Giants injury news: Dexter Lawrence, Evan Neal not practicing

Darren Waller eligible to return from IR, but not practicing yet

Defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence and offensive tackle Evan Neal did not practice on Tuesday for the New York Giants as they held their first full post-bye week practice.

Lawrence (hamstring) missed the Giants’ Week 12 victory over the New England Patriots. Head coach Brian Daboll remains hopeful that Lawrence, the Giants best defensive player, will be able to play against the Packers. He said he hoped Lawrence would practice “soon.”

Neal, the team’s starting right tackle, has not played since suffering an ankle injury Week 9 against the Las Vegas Raiders. If he does not play Monday, that would be his fourth straight missed game and sixth of the season. He missed two games earlier in the year with a different ankle injury.

Tight end Darren Waller (hamstring) is eligible to return, but remains on injured reserve. Daboll said Waller is “making progress.” While he wouldn’t rule Waller out for Monday, Daboll said he was leaning toward Waller not being available.
