Rookie offensive lineman was recently placed on IR

Graphic by Kyle Howard

New York Giants coach Brian Daboll said Wednesday that the neck injury that has landed rookie offensive lineman Joshua Ezeudu on injured is “more long-term than short-term” but is not believed to be career-threatening.

A third-round pick by the Giants, Ezeudu last played in Week 11. He finished the season appearing in 10 games with two starts.

Ezeudu is part of a rookie class with several players on season-ending IR. Second-round pick Wan’Dale Robinson, fifth-round pick Marcus McKethan, fifth-round pick D.J. Davidson and sixth-round pick Darrian Beavers are all on injured reserve.

Status quo on the injury report

The Giants’ injury report on Wednesday is identical to the one they issued Tuesday. Offensive lineman Shane Lemieux (toe) and cornerback Adoree’ Jackson (knee) did not practice. Kayvon Thibodeaux, Evan Neal, Nick Vannett and Leonard Williams were limited.
