Unlikely to play this week
|Giants running back Rashad Jennings' sprained ankle had been making progress. So much so that he wasn't on the team's injury report at any point last week. He didn't practice on Wednesday and appears unlikely to play this week. (NJ.com)|
FF Today's Take: Look for Andre Williams to get the start this week. Williams is averaging 3.3 yards per carry and has a tough matchup against the Rams defense that has given the up the 7th-fewest fantasy points to running backs. He would be a volume-based, low-end RB2 in Week 16.

Status for final two games uncertain
|Giants running back Rashad Jennings injury-plagued season took another unfortunate turn, as he was forced to exit the game after just one carry after re-aggravating his ankle injury. (NJ.com)|
FF Today's Take: Jennings got the start but didn't last long. Andre Williams finished the game with 18 carries but only 44 yards. We'll see if the Giants decide to end the season for Jennings this week or try and get him active for the last two games.

Ankle injury, practiced Friday
|Rashad Jennings passes test to play. Giants expect to ease him into game & see how he holds up on 3rd dn. Could expand role if he does well. (Chris Mortensen)|
FF Today's Take: Not really want fantasy owners want to hear as it appears Jennings will be less than 100% but is expected to see action. If you have to choose between Andre Williams and Jennings, I'd lean toward the healthier of the two, Williams.

50-50 split with Williams if he plays
|Giants running back Rashad Jennings is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Tennessee with an ankle injury. Jennings practiced for the first time this week on Friday. He was a limited participant and looked somewhat hobbled by the sprained right ankle. It probably would be closer to a 50-50 split with rookie Andre Williams if he's able to play on Sunday. (NJ.com)|
FF Today's Take: Even if Jennings plays he's not going to be 100%. Fantasy owners with Williams on their roster would be best served if Jennings is made Inactive on Sunday. If Jennings does play it would be hard to trust either as a RB2 or FLEX.

|Running back Rashad Jennings (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday and his chances of being ready for Sunday in Tennessee don't appear promising. The Giants signed running back Chris Ogbonnaya on Tuesday to brace for his absence (NJ.com)|
FF Today's Take: Not good news for Jennings' owners. If Jennings does miss Week 14, Andre Williams would be the beneficiary of a juicy matchup against a Titans run defense that gives up the second-most fantasy points to running backs.

Former Panther joins G-men
|The Giants also signed running back Chris Ogbonnaya, who has played in 51 regular-season games for St. Louis, Houston, Cleveland and Carolina with 12 starts. Ogbonnaya played in five games for the Panthers earlier this season and ran for 50 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. He was released on Nov. 3. (Giants.com)|
FF Today's Take: Starting running back Rashad Jennings is nursing an ankle injury so this move may be insurance in case Jennings isn't ready to play on Sunday. If Jennings does sit, rookie Andre Williams would get the start in a plus matchup against the weak Titans run defense.
