Giants Safety Landon Collins Won’t Play Sunday Due to Shoulder Injury

Giants safety Landon Collins has been ruled out for Sunday with a left shoulder injury, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News has confirmed.

And after Collins underwent further testing on his shoulder Monday, surgery is considered a possibility and he could miss the rest of the season.

This comes despite Collins saying after Sunday’s overtime win over the Bears that initial X-Rays had shown no fracture in the shoulder he injured on a hit of Chicago running back Tarik Cohen.

Collins said Sunday he was just “real sore” after the second-quarter hit on Cohen.

The two-time Pro Bowler missed snaps after the injury, explaining it’s tough to tackle with a bum shoulder.

Giants Coach Pat Shurmur Not Worried About Odell Beckham Jr. Not Agreeing With Sunday’s Game Plan

Odell Beckham Jr. criticized Giants coach Pat Shurmur’s “game plan” on Sunday for not attacking the Eagles’ depleted secondary downfield more in Sunday’s loss.

Shurmur’s response on Monday was basically a long-winded way of saying, he’s wrong, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

“Who said that, Odell?” Shurmur said, feigning no knowledge of Beckham’s quote, even though he was clearly aware. “I dunno. We ran the ball 18 times; we threw it 37. Twice as many throws as runs. We had seven explosive gains in the passing game. Only team we played that we had more was Carolina, we had eight.

“There were many times we tried to throw it to him — the long throw down the right sideline to Rhett was designed to go to Odell,” the coach added. “They cushioned on him, we threw it to Rhett. So you’ll have to ask (Beckham) to define it after he watches the tape. But I felt like we were trying to do the things necessary to win the game… I don’t know if that answers your question.”

Later, Shurmur downplayed Beckham’s comment as “one man’s opinion after an emotional loss.

“But what happens is you get a good night’s sleep and watch the tape and maybe he’ll change his opinion,” Shurmur said with some snark.

The Giants did a lot right on Sunday, as they were able to put away the Bucs, winning their second straight.

Preview: Giants Look to Keep Up Momentum in Sunday Affair with Buccaneers

The Giants are coming off something rare in 2018 – a win. For just the second time this season, the team got into the victory column on Monday night in a comeback win over the San Francisco 49ers, and now turn their attention to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team that has been like watching a roller coaster in 2018.

Tampa started the season making Ryan Fitzpatrick look like Payton Manning in his prime, even beating the what many consider to be the NFL’s best team, the New Orleans Saints, on opening day.

Now, they sit at 3-6 (this after a 2-0 start), and if you look at most sites the G-Men and Bucs are so even at this point the game is listed as a ‘pick em’ (aka it could go either way).

Here’s a quick look at three keys for the Giants:

1. Protect Eli

The Giants did a nice job on Monday of making sure Eli Manning had a clean pocket to throw from, and he did a good job making sure to find his targets. The Bucs pass rush and outside LB’s will look to put the heat on Manning, and he has to make sure to get rid of the ball quickly, but also the guys up front have to do a good job making sure not to get overwhelmed.

2. Cover Downfield

The Bucs like to get players like Mike Evans involved early, and you can look for QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to look downfield to get him going often against the Giants secondary. The Bucs are not afraid to take shots, and look for them to look to get Evans open on crossing routes as he’s not afraid to go over the middle. This is a game where making sure he doesn’t get free is a key.

3. Limit Mistakes

When the Giants lose, it’s often because they make bad mistakes, like bad penalties, turnovers, and just mental mistakes that cost them big plays, big yards, and usually the game. The Bucs are prone to the same mistakes, so in this case it’s likely the team that makes the least of them that is going to walk out with a win. The Giants have to make sure to be that team on Sunday.

Prediction: Look for the ‘1-0’ Giants (yes, they said they wiped the slate clean after the bye week) to come out with some renewed fire after the win Monday over the 49ers. The Bucs are a team that has been so up and down so you really don’t know what to expect, but in this case the Giants have to be the aggressive force in this battle of two of the lesser NFC teams, and here’s a vote they are. Giants 27 Bucs 23

Giants Waive Offensive Lineman Patrick Omameh

The Giants have waived offensive lineman Patrick Omameh according to Art Stapleton of USA Today.

The 28-year-old Omameh signed a three-year, $15 million free agent contract with the Giants back in March and began the year as the team’s starting right guard. He was promptly benched at the end of October for poor play in favor of backup interior lineman Spencer Pulley.

It is a measure of just how big a bust Omameh turned out to be that the Giants could have saved $3 million by waiting until the offseason to part ways with the veteran.

Instead, they were desperate enough to jettison him that the team chose to take on a $3.5 million dead money cap hit in 2019. The former undrafted free agent out of Michigan also struggled as the starting left guard in Jacksonville the past two seasons. He will likely find work as a depth signing.

Giants Head Coach Pat Shurmur Says Eli Manning Starting Monday Night Against 49ers

The Giants might just be the worst team in the NFL (the Raiders have to be in that mix), but that isn’t causing a shift at the QB spot, as Eli Manning will remain the teams’ starter Monday Night for their next game against the San Francisco 49’ers.

Giants head coach Pat Shurmur told reporters Tuesday that the 15-year-vet will be under center Monday night, but that he also told Manning that he’s got to play better moving forward. .

After the Giants’ 34-13 loss against the Eagles in Week 6—when Manning managed 283 yards on 43 attempts—Shurmur told reporters that “we’re not talking about a quarterback change yet.”

This season Manning has thrown for 2377 yards, with eight touchdowns and six picks. His best game came in the teams’ only win over the Texans in week three 27-22, in which he threw for 297 yards with two scores and no interceptions.
