The New York Giants aren’t playing today from liny's blog


— they have to wait until Monday Night Football to take the field against the San Francisco 49ers. A couple of former Giants , however, will be notably active Sunday. Ereck Flowers and Davis Webb are both in the news for their new teams.Adam Schefter of ESPN reported early Sunday morning thatFlowers will get the start at left tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Flowers started the season as the Giants’ starting right tackle, but was benched following their week 2 loss to the Dallas Cowboys despite showing improvement in his second game at the position. He was later cut and signed as a free agent by the Jaguars when their own starting left tackle, Cam Robinson New York Giants Womens T-Shirt , was lost to injury. But Flowers won’t be the only former Giants who will be notably active Sunday. Former Giants’ backup quarterback Davis Webb was promoted from the New York Jets practice squad to their active roster following an injury to Sam Darnold. Webb was one of the more surprising cuts prior to the regulars season. There were reports from a variety of writer throughout the offseason program that the big-armed workaholic, at times, appeared to be the Giants’ best quarterback. He had a bad start to the preseason, but rebounded impressively with a very strong start against the Detroit Lions. There were many who assumed that he would be the Giants’ backup in the regular season and battle Kyle Lauletta for the chance to be the heir to Eli Manning.Apparently New York Giants Hats , Webb wasn’t impressive enough and was waived as a part of the final cut-downs. He ultimately landed on the Jets’ practice squad, but his contract structure suggested that was only temporary. Josh McCown is still the likely starter, but Webb will finally be active and have the chance to play in a real NFL game.Carolina TE Greg Olsen won’t play vs. Giants on Sunday The Carolina Panthers could get an offensive boost when they play the New York Giants. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that All-Pro tight end Greg Olsen might make his return from injury this Sunday.Olsen fractured his foot in the Panthers week one victory over the Dallas Cowboys. It was the same foot which had been surgically repaired following a Jones fracture at the start of the 2017 season. Olsen managed to avoid surgery and the injured reserve and his return could provide a major boost to a Panthers passing offense which as relied heavily on running back Christian McCaffrey. If he is able to return this week and be anything like the Greg Olsen with whom the NFL has become familiar, that would be bad news for a Giants’ defense which has been 22nd in the league against tight ends. The good news New York Giants Womens Hoodie , for the Giants anyway, is that risk of re-injury makes a week six return more likely for Olsen. As well as the fact that foot injuries can be problematic for receivers, and the original fracture is similar to the ones once suffered by Hakeem Nicks and Dez Bryant. That being said, it would be foolish for the defense to plan for anything other than Olsen to be playing and at full strength.
