DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Lions have reached a one-year deal with defensive lineman Mike Daniels, according to a person with knowledge of the agreement.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Packers receiver Davante Adams is questionable for Green Bay's season finale against the Detroit Lions because of a knee injury.
Adams missed the first two days of practice this week, though he did say that he was optimistic that would be able to play. Adams needs to two catches and 134 yards receiving to set single-season franchise marks in each category.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — There's been so much attention showered on halfback Saquon Barkley, it's easy to forget the New York Giants have been getting contributions from some other rookies.
Will Hernandez, the second-round pick, has started all 12 games at left guard and helped Barkley get within 46 yards of a 1,000-yard rushing season.
The guy who gets overlooked is defensive lineman B.J. Hill, the third-round pick out of North Carolina State who was the 69th player chosen in the draft.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have ruled wide receiver Marvin Jones out of Sunday's game against Carolina because of a knee injury.
It will be only the second missed game for Jones in the past three-plus seasons. Panthers receiver Torrey Smith will also miss the game with a knee injury.
Detroit tight end Michael Roberts (shoulder) and defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson (ankle) are also out. Defensive linemen Ziggy Ansah (shoulder) and Damon Harrison (shoulder) are questionable.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The NFL trading deadline passed and the New York Giants decided to stand pat despite speculation they would be wheeling and dealing with a second straight season going down the tubes.
Linebacker Olivier Vernon, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and safety Landon Collins will finish the season with the Giants, who are 1-7 for the second straight year and have virtually no chance of making the playoffs in Pat Shurmur's first season as coach.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Trading cornerback Eli Apple and 2016 All-Pro defensive tackle Damon Harrison in the last week wasn't the reason the New York Giants lost to the Washington Redskins.
The new-look defense, which was also missing injured linebacker Alex Ogletree, actually was the reason the Giants had a chance to win in the 20-13 loss Sunday that sent New York (1-7) to its fifth straight defeat.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The Washington Redskins could not have picked a better time to play the New York Giants.
The NFC East-leading Redskins (4-2) have won two straight, are coming off a big win over Dallas, and now face a team that's seen its management trade cornerback Eli Apple and defensive tackle Damon Harrison — two starters — for late-round draft picks in the week leading to Tuesday's NFL trading deadline.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Damon Harrison took the field Thursday for his new team, where he will be asked to help solve the defensive woes against the run for the Detroit Lions.
The trade for the defensive tackle was announced Thursday by the teams. Detroit will send a draft pick to the New York Giants.
Just as in New York, Harrison wore his No. 98 with the Lions on Thursday, practicing on the same field as he did during a joint Lions and Giants session in August.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Damon Harrison isn't a big fan of change, so it might be a little surprising the massive defensive tackle is enjoying playing in the New York Giants' new 3-4 scheme.
Harrison is having fun playing in the middle of the line flanked by second-year pro Dalvin Tomlinson and third-round draft pick B.J. Hill.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Pat Shurmur's first minicamp with the New York Giants nearly had an ugly ending when high-priced left tackle Nate Solder tweaked a knee after being bumped during a helmet-swinging scuffle between defensive tackle Damon Harrison and rookie guard Will Hernandez.
Solder, who signed a four-year, $62 million contract in March, walked away from the fight on the third and final day of the minicamp on Thursday and sat on the grass after Harrison and Hernandez were separated.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Odell Beckham Jr. has been cleared to practice although the star New York Giants' receiver did little work in team periods at the opening of the first mandatory minicamp under new coach Pat Shurmur.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants right guard D.J. Fluker is going to miss the Thanksgiving game against the Redskins in Washington.
The Giants also announced that tackle Justin Pugh (back) and middle linebacker B.J. Goodson (ankle) also will miss the game.
The injury to Fluker means the Giants will have to use their eighth offensive line combination in 11 games. It is expected that veteran John Greco or first-year player Jon Halapio will replace Fluker.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — For a change, the New York Giants weren't besieged by questions about quitting, lack of effort and the job future of second-year coach Ben McAdoo.
Winning has a way of changing things and the Giants (2-8) got the chance to briefly enjoy success in the wake of a 12-9 overtime win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A group of New York Giants football players who have protested during the national anthem have visited with Newark police officers and high school students.
