Weatherford talked about Big Blue’s season thus far and his nagging ankle injury. Also, superheroes were obviously discussed.
The Giants (3-2) are back and ready to make a run at the playoffs for the first time in three seasons. And the next two weeks should tell the story.
The New York Football Giants are looking for their first September win in over two years, as Big Blue hosts the Houston Texans on Sunday. New York lost two key contributors, cornerback Walter Thurmond and wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan, for the season in the loss to the Arizona Cardinals last weekend.
Torn ligaments in his left ankle seemingly aren’t going to prevent Steve Weatherford from punting for the New York Giants.
The New York Giants head into their home opener relatively healthy, with the exception of punter Steve Weatherford, who suffered torn ligaments in his ankle against Detroit on Monday. For the Arizona Cardinals, starting running back Andre Ellington has not practiced much this week, and quarterback Carson Palmer is questionable with a sore right shoulder.
Maybe the Giants could have used more preseason reps. Then again, maybe those would not have been enough, either, given the poor matchup against the Lions.
Meet the NFL players you need to follow this football season.
Lauren Delbert asked her football hero, Giants punter and occasional fitness model Steve Weatherford, to go to her June 6 prom in a Twitter post.
Baas played three games last season because of knee and neck injuries. The Giants will save more than $1.75 million in salary-cap space by cutting him.
The New York Giants limped past the lifeless Washington Redskins 20-6 in the rainy Meadowlands. New York lost quarterback Eli Manning to an ankle injury late in the first half, but rode two Jerrel Jernigan touchdowns to the victory. The loss likely ends the Mike Shanahan-era in Washington.
The Seattle Seahawks came to the Big Apple looking to maintain its position as the top seed in the NFC playoff hunt. The New York Giants had very little to play for, since they were eliminated from playoff contention last week. Seattle dominated New York defensively and shut out the G-men, 23-0, in a lackluster affair at MetLife Stadium.
Make no mistake about it. The Giants still have many elements to improve as they attempt to win their fourth consecutive game. But the Packers are reeling – with injuries on both sides of the ball.
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.
“Last year, with what I went through, I’m still sticking to my story,” Amukamara said. “That wasn’t bullying at all. That was just fun in the locker room.”
The Giants have pointed the arrow in the right direction over the past two weeks, although there’s still much work to be done following Sunday’s 15-7 road victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.
