| Peyton Hillis placed on IR, concussion|
Rashad Jennings to return in Week 11
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 15, 1:00 pm
|The Giants injured reserve list keeps getting longer. The latest is veteran running back Peyton Hillis, who suffered a concussion in the first half Sunday in Seattle. Hillis was "not good" and sent home from the Giants facility earlier in the week, according to coach Tom Coughlin. (NJ.com)|
FFToday's Take: Rashad Jennings will return to the lineup this week and be backed up by rookie Andre Williams. Hillis played a minimal role in the Giants offense, totaling 26 carries, 115 yards; 10 receptions 87 yards.

Limited in practice Thursday; recovering from sprained MCL

|Rashad Jennings was a surprise participant in practice Thursday, warming up with the team and then taking some scout team reps later on. The Giants officially listed him as limited.
"Itís getting close," Jennings said. "No setbacks. Felt like myself a little bit. Tomorrow I plan on doing the same thing, and just going from there."

FFToday's Take: HC Tom Coughlin said Jennings "did pretty well", but did not speculate about his status for Sunday. Despite the optimism, the Giants have been cautious all along with Jennings, so it would be a surprise to see him play this week. It seems much more likely the team would give their running back one more week to make sure he is 100 percent, making him a decent bet to be on the field in Week 11 against the Niners. Andre Williams and Peyton Hillis will likely split time in the interim.
| Rashad Jennings ruled out Week 9|
Will miss third straight week with knee sprain
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 30, 3:15 pm
|The New York Giants hoped starting RB Rashad Jennings would be able to return from his knee injury and play Monday night against the Colts. He will not.
Giants HC Tom Coughlin said Thursday that there was no chance Jennings would be able to play Monday, leaving the running game once again in the hands of rookie Andre Williams and fading veteran Peyton Hillis. Jennings will miss his third game in a row since spraining his knee in the Week 5 victory against the Falcons. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Williams will get another start against a Colts' middling defense (versus opposing fantasy running backs) that will be looking to rebound from giving up 51 points to the Steelers last weekend. The rookie contributes next to nothing in the passing game and hasn't been overly impressive as a runner thus far, meaning Indianapolis may be a sneaky defensive play against a Giants' offense without Victor Cruz.
