    The Giants have reportedly dealt their talented yet oft-injured wide receiver Kadarius Toney to the Chiefs in a deal that will net the franchise two draft picks. The Score reported that Kansas City are dealing a conditional third-round pick and a sixth-round pick for the second-year player. Toney is under contract through 2024 (with a team option for 2025), with his base salary under the deal topping out at $2.53million in 2024, making him a potential steal for the explosive Kansas City offense. The former Florida wideout has only shown a glimpse of his talent in the NFL, as he's struggled with various injury ailments and has played just two games this season. However, a mammoth 10-catch, 189-yard effort vs. the Cowboys last season showed how talented he is when he can stay on the field. Toney missed seven games last season and started just four. 
    SAN FRANCISCO — Giants left-hander Alex Wood won’t throw another pitch this season. After landing on the injured list at the start of this month with a shoulder impingement, Wood, 31, was never cleared to resume throwing. With less than three weeks left in the regular season after Sunday’s series finale against the Dodgers, Wood and the Giants decided to pull the plug. “We’re just in a place where it’s probably not in the cards,” manager Gabe Kapler said, “He hasn’t been cleared yet to resume throwing, so we’re going to shut him down for the rest of the season.” Wood, who declined reporters’ interview requests before Sunday’s game, had hoped to resume throwing this weekend, but he was never medically cleared. His last start came Aug. 31, allowing four runs over 4⅔ innings in a loss to Pittsburgh, before being placed on the IL on Sept. 3. With 16 games left this season and the Giants out of contention, there was no longer the time nor the necessity for Wood to return this season. Under contract for $12.5 million...
    Getty Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a significant injury in their season opening loss. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott had a nightmare-level season opener. The 29-year-old suffered a right thumb injury that is expected to keep him out for several weeks, and his Cowboys were rocked by the Buccaneers 19-3. The news got worse for Prescott after the game, with Todd Archer of ESPN reporting that Prescott is expected to undergo surgery on the thumb and miss 6-8 weeks. Citing multiple sources, Archer also reported that Prescott will need to meet with a hand specialist. Prescott suffered the injury when his hand collided with that of Shaq Barrett on his follow through after releasing the ball, and his thumb was bent back. That recovery timeline would keep Prescott out well beyond the Eagles first meeting with the Cowboys, which comes in just over a month on October 16. The two rivals were expected to battle for the NFC East title coming into the year, and the rivalry had been heating up lately. The Cowboys backup quarterback is Cooper...
    New York Giants rookie Kayvon Thibodeaux injured his right knee after a controversial cut-block by Cincinnati Bengals tight end Thaddeus Moss. The New York Giants suffered quite the scare during their Week 2 preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals. In the first half, rookie edge rusher and fifth-overall pick Kayvon Thibodeaux fell down to the turf clutching his right knee. He waved off the cart, walked over to the blue medical tent, and departed to the locker room while joking with teammates. The Giants quickly ruled Thibodeaux out for the remainder of the game with a knee injury. As for how the injury occurred, Thibodeaux was hit low in his right leg on a cut block by Bengals tight end Thaddeus Moss. You can take a look at the play at this link. Was the hit actually dirty?Was hit on Kayvon Thibodeaux by Thaddeus Moss a dirty play?The play is certainly up to interpretation, as you can tell by the differing opinions on social media.

    Getty A flock of Ram defenders tackle Devontae Booker of the Giants during their Sunday, October 17 game. The grades from the Los Angeles Rams and New York Giants contest were officially released by analytics site Pro Football Focus on the morning of Monday, October 18, and there was a surprise at the top of the ratings. The highest graded Ram was not Cooper Kupp following his 9 reception day for 130 yards and two touchdowns. Nor was it the defense’s top breakthrough performer from the 38-11 romp Taylor Rapp, as the safety snatched a career-high two interceptions at MetLife Stadium. Not even Matthew Stafford and his four touchdown passes cemented his case as the Rams’ highest graded performer by PFF. So who did the national analytics site reward as the top graded Ram? It’s considered a surprise, especially considering he began the year on injured reserve but provided an extra jolt to the pass rush: Ogbonnia “Ogbo” Okoronkwo.Behind ‘Ogbo’s’ Breakout AfternoonThe 26-year-old edge rusher was given a 91.6 grade by PFF. That put him ahead of Rapp...

