Giants Injury Tracker: Jalin Hyatt's rookie season ends vs. Eagles

Here is the latest news and possible return dates for Giants players...

Jan. 7, 5:07 p.m.

The Giants downgraded rookie wide receiver Jalin Hyatt (hamstring) to out for the rest of the game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor (thumb) returned in the second quarter.

Hyatt caught one pass for five yards before leaving in the first quarter.

He ends his rookie season with 23 receptions for 373 yards and no touchdowns in 17 games.

Jan. 7, 5:03 p.m.

Tyrod Taylor is questionable to return with a thumb injury, the Giants announced in the first quarter of Week 18 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Tommy DeVito replaced Taylor as New York's quarterback.

The Giants led 3-0 entering the second quarter.

Taylor was 4-of-6 passing for 72 yards, plus seven rushing yards on one carry.

DeVito completed his lone passing attempt of the first quarter for five yards.

Rookie wide receiver Jalin Hyatt (hamstring) is also questionable to return.

Jan. 5, 4:40 p.m.

A pair of Giants right tackles, Evan Neal and Tyre Phillips, both underwent surgery this week, the team announced on Friday

Neal had a procedure after sustaining a small fracture in his ankle on Tuesday by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, North Carolina. Neal originally sustained the ankle in early November at Las Vegas and was unable to return to action, limiting the former first-round draft pick to just seven games in his second NFL season.

Phillips, who tore his quadriceps in Big Blue’s Week 17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams last Sunday, underwent an operation on Tuesday in New York City with Dr. Scott Rodeo.

For the season finale in New England on Sunday, the Giants will be without safety Jason Pinnock who was ruled out Friday by head coach Brian Daboll with a toe injury. Daboll added that safety Dane Belton (personal) had returned to practice and could play in Pinnock’s place.

Rookie cornerback Deonte Banks (shoulder) is being listed as doubtful, but after being a limited participant in this week's practice.

Center John Michael Schmitz (shin) is now questionable and there are some signs that he will be active.

Jan. 1, 11:48 a.m.

Head coach Brian Daboll said Monday that offensive tackle Tyre Phillips suffered a torn quad against the Los Angeles Rams and will have surgery.

Phillips, 26, was carted off the field early in the fourth quarter on Sunday during the team's 26-25 loss. He suffered a knee injury earlier in the game and was forced to the blue medical tent, but was able to return before reinjuring himself later in the game.

The 6-foot-5 lineman was originally a third-round pick out of Mississippi State by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2020 NFL Draft. Phillips played in 22 games (13 starts) over two seasons with the Ravens and then signed with the Giants on Sept. 1, 2022. He played 12 games (five starts) with Big Blue last season, and was then released by the team in August before the start of the 2023 season.

Phillips signed to the Eagles practice squad on Sept. 4, was then signed to the Giants active roster on Oct. 17, and has played 10 games (nine starts) this year. He is set to be a free agent this offseason.

Dec. 31, 2:00 p.m.

Giants cornerback Jason Pinnock has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams due to a foot injury.

LA running back Kyren Williams appeared to land on Pinnock's ankle awkwardly on a play in the first quarter, and the veteran limped his way to the locker room.

Pinnock was initially ruled as questionable, before being downgraded to out midway through the second quarter. 

Offensive lineman Tyre Phillips was also carted off early on in the fourth quarter.

Phillips suffered an injury earlier in the game and was forced to the blue medical tent, but was able to return before reinjuring himself later in the game.

Dec. 31, 11:30 a.m.

Giants defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence is officially active for Sunday's Week 17 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.

Lawrence was limited at practice throughout the week due to a hamstring issue, but he appears ready to roll against the high-flying rams offense. 

Cornerback Deonte Banks, on the other hand, has been ruled out due to a shoulder injury he suffered late in that Monday night matchup with the Eagles.

The rookie has played well all year, limiting opponents top receivers week in and week out, but Big Blue will have the tall task of facing LA's star receivers Cooper Kupp and Puka Nakua without him.

The other inactives for this week include WR Parris Campbell, S Gervarrius Owens, OLB Benton Whitley, C Sean Harlow, WR Dennis Houston, and DT Timmy Horne.

Dec. 29, 2:40 p.m.

Giants cornerback Deonte Banks (shoulder) and wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson (quad) are questionable for Week 17 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Tight end Lawrence Cager (groin) is doubtful.

Banks, the Giants' first-round pick at No. 24 overall in the 2023 NFL Draft, has totaled 64 tackles (two for loss) and 11 pass breakups (two interceptions) while starting all 15 games this season.

Robinson, a second-year pro, has caught 49 passes for 385 yards (7.9 average) and one touchdown in 13 games (seven starts).

Cager, a member of the practice squad and active roster this year, has seen 11 games and made four receptions for 36 yards (9.0 average) and one touchdown.

Dec. 28, 5:10 p.m.

Two key members of the Giants' defense appear to be banged up heading into the team's Week 17 matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.

Rookie cornerback Deonte Banks and star defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence were able to return to Thursday's practice, but they did so in limited fashion.

Banks missed Wednesday's practice after leaving last week's game against the Eagles due to a shoulder injury, but he was able to get back out there for individual drills this afternoon. 

