After missing three straight games, Kenny Golladay is hoping to make his return from a knee injury on Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Golladay suffered the injury in Week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys, and was limited in Thursday's practice.

Head coach Joe Judge said the receiver has been "very open" about wanting to play this week, but the Giants want to see if his knee can handle game action.

"Well, I know he’s mentally ready and prepared for it, so we’ll just kind of see how he moves around today and see if we can open him up a little bit and see if we think we can get him on the field and keep him on the field," Judge told reporters on Friday. "I know he’s pushing to get out there. He’s been very open about wanting to play, so we’ll make sure that he’s in position to play if we put him out there."

Golladay told reporters he needs to see how his body responds in the next couple of days, as well.

The Giants can use any help they can get on offense - Sterling Shepard suffered a quad injury on Monday in Kansas City, and will likely miss his fourth game of the season - he missed Thursday's practice.

Saquon Barkley was taken off the COVID/Reserve list Friday morning, but is still hampered with an ankle injury, also suffered in Dallas - he did not practice on Friday.
