The Giants won’t be at full strength on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, but their most important player is on track to return.

Daniel Jones, who was knocked out of last Sunday’s game against the Cowboys in Dallas, was a full participant in practice on Friday.

He was off Friday’s injury report, which means he has cleared protocol and will be under center for Big Blue on Sunday.

While speaking about Jones, head coach Joe Judge was hopeful he would be back but wouldn’t commit until Jones clears the final hurdles.


The Giants will have Sterling Shepard back, and Darius Slayton, while still officially questionable, is expected to be back on Sunday, which will be huge for a wide receiver corps that will be without Kenny Golladay.

Shepard proclaimed himself ready on Thursday.


After being active last week but not playing, Andrew Thomas has not done much at practice this week.

Whether he plays or not remains to be seen, but his presence is badly needed on a line that is in flux.

Thomas is listed as questionable with a foot injury.


Saquon Barkley will not play in Sunday’s game, which was expected. Barkley left last week’s game in Dallas after rolling his ankle on a Cowboy’s foot.