Lawrence returned to his usual spot in the middle of Big Blue's defense Monday night, but it appears he may still be a bit hindered by his hamstring injury this week.

Dec. 25, 3:12 p.m.

The Giants defense got a boost as defensive linemen Dexter Lawrence (hamstring) and A’Shawn Robinson (back) are expected to play Monday at the Philadelphia Eagles.

Wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins, who was a late addition to the injury report on Sunday with an illness, is also active and expected to continue. Running back Gary Brightwell (hamstring), who was listed as questionable, is also active.

Big Blue listed wide receiver Parris Campbell, safety Gervarrius Owens, outside linebackers Boogie Basham and Benton Whitley, center Sean Harlow, tight end Lawrence Cager and nose tackle Rakeem Nunez-Roches as inactive against the Eagles.

Dec. 24, 12:48 p.m.

The Giants added wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins to the team's final injury report for Week 16's game at the Philadelphia Eagles.

Hodgins is questionable with an illness.

He joins running back Gary Brightwell (hamstring), tight end Lawrence Cager (groin) and defensive linemen Dexter Lawrence (hamstring) and A'Shawn Robinson (back) among the questionable Giants.

Right tackle Evan Neal (ankle) and defensive lineman Rakeem Nunez-Roches (knee) were already ruled out for Monday's 4:30 p.m. kickoff.

Dec. 23, 3:40 p.m.

Despite being considered questionable for Monday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, DL Dexter Lawrence said he expects to play after logging his first practice of the week on Saturday.

Lawrence had been sidelined all week with a hamstring injury he sustained against the New Orleans Saints and his status for Monday was up in the air. While it’s encouraging the 26-year-old practiced in some capacity this week and aired his desire to play, it won’t be certain until before game time.

RB Gary Brightwell (hamstring), TE Lawrence Cager (groin) and DL A’Shawn Robinson (back) are also considered questionable for Big Blue’s division battle with the Eagles.

Meanwhile, T Evan Neal (ankle) and DL Rakeem Nunez-Roches (knee) have been ruled out for the contest.

Dec. 21, 1:09 p.m.

The Giants have placed kicker Randy Bullock on season-ending IR.

Bullock left last Sunday's loss to the Saints early after injuring his hamstring, with punter Jamie Gillan filling in.

With Bullock now out for the season, Cade York will become the starting kicker.

Bullock is the second Giants kicker to be lost for the season, joining Graham Gano.

Gano's season ended on Nov. 4 due to a left knee injury that required surgery.

Dec. 17, 11:30 a.m.

Darren Waller is officially active as he makes his return to the Giants' lineup for Sunday's road contest against the New Orleans Saints.

The star tight end was listed as questionable heading into the matchup after being activated off IR Saturday, but it appears his hamstring is ready to go.

Prior to the injury, Waller had gotten off to a bit of a disappointing start to his time with the Giants, hauling in just 36 receptions for 384 yards and a touchdown through eight games.

Getting him back out there will certainly be a nice boost for undrafted rookie quarterback Tommy DeVito, though, as he looks to try to push New York's winning streak to four games.

Additionally, left guard Justin Pugh is active and ready to go for this afternoon's contest after being listed as questionable heading in with a calf injury.

Dec. 16, 11:45 p.m.

Darren Waller, who was listed as questionable due to a hamstring injury, is expected to play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Waller has not played since Oct. 29 and he was activated off the injured reserve earlier on Saturday. The TE has 36 receptions for 384 yards and a touchdown in eight games this season.

The 31-year-old said he had "no issues" with his hamstring after practicing this week and should help provide a spark for Big Blue's offense for the remainder of the season.

Dec. 16, 4:25 p.m.

Giants tight end Darren Waller was trending upward to play this Sunday against the Saints and it looks like he's ready.

According to multiple reports, Waller will be activated off of injured reserve by the Giants on Saturday and be on the roster for their Week 15 matchup against New Orleans.

Waller practiced and took team reps this week and said he had "no issues" with the hamstring injury that has put him on the shelf for weeks. At 5-8, the Giants are just one game out of a potential Wild Card spot.

Dec. 15, 3:42 p.m.

Darren Waller had "no issues" with his hamstring this week at practice and said he was even able to run the full route tree. The veteran tight end thought it all went well and fully expects to play on Sunday in New Orleans, but with a limited workload.

If the Giants activate Waller from IR prior to Sunday's game -- they have until 4 p.m. on Saturday to do so -- it will be his first game action since Oct. 29 against the Jets. He is officially listed as questionable.

The 31-year-old has 36 receptions for 384 yards and a touchdown in eight games this season.

Evan Neal (ankle) was officially listed as doubtful while DL Dexter Lawrence (hamstring) and OL Justin Pugh (calf) also appeared on the injury report and listed as questionable for Sunday.

Lawrence and Pugh were both limited participants in Friday's practice along with WR Wan'Dale Robinson (quad) and LB Cam Brown (hamstring), although neither Robinson nor Brown were given a status for Sunday.

Dec. 15, 11:36 a.m.

Even Neal (ankle) is expected to be listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Neal was listed as limited in practice on Wednesday, which was a projection since practice was a walkthrough.

The former first-round pick has missed the last four games with his injury. 

Dec. 14, 12:25 p.m.

After being placed on IR with a hamstring injury suffered in October, the Giants designated Darren Waller to return from injured reserve on Thursday.

