Atlanta has suffered key losses all season. Deion Jones, Keanu Neal, and Devonta Freeman is the latest. Freeman was placed on injured reserve this past week with a groin injury, which he is undergoing surgery for. Although head coach Dan Quinn emphasized Freeman will still be eligible to return before the season is over, it is unlikely.he will.
Last week, wide receivers Calvin Ridley (ankle) and Mohamed Sanu (hip) were each added to that list when they were injured in a 34-29 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Ridley and Sanu did not practice most of last week but returned Saturday, and are now each questionable against New York.
The Giants’ problems intensified last week as wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. once again caused a stir. After being held to just six receptions for 44 yards in an embarrassing 34-13 defeat to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6, Beckham Jr. went to the locker room, which ended up being a notable sports media talking point.
Odell’s frustrations, though extra curricular, are justified. The newly signed receiver just wants to win, which has seemed to escape Big Blue the past few seasons. New York has lost three consecutive games, and allowed 30-plus points in each contest. Mounting problems on offense have now leaked to the defense, which performed well to start the season, including a road win against the now-first place Houston Texans.
Giants tight end Evan Engram (knee) has missed the past few weeks, but was taken off the injury report this week. Engram is set to return on Monday night.
