Giants Week 14 Injury Report: Making Progress

Several Giants players are making some progress in their respective injuries.

The Giants' injured players are making slow progress, but progress nonetheless.

Cornerback Adoree' Jackson (quad) was the only player on the list unable to practice Thursday. But quarterback Mike Glennon (concussion) and receivers Kenny Golladay (rib) and Kadarius Toney (oblique) were all upgraded to limited participants in practice.

The Giants remain hopeful that Glennon will clear the league's concussion protocol in time for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Jake Fromm is expected to get his first NFL start if he doesn't.

The progress made by Golladay and Toney is promising, as the Giants will want to have s many of their playmakers available as possible, regardless of who's under center. 

Golladay, who was banged up in last week's game, and Toney, who has been in and out of the lineup with assorted injuries, provide the Giants with some deep field speed that they haven't been able to cash in on given their respective injury woes.

The rest of the Giants' Thursday injury report remained unchanged from the previous day. Running back Saquon Barkley (ankle), quarterback Daniel Jones (neck), and receiver Sterling Shepard (quad) were all limited. Jones is not expected to play Sunday as he has not yet been cleared for contact.

WEDNESDAY

Giants running back Saquon Barkley, who had finally come off the injury report last week, is back on it this week, listed as having an ankle issue. 

Barkley, quarterback Daniel Jones (neck), and receiver Sterling Shepard (quad) were all projected as being limited during the team's Wednesday walk-through practice.

Jones, who doctors have not yet cleared for contact, visited a Los Angeles specialist to evaluate his neck. Head coach Joe Judge continues to say that Jones's injury isn't considered season-ending at this point, but it looks more and more certain that he will miss his second straight game.

Backup quarterback Mike Glennon (concussion), receivers Kenny Golladay (rib) and Kadarius Toney (oblique), and cornerback Adoree' Jackson (quad) would not have practiced, according to the team's projections. Judge did express optimism that Glennon, who is in the league's protocol, might be cleared in time for Sunday's game.  

The plan for Glennon was to practice on a limited basis Thursday and then see if he's able to go full throttle Friday. Quarterbacks are non-contact players, so Glennon won't have to worry about being hit.
