Injury woes will continue to leave Giants without full complement of play-makers

The first game of the post-Jason Garrett era for the New York Giants’ offense looks like it will begin like many others have this season — with several top players sidelined.

Wide receiver Kadarius Toney (quad) and tight end Kyle Rudolph (ankle) are listed as “Doubtful,” meaning they probably will not play. Toney leads the Giants with 35 receptions. This would be his second missed game of the season.

With Kaden Smith (knee) missing a second straight game coming off the bye and trending toward landing on injured reserve, the Giants would be down to Evan Engram and Chris Myarick at tight end if Rudolph can’t go.

Sterling Shepard (quad) will miss his sixth game of the season. Fullback/special teamer Cullen Gillaspia will miss a second straight game with a calf injury.

Safety Logan Ryan remains on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Saquon Barkley (ankle) and John ross (quad) are listed as questionable.

Wide receiver Kadarius Toney, who left late in Monday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a quad contusion, did not practice Wednesday for the New York Giants. The 3-7 Giants host the 5-6 Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and Toney’s name was the only significant addition to the Giants’ injury report.

Despite an inconsistent rookie season, Toney leads the Giants in receptions (35), targets (48) and yards receiving (324).

Linebacker Lorenzo Carter, who has missed the last three games with an ankle injury, participated on a limited basis.

The Giants held a walk-through on Wednesday, so participation in the list below is considered a projection.