The tight end will begin practicing with the hope of playing Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

“Just a matter of them opening up the window and I’ll be at practice,” Waller told reporters after Wednesday's practice. “So whenever that is, I’ll be out there.”

Head coach Brian Daboll told reporters Wednesday that Waller was progressing and that he's "getting closer." The team will need to activate Waller by Saturday afternoon for him to be eligible to play Sunday.

In eight games this season, Waller has 36 receptions for 384 yards and one touchdown.

Head coach Brian Daboll told reporters on Wednesday that everyone currently on the roster will do "everything today." When asked to clarify, Daboll said that Wednesday's practice was more of a walkthrough.

About the availability of tight end Darren Waller (hamstring), Daboll said "We'll see where we're at here, making progress. Getting closer."

Waller has been dealing with his hamstring injury since October, and has played in just eight games this season.

When asked if there's a "strong desire" to get both players back on the field, Daboll said, "Yeah, whenever they're ready to go, then we'll have a plan for them."

Dec. 11, 6:46 p.m.

Defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence (hamstring) is active for the Giants' Monday Night Football game against the Green Bay Packers. Lawrence last played Nov. 19, a 31-19 win at the Washington Commanders.

Wide receiver Parris Campbell (knee), who played in the Giants' last game, a 10-7 win over the New England Patriots Nov. 26, is among five inactive players for New York. The others are running back Jashaun Corbin, right tackle Evan Neal (ankle) outside linebacker Boogie Basham and safety Gervarrius Owens.

Dec. 9, 12:20 p.m.

There are positive indications that defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence will play Monday night against the Green Bay Packers after he missed Big Blue’s win over New England before the bye a fortnight ago.

Lawrence (hamstring) again practiced – for the third-straight day – on Saturday and head coach Brian Daboll is “hopeful” about him playing, adding the standout DT snuck in some team reps at Friday’s session.

"He did some individual stuff yesterday and then he did team periods, which was a good thing to see," Daboll said. "He’ll do the same thing [Saturday] and hopefully he’ll be ready to go in a couple days here. That would be the plan."

New York will list Lawrence as questionable, as they will with fellow defensive lineman A’Shawn Robinson (hamstring) – who practiced again Saturday, and inside linebacker Isaiah Simmons.

Tight end Daniel Bellinger (illness) missed his second-straight practice on Saturday and will be questionable for Monday.

Right tackle Evan Neal (ankle) will miss his fourth straight game as he has been ruled out by Daboll.

Dec. 6, 4:53 p.m.

Darren Waller will not come off of injured reserve ahead of Monday night’s game against Green Bay, but the tight end is optimistic that he will be able to return for the Giants’ Week 15 game in New Orleans.

Waller is eligible to come off IR now after missing five straight games with a hamstring injury. In eight games this season, his first in New York, the tight end has 36 catches for 384 yards and one touchdown.

There was a less optimistic tone around right tackle Evan Neal (ankle) returning to practice this week and it appears he will miss his fourth straight game, as he told reporters that he isn’t sure how close he is to getting back.

“Whenever that day gets here, that's when it gets here," Neal told reporters. "Hell yeah I’m gonna go back out there this season, but I'm just gonna see where I'm at, see how I progress and move forward from there."

Neal added that while he still has pain in his ankle, “It’s football.”

“I mean sometimes you’ve got to play through pain,” the second-year tackle said. “But I do want to make sure whenever I do go back out on the field, I’ll be ready. I’ll definitely have bullets in my gun to shoot with because anybody would never want to go into a war without any bullets in their gun, and that’s where I’m at.”

Head coach Brian Daboll did say he was “hopeful” that defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence (hamstring) will be on the practice field Friday. Lawrence was held out for the second straight day on Wednesday but there was some optimism on that front.

Dec. 5, 1:25 p.m.

Coming out of the bye, the Giants will get quarterback Tyrod Taylor back from injured reserve but are still waiting on three other players.

Head coach Brian Daboll said defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence (hamstring) and right tackle Evan Neal (ankle) will not practice on Tuesday.

Daboll was optimistic that Lawrence could return to practice later this week ahead of Monday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

Darren Waller (hamstring) is eligible to return from IR this week and is “making progress,” Daboll said, but it is more likely than not that the tight end will not return to practice this week but he did not want to rule it out.

Dec. 4, 9:54 a.m.

Tyrod Taylor's practice window will be opened this week, reports Ian Rapaport of

Taylor, who has been out since injuring his ribs against the Jets in Week 8, could be an option to replace Tommy DeVito as the starting quarterback.

The Giants, 4-8, are coming off their bye. They face the Packers in Week 14.

Nov. 26, 11:30 a.m.

The Giants will be without a big piece in the middle of their defense Sunday afternoon against the Patriots.

After missing practice all week due to a lingering hamstring issue, star defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence has been listed among those inactive for this afternoon's contest.

Seventh-round pick Jordan Riley is active this week and expected to take on more of a role in the All Pro DT's absence.

Wide receiver Darius Slayton surprisingly will also be active, despite being listed as doubtful entering the matchup due to a neck injury.

The rest of Big Blue's inactives for this week include; running back Jashaun Corbin, safety Gervarrius Owens, linebacker Boogie Basham, and offensive lineman Evan Neal.

