Resigns with New York

The Giants resigned Board to a one-year deal Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Board emerged as a reliable receiver option during his 2020 campaign, catching 11 of his 16 targets for 101 yards across 14 games. The 27-year-old seems to be on track to earning a more notable role with the team's offense in the upcoming year.

Secures 11 passes in 2020

Board caught 11 of 16 targets for 101 yards across 14 games with the Giants in 2020.

Analysis: Board is coming off the best season of his career, and he'll be an exclusive rights free agent with the Giants this offseason. He could return as a depth receiver and special-teams asset for New York in 2021.

Reels in one pass

Board caught his lone target for 10 yards in Sunday's 23-20 win over Washington.

Analysis: Board returned to duty after missing two games with a concussion, and he played 14 of 77 offensive snaps. The 26-year-old also logged his first punt return of the year because Golden Tate (coach's decision) was benched. He'll continue to operate as a depth wide receiver, and he could lose reps if Tate returns.

Absent from injury report

Board (concussion) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, indicating that he's cleared the league's five-step concussion protocol.

Analysis: Board was carted off the field in a scary scene Week 6, but he's made a full recovery after three weeks on the sidelines and should be ready to go moving forward. The 27-year-old will return to his role as the No. 4 wide receiver, but he could get pushed by 2018 second-round pick Dante Pettis, who was claimed off waivers Wednesday, over the next few weeks.

Being held out for Monday night

Board (concussion) is inactive for Monday night's matchup against the Buccaneers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: The 26-year-old made a quick recovery to even enter Monday with a questionable designation, as he was knocked unconscious and carted off the field Oct. 18 against Washington. Board wasn't quite able to gain the go-ahead from team trainers for Monday Night Football, but his progression to limited practice participation indicates he may be ready to get back into the mix Week 9 during a rematch with Washington.

Considered questionable for MNF

Board (concussion) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Buccaneers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Board was carted off the field and taken to the hospital less than two weeks ago, so it's quite surprising that he's made enough progress to possibly get back into the lineup Monday. He'll still need to clear the league's concussion protocol before suiting up, and if he's ultimately ruled out, Board is on track to return Week 9 against the Football Team. Austin Mack should enjoy an uptick in usage if Board sits out.

Oct 31, 2020 6:43 PM EST

Limited to start week

Board (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Board appears to be making progress through the league's five-step concussion protocol, but he'll need to attain full clearance before being eligible to retake the field. He could have a chance to suit back up in time for Monday's game against the Buccaneers.

Oct 29, 2020 3:57 PM EST

Works on side field Tuesday

Board (concussion) worked out on a side field with trainers Tuesday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Board went to the hospital in the Week 6 win over Washington due to a concussion, but Tuesday's workout is proof that the wideout is making progress through the league's concussion protocol. He could still miss the Week 9 clash against Tampa Bay. We'll have a better idea of his status when official practice reports are revealed starting Thursday.

Oct 27, 2020 12:25 PM EST

Ruled out for Thursday's game

Board (concussion) won't play Thursday against the Eagles, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Board's absence isn't surprising considering he was taken to the hospital after being knocked unconscious in last week's win over Washington. After initial fears of a neck injury, Board's injury turned out to be a concussion, and though he has since been released from the hospital, the wide receiver won't be available Thursday. Board will hope to clear the concussion protocol in time for New York's Week 8 clash with the Buccaneers.

Oct 21, 2020 11:50 AM EST

Released from hospital

Board (concussion) was released from the hospital Sunday night, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Board was carted off the field after he was knocked unconscious during Sunday's win over Washington, initially diagnosed with a concussion and sprained neck. The latest update says it was "only" a concussion, though presumably a relatively bad one. Board isn't likely to play in Thursday's game against the Eagles.

Oct 19, 2020 6:57 AM EST

Suffers concussion

Board suffered a concussion and sprained neck in Sunday's game against Washington.

