Giants’ injury report: New York is looking healthy heading into its season opener

No major injury concerns for the Giants heading into Week 1

NFL: New York Giants at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

With just four days until the New York Giants open the 2020 season against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night at MetLife Stadium, the injury report is (fingers crossed) looking very thin.

Only linebacker Markus Golden (illness) was listed as “Did Not Participate” in Thursday’s practice.

Listed as limited were defensive back Adrian Colbert (illness), linebacker Tae Crowder (hamstring), wide receiver Golden Tate (hamstring) and tight end Levine Toilolo (hamstring).

The notable name on the list is Tate. The veteran wide receiver suffered a hamstring injury in late August in a situation that Joe Judge called “day-to-day.” At the time, this designation from the head coach led to some worry that Tate would not be ready for the start of the season.

But Tate returned to practice on Wednesday and continued to practice again on Thursday. His participation in practice over the past two days, albeit limited, bodes well for his availability on Monday night.

A healthy Tate would give Daniel Jones the stacked offense he has been lacking since joining the team as he should have many potential weapons at his disposal for the team’s season opener.

Other than Tate, there were no notable injuries. Golden was sidelined with an illness but there appears to be no significant bumps or bruises on this Giants team.

For the Steelers, guad David DeCastro (knee) and wide receiver Diontae Johnson (foot) did not participate.
