Quarterback Daniel Jones cleared to play against Rams



The news was not so good for two of the Giants’ offensive mainstays who suffered injuries against the Cowboys. Running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) and wide receiver Kenny Golladay (knee) were ruled offside.

Four players are questionable: wide receivers Kadarius Toney (ankle) and Darius Slayton (hamstrings), tackle Andrew Thomas (foot) and offensive lineman Ben Bredeson (hand).

Wide receiver Sterling Shepard and safety guard Jabrill Peppers, who did not play last week due to hamstring injuries, were not on the final injury report and will play on Sunday.

Shepard and Slayton suffered right hamstring injuries on September 26 against Atlanta.

“I thought both guys had a great day yesterday,” Judge said. “We’ll see them come back here today and make the final decision on all of these guys regarding the official elimination of the guys after practice today, but I think both guys made some positive steps yesterday in terms of having a chance to play this weekend. “

Thomas, the team’s starting left tackle, was in uniform but did not play in Dallas.

“I think he’s in the same boat as these guys (Shepard and Slayton) over there,” Judge said. “Obviously he’s a little different because he dressed last week for the game. We obviously thought he was well enough last week to at least play in a limited role. improved throughout this week, so we’ll see how he moves today in training and see where that goes to put him in terms of what we expect from him on Sunday. “

With Thomas away, Nate Solder went from tackle right to left and Matt Peart started from the right side. The judge declined to reveal if it will be the roster if Thomas doesn’t play.

“We just go ahead and keep going,” Judge said. “All three are good to play on either side. So we kind of play them based on where we think the games are and what’s best for that player and best for the team. every week. But the three guys can play well and the left. “

* The Giants put rookie linebacker Justin Hilliard on the injured list with an Achilles tendon injury. Hilliard was relinquished to the Giants on September 1, a day after being relinquished by the San Francisco 49ers. He’s played a total of 15 special teams snaps in the last two games, but hasn’t had any tackles.

Hilliard is the second defensive rookie to move to IR in as many days. Cornerback Rodarius Williams, the Giants’ sixth-round pick this year, was named yesterday due to the ACL tear he suffered in Dallas.
