Being 6-2 at the bye week but banged up with injuries, the New York Giants are on a much-needed week off.

One of those particular players the Giants could use having available, at probably their weakest position, wide receiver is sixth-year veteran Kenny Golladay.

Especially following a trade deadline in which the Giants did not add to their wide receiver group, getting a healthy Golladay, while most of his tenure with the Giants has been a disappointment, could still possibly help.

When will New York Giants WR Kenny Golladay return?

Golladay has not played in the last four games with a knee injury. A recent update suggests that the Giants will be getting their big wide receiver back after the bye for Week 10. The chances are reportedly reasonable, and the Giants are optimistic that it could be the case.

As noted, Golladay’s year-and-a-half run with the Giants to this point is nothing but a letdown. That said, his availability and on-field presence could make a potential impact.

Through eight games, the Giants only have one wide receiver with over 200 yards, that being Darius Slayton with 232. Aside from Saquon Barkley’s 28 receptions, the Giants only have one receiver with 20 catches, Richie James. Lastly, their group of wide receivers has combined for just three receiving touchdowns.

Daniel Jones is doing a good job and making the most of what he has available. But he is only averaging 175 passing yards a game. For the Giants to get some sort of explosiveness added to the outside with Golladay, it could provide a boost to their offense.

In other news, the Giants could get Cor’Dale Flott (calf), Oshane Ximines (quad), Aaron Robinson (knee), and Rodarius Williams (knee) all available for their next game.