Damon Harrison, Mark Herzlich and Adam Bisnowaty met with police officers and students on Monday to discuss systemic racism and make donations.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Dalvin Tomlinson probably won't have to wait long to make his first start for the New York Giants.
With fellow defensive tackle Jay Bromley suddenly nursing an injured left knee, the second-round draft pick out of Alabama likely will line up beside Damon Harrison in the season opener in Dallas on Sept. 9.
Tomlinson and Bromley were fighting for the starting spot when Bromley was hurt in Saturday night's preseason win over the Jets.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has every right to be optimistic about the upcoming season.
His unit carried the team to an 11-5 record and a playoff berth in Ben McAdoo's first season as head coach, and there is star power in the starting unit.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The battle to replace Johnathan Hankins at defensive right tackle for the New York Giants has come down to Jay Bromley and Dalvin Tomlinson.
Both have split the work with the first team in recent weeks in training camp and they both looked good in the preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday night.
NEW YORK GIANTS (11-6)
OPEN CAMP: July 28, Quest Diagnostics Training Center, East Rutherford, New Jersey.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have signed veteran defensive tackle Corbin Bryant and waived center Khaled Holmes.
The Giants announced the signing Thursday.
Bryant played in 56 regular-season games with 18 starts with the Buffalo Bills over the past four seasons. He played in eight games with six starts last season before being sidelined by a shoulder injury on Oct. 20.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — When the New York Giants signed Damon Harrison as a free agent in the offseason, they got more than one of the NFL's top defensive tackles.
The 343-pounder who is known to teammates as "Snacks" is somewhat of a character. He will hang around with the defensive backs as much as he does with the lineman.
That was the case Friday as the Giants (11-5) started wrapping up preparations for this weekend's wild-card game against the Packers (10-6) in Green Bay on Sunday.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Making the playoffs with a week to spare has given rookie coach Ben McAdoo and the New York Giants options heading into the regular-season finale against Washington Redskins.
The Giants (10-5) are locked into the No. 5 seed in the NFC. They are going to open the postseason on the road against the lowest-seeded division winner.
If McAdoo wants, he can either rest any of his nicked-up players or limit their playing time with a token appearance at Washington.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — When people start talking about the success of the New York Giants' defense, the names of Olivier Vernon, Janoris Jenkins, Damon Harrison, Jonathan Casillas and Landon Collins get mentioned frequently.
One name that rarely gets mentioned is Brad Wing, a guy who is never on the field with the defense.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Looking at the New York Giants' defensive effort against the Dallas Cowboys, any one of the 11 players on the field could have been singled out.
Defensive end Olivier Vernon was dominant up front. Tackle Damon Harrison plugged the middle. Cornerback Janoris Jenkins delivered another shutdown performance against Dez Bryant.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — There are a lot of reasons for the New York Giants' success on defense this season, and then there is Damon Harrison.
Affectionately called 'Snacks' by his teammates, Harrison isn't what one would consider a glamour player on coordinator Steve Spagnuolo's unit.
Other players are more noticeable. Second-year safety Landon Collins is having a career year with 87 tackles and five interceptions.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Coming into this season, the New York Giants have $30 million in cap space invested in their starting defensive line.
Based solely on sacks five games into the season, the return is going to be disastrous.
The Giants (2-3) have an NFL-low four sacks and only two have been by the linemen heading into Sunday's game at MetLife Stadium against the Baltimore Ravens (3-2).
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — When the New Orleans Saints are limited to 13 points, it's easy to point a finger at No. 9 and say it's Drew Brees' fault.
Well guess what? The 37-year-old quarterback wasn't all that bad Sunday in a 16-13 loss to the New York Giants.
Brees didn't throw any interceptions and the Saints didn't turn the ball over. The offense just could not get it going against a revamped Giants defense.
NEW YORK (AP) — At first glance, the new jersey just looks plain strange.
The different colors and team names probably even cause a few double-takes.
When NFL players switch from teams with which they had long been associated to new destinations, either through trades or free agency, it often takes a little getting used to for fans and sometimes the players themselves.
Some, however, completely embrace the wardrobe makeover.
