NY Giants WR injuries could haunt Daniel Jones vs. the Packers
The NY Giants can’t catch a break with injuries, as things continue to get worse for Brian Daboll. It’s been announced that Kadarius Toney is now dealing with an issue with his other hamstring, meaning he’ll be out once again this weekend.
In addition to this, Kenny Golladay will also be missing this week’s game due to a new knee injury he sustained in the Giants latest game against the Bears. The Giants have already been shorthanded at the receiver position this season with Sterling Shepard tearing his ACL and Wan’Dale Robinson having only played a total of nine snaps thus far.
With all four players not playing this week, the NY Giants could be in some serious trouble and this is terrible news for Daniel Jones.
NY Giants looking very thing at wide receiver
Entering this week, the Giants only have four active wide receivers in the form of Richie James, David Sills, Darius Slayton, and practice squad member Marcus Johnson. While the team has won games without their top receivers this campaign, the Packers passing defense is strong and will cause the offense some trouble.
The Giants have had issues at receiver all throughout the season thus far, with the main core not playing a single full game together yet. Obviously the run game has been the main reason for the Giants early success. However, the level of injuries this team has faced thus far is unbelievable.
Outside of the injuries to the receiving core, the NY Giants will also be without Azeez Ojulari and Cor’Dale Flott on the defense. This could cause some problems, as the pass-rush and secondary of the NY Giants has been arguably the two biggest issues of the team.
It will be interesting to see how the NY Giants adjust to the fact that they have arguably zero starting caliber receivers on the depth chart this week. We will likely see more play-action/rollout plays like what we saw against the Bears, but that could be an issue with Jones dealing with his bum ankle.
