When Xavier McKinney thinks back to when he fractured his foot during training camp, the Giants rookie safety recalls how everything seemed to The Alabama product admitted that it was tough to come to terms with beginning his rookie season on IR . But he said the coaching staff kept him busy

Rookie safety Xavier McKinney remains out of sight after undergoing surgery in late August to repair the broken fifth metatarsal in his foot. As with all players on IR , the Giants can slowly bring back McKinney , with a 21-day window from his return to practice before needing to activate him or shut

McKinney suffered a broken foot in August, and the Giants ended Logan Ryan‘s lengthy free-agency stay soon after. Both should be in uniform Sunday. The Giants also activated linebacker Tae Crowder from IR.

The Giants have McKinney lined up as a presumptive long-term replacement for Landon Collins, another second-round pick out of Alabama. Ryan is on a one-year contract, and Jabrill Peppers is signed through 2021 on a guaranteed-for-injury-only fifth-year option. Saturday’s move could allow Ryan to play more at cornerback, but McKinney will likely be eased into action.

  Dolphins waive former Pro Bowl RB Jordan Howard Howard gained just 33 yards on 28 attempts for an average of 1.2 yards in five games this season. It obviously wasn’t working out for Howard in South Beach. Given where we are in the season, veterans of Howard’s ilk are forced to go through waivers before potentially hitting free agency. However, there could be some interest in Howard’s services from contending teams.Despite some recent struggles, the former mid-round pick does have a track record of success. Howard averaged north of 1,300 total yards at a clip of 4.6 yards per touch in his first three NFL seasons from 2016-18.

Indeed, Alabama safety Xavier McKinney was on the board. That was that. Just like that, after signing James Bradberry in free agency, the Giants have the makings of a legitimate secondary. McKinney figures to start quickly and perhaps immediately, teaming with Jabrill Peppers, who will be

Despite the Giants cutting 2019 first-round cornerback DeAndre Baker and doing little to address their edge-rushing need this offseason — a deficiency compounded by the team trading Markus Golden in October — Patrick Graham‘s defense has played well, all things considered. The Giants, who remain in playoff contention despite having the NFC’s second-worst record, rank 12th in points allowed this season.