Nov. 24, 12:45 p.m.

Initially considered unable to practice on Friday according to head coach Brian Daboll, wide receiver Darius Slayton (neck) felt better and was on the field practicing after being a limited participant on Thursday.

However, defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence (hamstring) did not practice as he continues to be sidelined. The 26-year-old did not practice at all this week.

Daboll said both players will be game-time decisions on Sunday.

Nov. 23, 2:45 p.m.

Defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence (hamstring) and offensive tackle Evan Neal (ankle) did not practice Thursday, the Giants' Thanksgiving injury report revealed ahead of Week 12's 1 p.m. game against the Patriots.

Wide receiver Darius Slayton (neck), defensive lineman A'Shawn Robinson (back), linebacker Bobby Okereke (hip/rib) and defensive back Tre Hawkins (shoulder) were limited.

Running backs Saquon Barkley (not injury related, rest) and Eric Gray (ankle); wide receiver Sterling Shepard (hip); offensive linemen John Michael Schmitz (finger), Andrew Thomas (knee) and Tyre Phillips (illness); and defensive backs Adoree' Jackson (concussion) and Bobby McCain (illness) were full participants.

Nov. 22, 12:35 p.m.

Head coach Brian Daboll provided injury updates for a slew of his players before Wednesday's practice including cornerback Adoree' Jackson who is "making strides" and will be back on the practice field in a non-contact way as he remains in concussion protocol.

As for those who will not be practicing, wide receiver Darius Slayton (neck), running back Saquon Barkley (rest), offensive tackle Evan Neal (knee), linebacker Bobby Okereke (hip/ribs) and defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence (hamstring) will not be on the field.

Daboll said that Slayton's injury is not considered long-term and that he still has a chance to play on Sunday. He also mentioned that the team opened running back Eric Gray's 21-day window to be activated from the IR on Wednesday. The rookie hasn't played since Week 7 with a calf injury.

Finally, quarterback Daniel Jones underwent what the team called "successful" surgery to repair his ACL Wednesday morning at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Nov. 18, 12:45 p.m.

The Giants added Bobby McCain to the injury report on Saturday, listing the safety as questionable for Sunday’s game at the Washington Commanders due to an illness.

However, McCain like offensive tackle Evan Neal and cornerback Adoree' Jackson (who are both listed as out) will not travel with the team to Washington, so it would seem to be highly unlikely he will feature in the Week 11 matchup against one of his former teams.

Nov. 17, 3:54 p.m.

The Giants will be without Adoree' Jackson and Evan Neal when they face the Commanders on Sunday in Washington, D.C.

Jalin Hyatt and Kayvon Thibodeaux -- who are both looking to return after suffering concussions -- practiced on Friday and are no longer on the injury report.

Andrew Thomas, who is dealing with a knee injury, is listed as questionable.

Nov. 15, 12:48 p.m.

Running sprints before Wednesday's practice, quarterback Tyrod Taylor (ribs) is making progress with his injury but is still not ready to return to the field, head coach Brian Daboll told reporters.

Daboll also confirmed that Tommy DeVito's shoulder is OK after he hurt it against the Dallas Cowboys, and that he be will be the starting QB for the Giants on Sunday when they face the Washington Commanders.

Nov. 12, 6:30 p.m.

Giants linebacker Kayvon Thibodeaux has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys due to a concussion.

The former first-round pick had been quiet in the contest through three quarters of play, but he's enjoyed a tremendous season, picking up 8.5 sacks and 14 tackles through eight games.

Wide receiver Jalin Hyatt has also been downgraded to out after suffering a concussion of his own during a Dallas interception in the third quarter.

Nov. 12, 5:40 p.m.

LT Andrew Thomas has returned in the second quarter after suffering a knee injury against the Cowboys.

Thomas went to the blue tent and ended up being carted off after getting his left leg rolled up on on an inside handoff to running back Saquon Barkley.

Getting the former All-Pro back out there is a big boost for the Big Blue offense.

Nov. 12, 4:55 p.m.

Giants left tackle Andrew Thomas sustained an apparent left leg injury and walked into the blue medical tent before he took a cart to the locker room in the first quarter against the Dallas Cowboys.

On the second play of New York’s second offensive series, Thomas got his left leg rolled up on a handoff to Saquon Barkley. The team says he is questionable to return with a knee injury.

Justin Pugh came in at left tackle to replace Thomas on the third down play. The Giants were already without tackle Evan Neal and guard Mark Glowinski.

Nov. 11, 4:45 p.m.

The Giants activated OLB Azeez Ojulari from injured reserve to the active roster on Saturday. However, Ojulari remains questionable on the Giants injury report. Ojulari was first placed on IR back on Oct. 15, but has not played since Oct. 2 against the Seattle Seahawks.

OG Mark Glowinski, who was questionable due to what the team is calling a "personal matter," has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

New York did elevate kicker Randy Bullock and TE Tyree Jackson from the practice squad for their Week 10 matchup.

Nov. 10, 2:08 p.m.

Giants offensive tackle Evan Neal (ankle) and cornerback Adoree' Jackson (concussion/neck) are out for Week 10 at the Dallas Cowboys, head coach Brian Daboll told reporters two days before Sunday's 4:25 p.m. kickoff. Running back Deon Jackson (concussion) also will not play, Daboll said.

