New York Giants Receiver Kenny Golladay to Miss 2-3 Weeks with Hamstring Strain

The Giants are playing it safe with their top receiver after he strained his hamstring earlier this week.

Giants wide receiver Kenny Golladay is expected to miss between 2-3 weeks while recovering from a slight hamstring strain suffered earlier in the week.

As first reported by the Daily News and confirmed by a source, the prognosis is not catastrophic by any stretch of the imagination. Still, it's also not ideal news considering the emphasis placed on Golladay building chemistry with quarterback Daniel Jones in the offense.

Still, head coach Joe Judge, who has played it on the safe side with players returning from injury, is treating Golladay, who last year missed most of the season with a hip ailment, any differently. 

"These first 36 to 48 hours is the biggest, as far as what his timetable may be," Judge said Thursday. "We're hoping for the best. We're going let him go ahead and keep getting treatments and see where it progresses over the next week."

The Giants defensive lineman strongly hints the call wasn't the right one, but the video evidence on the Washington Football Team's game-winning field goal sequence suggests otherwise.

The expectation is Golladay will continue to work with the trainers, increasing his load each day to hopefully return later in the month.

"Every injury is different, whether we say it's a pull, or strain, or whatever it may be," Judge said. "Guys react differently to everything and their bodies are different. So, I'm going to make sure that he has every opportunity to rehab and get back on the field when his body is ready."

Golladay was signed to a four-year, $72 million contract to provide the offense with a tall X-receiver in the off-season.
