When it rains, it certainly does pour.
Such is the case with the New York Giants injury situation ahead of their Week 7 home game against the Carolina Panthers Sunday.
The Giants, who will be without running back Saquon Barkley and receivers Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney, and who will likely be missing reserve defensive lineman Danny Shelton, added inside linebacker Tae Crowder to their injury report Saturday with a thigh issue.
Crowder has been calling the defense for the Giants ever since Blake Martinez went down with a torn ACL. While the feeling is that Crowder will be able to give it a go Sunday, the Giants elevated linebacker Benardrick McKinney from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.

The Giants just can't get healthy.
The 28-year-old McKinney was a 2015 second-round pick by the Texans. He appeared in 80 games with 77 starts for Houston and was a 2018 Pro Bowler. McKinney, who was previously with the Dolphins after being traded earlier this year, comes with a reputation of being a run-stopper.