The Giants released the official status report more than an hour later. It included wide receiver Parris Campbell (hamstring), running back Jashaun Corbin (hamstring), offensive guard Mark Glowinski (personal matter) and outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari (ankle) as questionable.

Neal and Adoree' Jackson suffered their injuries in the second half of New York's 30-6 Week 9 loss at the Las Vegas Raiders.

Ojulari, whom the Giants placed on injured reserve Oct. 15, has not played since Oct. 2 against the Seattle Seahawks. In two games this season, Ojulari has made two tackles.

Nov. 8, 2:47 p.m.

A few days after suffering a torn ACL against the Las Vegas Raiders, Daniel Jones told reporters that he will have surgery in a few weeks so he can let the swelling subside and work on his range of motion before going under the knife.

Out for the remainder of this season, Jones was asked if he’ll be ready for the start of next season as the recovery time for an ACL surgery takes between six and 12 months.

“The goal is to be ready and fully healthy as soon as possible,” he said.

Jones also gave some more insight into his injury, which he believes happened on the final play of the first quarter when he was sacked. The 26-year-old quarterback went back out onto the field to start the second quarter and was immediately sacked again, which prompted him to leave the game.

Sunday’s game in Las Vegas was the first time Jones was back on the field since Week 5 against the Miami Dolphins, when he left after injuring his neck. He missed three games due to the injury but told reporters that he won’t need surgery on his neck, leaving him to focus on rehabbing his knee.

Nov. 8, 12:24 p.m.

Head coach Brian Daboll said on Wednesday that OLB Azeez Ojulari, who hasn't played a game since Oct. 8 against the Miami Dolphins when he injured his ankle, will have his 21-day window to return from IR opened before Wednesday’s practice.

A return against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday is a possibility for Ojulari as the Giants have not yet ruled him out with Daboll saying, “Hopefully he’ll be ready to go.”

Meanwhile, Daboll also told reporters that OT Evan Neal (ankle) will be out for a bit after he was forced to leave the game last week against the Las Vegas Raiders and that CB Adoree' Jackson and RB Deon Jackson are both in concussion protocol.

Finally, Daboll confirmed that QB Tommy DeVito will make his first career start on Sunday with QB Matt Barkley, who was recently signed to the active roster, serving as his backup.

Nov. 5, 8:44 p.m.

An ankle injury forced right tackle Evan Neal out of the Giants' Week 9 game at the Las Vegas Raiders, New York announced late in the fourth quarter.

Trainers checked out Neal's left ankle. He had just returned this week from an injury to his right ankle that sidelined him for the previous two games.

Cornerback Adoree' Jackson (concussion) and quarterback Daniel Jones (right knee) were also ruled out earlier in the game. Jones, whose game ended on the first play of the second quarter, is feared to have torn his ACL, per multiple reports.

Nov. 5, 6:25 p.m.

Giants cornerback Adoree' Jackson left New York's Week 9 game at the Las Vegas Raiders in the second quarter due to an apparent injury, and New York ruled him out with a concussion several minutes into the third quarter.

Jackson, who previously battled a neck injury, made one tackle in the first half and entered Sunday with 25 tackles and three pass breakups through seven games this season.

Before Jackson's announcement, the Giants ruled out Jones due to a knee injury.

Nov. 5, 3:18 p.m.

Good news for the Giants ahead of their Week 9 matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders: both Evan Neal and Andrew Thomas are active, the team announced.

Neal has missed the past two games due to an ankle injury, while Thomas hasn't played since injuring his hamstring in Week 1 against the Cowboys.

It's perfect timing for Big Blue, which will get its top two offensive lineman back at the same time as QB Daniel Jones' return to the field following a neck injury that caused him to miss three games.

Additionally, kicker Cade York, safety Gervarrius Owens, OL Sean Harlow, OT Joshua Miles, DL Jordon Riley, and RB Jashaun Corbin are inactive.

Nov. 4, 5:00 p.m.

Not long after the Giants announced Darren Waller was not traveling to Las Vegas to take on the Raiders, Big Blue revealed Saturday evening that the tight end and backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor will be placed on injured reserve.

The designation forces both players to be out a minimum of four games.

Taylor left last Sunday's game against the Jets with a rib injury while Waller is dealing with a hamstring injury.

Nov. 4, 2:00 p.m.

Already ruled out for Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, the Giants announced on Saturday that Darren Waller will also not be traveling with the team for their road contest against the Las Vegas Raiders.

This news doesn’t bode well for the tight end as the last time Big Blue made such an announcement on a Saturday about an injured player it was regarding Azeez Ojulari who was later placed on IR that same day.

Nov. 3, 11:24 a.m.

The Giants could be getting two key pieces of their offensive line back for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Andrew Thomas and Evan Neal are both improving, will take team reps during practice on Friday, and will be listed as questionable, head coach Brian Daboll told reporters.

Thomas hasn't played since injuring his hamstring in Week 1 against the Cowboys. And his return was delayed after he aggravated his hamstring while practicing a few weeks ago.

"We'll see," Thomas said after practice. "This is the most I've done, this practice that we just had. If it responds well, I think I'll have a good chance."

Neal has missed the past two games due to an ankle injury.

