The New York Giants will face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday in an effort to improve their winning streak to four games. The Giants come into this match with an impressive 5-1 record. The Jaguars are battling a three-game losing streak 2-4 and are looking to cut that streak against the injury-ridden giants. The Giants just dropped five key players ahead of their Week 7 game against Jacksonville.
The giants eliminate five players in the seventh week
In today’s injury report, five key players have been left out by the New York Giants:
- Out at week 7:
- CB Cordell flute (calf)
- WR Kenny Golladay (knee)
- De Aziz Ogulari (hurry up)
- WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring)
- LB Oshane Ximines (Quadruple)
Injuries still ravage the Giants, particularly in the wide receiver. Kenny Goladay and Toni Kadarius are out again this week, raising doubts about when the players will return to the squad. For Tony, his return to the squad is still probably a few weeks away. The sophomore thinks he came back too early from his previous injury, causing a new hamstring injury. Tony said he is confident his body will cooperate going forward and that he will be back in the squad at some point this season (Jordan Raanan).
Three key players on the defensive side were left out of the ball. The passing rushing division of the Giants team remains sluggish as both Oshane Ximines and Azeez Ojulari will be held out of this Week 7 competition. Ximines have had a quiet but solid season so far. Ogolari hasn’t played much, but the Giants are keen to get such a talented player back on the field as soon as possible. In the meantime, the Giants will continue to rely on Kayvon Thibodeaux and Jihad Ward to beat their quarterbacks.
Rookie cornerback Cor’Dale Flott has struggled with his limited shots and will be out on Sunday with an injury. The Giants are skinny in high school with Flute and Aaron Robinson dropping out of the squad. Fortunately, veteran defensive back Fabian Moreau has risen to prominence.
In addition to those five players who will be left out on Sunday, starting position John Feliciano and safety Jason Pinnock are in question. Feliciano is expected to play, along with left-footed Andrew Thomas. Andrew Thomas was dealing with an elbow injury but received no injury classification today, which means he will start for the Giants on Sunday.