Analysis: Board was carted off the field on a stretcher after he was knocked unconscious, as Salomone reports that he's been taken to the hospital for further evaluation. It's certainly a scary sign when a player heads to the hospital, as he'll also reside in the league's concussion protocol for the time being. As long as Board is sidelined with the injuries, Austin Mack will step in as the team's No. 3 receiving option.

Oct 18, 2020 12:39 PM EST

Knocked unconscious, carted off

Board (head injury) is being evaluated by Giants team doctors after exiting the field on a stretcher Sunday, Les Carpenter of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Board was knocked unconscious during the early stages of the third quarter, presenting a scary sight for teammates and onlookers. The 26-year-old receiver out of Chattanooga had his facemask removed by doctors as medical examination began on a potential head injury. While he remains sidelined, former Ohio State Buckeye, Austin Mack, will step in as the No. 3 WR option.

Oct 18, 2020 11:54 AM EST

One target in loss

Board failed to catch his lone target during Sunday's 37-34 loss to Dallas.

Analysis: The 26-year-old played 28 offensive snaps but was mostly an afterthought in the aerial attack. Board prospects are unlikely to improve with Sterling Shepard (toe) nearing his return from injured reserve.

Oct 12, 2020 2:17 PM EST

Held to one catch in blowout loss

Board caught one of two targets for nine yards in Sunday's 36-9 loss to San Francisco.

Analysis: Board played nearly half of New York's offensive snaps (24 of 52), but didn't do much with that playing time. With Sterling Shepard (toe) on injured reserve, Board should continue to function as New York's No. 3 wide receiver against the Rams in Week 4.

Sep 29, 2020 1:11 PM EST

Should see more targets

Board stands to face increased target opportunities with Sterling Shepard (toe) on injured reserve for at least three weeks, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Board has caught all five of his targets for 49 yards through the first two games of the season, and he should now have the chance to see somewhat more consistent looks. Damion Ratley appears to be ahead of Board for the time being, and neither will operate ahead of any of Darius Slatyon, Golden Tate or Evan Engram. Still, if Board can see an uptick in usage during three-receiver sets, he could emerge on the fantasy radar in extremely deep leagues.

Sep 23, 2020 9:11 AM EST

Not much to show for extra usage

Board caught both of his targets for 17 yards in Monday's 26-16 loss to the Steelers.

Analysis: Board often saw the field in three-wide sets with Golden Tate (hamstring) inactive, playing on 21 offensive snaps (31 percent). He didn't do much with the extra opportunities and will likely see his usage decline if Tate's ready to return in Week 2 against Chicago.

Sep 16, 2020 11:52 AM EST

May have role Monday

Board could have a role in the Giants offense Monday versus the Steelers with Golden Tate (hamstring) inactive, Matt Lombardo of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: In four brief appearances with the Jaguars in 2019, Board hauled in two of four targets for 31 yards and zero touchdowns. He'll be working behind Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Damion Ratley, though, so it's difficult to project many looks for Board in the season opener

Sep 14, 2020 3:09 PM EST

Headed to New York

The Giants have claimed Board off waivers from the Jaguars, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The 26-year-old hauled in two receptions for 31 yards in four games for the Jaguars in 2019 and will now look to stick with the Giants as a depth wideout/special-teamer.

Aug 13, 2020 1:41 PM EST

Let go by Jags

The Jaguars waived Board on Tuesday.

Analysis: Board entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2017, and he finally suited up for a pro game in 2019 when he registered two receptions for 31 yards over four contests. He'll likely land on a practice squad in 2020.

Aug 11, 2020 4:41 PM EST

Appears in four games

Board caught two passes for 31 yards in four games this season.

Analysis: Board spent most of the season on the 53-man roster -- though he was cut and signed to the practice squad for a couple weeks -- and saw his first NFL action since going undrafted out of Chattanooga in 2017. The 26-year-old is under contract for 2020 but likely needs a strong offseason and training camp to retain his spot on the season-opening roster.
