3. There are no major injuries facing the G-Men

After the Cowboys game, the Giants had some players banged up. It’s football and injuries are always going to happen.

Andrew Thomas is dealing with a hamstring issue, but it isn’t one where he’ll be out several weeks. Maybe he misses one of the two games in a week, but that’s better than if he were missing for a month. Darren Waller was also dealing with a hamstring issue as well, but he still played through his during the game against the Cowboys and made a few catches. Waller said this is more of a nerve thing, but if it's controllable, then Waller should be okay.

Graham Gano was dealing with an ankle issue following the blocked field goal that the Cowboys scored a touchdown on. He was limited during practice, but not to the point where the Giants had to go out and get another kicker onto the roster. Despite the rough game, losing Gano would have been a massive blow, but Gano is still around.

Nobody has suffered a crucial injury to this point, and that’s a good thing for the Giants. Health has always been a thing and in the past, several players haven’t made it through the season without being lost for the year. Last year, Sterling Shepard was lost by Week 3 and Wan’Dale Robinson didn’t get to make it to Thanksgiving. But that was last year. So far, players are for the most part healthy.
