The New York Giants are taking on the New York Jets in Week 8 of the NFL season. The Giants are already without starting quarterback Daniel Jones, who is missing the game due to a neck injury. Starting tight end Darren Waller was active, but has already been ruled out for the remainder of the game with a hamstring injury. Daniel Bellinger should move up as the main tight end.

It was a slow day for Waller before being ruled out. He was targeted twice but only brought in one for four yards. Waller only played about a quarter, and the worry now becomes whether or not this injury will limit him going forward. Bellinger is a solid backup option, but the Giants’ injuries look too much to overcome. For the short term, the Giants are down 7-3 in the second quarter and will need a spark from someone to try and give them an edge over the tough Jets defense.
