Giants S Jabrill Peppers left Sunday's loss to the 49ers with an ankle injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that it's believed to be a low-ankle sprain. Peppers is likely headed for further evaluation Monday, so we'll see about his outlook for Week 4 and beyond. Julian Love filled in for Peppers, logging a team-high 11 tackles. He'd in play for IDP lineups vs. the Rams on Sunday if Peppers misses further time.
Giants rookie S Xavier McKinney broke his left foot and will have surgery Wednesday afternoon, according to ESPN's Field Yates. There's no word yet on his recovery timeline, but we should expect McKinney to miss at least the beginning of the regular season. Julian Love and Nate Ebner look like candidates to replace McKinney in the lineup. Fellow starter Jabrill Peppers also gains tackle upside from the injury. He's the only 1 among those 3 we'd target in IDP drafts right now.
The Giants have placed S Jabrill Peppers (back) on IR, ending his season. That likely locks in Julian Love as the starter in Peppers’ place the rest of the way. He played nearly every snap in the first game following Peppers’ injury
The Giants announced Monday that S Jabrill Peppers has a transverse process fracture. That likely means he'll miss at least Sunday's game against the Packers. This is the same injury that has cost Lions QB Matthew Stafford the past 3 games. But it's also an injury that cost Raiders QB Derek Carr just 1 game back in 2017. We'll see about the severity of Peppers' injury. You'll at least need a Week 13 replacement.
The Browns activated S Jabrill Peppers off the PUP list Monday after he passed his physical, according to Cleveland.com. Peppers missed the 1st 4 days of practice while dealing with a groin injury but should have plenty of time to settle back in as a starter. We'll see if Cleveland's usage of Peppers improves and helps him turn into a fantasy factor in his 2nd season.
Browns S Jabrill Peppers opened training camp on the PUP list because of a groin strain. it doesn't appear to be a serious injury, but Peppers might have to fend off Derrick Kindred for the strong safety spot. Missed time won't help that pursuit. We'll see how long he remains out.
