Kadarius Toney is back on the injury record.
The Giants rookie wide receiver left Monday’s game in the fourth quarter with a quad injury and was not on the field with other receivers on Wednesday during the viewing period of the first of two tours. Toney, who leads the Giants with 35 catches and 392 yards despite durability issues, was one of six players who would not have participated in a full practice, according to the estimated injury report.
“There are a number of guys, because of the bumps and bruises we will pick one [walk-through] on each other based on different reasons for each guy and different parts of the game with them, ”coach Joe Judge said beforehand. “He will be with the coaches for a game, he will be here for a game.”
Sterling Shepard (quad) was also a non-participant, which is a surprise after he followed the right direction last week. Shepard has missed five of the last seven games but was on the field (no course) on Wednesday.
Other members deemed out of practice were special teams Nate Ebner (knee) and Cullen Gillaspia (calf) and tight ends Kyle Rudolph (ankle) and Kaden Smith (knee).
Running back Saquon Barkley (ankle), linebacker Lorenzo Carter (ankle), cornerback Adoree ‘Jackson (quad) and wide receiver John Ross (quad) were rated as limited participants.
Security Logan Ryan has yet to receive the two negative COVID-19 test results separated by 24 hours he needs as a vaccinated player to return to the squad and play on Sunday.
“He didn’t really come close to testing,” Judge said. “There’s still a window of time, so we’ll see where it goes.”
Cornerback James Bradberry took responsibility for the 5-yard touchdown by Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans that left brothers Eli Manning and Peyton Manning puzzled on Monday’s show because they saw the Giants’ safeties JR Reed and Julian Love teamed up with tight end Cameron Brate and assumed one was meant to be with Bradberry on Evans.
“What went wrong was he’s a tall guy so I should have played him under more than being neck and neck with him,” Bradberry said. “That way I can protect myself on the goal line and force him to throw it over. I didn’t expect any help on this part. It’s just the call.
