Kenny Golladay News

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.

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.

Clear leader of WR group this week

The Giants may be down to Golladay and practice-squad call ups as their options at wide receiver Sunday in Chicago, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: On the one hand, it works in favor of Golladay seeing more targets, following three straight games with exactly eight. On the other, it's yet another factor working against the Giants offense, which has been worst-in-the-league material throughout the second half of the season. Golladay hasn't topped three catches or 53 yards since Week 4, and he's unlikely to put up strong efficiency numbers with Jake Fromm and Mike Glennon at quarterback.

Another forgettable afternoon

Golladay brought in three of eight targets for 22 yards in the Giants' 34-10 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.

Analysis: Golladay was second on the team in receiving yards, but considering his actual total, that certainly qualifies as faint praise. The veteran offseason addition has unquestionably disappointed from both a football and fantasy sense during his first season in the Big Apple, but a significant chunk of the blame falls on the spotty play of the Giants' revolving door of quarterbacks. That was certainly a major factor in Sunday's meager production, and with either Jake Fromm or Mike Glennon slated to be under center again in Week 17 on the road against the Bears, Golladay's outlook is dim to say the least.

Leads team in receiving yards

Golladay brought in three of seven targets for 53 yards in the Giants' 21-6 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.

Analysis: Golladay's receiving yardage total led the Giants on an afternoon where Mike Glennon and Jake Fromm combined to throw for just 178 yards. The veteran's upside continues to be capped by the revolving door and sub-par play under center, and Sunday's yardage tally counts as his highest since Week 4. Golladay's prospects of boosting his production in a Week 16 battle in a road divisional clash against the Eagles appear bleak irrespective of who's throwing him the ball.

Dec 19, 2021 3:03 PM EST

Brutally inefficient

Golladay caught two passes for 15 yards on eight targets against the Chargers on Sunday.

Analysis: Much like his struggles in general over the 2021 season, Golladay can't be entirely blamed for his disappointing results against the Chargers. Golladay makes his living downfield and on the sideline, where replacement quarterback Mike Glennon is weakest as a passer, but 15 yards on eight targets is still difficult to accept. Perhaps Golladay won't get it going during his first year with the Giants, but his next shot is against the Cowboys in Week 15.

Suiting up Sunday

Golladay (ribs) is listed as active Sunday at the Chargers, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: Golladay gutted through a rib injury last Sunday in Miami, but he relayed after the 20-9 loss that an X-ray revealed no fractures. He proceeded to notch a pair of limited practices to cap Week 14 prep, and Adam Schefter of ESPN later reported that both Golladay and Sterling Shepard (quadriceps) were poised to play this weekend. Golladay has had modest results this year after landing a big payday in the offseason -- he has a 26-409-0 line on 46 targets in nine appearances -- and he may have a tough time posting his first TD of the campaign against a Chargers defense that has allowed the second fewest to wide receivers (six) through 12 games.

Dec 12, 2021 11:43 AM EST

On track to play

Golladay (ribs) is expected to play Sunday against the Chargers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Golladay suffered an injury to his ribs in the Giants' Week 13 defeat to Miami. After logging limited practices both Thursday and Friday, Golladay appears on track to be active and not miss any full games. Even so, it will be important to check the official inactives prior to kickoff at 4:05 P.M. ET. Golladay has yet to truly get on track in New York, as he's surpassed five receptions in only one of his nine games this season and reached 50 yards only four times.

Dec 11, 2021 10:00 PM EST

Listed as questionable

Golladay (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Dan Duggan of The Athletic believes Golladay and Shepard (quad) both are on track to play, while rookie Kadarius Toney (quad) is officially ruled out. It'll likely be Mike Glennon (concussion) throwing the passes, though he's listed as questionable and still needs clearance from an independent neurologist to play. The Giants are scheduled for a 4:05 ET kickoff.

Dec 10, 2021 1:52 PM EST

Back as limited participant

Golladay (ribs) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: New York's top three wide receivers all logged some activity Thursday, with Golladay, Sterling Shepard (quadriceps) and Kadarius Toney (oblique) termed limited participants. According to Dan Duggan of The Athletic, Golladay looked crisp while running routes in individual drills. Friday's injury report will reveal whether Golladay heads into the weekend with a designation or gets a clean bill of health ahead of Sunday's road game against the Chargers.

Dec 9, 2021 2:11 PM EST

Not able to practice

Golladay (ribs) is listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: Dan suggests Golladay tried to go through individual drills but was "moving gingerly" and then went off to the side with the training staff. Other non-participants Wednesday were WR Kadarius Toney (oblique) and QB Mike Glennon (concussion), while WR Sterling Shepard (quad) and QB Daniel Jones (neck) managed limited practices.

