Wide receiver Golden Tate (concussion), tight end Evan Engram (foot), tight end Rhett Ellison (concussion), safety Jabrill Peppers (back), and long snapper Zak DeOssie (knee/wrist) did not practice on Friday. All five players have been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

“I think in the Jets game (DeOssie) got banged up a little bit,” said Head Coach Pat Shurmur. “He was just fighting through it being a tough guy. He was just unable to go Thursday and Friday.”

Media reports indicate DeOssie will be placed on Injured Reserve before Sunday’s game and that the Giants will sign long snapper Colin Holba from the team’s Practice Squad to replace him.

NOVEMBER 7, 2019 NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT…
Wide receiver Sterling Shepard (concussion protocol), tight end Evan Engram (foot), center Jon Halapio (hamstring), and right tackle Mike Remmers (back) did not practice on Thursday.

“I think (Halapio is) a ways away,” said Head Coach Pat Shurmur. “But the good news for us is, in my mind, I feel like we have two starting centers on our team. So, if he’s unable to go, then Spencer (Pulley)will go. (Remmers has) got some soreness from the game. So, in the event he can’t go, we’ve got Nick Gates who we feel like will do a good job.”

“There probably won’t be any (practice) activity this week (for Shepard), and then we’ll just move forward from there,” Shurmur said.

When asked if the Giants are considering putting Shepard on Injured Reserve, Shurmur responded, “We’re not talking about any of that at this point. Let’s just try to get him well and get him back on the field. Again, he’s in the protocol, so it’s very defined the steps he’s got to take to get on the field, and he’ll go through those steps.”

GIANTS SIGN SEAN CHANDLER TO PRACTICE SQUAD…
The Giants have signed safety Sean Chandler, who was waived on Tuesday, to the Practice Squad. The Giants originally signed Chandler as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2018 NFL Draft. Chandler made the team and played in all 16 games with no starts. He finished 2018 with 18 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 pass defense. This year, Chandler played in all nine games with no starts, accruing just five tackles.

Running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) and linebacker Alec Ogletree (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday.

“We’ll have to see (if Barkley plays this weekend),” said Head Coach Pat Shurmur. “I think there are certain things we need to see a player do before we deem him ready to play. Deciding whether a player is out or not, those are Friday things. Today is Thursday… I would (consider it a possibility that he plays). I think we check constantly with our doctors, and we make sure that he’s on the right track to come back. So, we’ll just see. Really, if you think about this globally, people outside the building put time frames on things. Within the building, we know that all people are different and that’s why you hear us say, typically, day to day, or week to week. I think that’s where we’re at with all the injuries because as different as people are, they respond differently to injuries. Sometimes the injuries are more or less severe but still get categorized as this. That’s where I think we have to be careful when people are trying to predict when a player comes back.”

Running back Wayne Gallman (neck), linebacker Lorenzo Carter (neck), and linebacker Tae Davis (concussion) were limited in practice.

Right guard Kevin Zeitler (shoulder) and left tackle Nate Solder (neck) fully practiced.

“Saquon got his second opinion,” said Head Coach Pat Shurmur, who also said Barkley would not be placed on Injured Reserve. “He’s obviously consulted with Dr. O’Malley and Dr. Anderson. I guess it’s been determined we’ll just rehab him and get him ready to go and we’ll see how that plays out. Obviously, as coaches, we have a short time horizon, so he won’t be available this week, but we’ll just see when he is. I don’t want to put any time frame on how long it will take him to come back… you never know how long some of these things take.”

Though not a standout, Martin has his most productive season as a pro, playing in a 16 games with seven starts, and finishing with 48 tackles (twice as much as his previous high), 1.5 sacks, and 2 pass defenses. The 6’6”, 272-pound Martin was originally drafted in the 3rd round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Cardinals as a defensive end. The Cardinals moved him to linebacker after his rookie season. Martin injured his knee in the season opener against Dallas.

The 6’0”, 190-pound Jones was originally drafted in the 6th-round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions. In four seasons with the Lions, Jones played in 42 regular-season games with nine starts, catching 64 passes for 814 yards and four touchdowns. The Giants signed Jones in July 2019 and cut him at the end of August.
