Re-signed by Giants

Lands on active roster

Sills was signed by the Giants on Saturday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official sitereports.

Analysis: Sills has spent the majority of the season on the Giants' practice squad, though he has appeared in three games while racking up two receptions for 17 yards. With Kadarius Toney (shoulder), John Ross (knee), and Sterling Shepard (Achilles) all out, Sills figures to serve a depth role among the team's receiving corps Sunday.

Catches lone target in loss

Sills caught his only target for a 12-yard gain in Sunday's 29-3 loss to Chicago.

Analysis: Sills led all Giants pass-catchers not named Kenny Golladay in playing time Sunday but wasn't able to garner much attention. Despite seeing 40 snaps (71 percent), the West Virginia product didn't get a pass thrown his way until the fourth quarter. The 12-yard pickup was the second-longest of the day for the Giants, which just goes to show the state of their offense right now.

Joins active roster for Sunday

Sills was elevated to the Giants' active roster from the practice squad for Sunday's game against the Bears, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Sills had one catch for five yards while playing 15 offensive snaps last week against the Eagles, and he'll be on the 53-man roster again Sunday. He could be more involved versus Chicago since Kenny Golladay is the only regular member of New York's receiving corps that is available for Week 17.

Back to practice squad

Sills reverted to the Giants' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction report.

Analysis: Sills played 15 of the team's 76 offensive snaps and caught his only target for five yards. He also played seven special-team snaps. If the Giants' wideout corps remains depleted, Sills may get another elevation in Week 17.

Joins active roster

The Giants elevated Sills from the practice squad Saturday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Sills previously was on the active roster for one game this season, a Week 7 matchup with the Panthers in which he couldn't gather in his only target. His next catch actually will double as the first of his career if he gets on the field, which could happen in a receiving corps that could be without all of Kadarius Toney (oblique), Sterling Shepard (Achilles/IR), John Ross (COVID-19), Collin Johnson (hamstring), C.J. Board (arm/IR) and Dante Pettis (shoulder/IR).

Back in New York

Sills signed with the Giants' practice squad Thursday, Dan Benton of Giants Wire reports.

Analysis: Sills was waived by the Giants on Tuesday but has now returned to the team in a lesser capacity. He was active in Week 7 prior to being cut, though he wasn't able to convert his only target into a reception.

Waived by Big Blue

The Giants waived Sills on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Sills began the 2021 campaign on the Giants' practice squad, but he was signed to the active roster ahead of Sunday's contest with the Panthers. New York was without its top three wideouts (Kenny Golladay (knee), Sterling Shepard (hamstring) and Kadarius Toney (ankle), so the 25-year-old wideout played 25 offense snaps and dropped his only target.

Signed to active roster

The Giants signed Sills to their active roster Saturday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports.

Analysis: Sills began the 2021 campaign on the practice squad and will now take on a depth role at wide receiver. The 25-year-old hasn't yet appeared in a professional game.

Oct 23, 2021 2:19 PM EST

Waived by Giants

New York waived Sills on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Sills put together a solid preseason with the Giants, so he could draw some interest on waivers. Since going undrafted out of West Virginia back in 2019, Sills has yet to make his NFL debut.

Receiving corps too crowded?

Sills (foot) is facing long odds to earn a spot on the Giants' active roster, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Sills missed all of the 2020 season due to a fractured right foot, and even with a healthy offseason, there may not be room for him on New York's next 53-man squad. Duggan estimates that the Giants will roster six wideouts, and the likes of Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and John Ross account for four of those slots. Dante Pettis seems like another likely active roster candidate, so the addition of one or more rookie wideouts in the 2021 NFL Draft could effectively leave Sills only in a position to compete for a role on the practice squad.

Removed from COVID list

Sills (foot) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: Sills is not yet in the clear from an injury perspective, as he remains on IR with a fractured right foot. The 24-year-old wideout from West Virginia is still in search of his first NFL regular-season appearance.

Jan 7, 2021 6:13 PM EST

Shifts to COVID list

Sills (foot) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Sills has spent the entire season on IR due to his foot injury, and there was no indication that he was nearing a return prior to his placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list. If the Giants can beat the Cowboys on Sunday and get some help, it's possible the depth receiver could heal up in time to participate in a postseason game.

Heads to IR

The Giants placed Sills (foot) on injured reserve Friday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: Sills fractured his right foot, ending an encouraging training camp for the 24-year-old wide receiver. He was expected to make the team, but now he'll shift his focus on the 2021 campaign.
