The Giants have two injuries of note to keep an eye on, both in the wide receiver ranks. Kenny Golladay (knee) finally has a chance to play and Richie James (concussion) might be back as well but may not be returning punts. Houston has been a top-5 defense against wideouts this year, so there’s not much here.
The Texans’ best offensive player this year — rookie running back Dameon Pierce — has been limited in practice with a chest/shoulder issue. He’s likely to play but, again, tread lightly. Houston’s already paltry passing game will be hindered by injuries to their top receivers: Brandin Cooks (wrist) and Nico Collins. The Giants have the fourth-best against wide receivers this year.
