New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (hand) is continuing to work through his sprained left thumb and done enough to make offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan believe he'll be able to play through the injury in Week 3 versus the Washington Redskins. "It's something that's not natural. He's used to doing that without the cast. … It's definitely an adjustment that we have great confidence he'll be able to make," Sullivan said.
Fantasy Tip: Sullivan did not reveal whether the injury played a role in Jennings' meager workload in Week 3 (13 carries for 27 yards). Shane Vereen (14 carries, 42 yards) was marginally better and even saw some work at the goal line, but he isn't the answer. Neither Jennings nor Vereen can considered anything better than flex plays in Week 3.

New York Giants OT Marshall Newhouse (calf), DT Robert Thomas (illness) and FS Darian Thompson (foot) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and have been ruled out for Week 3. DE Olivier Vernon (wrist) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: After an encouraging performance in the season opener at Dallas, Jennings disappointed owners everywhere with a flat outing at home against the New Orleans Saints. It looks like he'll be entering the next contest a little hobbled -- if he plays, that is -- which could prevent him from providing RB2 numbers.

Fantasy Tip: It would still be a surprise if Jennings was unable to play this weekend even though he's been limited this week. Check his status heading into the weekend, but he should still be in starting lineups versus a Washington Redskins defense that has given up 122.5 yards and two touchdowns on the ground per game to running backs.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings appears to have a good chance to play in Week 3, but owners should continue to monitor his status. He probably will receive is usual playing time if he is active for the game and can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: OBJ and Norman have exchanged barbs on social media since their confrontation last season. Beckham is a legit WR1 candidate, when healthy, every week. This week is no different.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) had a cast on his left thumb Tuesday, Sept. 20, but he said it will be removed before the Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins Sunday, Sept. 25. Jennings is confident he will play Sunday, and he also noted he could play with the cast on, if needed.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings has been a fantasy bust through the first two weeks with 102 yards on 31 carries (3.3 yards per tote) and three receptions for 16 yards. He's failed to find the end zone, too. However, Washington has been gashed for 4.2 yards per rushing attempt through the first two weeks and allowed a league-high five ground scores. Stay tuned for updates, but don't view Jennings as anything more than a middling RB2 with a low fantasy floor.

New York Giants OT Marshall Newhouse (calf) suffered a calf injury in Week 2 and left the locker room limping in a walking boot. OG Bobby Hart and OT William Beatty would likely be the favorites to take over for Newhouse if Newhouse can't play. S Mykkele Thompson (knee) will miss a few weeks with a knee injury.
