Giants Beckham to miss 3rd straight with quad injury
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will miss his third straight game with a quad injury.
The Giants announced on Friday that Beckham, linebacker Alex Ogletree, center Spencer Pulley and receiver Russell Shepard won't play Sunday when the Giants (5-9) face the Colts (8-6) in Indianapolis.
Defensive lineman Kerry Wynn is questionable with a thumb injury.
Giants cut backup QB Webb, vets Gay, Jerry
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — In a surprising move, the New York Giants released backup quarterback Davis Webb on Sunday.
That leaves inexperienced Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney behind Eli Manning who, of course, never has missed a game because of injury in his career.
New York also released vested veterans guard John Jerry and defensive back William Gay, and waived tight end Jerell Adams, wide receiver Hunter Sharp and defensive tackle Josh Banks.
Sturgis edges Aguayo to be Chargers’ kicker; C Pulley waived
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Caleb Sturgis has won the Los Angeles Chargers' kicker competition, beating out Roberto Aguayo in the final roster cuts.
The Chargers also waived former starting center Spencer Pulley on Saturday.
After employing four kickers last season, the Chargers are turning to Sturgis to solidify a tumultuous position. He was the Philadelphia Eagles' kicker to start last season before he injured his hip in September and went on injured reserve.
Continuity on O-line carries Chargers into playoff chase
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Philip Rivers knows what it is like playing behind a patchwork offensive line, something the Los Angeles Chargers quarterback has done all too often in recent seasons.
The Chargers are enjoying an unusual patch of good health up front this season, one of the main reasons they have won six of their past eight games to put themselves back in the playoff chase after an 0-4 start.
The Chargers practiced Tuesday without right guard D.J. Fluker, a veteran of three-plus NFL years who has played more than 3,000 offensive snaps across multiple positions in 43 regular-season and two postseason games.
The Chargers' starting offensive line has seen consistent reps together since May.
For an indefinite period, that group will be fractured.
Right guard D.J. Fluker was scheduled Monday for an MRI on a foot he injured during practice, a source said. How much time he'll miss is unclear for now. The 2013 first-round draft pick was seen on crutches, wearing a protective boot over his right foot.
The Chargers might need to go heavy up front on both sides of the ball, at least early in the regular season.
Joey Bosa reporting late – if he reports at all – will likely necessitate a seventh defensive lineman. And the emergence of undrafted rookie center Spencer Pulley, who has outshone third-round pick Max Tuerk to date, means he has to stay on the roster, lest another team steal him.
The Chargers will report to training camp July 29 and begin practice July 30. In the U-T's breakdown of positional units, today's group is the offensive line.
Seventeen blockers: LT King Dunlap, LG Orlando Franklin, C Matt Slauson, RG D.J. Fluker, RT Joe Barksdale, C Trevor Robinson, T-G Chris Hairston, T Tyreek Burwell, T-G Kenny Wiggins, C Max Tuerk, C-G Chris Watt, G Donavon Clark, T Brett Boyko, G Vic Teofilo, C-G Spencer Pulley, T Tyler Johnstone, T Mike...
