Can't stick with Giants

New York waived Dickerson on Saturday, Matt Lombardo of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: Dickerson was held without a catch across four appearances in 2019, but he reportedly looked good as a receiver in training camp. He played in eight combined games with the Giants over the last two seasons and also spent time on the practice squad.

Held without a catch in 2019

Dickerson was not targeted across four contests in 2019.

Analysis: Dickerson bounced between New York's roster and practice squad in 2019, contributing as a blocker and special-teams asset when active. He's appeared in eight contests with the Giants over the last two seasons.

Receives promotion

Dickerson was promoted to the Giants' 53-man roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Dickerson has played seven games with the Giants over the past two seasons, and he's been on the practice squad since Nov. 12. With Scott Simonson (concussion) ruled out, Dickerson will work as the No. 2 tight end behind Kaden Smith.

Not playing Week 3

Dickerson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 tilt against the Buccaneers, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Dickerson had previously dealt with a quadriceps injury this week, but he'd been back to full participation by Thursday's practice session. Rhett Ellison and Eric Tomlinson will continue to serve as Evan Engam's backups at tight end.

Full participant in practice

Dickerson (quadriceps) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Dickerson logged his first unrestricted practice session of the season Thursday. He appears on track for Sunday's tilt against the Buccaneers and will likely play his usual role as a run blocker.

Returns to practice

Dickerson (quadriceps) practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Dickerson missed the first two games and all the practices leading up to them, so his appearance Wednesday, albeit limited, is a positive sign. The second-year pro will stick to a run-blocking role if he's able to suit up Sunday versus the Buccaneers.

Ruled out Sunday

Dickerson (quadriceps) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Analysis: Dickerson will miss his second straight game to start the season as he continues to manage the hamstring injury. Eric Tomlinson should again serve as the team's No. 3 tight end in his absence.

No practice Wednesday

Dickerson (quadriceps) did not practice Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Dickerson sat out Sunday's season-opening loss to the Cowboys and still isn't fully healthy. He'll likely need to return to practice Thursday or Friday to have a shot at suiting up Week 2 versus the Bills.

Not available Week 1

Dickerson (quadriceps) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Analysis: Dickerson had the quad issue crop up prior to the preseason finale and he'll now miss the season opener. Eric Tomlinson will serve as the team's No. 3 tight end in his place.

Misses practice Thursday

Dickerson (quadriceps) did not practice Thursday.

Analysis: Dickerson is expected to sit out Sunday's contest against the Cowboys due to his lingering injury. His absence wouldn't carry much fantasy impact with Evan Engram locked in as the clear top tight end in New York.

Won't play Sunday

Dickerson (quadriceps) is ruled out for Sunday's regular-season opener against the Cowboys, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Dickerson has been nursing a quadriceps issue for nearly two weeks. He did not practice Thursday, according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic. As long as Dickerson remains sidelined, Rhett Ellison projects to serve as the uncontested backup to Evan Engram.

Sep 5, 2019 12:43 PM EST


Sidelined during practice

Dickerson (quadriceps) sat out of Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Dickerson was dealing with this issue ahead of the final preseason game, but the team had enough hope for his upside to keep him around on cut-down day. He'll need to get healthy quickly to play Sunday versus the Cowboys. The fantasy impact will be minimal if Dickerson sits out.

Nursing quad injury

Dickerson is dealing with a quadriceps issue, Ryan Dunleavy of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: It's unclear when Dickerson sustained the injury or how severe it is. The injury obviously makes things harder for the 23-year-old as he battles for a backup role on New York's tight end depth chart.

Re-signs with Giants

Dickerson signed a contract with the Giants on Monday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Dickerson was previously waived by the Giants on Oct. 21, but has rejoined the team following the placement of Quadree Henderson (shoulder) on injured reserve. With the status of Evan Engram (hamstring) up in the air, Dickerson will provide New York with depth at the tight end position heading into Sunday's tilt against the Bears.

Hits waivers

The Giants waived Dickerson on Sunday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The Giants were in need of depth at wide receiver so they signed Quandree Henderson, and Dickerson was the casualty. Dickerson worked with the practice squad earlier this season and he'll likely end up there.

Oct 21, 2018 8:51 AM EST


Promoted to active roster

Dickerson was signed to the Giants' active roster Tuesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Dickerson's spot on the 53-man roster was made available due to Evan Engram (knee) being sidelined for the foreseeable future. The undrafted rookie will serve as a depth tight end behind Rhett Ellison and Scott Simonson.
