Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines to follow for Friday morning.

Karlos Williams a challenge for Giants' defense

LeSean McCoy won't play Sunday for the Buffalo Bills, but the Giants know that 240-pound rookie running back Karlos Williams will present them with a different challenge. Williams is averaging 7.8 yards per carry thru the first three games.

"For a fifth-rounder, to be running the way he has so far this season, I think they got a steal in the draft with him," Jenkins said. "We know what McCoy brings to the table. He’s one of the most dangerous backs in the league. But then, to bring him in when McCoy’s out, they have a pretty good 1-2 punch there."

Jenkins was asked for a comparison.

"Maybe … Frank Gore-type back maybe," Jenkins said. "I’m talking about the power he runs with.

"I can’t really think of too many big 240-pound running backs in the league right now. Even being 240 though, he doesn’t run any slower than a fast back. I think he’s really quick."