    SAN FRANCISCO — The decision to send Kevin Gausman to the plate Friday night in a tie game with the bases loaded wasn’t something that came to manager Gabe Kapler in a flash of brilliance. Kapler had pondered the scenario for awhile, wondering which of his pitchers would be best suited being an emergency pinch-hitter if he was out of position players. And when Gausman delivered a sacrifice fly that scored Brandon Crawford ahead of a throw from right fielder Joc Pederson, the fruits of a research project paid off in a big way. Quality assurance coach Nick Ortiz was commissioned by Kapler “a couple of weeks back to spend some time thinking about that.” So Ortiz, Kapler said, talked to other coaches on the Giants’ staff and then relayed in the information to the manager. “He prepared a little document that talked about our pitchers’ hitting and bunting and ranking them and thinking about that,” Kapler said. When the pitcher’s spot came up in the ninth inning, Kapler said the decision was between Gausman...
    A first-place Giants club that often cites its depth as the primary reason behind its surprising success this season is on the verge of welcoming back another key hitter to the lineup. After missing more than two months with a shoulder injury, third baseman Evan Longoria is poised to rejoin the Giants near the beginning of the team’s nine-game homestand that begins Tuesday against Arizona. Longoria follows fellow infielders Tommy La Stella and Brandon Belt, who each returned to the Giants last week after lengthy injured list stints that required the club to rely on some of its less experienced players to carry the load. The prospect of what the Giants will look like with a full strength roster has been top of mind for manager Gabe Kapler, who has been thinking about potential lineup combinations and ways to keep his veteran hitters fresh since the July 30 acquisition of former Cubs slugger Kris Bryant. Bryant, who can play nearly every position on the diamond and has already appeared in center field for the Giants, provides the...
    If the best ability is availability, few players have provided more value to their teams over the last decade than Brandon Crawford. Since Crawford made his first Opening Day start in 2012, the Giants shortstop has played the fifth most games of any major leaguer and has cemented his legacy as one of the 10 most valuable position players in the franchise’s storied San Francisco era history. In the midst of the best season of his career, Crawford received the most frustrating news a player who prides himself on durability can hear. The Giants informed him Monday he’d need a stint on the 10-day injured list to heal from a mild left oblique strain. The news came on what was expected to be a positive day for San Francisco as the club welcomed right-hander Kevin Gausman back from the Family Medical Emergency list and All-Star Buster Posey back from a two-week stint on the injured list. “It’s frustrating from a lot of perspectives,” Crawford said in the dugout at Dodger Stadium. “I’ve felt so good recently,...
    Should the New York Giants claim MWC’s all-time sack leader? By: Alexander Wilson August 25, 2020 PrevPreviousNew York Giants injury roundup: Darius Slayton, Ryan Connelly, more ShareTweet0 SharesInjuries are unfortunately a significant part of the NFL, as Miami Dolphins pass rusher Curtis Weaver recently experienced. As a fifth-round rookie out of Boise State, Weaver was waived after suffering a severe injury. This opens up the opportunity for teams like the New York Giants to transition him directly to their injured reserve. The Dolphins have waived/injured DE Curtis Weaver, one of their fifth-round picks from the 2020 NFL Draft. He was the MWCs conference leader in all-time sacks at Boise State. — Field Yates (@FieldYates) August 24, 2020 Weaver is a high upside talent, considering he’s the MWC’s all-time sack leader. Teams are unfortunately disallowed from placing drafted-rookies on the injured reserve, and only if they clear the waiver wire are they able to do so. The Giants, who desperately need help rushing the passer, could add Weaver in hopes of...
    For most of his 10-year career in San Francisco, left-handed starter Madison Bumgarner was among the most durable pitchers in baseball. Even when the 31-year-old starter did miss time on the injured list, the issues he dealt with weren’t the types of problems that ail most pitchers. Fewer than three weeks into his five-year, $85 million contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Bumgarner is headed to the 10-day injured list with a mid-back strain. D’backs general manager Mike Hazen announced the roster move to the team’s beat reporters Monday. Bumgarner’s stint on the injured list comes a day after he lasted just two innings in a horrendous outing against the San Diego Padres in which he gave up four home runs, including two to third baseman Manny Machado. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo told reporters postgame that Bumgarner attempted to gut his way through the outing, but was obviously ineffective during his short time on the mound. Mike Hazen said he doesnt expect Bumgarner to be out very long. Said his scans were pretty good. Most likely to fill in are Taylor...
