Steelers to 32/117/0 on the ground. Two weeks back, the Bengals had 12/32/0 rushing at Indianapolis - the defensive front has been stout of late. To date Indianapolis is the ninth-ranked rush D in the NFL averaging 99.2 yards given up per game, with seven rushing scores surrendered. This looks like a bad week to look for much production from the sputtering Williams.

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.

Our 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.

Our 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.

Our 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.
