Atlanta Falcons InjuriesUp to the minute news on Atlanta Falcons Injuries
The 2-2 New York Giants will try to move their record above .500 for the first time since the 2012 season when they take on the 2-2 Atlanta Falcons at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Here are three things we'll be watching especially closely: 1. Odell Beckham Jr.: Will the Giants' first-round pick -- the only 2014 first-round pick who has yet to play in an NFL game -- finally see the field? Out since mid-July with a hamstring injury, Beckham practiced on a limited basis all week and could make his NFL debut in this game.
Atlanta's offensive line will have three new starters on Sunday.
The Giants have won two games in a row and they are poised to make it three straight against an overrated Atlanta team.
It is not every day a team puts two starters on season-ending injured reserve, but that’s what happened to the Falcons this week when they lost center Joe Hawley (knee)...
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants linebacker Jon Beason, who has missed the past two games with a foot injury, is feeling better and expects to play Sunday against the Falcons. "Yeah, I think so," Beason said Thursday. "It feels pretty good. We're just working me back in slowly, trying to be smart about it and not make anything worse. But it's feeling pretty good." In the second game of the season, Beason aggravated the toe injury that cost him all of training camp.
MATT VENSEL: Teddy Bridgewater won’t top 200 yards The rookie quarterback will start tonight despite a sprained left ankle that figures to make him a game-time decision. The ankle injury, which should limit his mobility, is a concern, no doubt. But I expect Bridgewater to throw for significantly fewer yards than he did last week for a different reason. The Falcons defense, well, resembles a flaming dumpster right now, which is why Bridgewater was able to throw for 317 yards in the same game in which the Vikings also topped 200 rushing yards. The Packers pass defense is much better, and if...
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It looks like Eli Manning will have a new weapon to throw to this coming Sunday. Rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who missed the New York Giants’ first four games of the season because of a hamstring injury, practiced Wednesday, and it sounds like he’ll play against the Atlanta Falcons. “I feel good,” Beckham said, flashing a big smile. “Just looking forward to that opportunity, and getting a chance to finally run out on the field.
After several rough months battling injuries, Big Blue has few concerns at it begins prepping for Sunday's home game against the Atlanta Falcons. LB Jon Beason (foot/toe), LB Devon Kennard (hamstring) and P Steve Weatherford (ankle) all were set to practice Wednesday, according to coach Tom Coughlin.
Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is listed as questionable with an ankle injury for Thursday’s game against the Packers at Lambeau Field. He participated in practice for the first time on Wednesday, though he was limited. Bridgewater said on Tuesday he planned to run for the first time since spraining the ankle in Sunday’s 41-28 against the Falcons. Up until that point, the rookie has only done flexibility exercises during rehab. If Bridgewater is unable to play, quarterback Christian Ponder would start. He has received first team reps in Bridgewater’s absence this week at...
