New York Giants headlines for Friday, 11/6.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

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

Daniel Fells has another procedure on right foot

Big Blue tight end Daniel Fells underwent an eighth surgery on his right foot Thursday, which his agent said would be his second to last procedure on Oct. 19 following his seventh surgery. Fells returned home on Oct. 20, when the MRSA infection he contracted from a cortisone shot was finally believed to be controlled by doctors and medical staff. After initial thoughts that his right foot would need to be amputated, this is a remarkable recovery process for the 32-year-old. He took to Instagram to show off positive vibes, writing "This will not defeat me."
