Although the performance against Indy has led to widespread consternation about Manning and his first-unit group, one must understand that McAdoo is keeping things under wraps.
Rashad Jennings is taking advantage of his opportunity to be a key part of the New York Giants’ running game.
Rashad Jennings is atop the depth chart with journeyman Peyton Hillis behind him, followed by Williams and still raw prospects Kendall Gaskins and Michael Cox.
By the time the Jennings-Williams rotation shows any results worth serious analysis, Wilson and his short career will be far from anyone’s mind. Football is cold-hearted that way.
“It was good to get the running game going and get that offensive line firing off,” Manning said after Sunday’s preseason win over Buffalo. “That always helps out the whole offense.”
The severity of Wilson’s neck injury has not been released by the team. One report by NJ.com said the 23-year-old would “need a miracle” to get back on the field.
Wilson insists everything is “fine” with his surgically repaired neck, but the Giants are reportedly preparing for the worst.
Rashad Jennings never made fun of the fat kid with asthma who couldn’t keep up with everyone else: Jennings was that kid.
For whatever Rashad Jennings becomes in the Giants’ backfield, he’ll never top his own personal journey to the NFL.
Rashad Jennings, Peyton Hillis, Michael Cox and David Wilson. Does that make your mouth water? Well that’s what the Giants’ backfield looked like Tuesday after the news broke that Andre Brown signed a deal with the Texans.
The NFL’s first day of free agency was a free-for-all, and the New York Giants were right in the middle of it.
Raiders running back Darren McFadden will play against Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. He has not played since straining a hamstring early in the first half against Philadelphia on Nov. 3.
It certainly was not pretty, but at this point in the season, style points do not matter. The New York Giants played rope-a-dope with the Oakland Raiders, and running back Andre Brown delivered the knockout punch in New York’s 24-20 victory over the Silver and Black on Sunday in a windy MetLife Stadium.
Rashad Jennings will make his second start of the season Sunday against the New York Giants while Darren McFadden rests his sore hamstring
A disappointing 2013 season came to a premature end for New York Giants halfback David Wilson yesterday. The second year player from Virginia Tech was placed on season-ending injured reserve by the G-men, who activated running back Andre Brown from the injured list as well. Meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden sat out practice with a pulled hamstring and looks unlikely to play on Sunday.
