Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here is your Giants Morning Report for this Friday.

Fewell: 'We'll Crawl Out' From Bottom Of Pile

The Giants' defense is now ranked last in the NFL in terms of yardage given up. In case you missed it, 'Rap' wrote last night about defensive coordinator Perry Fewell saying the defense would "crawl out" from that hole. Fewell also promised a victory on Sunday.

We'll see. Fewell is going to need some victories, and some quality defensive performances to save his job. Paul Schwartz of the New York Post speculated that Fewell seems to be the "most vulnerable" member of Tom Coughlin's coaching staff right now.

Williams Played Three Quarters With Concussion

'Rap' also mentioned this in his report, but it bears highlighting. Jacquian Williams apparently suffered the concussion that has prevented him from practicing this week early in the second quarter of last Sunday's game vs. the Seattle Seahawks. He played the rest of the game without reporting any difficulty, or anyone from the Giants or the NFL noticing that anything was wrong.

Williams apparently reported his symptoms to the Giants on Monday.

"When we looked at the film, I think it was when Antrel Rolle recovered the fumble at about the 49-yard line. That's when we assume that he got hit," Fewell said. "There was nothing different talking to him or communicating with him on the sideline, so no, we couldn't tell anything during the ball game."

Giants To Hold Annual Food Drive

The Giants will hold their 18th annual food drive at MetLife Stadium Sunday when they host the 49ers. Fans are encouraged to bring canned or non-perishable foods and deposit them at any of the Stop & Shop bins at each stadium entrance. You can also donate to the team's Virtual Food Drive by visiting www.cfbnj.org/giants.

All food collected during the drive will be donated to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey (a member of Feeding America) for distribution to local partner charities in the area.
