Gary Brightwell: Giants open RB's practice window

The New York Giants are opening up RB Gary Brightwell's (hamstring) 21-day practice window, setting him up for a potential return from injured reserve.

Fantasy Impact

With just three weeks left in the regular season, if Brightwell can't return from the IR, he won't have to be shut down for the rest of the season. Brightwell has not played since Week 7, spending most of the season on IR. He has only carried the ball nine times and caught five passes, serving as a depth RB.

Gary Brightwell (hamstring) ruled out for Week 8

Giants RB Gary Brightwell (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for a Week 8 matchup with the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Brightwell did not log any practice time this week as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury. Fantasy managers should expect Matt Breida and Deon Jackson to serve as the backups to Saquon Barkley Sunday.

Gary Brightwell (ankle) questionable for Sunday

Gary Brightwell (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Brightwell is managing an ankle injury and is listed as questionable heading into the weekend. He doesn't get much work on this offense, so the only way he has any relevance for fantasy purposes in Week 6 is if he's active and Saquon Barkley (ankle) is inactive on Sunday night.
