Lex Of It: Giants-Jaguars 2022 Final Injury Report Week Seven

The New York Giants will be without a pair of their edge defenders on Sunday when they face the Jacksonville Jaguars. Azeez Ojulari, who has played in only two games this season, will miss a third straight week with his second calf injury of the season.

Heading into Week 7, Jones leads the NFL with four game-winning drives this season. He totaled three game-winning drives in his first three years in the league. His 67.3 completion percentage would be the highest of his career, while his two interceptions and two fumbles through six games are both on pace to be career-lows. According to Pro Football Focus, his adjusted completion percentage (which accounts for dropped passes) of 81.2 percent is the highest in the league. In last week’s win over Baltimore, Jones completed over 70 percent of his attempts for 173 yards and two touchdowns.

“His job is to compete, to lead his football team down, particularly the offense, make good decisions with the football, take care of it, execute in the red zone,” Daboll said about Jones after the Week 6 win. “And this was another fourth quarter one for him. Again, when you’re a quarterback, you love to throw it 60 times a game. But we have to, each week, we have to play the way we think we have to play. Look, it was far from perfect. It really was. That’s a hell of a football team over there, but I appreciate the way he competes. And I think his level-headedness really helps him.”

Giants-Jaguars injury report

Giants

Out

CB Cor’Dale Flott (calf) WR Kenny Golladay (knee) OLB Azeez Ojulari (calf) WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) OLB Oshane Ximines (quad)

Questionable

C Jon Feliciano (groin) DB Jason Pinnock (ankle)

Giants Rookie free agent Tomon Fox, ‘is likely to be the third edge defender behind Kayvon Thibodeaux and Jihad Ward. It could also mean the elevation of second-year player Quincy Roche from the practice squad for the game. The G-Men will also continue to be without cornerback Cor’Dale Flott (calf), wide receiver Kenny Golladay (knee) and wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hamstring).

Offensive Linemen, Center Jon Feliciano (groin) and left tackle Andrew Thomas (elbow) are questionable. Head coach Brian Daboll said on Friday, though, that both players “should be good” for Sunday.

SAQUON ‘MANAGING’ SHOULDER

Saquon Barkley has been tremendous this season. The 5th-year running back leads the NFL with 771 total yards from scrimmage, and is the only player with 85+ total yards in every game this year. Barkley was briefly forced out of the Week 5 win over Green Bay when he injured his shoulder, but returned to the field and ended up scoring the game-winning touchdown. The talented back was a limited participant in practice last week and ended up playing 88 percent of the snaps against Baltimore, finishing with 95 total yards and a touchdown. Barkley has once again been limited at practice this week, and while he did call the injury “annoying”, he isn’t worried about it affecting his productivity.

“It’s annoying, but it’s not something that’s going to stop me from going out there and being able to produce,” said Barkley. “Just like anything throughout the season, it’s every year – it’s football, something is going to happen. Just got to stay with it. The trainers have been doing a really good job of setting up a program for me and also getting in the strength room, setting up a great program too. Just stick with it.”

Barkley was not listed on the final injury report.

Jaguars

Out

WR Jamal Agnew (knee) CB Shaquill Griffin (back)

Questionable

DL Folorunso Fatukasi (quad) DT DaVon Hamilton (foot) WR Marvin Jones Jr. (hamstring) LB Foyesade Oluokun (calf)

Fatukasi, Hamilton, Jones, and Oluokun were all listed as questionable last week, but Fatukasi and Jones were later downgraded to out and did not travel with the team to Indianapolis.

Fifth-year cornerback Tre Herndon, who has 30 career starts with the Jaguars, will be in line to take over for Griffin in the starting lineup. Wide receiver Christian Kirk is expected to take over punt return duties.