While Thomas and Neal could be back, the season is over for kicker Graham Gano, who is undergoing surgery on his knee and being placed on IR.

The Giants have brought in kickers Cade York and Randy Bullock, who will compete for Gano's spot.

Nov. 2, 1:31 p.m.

Head coach Brian Daboll told reporters on Thursday that both tight end Darren Waller (hamstring) and quarterback Tyrod Taylor (ribs) have been ruled out for Sunday against Las Vegas, and Daboll would not rule out an IR stint for either player.

If Waller and/or Taylor end up on injured reserve, they will be out for a minimum of four weeks. Placing them on IR this week would mean the earliest they could return is the Dec. 11 game against the Green Bay Packers.

Waller indicated on Wednesday that he could potentially be sidelined for multiple weeks, so an IR stint certainly seems very possible.

Nov. 1, 3:15 p.m.

Unfortunately for tight end Darren Waller, injuries have been a huge part of his NFL career, and it sounds like his latest injury could keep him sidelined for multiple weeks.

Waller, who injured his hamstring in Sunday’s loss to the Jets, told reporters on Wednesday that it would potentially be “weeks” before he’s back on the field.

“Potentially, yeah,” Waller replied when asked if the injury could keep him off the field for multiple weeks. “The amount of weeks, not that sure, but yeah, it may take a little bit.”

Waller said that he’s “a little less sore” than he was after Sunday’s game, but he wasn’t on the practice field on Wednesday and it seems almost certain that he won’t be able to play on Sunday against his former team, the Las Vegas Raiders.

Waller missed a combined 17 games in 2021-22, as he dealt with a handful of injuries, including to his ankle, knee and hamstring.

In eight games with the Giants this season, Waller has 36 catches for 384 yards and one touchdown.

Oct. 31, 11:50 p.m.

Quarterback Daniel Jones confirmed that he's been cleared to play on Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders.

During his weekly spot on the "Up & Adams" show, Jones said that while the doctors weren't able to clear him during the week, he met with them again on Sunday and was able to passes the necessary tests.

"I’m feeling good, feeling better. Yeah, I’m cleared, so ready to go and go through the week and get ready to play on Sunday," Jones said.

He added: "I met with the doctors in the week and didn’t pass the tests at that point. I was closer but still hadn’t passed the test. And then all of the doctors come to the game so I met with them at the game and got cleared for this week. So yeah, I was happy about that.

"I went through the tests throughout the week and couldn’t pass, so they didn’t feel good about clearing me last week, but on Sunday I met with them again and they cleared me for this week."

Jones said that barring any setbacks during the week, he'll be ready to start on Sunday in Las Vegas.

Oct. 30, 12:25 p.m.

Daniel Jones met with doctors and “will be ready to go next week,” Giants head coach Brian Daboll said Monday.

Jones is expected to return to practice as a full participant on Wednesday ahead of Big Blue’s Week 9 trip to Las Vegas.

Doctors cleared for contact before the game on Sunday, but after being ruled out on Friday, Jones was not eligible to start or serve as the backup.

“I go by the doctors, so when they tell me he’s out, he’s out,” the head coach added, when asked about the timeline of why Jones was ruled out Friday ahead of a pregame exam Sunday morning. Daboll said he only knew Jones had been cleared after falling to the Jets in overtime.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor remains in the hospital on Monday with a rib injury, Daboll said.

“He’s got ribs, I’m not going to get into what they are, he’s pretty sore, I assume he’s gonna be out, can’t tell you when but he’s got sore ribs right now,” he said, adding Taylor is not in any danger and “ok in that regard.”

Daboll said there isn’t a concern about the health of kicker Graham Gano, who missed two field goals including a 35-yarder with under 30 seconds to play.

Oct. 30, 9:15 p.m.

Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has been cleared for contact, according to multiple reports.

Jones was examined before Sunday’s game and was cleared for contract at that time, but having already been ruled out on Friday was still not eligible to suit up. He is now in line to return to the field next Sunday in Las Vegas after missing three games with a neck injury, as first reported by the New York Post's Ryan Dunleavy.

It comes at a good time for Big Blue who lost backup QB Tyrod Taylor to a rib injury in the first half of a 13-10 overtime defeat to the Jets.

Jones took the majority of the scout team reps last week ahead of facing the Jets splitting time with Tommy DeVito, who struggled after he entered the game in relief of Taylor.

Oct. 29, 6:23 p.m.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor was hospitalized after exiting the Giants' 13-10 overtime loss to the Jets with Big Blue described as an "injury to his rib cage."

The Giants announced that he "was taken to Hackensack Medical Center for further examination and testing."

"He will remain in HUMC overnight for observation," the Giants said in a statement.

Taylor left the game after a sack at the second quarter's 7:39 mark with the Giants trailing the Jets 7-3.

"Prayers go out to him," said Giants head coach Brian Daboll. "I hope he's OK."

He completed 4 of 7 passes for eight yards while adding 33 rushing yards on five carries and taking two sacks.

Oct. 29, 2:44 p.m.

The injury bug got worse for the Giants as Tyrod Taylor was forced to leave the game with an apparent injury in the second quarter.

Just before halftime, the Giants announced Taylor left with a rib injury and will not return to the game.

Playing for the injured Daniel Jones, Taylor's injury meant Tommy DeVito came in to play quarterback. The injury came moments after Darren Waller had to leave the game as well.

