Lands on Arizona's practice squad

The Cardinals signed Board to the practice squad Wednesday, Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Analysis: With Rondale Moore (hamstring) and Andy Isabella (back) dealing with injuries, the Cardinals signed Board and Stanley Berryhill to the practice squad as insurance. Arizona won't get DeAndre Hopkins (suspension) back until Week 7, so Marquise Brown, A.J. Green and Greg Dortch will likely continue to be the Cardinals' top wideouts, while the veteran tight end Zach Ertz carves out a solid role as Kyler Murray's security blanket.

Cut from practice squad

The Giants released Board (ribs) from the practice squad Tuesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Board suffered a ribs injury during the Giants' preseason opener, so he may have been cut with an injury designation. The 28-year-old suited up for six games with New York last season.

Comes back on NYG practice squad

The Giants signed Board (ribs) to the practice squad Wednesday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Board suffered a rib injury during the Giants' exhibition against the Bengals on Aug. 21 that sidelined him for the remainder of the preseason, and he was let go as part of the team's final roster cuts Tuesday as a result. When healthy, the 28-year-old wideout will now have a chance to work his way up from the practice squad to the active roster this regular season.

Released by Giants

The Giants released Board (ribs) on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Board missed the Giants' preseason finale against the Jets on Sunday due to a rib injury but is expected to return to the field this week, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Although he didn't land a spot on the 53-man roster, he's a strong candidate to return to the Giants as part of their practice squad.

Out Sunday

Board (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's preseason finale against the Jets, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Board suffered the injury after being tackled on a kickoff return during last Sunday's matchup against Cincinnati. The 28-year-old wideout also fumbled on the play, so it was an unfortunate sequence for a guy fighting for a roster spot. The extent of the injury remains unclear, but if it looks like he'll remain sidelined to start the regular season, it'll be hard for the Giants to justify keeping him on the roster.

Hurts ribs after fumbling

Board (ribs) won't return to Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: To add insult to injury, Board lost a fumble on a kickoff return on the play on which he got hurt. That's an unfortunate sequence for the 28-year-old wide receiver, who's battling to make the team. Board will look to heal up in time to play in the Giants' Aug. 28 preseason finale against the Jets.

Back with Big Blue

Board agreed to a contract with the Giants on Monday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official website reports.

Analysis: Board played in the first six games of the 2021 campaign. He caught four passes for 51 yards and averaged 24.8 yards on 11 kickoff returns and 16.5 yards on two punt returns. However, he fractured his arm during a blowout loss to the Rams on Oct. 17, which landed him on injured reserve for the rest of the season. Nonetheless, the undrafted wideout out of Chattanooga figures to be healthy and ready to contribute by training camp.

Shifts to injured reserve

Board (arm) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Michael Elsen of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Board fractured his arm during Sunday's loss to the Rams, so it's hardly a surprise to see him move to injured reserve. The 27-year-old will be eligible to return from injured reserve after missing three games, though he's likely facing a longer absence.

Oct 19, 2021 3:12 PM EST

Suffers broken arm

Board has suffered a broken arm, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com.

Analysis: Board left the game in the first play of the second half and it turns out he picked up a serious injury. No timetable has been announced for his recovery, but the receiver is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Oct 17, 2021 1:34 PM EST

Not returning Sunday

Board (forearm) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Rams, according to Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site.

Analysis: Board got hurt badly after a 37-yard kickoff return and trainers ran to him very quickly. The fact that they signaled for the cart almost immediately is not a good sign, and the entire team quickly approached Board to wish him well as if he had suffered a serious injury. His next chance to play will come next Sunday against Carolina, but that would depend on the severity of the injury.

Catches two passes in loss

Board secured two of his three targets for 7 yards in Sunday's 44-20 loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: Board played on 31 percent of the Giants' offensive snaps Sunday. The wideout was unable to make the most of his opportunities in a game that New York trailed for the majority of the contest. Things could open up for Board to become more involved in the passing game while teammate Kenny Golladay is sidelined with a knee injury, especially if Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton continue to miss time with hamstring injuries. The Giants will host the Rams in Week 6.

Oct 13, 2021 2:01 AM EST

Will practice Wednesday

Coach Joe Judge said Board (shoulder) will be a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Board left Week 4 after suffering a clavicle injury, but he appears to have avoided a serious injury. The 27-year-old hasn't been a critical part of the Giants' offense this season, but with Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton both nursing hamstring injuries, the Giants can't afford to lose any more wide receiver depth.

Oct 6, 2021 8:14 AM EST

Nursing clavicle injury

Board (shoulder) suffered a clavicle injury during Sunday's 27-21 win over the Saints, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Board wasn't targeted before being forced out of Sunday's game. Beyond the nature of his shoulder injury relating to his clavicle, the Giants haven't released many specifics about the wideout's health. With Sterling Shepard (hamstring) and Darius Slayton (hamstring) both already hurt, this is a team that can't afford to lose more pass catching depth.

Oct 4, 2021 6:07 AM EST

Injures shoulder Sunday

Board (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Saints, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: After playing 20 offensive snaps and catching one of two targets for 38 yards in Week 3, Board didn't see a target in Week 4. The 27-year-old left the contest late in the second half with a shoulder injury and is unlikely to return. With Jabrill Peppers (hamstring) already ruled out, rookie Kadarius Toney may take over return duties for the remainder of the contest.

Oct 3, 2021 1:20 PM EST

Catches 38-yard pass

Board caught one of his two targets, a nice 38-yard throw up the sidelines Sunday against the Falcons.

Analysis: Board saw more snaps with Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton nursing hamstring injuries. Should they miss time, Board could see more work, but Kenny Golladay, Collin Johnson, Evan Engram and Kadarius Toney are still around.

Sep 28, 2021 2:49 AM EST

Officially signs with New York

Board was signed to the active roster Saturday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official sitereports.

Analysis: The team's top kick returner, Board will officially join the active roster after being a practice squad callup each of the last two weeks. Through two games, Board has 86 kick return yards, but has been targeted just once across 12 offensive snaps.

Sep 25, 2021 1:39 PM EST

Goes back to practice squad

Board reverted to the Giants' practice squad Friday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: For the second week in a row, Board was a part of the action on game day. Only this time, it was eventful, and not in a good way. While he had one six-yard carry and returned one kickoff for 20 yards Thursday at Washington, Board also committed a holding penalty on what otherwise would have been a 58-yard TD run by quarterback Daniel Jones. The Giants ended up settling for a field goal on the drive, and the four-point swing may have been enough in the eventual one-point loss. On a positive note, Board's average kick return this season has gone for 28.7 yards on three attempts, so that may be enough for him to get back on the active roster again in the future.

Sep 17, 2021 4:34 PM EST

Jumps to active roster

The Giants elevated Board to the active roster in advance of Thursday's game at Washington, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The Giants made the same move Week 1 against the Broncos, when Board gathered in his only target for six yards and returned two kickoffs for 66 yards. With a healthy receiving corps in front of him, it'll be difficult for him to contribute much more in the box score.

Sep 16, 2021 3:32 PM EST

Elevated by Giants

Board was elevated from the Giants' practice squad ahead of Sunday's Week 1 matchup against Denver, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Board was let go by the Giants on Tuesday but later joined the team's practice squad. However, he'll be on the active roster for the season opener and will serve as depth at wide receiver.

Sep 11, 2021 6:21 PM EST

Waived by Big Blue

The Giants waived Board on Tuesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Board was waived to make room for Nate Ebner. The 27-year-old Board injured his elbow during the Giants' preseason finale, but he appears healthy and is a candidate to return to New York as a practice squad member.
