Since Odell Beckham Jr.'s departure, the New York Giants have yet to assemble a WR corps comparable to any elite NFL offense. Whether it was completely missing with Kenny Golladay and Kadrius Toney or seeing players like Darius Slayton lead the team in yards the last two seasons, the group hasn't lived up to standards.

Heading into 2024, the Giants have clarified that they are locked in on creating an environment that allows Daniel Jones to shine. While selecting Malik Nabers at No. 6 overall in the draft was a great start, having solid complementary pieces is just as important as having a star.

With all that said, the Giants will need new players to step up to the plate and play a significant role in cultivating a threatening offense. Unfortunately for Bryce Ford-Wheaton, the second-year undrafted free agent, injuries seem to be continuing to tamper with his progress. 

After showing flashes in the 2023 pre-season, Ford-Wheaton suffered a torn ACL. During a minicamp practice, Ford-Wheaton sustained a shoulder sprain. We'd love to see Ford-Wheaton get his proper chance to shine on the field. Luckily, the Giants will be off until July 24, giving Ford-Wheaton some time to heal up, but this is yet another injury for him to worry about:

NY Giants WR Bryce Ford-Wheaton can't seem to stay healthy

With Slayton also getting banged up in practice and news of Darren Waller's retirement, the Giants again seem to be lacking playmakers. While the idea of Nabers exploding for a monster rookie year is fun and plausible, the Giants are heading down a one-dimensional path in the passing game.

With some time off, the biggest priority for the Giants WRs room is to get healthy. Hopefully, with new faces like Allen Robinson and Isaiah McKenzie in the mix, Jones will have a more diverse set of options when he drops back into the pocket.

Heading into training camp, there is still plenty to be excited about regarding the NYG offense. If things go right, let's hope the G-Men can continue taking things one step at a time and lay the bricks for a successful 2024 season. With that said, let's also hope Ford-Wheaton can get healthy and stay that way.
