Giants LB Tae Crowder (thigh) is active for today's game against the Panthers. The injury gives him some risk, but Crowder remains the top play among Giants ILBs.

Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) is active for today’s game against the Panthers. He was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday before returning to a limited practice on Friday. Engram is a high-risk Week 7 fantasy play.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Panthers. WRs Darius Slayton (hamstring) and John Ross (hamstring) are active. They figure to join Dante Pettis as New York’s top 3 WRs. Slayton has some WR3 appeal as the likely target leader.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) has an "outside chance" to return for next weekend's game vs. the Chiefs. Barkley will "likely" be back for Week 9's game vs. the Raiders, Rapoport adds. It's not a surprise after Barkley remained sidelined in practice all week. We'll see if he gets back on the field this coming week, but fantasy owners shouldn't plan on having him in Week 8 lineups.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Giants WRs Darius Slayton (hamstring) and John Ross (hamstring) are expected to play against the Panthers today, barring a setback in pregame warmups. WR Sterling Shepard, meanwhile, is a game-time decision with his hamstring injury. We'll get his status around 11:30 am ET, but Shepard will obviously come with elevated risk in fantasy lineups if he ends up active.

Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) is expected to play vs. the Panthers today, barring a setback in pregame warmups, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Engram seemingly aggravated his calf injury in Thursday's practice and then was limited on Friday. He's a risky Week 7 fantasy play.

The Giants added LB Tae Crowder to the injury report Saturday, listing him as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers with a thigh injury. The team also elevated LB Benardrick McKinney from the practice squad. We'll check Crowder's status Sunday morning when the inactives come out. If he's out, Reggie Ragland would likely lead Giants ILBs in playing time.

Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Panthers. He was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday before returning to a limited practice on Friday. Engram will be a high-risk fantasy play if he ends up active on Sunday.

Giants WRs Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and John Ross are questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers with their hamstring injuries. Slayton seems to be in the best shape after putting in 3 limited practices this week. Ross was limited on Thursday and Friday. Shepard was added to the injury report on Thursday and then limited on Friday. He looks like the shakiest bet to play on Sunday. The Giants' healthy WRs right now are Dante Pettis and Collin Johnson. We'll get the team's inactives around 11:30 am ET.

As expected, Giants WRs Kenny Golladay (knee) and Kadarius Toney (ankle) have been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers. Neither guy practiced all week. We'll see if they can make it back for Week 8.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers. He didn't practice all week, so a Week 8 return is far from a lock. Devontae Booker gets another game as lead back on Sunday and is a volume-based RB2 in fantasy lineups.

Giants TE Evan Engram did not practice on Thursday due to a calf injury. He missed the first 2 games of the season with a calf, although it's not confirmed that this is related. Regardless, he now looks iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard was added to Thursday's injury report as limited with a hamstring. We don't have any details right now, but mid-week downgrades are never good. WR Darius Slayton (hamstring) remained limited on Thursday, while WR John Ross (hamstring) returned to a limited practice after sitting out Wednesday. We'll update the Giants' banged-up WR corps again tomorrow.

Giants WRs Kenny Golladay (knee) and Kadarius Toney (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. The New York Daily News' Pat Leonard confirms that both are expected to miss this weekend's game vs. the Panthers. WR Sterling Shepard should soak up a bunch of targets in that one.

Giants WR Darius Slayton (hamstring) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. If he's able to return for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers, he'd likely be the Giants' #2 WR with Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney expected to miss.

Giants WR Kenny Golladay (knee) remained sidelined on Wednesday. It's not a good start for his chances of returning for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers. We'll see if Golladay is able to get back on the practice field tomorrow.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. At this point, fantasy owners should be assuming he'll miss this weekend's game vs. the Panthers. We'll continue to monitor Barkley's progress.

The Giants aren't planning to place WR Kadarius Toney (ankle) on IR, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano. Vacchiano does confirm that Toney is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Panthers. But it sounds like there's a chance he's back for Week 8 or at least Week 9. Toney is worth stashing on fantasy benches in the meantime.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney is "likely to miss time" with his ankle injury, according to The New York Daily News. Toney is still being evaluated, but "sources have indicated it’s more serious than a simple sprain," insider Pat Leonard writes. Fantasy owners should plan on being without Toney at least for Week 7. We'll see if the Giants get WR Kenny Golladay (knee) or WR Darius Slayton (hamstring) back for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney appeared to re-injure his ankle in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Rams. He headed back to the locker room with trainers. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: Toney has been ruled out for the rest of the game.
