New York Giants Defense (October 19, 2014)

October 20, 2014 New York Giants Injury Report: The injury news does not sound good regarding LB Jon Beason, who aggravated his toe injury again in the game against the Dallas Cowboys. Beason left the game after playing just 17 snaps. X-rays were negative but he is scheduled to visit foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, NC again.

CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back/hamstring) only played 15 snaps. “It is going to be a continuous kind of a thing here with (him),” Head Coach Tom Coughlin said. “”Will the rest help him? Sure it will.”

DT Cullen Jenkins left the game early with a calf strain. An MRI showed that the injury is not more serious, but Jenkins, who was still in a walking boot and crutches on Monday, said he will be out at least two weeks.

The Giants are still unsure if RB Rashad Jennings (knee) and OG Geoff Schwartz (toe) will be able to return after the bye in two weeks against the Indianapolis Colts.

“You are talking about a running back coming back from an MCL,” Coughlin said. “This is not an easy thing for Rashad either. He is well aware of that. It is his makeup that we are counting on. Again he is doing everything in his power, I can guarantee you that.”

“I wanted to play last game,” said Jennings. “I can’t do what my body won’t allow me to do. So obviously, I’m going to try again to get back for Monday and just take it day by day. We’ll see how I wake up.”

“Schwartz has a long way to go,” Coughlin said. “He has been standing on the sidelines for a long time now. We are going to have to get him on the practice field extensively before that happens.”

“I have to be able to practice to be able to play,” Schwartz said. “The plan is to be back on Wednesday. That’s kind of the plan right now, to test it out next week, or in two weeks. It does feel better. I can do a good amount of things without pads on and without people hitting me. Part of the issue is going to be how it reacts when I’m pushing and when I’m anchoring and when I’m playing 50 plays a game. I’m not going to know until I get out there on Wednesday.”

Chandler Fenner (48), Kansas City Chiefs (August 30, 2012)

Chandler Fenner (48) – © USA TODAY Sports Images

Giants Sign CB Chandler Fenner from Practice Squad; Waive LB Dan Fox: The New York Giants signed cornerback Chandler Fenner off of the team’s Practice Squad on Saturday. To make room for Fenner, the Giants waived linebacker Dan Fox.

Fenner was signed to the Practice Squad on August 31, 2014. Fenner was originally signed by the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2012 NFL Draft. He did not make the team but the Seattle Seahawks signed him to their Practice Squad in December 2012. He missed all of 2013 with a knee injury that landed him on Seattle’s Injured Reserve. The Giants signed Fenner on August 1, 2014. He has a nice combination of size and athleticism and he plays a physical game.

Fox is a rookie free agent who was also signed to the Practice Squad on August 31. He was signed to the 53-man roster in mid-September when linebackers Jon Beason (foot/ankle) and Devon Kennard (hamstring) got hurt. If he clears waivers, the Giants will likely re-sign him to the Practice Squad.

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

“We had a limited number of snaps that (Beckham) went through and he did some really nice things today,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “We’ll just have to see how it turns out later this afternoon and tomorrow.”

“(Beckham has) been in every meeting,” said Coughlin. “I would expect him to know everything. I wouldn’t shy away from (limiting him in the game plan). He’s demonstrated an ability to handle whatever’s thrown at him. He’s done that throughout, so I would expect that. Now, under fire with adjustments and signals and things of that nature, we’ve got to see where we are with regard to that, too.”

September 29, 2014 New York Giants Injury Report: LB Devon Kennard (hamstring) did not practice on Monday.

“Not bad. He’s getting better. Hopefully it’ll be soon,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin when asked about Kennard’s progress.

LB Jon Beason (foot/ankle), WR Odell Beckham (hamstring), OT Charles Brown (shoulder), OT James Brewer (back), and P Steve Weatherford (ankle) practiced.

Coughlin was asked what Bechkam has to demonstrate in order to play. “There are a lot of things,” replied Coughlin. “He has to practice, he has to practice consecutive days, he has to be able to show us that he’s not only strong enough but can endure day after day, so there’s some room here to make some progress and impress everybody. ”

“(Beason) seemed to be okay, did a little bit,” said Coughlin.

Jayron Hosley Back with Giants: CB Jayron Hosley, who was suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league’s policy on illegal drugs, is back practicing with the team. The Giants have received a one-game roster exemption for Hosley. The team has until 4:00PM next Monday to place him on the 53-man roster or waive him. If they decide to keep Hosley, the Giants will have to make a roster move to make room for him.
