Fells has been out since sustaining the injury after the team’s Week 1 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He was wearing a walking boot in the days after the injury, and had been listed as questionable the last few weeks.
Fells re-signed with the Giants on a one-year contract in the off-season. He had 16 receptions for 188 yards and four touchdowns last season, but is used mostly as a blocker.
Second-year player Jerome Cunningham is currently listed as Fells’s backup on the team’s depth chart. Cunningham has appeared in one game during his NFL career.