Dec 8, 2021 12:16 PM EST

Plays through injury

Golladay recorded three receptions on five targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Dolphins.

Analysis: Golladay got off to a fast start, as he recorded all three of his receptions by the time's first drive of the second quarter. However, he wasn't able to retake the field until early in the second half after he suffered a rib injury. After the game, Golladay told the media that he underwent X-rays that revealed no fractures to his ribs, per Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record. While it appears that he avoided serious injury, it will be worth monitoring Golladay's practice status heading into a Week 14 matchup against the Chargers.

Dec 5, 2021 5:35 PM EST

Back in Sunday's game

Golladay (ribs) returned to Sunday's game in Miami, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Golladay was knocked from the contest in the first half with a rib injury, but he was able to rejoin his offensive teammates after intermission. He'll look to continue building on what so far has been a three-catch, 37-yard performance on three targets.

Dec 5, 2021 11:45 AM EST

Injures ribs Sunday

Golladay was forced out of Sunday's game against the Dolphins with a rib injury, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Analysis: Prior to his exit, Golladay had caught all three of his targets for 37 yards. In his absence, Darius Slayton, John Ross, Pharoah Cooper and Collin Johnson will handle the Giants' Week 13 wideout duties.

Dec 5, 2021 10:53 AM EST

Makes three catches

Golladay caught three passes for 50 yards on seven targets against Philadelphia on Sunday.

Analysis: Matched up with standout corner Darius Slay much of the day, Golladay had a difficult task Sunday and his efficiency dragged accordingly. It's been a frustrating season for Golladay and he gets another potentially challenging matchup against Xavien Howard and Byron Jones in Miami in Week 13, so it's difficult to see him as much more than a boom-or-bust proposition. Be it his fault or an unavoidable outcome of the circumstances, the 'boom' part hasn't happened much to this point in his Giants tenure.

Nov 28, 2021 1:55 PM EST

Catches one pass in loss

Golladay caught one of two targets for 12 yards in Monday's 30-10 loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Golladay played on 76 percent of the New York's offensive snaps, the most of any Giants wide receiver. His one-catch performance marks another disappointment in a forgettable season for the veteran wideout. Golladay will look to bounce back when the Giants square off against the Eagles in Week 12.

Nov 24, 2021 8:06 AM EST

Quiet in return

Golladay recorded two catches on two targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 23-16 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: Golladay returned from a three-game absence, though the Giants' offensive game plan didn't allow any receivers to see significant volume. Daniel Jones took to the air only 20 times, and five different receivers saw multiple targets. The positive news is that Golladay made the most of the opportunities he did see, racking up 14 yards on both of his receptions. He also appears to have not suffered any type of setback and will have an additional week to rest as the Giants head into their Week 10 bye.

Nov 7, 2021 5:46 PM EST

Ends three-game absence

Golladay (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Before being listed as questionable heading into the weekend, Golladay turned in a pair of limited practices Thursday and Friday. The Giants came away encouraged enough with how he looked in those workouts to give him the green light to suit up Sunday, ending a stretch of three straight absences for the wideout. With Sterling Shepard (quadriceps) sidelined for the Week 9 matchup, Darius Slayton and Kadarius Toney are expected to join Golladay as regulars in three-receiver sets for the Giants.

Nov 7, 2021 8:42 AM EST

Trending towards playing

Golladay (knee) is trending towards playing in Sunday's game against the Raiders, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: We likely won't know whether Golladay will be officially active until closer to Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, but it certainly seems like positive news especially considering the veteran wide receiver was a non-participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report. It sounds as if the Giants will have Golladay go through a handful of workouts leading up to the contest in order to make sure the 28-year-old doesn't suffer any setbacks to a knee injury that has kept him out each of the last three weeks. Sterling Shepard (quadriceps) and Saquon Barkley (ankle) will be absent for this matchup which should afford Golladay more looks should he eventually be cleared for Sunday's game.

Nov 6, 2021 7:30 AM EST

Gets questionable tag for Week 9

The Giants list Golladay (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Jordan Raanan of reports. "I would like to," Golladay told Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York, when asked about his chances of playing this weekend. "It depends how my body responds from a couple days [of practice] back-to-back."

Analysis: Golladay is looking to put an end to a three-game absence due to a hyperextended right knee, but his availability is far from locked in at this point. After he was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report, Golladay returned to the field as a limited participant Thursday and Friday. Ideally, the Giants would have wanted to see Golladay practice fully before clearing him to play, but the team could give him the green light to suit up if he checks out fine following a warmup early Sunday. Quarterback Daniel Jones will be without two of his other top pass-catching options Week 9 in Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Sterling Shepard (quadriceps), so Golladay could be in store for a steady dose of targets if he's not out or limited due the knee injury come Sunday.