Oct. 29, 2:03 p.m.

Tight end Darren Waller was forced to exit the game vs. the Jets in the second quarter with a hamstring injury and he will not return as he has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Waller had one catch for four yards before his injury.

Oct. 29, 10:37 a.m.

Daniel Jones has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, and reports indicate he could miss next week's game against the Raiders as well before a possible return in Week 10 against Dallas.

As it turns out, Jones' neck injury seems to be affecting other parts of his body.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Jones' injury has caused "significant weakness" in his left, non-throwing arm. While Jones has "regained a lot of strength," he has still yet to be cleared for contact.

The Giants maintain that Jones' injury isn't season-ending, but it sounds like it will be at least two more games before fans see him back on the field.

Oct. 28, 5:30 p.m.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Saturday that the Giants are looking toward Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys as a potential return date for injured quarterback Daniel Jones, provided there are no setbacks.

Jones, who was ruled out on Friday for the third straight week with a neck injury, has not yet been cleared for contact, making next week's game against the Las Vegas Raiders an unlikely scenario, per Schefter.

Giants head coach Brian Daboll would not commit to a 2023 return on Friday, aside from Jones was "getting better." Those comments led to speculation, including from SNY's Connor Hughes, on whether or not Jones would play again this season.

The Giants will continue to rely on Tyrod Taylor in Jones' absence. The 34-year-old veteran has thrown for 571 yards and two touchdowns with no turnovers in two starts thus far this season.

Oct. 27, 2:20 p.m.

The Giants listed tackleAndrew Thomas (hamstring) as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Jets, after ruling out quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) and running back Gary Brightwell (hamstring) earlier on Friday.

Big Blue listed five players as questionable including cornerback Adoree’ Jackson (neck), tackle Evan Neal (ankle) and center John Michael Schmitz (shoulder) who did not play in last week's win over the Washington Commanders, as well as linebacker Kayvon Thibodeaux (knee) and tight end Darren Waller (hamstring).

Oct. 27, 11:43 a.m.

The Giants will be without quarterback Daniel Jones, head coach Brian Daboll announced Friday.Tyrod Taylor will make his third straight start, in Week 8 against the Jets.

“He’s getting better, he’s getting better,” Daboll said, noting the quarterback is doing non-contact stuff on the practice field, throwing and taking scout team repetitions, which he began to do last week. “I never expect anything with injuries. Whatever the medical people tell me, that’s what I go with… Take it one day at a time, but he’s getting closer.”

Daboll added of Jones’ practice work: “I meet with the trainers and the doctors what they tell me he can do, that’s what we do.”

Daboll was asked if he stood by his statement that Jones would play again this season and answered with: “I’m not gonna go back to that [previous statement.] I just say he’s getting better and see where he is next week.”

When asked again if he stood by his previous statement, Daboll again said Jones is getting better and they will see where the QB is next week.

He added: “I don’t have a crystal ball with injuries. He is getting better and we’ll see where he is next week.”

When pressed that he was being less declarative about that answer about Jones’ return to the field than in the past the head coach said, “Yup.”

“Again, I just go with the information that I get and today he was out, he’s getting better and we’ll see where he is next week,” Daboll said.

Gary Brightwell was also ruled out, Daboll said, due to a hamstring injury after the running back did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday.

When asked about tackle Andrew Thomas’ status, the head coach said that he is “getting better” and “doing different things” as far as possibly taking team reps while recovering from a hamstring injury, but did not reveal his status for Sunday’s game.

John Michael Schmitz, who took team reps on Thursday, is also in contention to play after sustaining a shoulder injury against Seattle depending on Friday’s practice, Daboll said.

Oct. 25, 12:29 p.m.

The Giants are getting healthier heading into Sunday's meeting with the Jets, but quarterback remains a huge question mark.

Head coach Brian Daboll told reporters on Wednesday that Daniel Jones has still not been cleared for contact and will not take part in any team reps. If Jones can't go again on Sunday, Tyrod Taylor would make his third straight start.

Meanwhile, in better news, offensive linemen Andrew Thomas (hamstring) and John Michael Schmitz (shoulder) will return to practice in a limited capacity.

Thomas has played in just one game this season and hasn't practiced since prior to the Seahawks matchup in Week 4 when he reportedly suffered a setback.

Schmitz hasn't played since the Seattle game on Oct. 2.

Oct. 24, 1:37 p.m.

The Giants' hope is for Daniel Jones to return this Sunday against the Jets, and Jones said on Tuesday that it's his goal to be back.

"Still working through it and got to continue to improve. Yeah, the goal is to play on Sunday and be out there with the guys," Jones said during an appearance on the Up & Adams show, via The New York Post.

Jones has missed the last two games due to a neck injury he suffered while getting sacked against the Dolphins in Week 5 in Miami.

He returned to practice on a limited basis last week and was listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Washington Commanders, but Tyrod Taylor got the start as Jones remained inactive.

Jones threw last week during practice, but wasn't cleared for contact. And he said on Tuesday that he still hasn't cleared every hurdle to return.

"It’s passing some of those tests and showing the doctors and trainers what I need to show them for them to feel good about me being out there," Jones said. "It’s following their protocols and their plan, their treatment, their rehab stuff and showing that I’m ready to go."

