It’s Wednesday, and the New York Giants have detailed their practice participation for the day. Injuries have been at the core of an awful 2023 campaign, and Week 11 doesn’t seem like it’ll let up. Four significant players did not practice on Wednesday, along with a pair of important limited participants.
Let’s start with the three players in concussion protocol, none of whom practiced. Chief among them is 2022 fifth-overall pick Kayvon Thibodeaux, who has a team-high 8.5 sacks (New York has 15 total sacks). Rookie wide receiver Jalin Hyatt is one of the other players who didn’t practice on Wednesday because of a concussion. Veteran cornerback Adoree’ Jackson, who missed Week 10 with a neck issue, is the final non-participant because of a concussion.
Right tackle Evan Neal, the Giants’ seventh overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, missed last week because of his ankle. That same injury kept him out of practice on Wednesday. Meanwhile, two cornerbacks, 2023 first-round rookie Deonte Banks (ankle) and Cor’Dale Flott (shoulder), were limited participants.
Quarterback Tommy DeVito is also dealing with a banged-up shoulder, but is expected to be fine. The New York Giants have already announced that he will start in Week 11. DeVito has been pressed into action as a rookie because Daniel Jones (knee, out for the season) and Tyrod Taylor (ribs, on IR) can’t play.
The New York Giants Week 11 Game
After getting demolished on the road against one NFC East rival, the New York Giants are traveling to take on another. The 4-6 Washington Commanders, one of New York’s two wins, are up next on the schedule. Considering that the 2-8 Giants beat them once, could this be a rare win for Big Blue?
That’s the hope on Sunday at least, as a healthy Saquon Barkley could give the Commanders’ defense fits once again. The Giants defense only allowed seven points in that Week 7 victory. Regardless of who suits up this week, New York’s locker room will be gunning for another win. Getting some of these players back would help a lot though.
