Friday PM Update: Bellinger heads into the weekend questionable for the game on Sunday night. He is still dealing with a rib injury, and we likely won’t know his status until an hour and a half before kickoff.
Giants' injury report for Sunday:— Dan Duggan (@DDuggan21) December 16, 2022
• Out: OL Josh Ezeudu (neck), OL Shane Lemieux (toe), CB Adoree' Jackson (knee).
• Questionable: WR Richie James (concussion), TE Daniel Bellinger (rib), DL Leonard Williams (neck), OLB Jihad Ward (concussion), CB Nick McCloud (illness).
Thursday update: Daniel Bellinger got in a second straight limited workout on Thursday at Giants practice. He’ll likely carry an injury designation into Sunday, but he is on track to play against the Commanders on Sunday Night Football.
We have made it to Week 15 of the NFL season. Due to some switching around of the schedule, this week’s new Sunday Night Football game will be a rematch of the New York Giants taking on the Washington Commanders. These teams tied in Week 13, so each will be looking for a leg up in the second game in this divisional series. On Wednesday’s injury report, tight end David Bellinger was listed as a limited participant dealing with a rib injury.
Fantasy football implications for Week 15
Bellinger has only played in nine games this season and has missed time with an eye injury. He has 24 receptions on 26 targets for 195 yards and two touchdowns. New York has struggled to find a reliable pass-catcher in the offense, but Bellinger has played well when given the opportunity. He was flirting with fantasy football relevance earlier in the year, but that has dissipated. Even if Bellinger is active, look for someone else to start in your Week 15 fantasy football lineups.
