The NY Giants see some key players hit the injury report ahead of their divisional rivalry game against Washington Sunday.
With just a few more days to get ready for Sunday’s game against NFC East rival Washington Football Team, some key members of the NY Giants popped up on the injury report after Thursday’s practice.
Even with just two wins, the Washington Football Team should not be taken lightly. They have plenty of weapons on the offensive side of the ball, like Terry McLaurin, who had seven catches for 74 yards on 12 targets in week six against the Giants.
That’s why it’s worrying to see Blake Martinez on the injury report with a hamstring issue. Martinez had a standout game against Washington in Week 6, with 14 tackles and a QB hit. Martinez is currently tied with Jaylon Smith of the Dallas Cowboys for most tackles in the NFL.
On the offensive side, running back Devonta Freeman is still nursing his ankle injury and was a limited practice participant. Freeman had 18 carries for 61 yards against Washington the first time around, but has not played since getting the injury in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Freeman has 172 yards rushing and a touchdown along with 58 receiving yards across five games for the Giants.
The full Giants injury report per Dan Salomone is listed here:
Did Not Participate: DB Ryan Lewis (hamstring)
Limited: LB Devante Downs (shoulder), RB Devonta Freeman (ankle), LB Blake Martinez (hamstring), DB Logan Ryan (hip), WR Sterling Shepard (shoulder/toe)
Full: WR Golden Tate (not injury related)