Oct. 22, 12:00 p.m.

Not that it should come as much of a surprise, but quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) is officially inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Washington Commanders.

Andrew Thomas (hamstring), Adoree' Jackson (neck), John Michael Schmitz (shoulder) and Evan Neal (ankle) are among the other inactives for Big Blue.

Oct. 22, 9:30 a.m.

All-Pro left tackle Andrew Thomas hasn’t been able to play since the season opener against Dallas, but it sounds like he could be back next week.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Giants are “targeting” for Thomas to return next Sunday against the Jets.

Schefter also reports that Thomas suffered a setback with his hamstring injury while trying to practice leading up to the Week 4 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, which has led the Giants to be “extra cautious” with him returning.

Oct. 21, 7:03 p.m.

The Giants' Week 7 matchup with the Washington Commanders is less than 24 hours away and it seems Big Blue will be without their starting quarterback for the second week in a row.

According to's Ian Rapoport, Daniel Jones will not play this Sunday but is "trending in the right direction."

Jones missed last week's game against the Bills due to a neck injury but has practiced without any contact this week. Head coach Brian Daboll told reporters Friday that Jones had a chance to play but it seems that he will not be able to make it.

The Giants elevated Tommy DeVito from the practice squad on Saturday, which lends credence to Jones' status.

Oct. 20, 2:25 p.m.

Offensive linemen Andrew Thomas (hamstring), John Michael Schmitz (shoulder) and Matt Peart (shoulder) are out for the Giants' Week 7 game against the Washington Commanders while quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) still has a chance to play, head coach Brian Daboll told reporters two days before the 1 p.m. kickoff.

"He'll be out here today, doing some stuff," Daboll said of Jones, who is still not cleared for contact but listed as questionable on New York's pregame injury report.

"We'll see," Daboll added. "We're talking to medical people and just take it day by day here."

Offensive tackle Evan Neal (ankle) and cornerback Adoree' Jackson (neck) are also questionable.

Oct. 19, 12:50 p.m.

Daniel Jones will practice on a limited basis again on Thursday after having the same designation on Wednesday, but he is still not cleared for contact, head coach Brian Daboll told reporters.

Jones is able to throw, but being unable to take contact at this point makes him returning for Week 7 against the Commanders seem unlikely.

“I'm close, I'm pretty close,” Jones said on Wednesday. “I just gotta keep doing what I'm doing and trust the doctors and trainers what they're telling me to do and keep going about it.”

He added:

"At this point, we're just taking it day-by-day and seeing how I feel that day and going through the tests. Sunday's a little ways away at this point, just trying to get better every day."

Oct. 19, 11:58 a.m.

The hits just keep coming for the Giants offensive line.

The team announced on Thursday morning that guard Shane Lemieux has been placed on IR after suffering a torn biceps during Wednesday's practice.

A fifth-round pick of the Giants in 2020, Lemieux has appeared in four games this season, making the start in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers. While he's primarily played on special teams this season, he has played 91 total offensive snaps.

To fill Lemieux's spot on the active roster, the Giants signed offensive lineman Sean Harlow off of Dallas' practice squad.

Oct. 18, 12:23 p.m.

Daniel Jones (neck) has been cleared to throw and will return to practice on a limited basis, head coach Brian Daboll told reporters on Wednesday.

However, Jones has not been cleared for contact, meaning he will not take part in any team reps.

Daboll also said that Jones' season is "not over," and he reiterated that Jones will be the team's starting quarterback when he's healthy enough to play.

Oct. 17, 11:36 a.m.

Daniel Jones, who missed the Giants' Week 6 loss to the Bills due to a neck injury, said on Tuesday that he's still dealing with some of the symptoms.

However, Jones is hoping to return for Week 7's matchup against the Commanders at MetLife Stadium, saying on the Up & Adams Show that he is trying to "prove to the doctors and trainers" that he's ready.

Jones, who didn't practice last week, had said the main issue was being able to take contact during the game.

Tyrod Taylor started in Jones' place against the Bills and will start against the Commanders if Jones can't go.

The Giants are off on Tuesday, and will be back practicing on Wednesday.

Oct. 15, 9:30 p.m.

The Giants’ beaten and battered offensive line took another hit in the first quarter of Sunday night’s game in Buffalo.

Left tackle Joshua Ezeudu, who is playing while Andrew Thomas is out with a hamstring injury, sustained a toe injury and was declared out for the remainder of the game against the Bills.

Justin Pugh, who was recently signed to the practice squad and was starting at left guard on the night, replaced Ezeudu at left tackle. Mark Glowinski entered at left guard.

Oct. 15, 7:04 p.m.

After missing the last three games, running back Saquon Barkley is active and will play for the Giants at the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night.

In addition to being without quarterback Daniel Jones (neck), offensive tackles Andrew Thomas (hamstring) and Matt Peart (shoulder), center John Michael Schmitz (shoulder), who were ruled all out on Friday, Big Blue has listed safeties Bobby McCain and Gervarrius Owens as inactive and defensive lineman D.J. Davidson (knee).

Tight end Darren Waller (hamstring), offensive tackle Evan Neal (ankle), guard Shane Lemieux (groin) and linebacker Micah McFadden (ankle) are all active despite being listed as questionable.
