Injury Expectations | Midweek Update | Week 16 - Footballguys

A review of the early week practice participation reports


***Todd Gurley missed practice today as he rests a sore knee. Sean McVay told reporters he expects Gurley to play after Gurley reported feeling better early this week. McVay then left the door open for Gurley to miss time saying, "If there's a chance he's going to do something that's going to set him back for the playoffs, that's where we have to make smart decisions." If Gurley doesn't return to limited practice on Thursday, his availability for this week will be in doubt.

***After a limited Friday practice and some slim hope of a return last weekend, James Conner did not practice on Wednesday. Multiple reports suggest Conner has not made enough progress with his high ankle sprain to return this week. That's not surprising -- the injury seemed to be a 3-4 week injury as soon as the Steelers ruled him out the first week. Watch for limited practice and a more optimistic expectation by Friday but Conner remains well to the doubtful side of questionable.

***Odell Beckham Jr missed another practice on Wednesday and Pat Shurmur wasn't reassuring about Beckham status. The most optimistic thing Shurmur said was that the Giants weren't yet planning to put Beckham on injured reserve. Beckham looks doubtful to return this week.
