Lex: Giants (6-2) Safety McKinney Out With Non-Football Injury

The Giants returned to the building to some bad news, as it was revealed that starting safety Xavier McKinney suffered a hand injury during the time off. McKinney was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list Monday and will now miss at least the next four games.

“Important game. At home. Going to have to play well,” Daboll told the media Tuesday. “Came off a bye. Feel like we’re rested. The guys have had a lot of good energy here these last couple of days, and we need to go out there and have a good week like we do every week.” Brian Daboll – New York Giants

The Giants Injury Updates

The Giants come out of the bye week relatively healthy. Unfortunately, the team returned to the building to some bad news, as it was revealed that starting safety Xavier McKinney suffered a hand injury during the time off. McKinney was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list Monday and will now miss at least the next four games.

“I think we’re all disappointed in what happened,” Daboll said about McKinney’s injury. “He’ll do everything he can do to get back. I feel bad for him. I feel bad for us. It’s an unfortunate thing that happened.” Brian Daboll – New York Giants

Outside of McKinney, the rest of the injury news was pretty positive. The Giants announced Tuesday morning that Shane Lemieux was designated to return, and the offensive lineman participated in Tuesday’s practice. Lemieux has been out since suffering a toe injury during training camp.

“The first thing we’re going to do is see him out there on the field and give him a few reps on the look team and see how he responds to that and start with that,” the head coach said about Lemieux’s return. Brian Daboll – New York Giants

Additionally, wide receiver Kenny Golladay (knee), outside linebacker Oshane Ximines (quad) and cornerback Cor’Dale Flott (calf) participated in Tuesday’s practice. While Daboll would not go so far as to guarantee anyone’s return, he shared that all three players “should be ready to go” this weekend. The only players on the active roster who did not partake in Tuesday’s practice were tight end Daniel Bellinger (eye) and right tackle Evan Neal (knee).

Daboll also announced that defensive lineman Nick Williams, who suffered a biceps injury in Seattle, is done for the year after being placed on injured reserve, while cornerback Aaron Robinson (knee) is “doubtful” to return this season.
