Kenny Golladay injury update: Wide receiver said to have “slight hamstring pull”

Golladay will obviously miss some time, but it sounds like the injury could have been worse

When wide receiver Kenny Golladay left the practice field on Tuesday and grabbed at his left hamstring, that looked like potentially awful news for the New York Giants.

The high-priced free agent signee is the centerpiece of what the Giants hope will be a far better offense in 2021, and a significant injury would put a crimp in those plans.

The Giants, though, may have avoided the worst-case scenario.

NFL insider Ian Rapoport is reporting today that Golladay has a slight hamstring pull. Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports that it is “not considered a significant injury,” but that Golladay will have more tests on Wednesday.

Golladay missed time in both 2017 and 2020 with hamstring injuries.

Golladay is the second Giants offensive starter to go down with an injury in camp, but appear to have avoided a long-term injury. Offensive lineman Shane Lemieux suffered a knee injury last week and is day-to-day.
