Giants Get Bad News With Week 7 Injury Report
The 2021 NFL season hasn't treated the New York Giants well. They're 1-5 on the year and now things have gotten worse with the latest Week 7 injury report.
The Giants announced on Friday that Saquon Barkley (ankle), Kenny Golladay (knee) and Kadrius Toney (ankle) will not be suiting up to face the Carolina Panthers. Meanwhile, Darius Slayton (hamstring), John Ross (hamstring), Evan Engram (calf) and Sterling Shepard (hamstring) are all questionable, too.
New York Giants Injury Report
Barkley has been week-to-week with an ankle injury that he suffered against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5. Sixth-year RB Devontae Booker has assumed the No. 1 role with him out, recording 127 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns on 35 total touches.
This week will be Golladay's second missed game in a row after missing Week 6 with the same knee injury. He hasn't practiced in nearly two weeks, so it'll be hard to gauge his return timetable until he begins practicing again.
Meanwhile, Toney's ankle injury came during the Cowboys game as well. He managed to suit up last week too, however, he reaggravated the injury during Week 6 in the first quarter and didn't return. Toney was really starting to heat up before his injury, recording 19 receptions for 303 yards in his last three games.
The Giants are currently 3-point home underdogs against the Panthers this weekend, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
