A long trip to London for the New York Giants is just a few days away. The team enters Week 5 with a great 3-1 record to start the year. Going up against a 3-1 team in the Green Bay Packers, though, having key players on the injury report go on Sunday would undoubtedly help.

Encouraging update on New York Giants QB Daniel Jones:
Starting with quarterback Daniel Jones, he practiced as a limited participant in Wednesday’s work for the Giants. It is a step in the right direction for Jones coming off of the ankle injury he sustained in Sunday’s win.
Along with Jones, a few of the Giants’ other noteworthy limited participants were Leonard Williams (knee), Kadarius Toney (hamstring), Wan’Dale Robinson ((knee), and Evan Neal (neck). The Giants decimated wide receiver group has been discussed a ton throughout this young season so far. Hopefully, Toney and Robinson are able to make progress over the next few days. Williams has continued to make progress.
On the non-participant list for today, the Giants had many important players. Azeez Ojulari (calf), Julian Love (concussion), Richie James (ankle), Tyrod Taylor (concussion), and Kenny Golladay (knee) were all listed. Per Dan Duggan of The Athletic, there is reportedly hope that Love is good to go for Week 5. Along with Toney and Robinson at wide receiver, the progression of James is key for the offense.
This game with the Packers will be the Giants’ best test to date. Having a long road trip against a successful, winning football team will give the Giants an opportunity to keep taking important steps. Ultimately, to do so, it would be ideal to have as many players healthy as possible.
