1. TE Darren Waller

Darren Waller is expected to play in this game, but it's clear that his groin has been giving him issues this week. When Waller first showed up on the injury report, it felt like yet another gut punch for this team. In the 31-16 loss to the Dolphins last Sunday over in Miami, Waller posted his best game for the Giants thus far this season.

On the day, the big-bodied pass-catcher hauled in eight receptions for 86 yards. Waller quietly had a strong showing against the AFC East side, though fans would have loved it if he would have been able to reel in a contested touchdown pass from Jones - the ball somehow hit the turf. The Giants need Waller to be sharp for this team to have a shot.

All of these injuries the Giants are dealing with are alarming, but no one wanted to see Waller going through issues five weeks into the campaign. He's missed 17 games over the past two years due to various injuries. If this game gets out of hand early on, then Waller should be kept on the sideline in the second half, if he's able to play that is.
