Won't play against Packers

Golladay (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Golladay did not practice in any capacity Wednesday or Thursday, and he was ruled out early in the week as the team will travel to London for its Week 5 matchup against Green Bay. Golladay has struggled to get consistently involved in the Gaints' offense this season, as he has played only 92 offensive snaps and recorded two receptions for 22 yards across four games. With Kadarius Toney (hamstring) also ruled out, the team's receiving corps is likely to primarily consist of David Sills and Richie James (ankle) while Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) could also make his NFL debut.

Fails to practice

Golladay (knee) didn't practice Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports reports.

Analysis: With Golladay not having practiced in either of the Giants' first two Week 5 sessions, he's unlikely to make the flight to London with the team Friday in advance of Sunday's matchup with the Packers. Instead, Golladay is expected to remain in New York to continue rehabbing his knee after reportedly suffering an MCL sprain in the Week 4 win over the Bears. The Giants haven't confirmed the injury or provided a timeline for his return, but Golladay may be closer to week-to-week than day-to-day at this stage.

Likely out Week 5 with MCL sprain

Golladay (knee) has been diagnosed with a MCL sprain and isn't expected to make the trip to London for the Giants' Week 5 game against the Packers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Golladay suffered the injury in Sunday's win over the Bears and will likely remain in New York during the upcoming week to begin a rehab program. Before hurting his knee, the sixth-year wideout was already off to a rough start to the season, as he's seen his snap counts drop off considerably since Week 1 while managing only two receptions for 22 yards on six targets. His expected absence this weekend nonetheless weakens an already depleted position group; Sterling Shepard (knee) and Collin Johnson (Achilles) are out for the season, and Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) and Kadarius Toney (hamstring) are uncertain to put an end to multi-game absences Sunday.

Unlikely to face Packers

Coach Brian Daboll said Monday he does not expect Golladay (knee) to suit up versus the Packers in Week 5, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: Golladay was forced out of Sunday's win over the Bears with a knee injury, and it looks like he could be in line to miss some time. The Giants already had Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) sidelined, so it's possible the team's receiving corps could be significantly depleted again Week 5. Meanwhile, Daniel Jones (ankle) and Tyrod Taylor (concussion) are managing injuries of their own.

Picks up knee injury

Golladay departed Sunday's game versus the Bears due to a knee injury, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: Golladay appeared to hurt his knee on the same possession in which quarterback Daniel Jones picked up a left ankle injury late in the third quarter. While Jones had his ankle taped up and stayed on the sideline, Golladay made his way to the locker room, according to Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record. If Golladay is unable to reenter the contest, he'll finish Week 4 with no catches on one target.

Works with starters during warmups

Golladay is working with the starters prior to Sunday's game against the Bears, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Analysis: It's not clear exactly what this means for Golladay's role in Week 4, but with the Giants thin at the wideout spots, he will have a chance to be more involved after being blanked in the box score each of the past two weeks.

Makes nothing of three targets

Golladay failed to catch any of his three targets in Monday's 23-16 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Golladay voiced his displeasure after being benched in Week 2, and his involvement in the Giants' offense remained minimal in Week 3. When he was on the field, Golladay was ineffective -- highlighted by a drop midway through the fourth quarter that could have given the team a chance to keep a vital drive alive. Golladay's future in New York is murky, but his involvement in the gameplan could tick up pending the absence of Sterling Shepard (knee).

Could ask for trade

Golladay said "we'll see how it goes" when a reporter asked him Wednesday if he planned to request a trade, Connor Hughes of reports.

Analysis: Coach Brian Daboll demoted Golladay from a starting job Week 1 (77 percent snap share) to the bottom of the depth chart Week 2 (3 percent), with David Sills replacing the former Lion in the starting lineup. Golladay is in the second season of a four-year, $72 million contract, but the Giants might be able to trade him if they eat some of the guaranteed money. Sills, Sterling Shepard, Richie James and Kadarius Toney all saw far more playing time in the Week 2 win over Carolina.

Barely plays Sunday

Golladay was not targeted in Sunday's 19-16 win over the Panthers.

Analysis: Golladay barely saw the field as the Giants opened with a second straight victory. After signing a lucrative contract with New York last offseason, it now appears Golladay has fallen down the pecking order, opening the door for David Sills to get involved Sunday. With a Monday night game against the Cowboys looming in Week 3, Golladay's value is trending in the wrong direction.

Sep 18, 2022 1:42 PM EST

Quiet showing in opener

Golladay caught both his targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 21-20 win over the Titans.

Analysis: The 28-year-old's second season with the Giants began in the same disappointing fashion as his first campaign, as Golladay failed to make much of an impact. He's now failed to reach 25 receiving yards in four straight games and six of his last nine, and he's still looking for his first touchdown with New York after scoring 13 in his last 21 games for the Lions.

