The Giants’ rookie receiver (quad) left Monday’s game with a quad injury in the fourth quarter and was not on the field with the other receivers during Wednesday’s viewing period before two walk-throughs. According to the estimated injury report, Tony, who leads the Giants with 35 catches and 392 yards despite stability issues, was one of six players who would not have participated in full practice.
“There are many, because of the bumps and bruises, we will choose one [walk-through] “He’s going to be with the coaches for part of it, he’ll be here for part of it,” the judge already said, based on different reasons for each boy and different parts of the game with them.
Sterling Shepard (Quad) was also a non-participant, which is a surprise after the move in the right direction last week. Shepard has missed five of the last seven games, but was on the field (not running en route) on Wednesday.
Others who dropped out of practice were special-team Nate Ebner (knee) and Cullen Glaspia (calf) and tight ends Kyle Rudolph (ankle) and Caiden Smith (knee).

The Giants dropped TE Chris Myrick from the practice squad – not a promising sign for Rudolph and Smith’s position. He has played four other matches. Ebner was placed on injured reserve, meaning he would miss three more of the last three games.
Saxon was estimated as the limited participants, leaving behind Barkley (ankle), linebacker Lorenzo Carter (ankle), cornerback Adori Jackson (quad) and receiver John Ross (quad).
Safety Logan Ryan has still received two negative COVID-19 test results no more than 24 hours apart that he needs to return to the team and play on Sunday as a vaccinated player.
“He hasn’t really gone close to trial,” the judge said. “There’s still a window of time, so we’ll see where that leads.”
Cornerback James Bradberry took responsibility for a 5-yard touchdown catch by Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans, which stunned brothers Eli Manning and Peyton Manning on Monday’s broadcast as they defeated Giants safari JR Reed and Julian Love double-teaming tight end Cameron Brett. Saw and accepted one. Should have been with Bradberry on Evans.
“What went wrong was he was a big dude, so I should have played him further down instead of being hip-to-hip with him,” Bradberry said. “That way I can defend myself at the goal line and force him to throw over the top. I didn’t expect that play to help. That’s the call.”
