Cornerback Adoree’ Jackson (knee) and offensive lineman Shane Lemieux (toe) will not play for the New York Giants on Saturday against the Minnesota Vikings. Neither has played in several weeks, with Jackson out since being injured Week 11 and Lemieux having played in only one game, also Week 11 vs. the Detroit Lions.
Everyone else on the 53-man roster will be available for a game that could help the Giants clinch their first playoff berth since 2016. Here is how the Giants can clinch:
- NYG win + WAS loss + DET loss OR
- NYG win + WAS loss + SEA loss OR
- NYG win + DET loss + SEA loss
As far as injuries, offensive lineman Evan Neal (shoulder), edge defender Kayvon Thibodeaux (elbow), tight end Nick Vannett (shoulder) and defensive lineman Leonard Williams (neck) were all limited practice participants on Thursday but don’t carry a game designation — meaning they are expected to play. Wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins is on Thursday’s injury report with a calf issue, but was a full participant in practice.