Underwent surgery in spring

General manager Joe Schoen revealed Thursday that Golladay underwent an unspecified "procedure" which resulted in him missing some time back in spring, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: Golladay dealt with hip, knee, groin and rib issues while suiting up for 14 games with the Giants last season, but Schoen did not disclose which injury the 28-year-old's offseason surgery was intended to address. Still, the fact that Golladay had to recover from a spring procedure provides more context to his offseason performance, which Dan Benton of USA Today reports was decidedly underwhelming. That said, Golladay didn't miss a day of practice during the preseason, and he's still locked in as one of New York's top wide receivers. Until he proves an ability to produce in the new offensive system brought in by first-year coach Brian Daboll, though, fantasy managers will likely have difficulty trusting Golladay in lineups.

No catches in preseason finale

Golladay started but couldn't haul in his only target in Sunday's 31-27 preseason loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Golladay's lone look from quarterback Tyrod Taylor was intercepted on a deep attempt downfield. Following that underwhelming final regular-season tune up, Golladay will now turn his attention to Week 1's matchup versus the Titans, when he projects as one of New York's top wideouts.

Aug 28, 2022 1:46 PM EST

Limited to decoy duties Sunday

Golladay started Sunday's 25-22 preseason win over the Bengals but wasn't targeted.

Analysis: Golladay was on the field for 21 of 24 snaps over the Giants' first three drives, but starting quarterback Daniel Jones didn't look his way a single time. New York was probably more focused on seeing what rookie skill position players like Wan'Dale Robinson and Daniel Bellinger (three targets apiece) can do rather than the five-year veteran Golladay, so don't read too much into his lack of involvement Sunday.

Enjoys strong day in camp

Golladay enjoyed his best performance of training camp Thursday, Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: Golladay made multiple difficult catches during practice, including a tough 40-yarder on an imperfect throw from Daniel Jones. The promising display is a nice turnaround since Golladay and the Giants' offense as a whole hasn't been all that sharp during camp. Golladay will carry high expectations this season as the presumptive WR1 in a new offensive system brought in my head coach Brian Daboll.

One catch in preseason opener

Golladay caught one of three targets for six yards in Thursday's 23-21 preseason win over the Patriots.

Analysis: Golladay and starting quarterback Daniel Jones failed to connect twice on the opening drive, including on 3rd-and-6 from New England's seven-yard line. The veteran receiver finally got his hands on the ball to cap New York's second drive, gaining six yards on 3rd-and-18 before both Jones and Golladay subbed out for the remainder of the game. Locked in as a starting wide receiver for Big Blue, Golladay's likely to keep seeing modest usage throughout the preseason, including the team's home game against the Bengals next Sunday.

Could see action in preseason opener

Coach Brian Daboll indicated Sunday that he's not inclined to rest any of his team's healthy players in Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots, Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reports. Golladay didn't play in the 2021 preseason due to a hamstring injury, but he's been able to practice of late.

Analysis: If Golladay can stay healthy and return to being a threat on contested catches downfield, Dan Dugganof The Athletic suggests that the 6-foot-4, 213-pounder can add a vertical dimension to the Giants' offense this coming season. If that scenario plays out as hoped, Golladay -- who logged a 37/521/0 stat line in 14 games last year -- profiles as a fantasy bounce-back candidate while working as a key cog in a New York wide receiver corps that also includes Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shepard and Wan'Dale Robinson.

Sheds red jersey at OTAs

Golladay (undisclosed) is practicing Thursday without a red jersey, Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: Golladay spent nearly a week taking limited reps at OTAs while wearing a red jersey, but it now appears that he's back to full form. Coach Brian Daboll never disclosed the full details of Golladay's health, but it seems like he was only dealing with a minor injury. Now heading into the second season of his four-year, $72 million contract with the Giants, staying on the field will be a clear priority for Golladay as he works to establish himself as the No. 1 target for Daniel Jones.

May 26, 2022 7:34 AM EST

Limited in practice

Coach Brian Daboll said Thursday that Golladay (undisclosed) is participating in OTAs while wearing a red jersey at practice, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: Daboll said Kadarius Toney (undisclosed) is also wearing a red jersey, but he opted not to comment further on either wideout's injuries. It's completely possible that the Giants are simply taking a cautious approach to the health of both Golladay and Toney, but the situation will warrant monitoring until more details are disclosed. Coming off a disappointing 2021 campaign in which he fought with injuries, only racking up a 37-521-0 line through 14 appearances, it will be key for Golladay to remain healthy for the 2022 season.

Finishes season with three catches

Golladay brought in three of five targets for 22 yards in the Giants' 22-7 loss to Washington on Sunday.

Analysis: The veteran tied for second in receptions on the afternoon despite his very modest tally, but it was emblematic of the state of the Giants' air attack under Jake Fromm. Golladay's first season in New York arguably couldn't have gone much worse relative to expectations, as the prize offseason addition finished with a 37-521 line over 14 games and never found the end zone. Poor quarterback play certainly helped sabotage Golladay's prospects, and he'll have to hope a return to health by Daniel Jones (IR-neck) in 2022 helps correct a lot of what went wrong.

Jan 9, 2022 4:49 PM EST

One target, no catches

Golladay failed to haul in his lone target Sunday against the Bears.

Analysis: The Giants passing game is abominable, and no receiver on the team is worth a look unless you are beyond desperate. Jake Fromm will take over for Mike Glennon at quarterback for Week 18, but he's a long shot to make a difference.
