The New York Giants come into the 2019 season with a different looking team from just one season ago.
The team traded away Odell Beckham Jr. and Olivier Vernon during the off season and acquired Jabrill Peppers and Golden Tate. The offense looks a bit depleted without Beckham but the team does still have the 2018 Offensive Rookie of the Year Saquon Barkley and returning players Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram.
Eli Manning’s time as the Giants quarterback could be coming to an end fairly soon. The Giants, to much of their fans’ immediate disappointment, selected Daniel Jones with the No. 6 pick of the draft and appeared to prove in the preseason that he isn’t what the fans thought he’d be.
New York also has a different look on defense with two rookies – Dexter Lawrence and Deandre Baker – who appear to be the season-opening starters against the Dallas Cowboys.
There should be zero expectations for the Giants going into the 2019 season as they continue to rebuild.
The Giants didn’t intend for Latimer’s presence to be such a big deal, but that’s what happens when Golden Tate is suspended and Sterling Shepard (concussion) is ruled out. Latimer was a mid-week addition to the injury report, listed as a non-participant Thursday after he was limited to some jogging on a side field with the training staff. The Giants are scheduled for a 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, with Bennie Fowler, Russell Shepard, Cody Core and TJ Jones left as the healthy wide receivers if Latimer can’t play. Either way, it’ll be a busy day for Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram, to say the least.
The Giants already were missing Golden Tate (suspension) and also have Cody Latimer (calf) listed as questionable. Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram could see volume beyond the already huge expectations, with the healthy options at wide receiver limited to Bennie Fowler, Russell Shepard, Cody Core and TJ Jones. The next chance for Sterling Shepard to play will be Week 3 in Tampa Bay (Sept. 22).
