The Giants have released LB Tae Davis from the roster in order to make room for Leonard Williams.

Davis was in the midst of the second year of his three-year contract, but was slowly seeing his snap count diminish over the duration of the season despite being a starter in Week 1 for the Giants. Davis was inactive for the Giants in four of the last five games.

The second-year man out of Chattanooga played in a total of 18 games for the Giants--starting five of them.

The Giants expected it, and the MRI results confirmed that LB Ryan Connelly, the team's fifth-round pick back in April, will be out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL. It's a shame for the Wisconsin product after the hot start he had, collecting two interceptions in back-to-back games and tallying a sack in his first start on Sunday. 

So the Giants are, once again, spread even more thin at the linebacker position. The reason Connelly got the start in the first place was due to Alec Ogletree (hamstring) and Tae Davis (concussion) having to be sidelined with their own injuries. David Mayo was also playing next to him. 

It's unknown if those two first-teamers will be back against the Vikings this week, but head coach Pat Shurmur sounded optimistic on Monday they are trending in the right direction.

There was fear on Sunday that Giants rookie LB Ryan Connelly had torn his ACL, and an MRI has confirmed those fears.

Connelly, who had been performing well this season, is now lost for the year. 

Heading into Week 4 against the Redskins, the Giants were already thin at the linebacker position. Alec Ogletree (hamstring strain) and Tae Davis (concussion) -- the team's first stringers -- were both out. But Connelly was ready for the opportunity to wear the defensive headset and get the start.

Giants look keep winning 00:01:40
SNY's Ralph Vacchiano analyzes the importance of the Giants winning this Sunday's game against the woeful Redskins

The Giants are already down the key piece in their offense in Saquon Barkley. Now two important parts to their defense will be out in Week 4 when they host the Washington Redskins. 

On the team's final injury report released prior to Sunday's kick, linebackers Alec Ogletree (hamstring) and Tae Davis (concussion) were listed as out. Neither practiced this week. 

In their place, expect to see more of rookie Ryan Connelly, who will call defensive plays, along with David Mayo and Nate Stupar.

It looks like the Giants will be getting WR Cody Latimer back after the latest injury report on Thursday. 

Latimer, who had been dealing with a concussion and was out Week 3, was a full practice participant and should be set to go on Sunday against the Redskins. That would be a big return to the receiving corps that should be full go once Golden Tate returns from his suspension next week. 

Also, OLB Lorenzo Carter was upgraded to a full practice participant after being limited with an elbow injury on Wednesday.

The Giants host the Redskins in Week 4 and are hoping rookie quarterback Daniel Jones repeats his magic once again. 

But there's a bit of a question mark surrounding the Redskins QB position. Starter Case Keenum (foot) is banged up, but things don't appear to be serious.

But if he can't go, it might actually be backup QB Colt McCoy, not rookie Dwayne Haskins, taking the snaps as QB2. McCoy returned from a leg injury he suffered last season.

No matter how the Giants arrived at Sunday's 32-31 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York desperately needed its first victory of the 2019 regular season.

The Giants got the elusive triumph, receiving help from the football gods -- as wide receiver Sterling Shepard said after the game -- in the final seconds when kicker Matt Gay's straightaway attempt on the 34-yard field goal went wide right as time expired.

But before the Giants poured onto the grass and started the postgame celebration at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, the defense nearly dropped the team to 0-3.
