Kadarius has returned to Tony’s injury report.
The Giants rookie receiver (Quad) left Monday’s game with a quad injury in the fourth quarter and was not on the field with other receivers on Wednesday during the first watch of two walk-throughs. Tony, who leads the Giants with 35 catches and 392 yards despite durability issues, is one of six players who have not participated in full practice, according to an estimated injury report.
“Because there are so many guys, bumps and bruises, we pick one [walk-through] Each person is based on different causes and different parts of the game with them, ”Coach Joe Judge said earlier. “He’s part of it with the coaches. He’s here for the part.”
Sterling Shepard (Quad) was also absent, which is surprising since he was trending in the right direction last week. Shepard has lost five of his last seven games but was on the field Wednesday (not running)
Others estimated to be out of practice are special-teams Nate Ebner (knee) and Cullen Gillespia (calf) and tight ends Kyle Rudolph (ankle) and Kayden Smith (knee).
The signing of TE Chris Myaric from the Giants practice squad – not a sign of hope for Rudolph and Smith’s status. He has played four more games. Ebner was placed on injured reserve, which means he will lose three more games on his last three misses.
Running back Saquon Barkley (ankle), linebacker Lorenzo Carter (ankle), cornerback Adori Jackson (quad) and receiver John Ross (quad) are estimated to be limited participants.
Safety Logan Ryan has yet to split the two negative COVID-19 test results for 24 hours as he needs a player who has been vaccinated to return to the team and play on Sunday.
“They didn’t really go any closer to the test,” the judge said. “There’s still time, so we’ll see where it goes.”
Cornerback James Bradberry took charge of the Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans’ 5-yard touchdown catch, which stunned brothers Eli Manning and Peyton Manning in Monday’s broadcast because they saw Giants safety JR Reid and Julian Love look like a double-team berth. Evans had to be with Bradberry.
“What’s wrong is he’s a big dude, so I had to play him rather than be hip-to-hip with him,” Bradberry said. “That way I can defend myself on the goal line and force him to throw it up. I could not have expected help in that drama. That’s just the call. ”
