October 31, 2014 New York Giants Injury Report: RB Rashad Jennings (knee) and DT Cullen Jenkins (calf) did not practice on Friday. Head Coach Tom Coughlin has already ruled Jennings out of the game against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night.

CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back/hamstring) and P Steve Weatherford (left ankle) were limited in practice.

“We are working him,” said Defensive Coordinator Perry Fewell. “It depends on how he feels. Sometimes he is really good, when I say good he has been good back to back practices so we will see tomorrow if he tightens up, stiffens up, what have you. That is how we kind of approach it – it is a day-to-day kind of assessment with him.”

October 30, 2014 New York Giants Injury Report: RB Rashad Jennings (knee) and DT Cullen Jenkins (calf) did not practice on Thursday. Head Coach Tom Coughlin has already ruled Jennings out of the game against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night.

CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back/hamstring) and P Steve Weatherford (left ankle) were limited in practice.

OG Geoff Schwartz (toe) is still on short-term Injured Reserve. “We’ll see throughout the whole process here with the amount of time that he has to get ready,” said Coughlin. “He’s coming off of a significant injury so we’ll see how he practices and then we’ll go from there…He hasn’t practiced yet. He’s going out there, he’s going to go through individual, and then we’ll spoon feed him in there, no doubt on the scout side of the ball first.”

Mike Harris, Jacksonville Jaguars (August 14, 2014)

Giants Sign CB Mike Harris, Place LB Jon Beason on IR: The New York Giants signed cornerback Mike Harris off of the Practice Squad of the Detroit Lions.

Harris was originally drafted in the 6th round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. In two seasons with Jacksonville, Harris played in 31 games with eight starts. Harris was waived by the Jaguars in August 2014 before signing with the Lions in October. Harris has decent size and athleticism. He has experience playing in the slot. Harris is a good tackler and special teams player.

Because of these moves, we have updated the Transactions, Roster, and Depth Chart sections of the website.

Linebacker Practice Squad Moves: The Giants have terminated the Practice Squad contract of linebacker Carlos Fields. To fill that vacancy, the Giants re-signed linebacker Justin Anderson to the Practice Squad. Anderson was originally signed by the Giants as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2014 NFL Draft. The Giants cut him on August 26.

Article on RB Andre Williams: Patience, pause, then pop: Giants rookie adjusts running style by Tom Rock of Newsday

Notes: This season, the Giants are 3-0 when they score first, 0-4 when they don’t.

Giants opponents gained at least 400 yards four times in the first seven games. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that last happened in 1948.

The Giants have not scored an opening-possession touchdown in 18 consecutive games, the NFL’s longest streak.

Larry Donnell and Daniel Fells each have four touchdown receptions this season, the first time the Giants have had two tight ends with at least that many since 1994, when Howard Cross and Aaron Pierce each finished the season with four.
