Two-time Tremendous Bowl MVP Eli Manning will take the snaps Sunday in Arizona and Geno Smith would be the No. 2 quarterback on the depth chart Giants interim coach Steve Spagnuolo mentioned Friday.
Which means rookie QB Davis Webb is third on the depth chart, and he will probably be on the skin wanting in as soon as once more after Spagnuolo confirmed Friday that Webb will probably be inactive Sunday. Webb obtained 12 repetitions complete this week in opposition to first-team protection items, and offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan mentioned Thursday that Webb did nicely studying the protection.
Webb might probably play within the season finale in opposition to Washington on Dec. 31 at MetLife Stadium. Manning has already gotten benched earlier this season by since-fired coach Ben McAdoo. With nothing to play for by Week 17, it could be a perfect time to offer Webb an opportunity.
“It’s going to remain the identical proper now except one thing modifications between now and Sunday. Geno (Smith) remains to be the second,” Spagnuolo mentioned Friday of the QB depth chart.
Along with Jason Pierre-Paul’s damage woes — he revealed Friday that he has a damaged finger on his proper hand — security Landon Collins (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s sport in opposition to Arizona. “He’s questionable proper now. I imply, he obtained somewhat bit of labor (Friday) and didn’t get a lot the opposite days, so we’ll must see after we get to Sunday,” Spagnuolo mentioned of Collins. Spagnuolo mentioned Collins is keen to play — “That’s a particular,” mentioned the coach — however it should rely upon how the protection feels Sunday.
Spagnuolo had nothing however excessive reward for Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald. “There’s admiration and appreciation. He’s been doing it at a excessive stage for a very long time. He’s a category man. I’m certain it raises the extent of that entire (Arizona) offense to have a man like that with all that have. He’s obtained the aggressive greatness, which all the good ones have. He’s a man we’ve obtained to be involved about, clearly,” mentioned Spagnuolo.
ROMEO IS READY
Defensive finish Romeo Okwara, who was activated earlier this week, is predicted to see taking part in time Sunday. Okwara sprained his knee earlier this yr and was positioned on injured reserve Oct. 18. “I feel he’ll be able to go. We’ve obtained to decide. We’ve obtained 5 defensive ends proper now. I don’t know what number of we’ll take for the sport,” mentioned Spagnuolo…Linebacker B.J. Goodson (ankle) and extensive receiver Tavarres King (concussion) are out for Sunday’s sport… Security Nat Berhe (hamstring) is questionable.
