S - NYG - IR
This Week Outlook
According to beat reporter Pat Leonard, the Giants have placed safety Jabrill Peppers on injured reserve with a ruptured ACL.
After dealing with an ankle injury early in the season and battling through it, the veteran safety ruptured his ACL during a play against the Panthers. The already terrible Giants defense will now have to play without it's key safety. They take on the Chiefs this week and what should be a bad matchup yet again.
New York Giants S Jabrill Peppers practiced on Thursday after missing Week 4 against the Rams with an ankle injury.
It seems unlikely that Peppers will return this Sunday versus the Cowboys, but HC Joe Judge is still holding out hope. The Giants D/ST should not be on any fantasy rosters at this time.
New York Giants safety Jabril Peppers left Sunday's game against San Francisco early with an ankle injury, but the early word is that Peppers suffered only a low ankle sprain and avoided serious injury.
Peppers limped off of the field Sunday, but he is believed to have suffered only a low-ankle sprain. It looked like bad news for the G-men, but the injury is not considered to be serious. He should be considered questionable for Week 4 against the Rams until we hear an update on his status sometime this week.
The New York Giants have exercised the fifth-year option on S Jabril Pepper’s rookie contract.
Peppers is now signed through the 2021 season. The former 2017 first-round pick out of Michigan spent two seasons in Cleveland before being traded to New York ahead of the 2019 season. For his career, he’s totaled 147 tackles, three INTs, and three forced fumbles. For those playing in IDP leagues, Peppers is ranked #12 amongst safeties in the FantasyPros consensus rankings.
Jabrill Peppers (back) won’t suit up for the Week 13 contest against Green Bay.
Peppers absence will be a blow for a Giants team looking for their third win this season. Michael Thomas would be the next man up for the Giants at SS. Look elsewhere for IDP help, possibly Derwin James from the Chargers.
