Giants news, 10/22: Patrick Omameh stays behind as Giants travel to Atlanta

Guard ruled out because of knee issue Guard Patrick Omameh, already benched by the New York Giants in favor of Spencer Pulley, did not travel to Georgia with the team over the weekend and has been ruled out of Monday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons. Omameh was added to the team’s injury report on Saturday with a knee injury. The only reserve offensive linemen the Giants will have Monday are tackle Brian Mihalik and center/guard Evan Brown. Neither has played a snap for the Giants, and Brown has yet to be active for an NFL game. Wide receiver/kick returner Jawill Davis (concussion) is...

Giants vs. Falcons: How the game will be won or lost

Can the Falcons hold up in another likely shootout against a dysfunctional yet still dangerous Giants team? The Atlanta Falcons are back in the spotlight. After entering their first primetime game in Philadelphia with Super Bowl aspirations, expectations have drastically changed for Dan Quinn’s squad. A plethora of devastating injuries leaves them fighting for relevancy in the NFC. They are in the midst of a crucial two-game stretch before going into a much-needed bye. Beating Tampa Bay was the first step in attempting to salvage their season. To beat a dysfunctional Giants team would be...

Giants roster moves: Quadree Henderson added, TE Garrett Dickerson waived

In need of returner, Giants add former Pitt star The concussion that we previously knew would keep wide receiver/kick returner Jawill Davis out of Monday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons has forced the New York Giants into a roster move. Needing a return man, the Giants are waiving rookie tight end Garrett Dickerson and signing Quadree Henderson from their practice squad. Henderson, a rookie undrafted free agent, was a dangerous return man collegiately for Pitt. Henderson averaged 26.6 yards with four TDs on 73 kickoff returns and 13.4 yards with three touchdowns on 37 punt returns in...

Falcons’ Calvin Ridley, Grady Jarrett, and Mohamed Sanu all expected to play vs. Giants on ‘Monday Night Football’

Finally, some injury news that isn’t terrible. It feels nice to be able to share some pleasant news with you on the Falcons injury front. Calvin Ridley, Mohamed Sanu, and Grady Jarrett all were able to practice in some capacity on Saturday in the team’s final session before Monday’s game. The expectation is that all will be able to play on Monday night, per ESPN’s Vaughn McClure.

Sanu couldn’t hit the...

Week 7 of Redskins football! The Redskins are coming off a needed win over the Carolina Panthers after a brutal loss on Monday Night Football to the New Orleans Saints. Washington has a loose grip on 1st place in the division.

The Redskins are hoping to get Shawn Lauvao back this week. He has missed the last 3 games with a calf injury. Tony Bergstrom started at center and Chase Roullier moved to LG. Roullier will move back to center if...

Giants injury report: Jawill Davis misses practice with concussion

Giants could be looking for yet another return man Monday night The New York Giants have already gone through Kaelin Clay, Stacy Coley, Cody Latimer, Odell Beckham Jr. and Jawill Davis as kick returners this season. Monday night, the Giants might have to dig even deeper as Davis popped up on the Friday injury report with a concussion that kept him out of practice. “Jawill had a persistent headache, so the medical staff determined he should be placed in the concussion protocol,” head coach Pat Shurmur said on Friday. Davis, a rookie undrafted free agent, has averaged 24.4 yards on seven...

Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Friday, Oct. 19

The Falcons don’t play until Monday night, so spend your weekend feverishly going over these links. The Atlanta Falcons are 2-4 and heading into their first and only Monday night game of the season against the New York Giants. Another must-win tilt (they all are, at this point), and the Falcons may be short-handed on offense with both Calvin Ridley and Mohamed Sanu nursing injuries. Matt Ryan will have to put the team on his back with a limited supporting cast, but with the Giants allowing 27 points per game, the scoring opportunities will certainly be there. You’ve got one extra day...

Falcons vs. Giants: What you need to know to watch MNF in Week 7

It’ll be a chance for the 2-4 Falcons to enter the bye on a strong note, while the 1-5 Giants just don’t want to lose again. On paper, the Falcons and Giants aren’t even close. If this were a fully healthy Falcons team, I’d be making the rare decision to project a massive win from Atlanta, because the talent gap between the two squads is so vast. Unfortunately, injuries have closed that gap a lot. I still feel good about this one, primarily because the Giants passing attack, offensive line, and most of the defense is in disarray. New York can just lean hard on Saquon Barkley and...

It looks like the Giants will get their tight ends back vs. Falcons The New York Giants got some good news on Thursday as they held their first full practice in preparation for Monday night’s game against the Atlanta Falcons. Tight ends Evan Engram and Rhett Ellison were both full practice participants. Engram has been out since Week 3 with a sprained MCL.

Eagles injured reserve list now up to eight players

Philadelphia’s had to deal with a number of serious injuries this season. The Philadelphia Eagles’ injured reserve list has a new addition. Destiny Vaeao is the latest player to end up on IR. The Eagles waived/injured Vaeao on Tuesday in order to make room for cornerback Dexter McDougle on the 53-man roster. With Vaeao going unclaimed on waivers, he reverted to Philadelphia’s injured reserve list. Vaeao reportedly suffered a quadriceps injury during the Eagles’ win over the Giants on Thursday Night Football. Despite playing the sixth most snaps (40.8%) of any Eagles defensive...

If you could take one New York Giant and add him to the Falcons, who are you taking?

Hint: It’s not Eli Manning. Every week, we ask you who you’d add to the Falcons roster from the upcoming opponent. Some weeks it’s absurdly difficult to pick one, and other weeks there’s really only a handful of options who would actually make the team better. This week is the latter. That’s because this week’s opponent is the New York Giants, a team that has gotten to this low point not by injuries or mistakes in execution, but foundational mistakes in team-building. As Falcons fans we’re no strangers to that failure, but it’s still sort of astonishing to see the Giants...

Eagles offensive line coach doesn’t expect Jason Peters to miss time

Maybe JP won’t be out this week after all? The Philadelphia Eagles made their assistant coaches available to media on Monday and one takeaway from that session is that offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland doesn’t expect starting left tackle Jason Peters to miss any time (per Jimmy Kempski). Peters, as we know, suffered a biceps injury during the Eagles’ win over the New York Giants on Thursday night. The 36-year-old blocker had already been playing through a quadriceps injury that would “flare up” on him, as Doug Pederson described it. Yesterday morning, NFL insider Ian Rapoport...

Matt Bryant, Devonta Freeman ruled out for Monday Night Football against the Giants

That’s not a good sign this early, but thankfully the Falcons have a bye coming next. When Matt Bryant pulled up lame kicking what almost certainly was a game-sealing field goal, given what the Buccaneers managed to do shortly thereafter, many of us feared the worst. You’re talking about a 43-year-old kicker, after all, and as good as Bryant is nobody beats Father Time forever. Thankfully, it doesn’t sound like this is the kind of injury that will knock Bryant out for the rest of the year, which is all we could ask for. He is going to miss at least one week, however, and Devonta...
