New York Giants: Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney to play on Sunday

Despite earlier injury scares, the New York Giants won’t have to go into their season opener without their new additions at wide receiver. Both Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney have been on the injury report during the past week leading up to the game, and missed the preseason finale, but have finally been removed from that list with days left before the opener.

The Giants have a number of injury situations that will come down to late decisions from the coaching staff. While Golladay and Toney are confirmed as ready to play, the same isn’t true for Saquon Barkley and Adoree’ Jackson. Both players are listed as questionable, but it looks like Barkley has the better odds of playing as Joe Judge has already confirmed that it would take a setback for Barkley to not play on Sunday.

Evan Engram, on the other hand, is ruled out entirely with a calf injury. We’ll likely see more of Kyle Rudolph because of that, as the new veteran addition is returning to health just in time for week 1.

It remains to be seen how some players will perform coming back from injury, or what the exact role will be for the newcomers to the offense, but the the current outcome is far from the worst one possible for the Giants.

Even if both Engram and Jackson miss the season opener, having the new weapons such as Toney, Golliday, and Rudolph on the field consistently is a big step in justifying the high price the Giants spent this offseason to acquire them.
