Injury Jennings unlikely to play Monday night     -- Thu Sep 29 8:00 am --

Thumb injury
New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings is unlikely to play on Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings, according to multiple sources. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Coaches are still worried about Jennings' ability to catch the ball and pass protect with a cast on his thumb. Expect a committee approach with Orleans Darkwa being the lead back. Bobby Rainey and Paul Perkins could receive touches as well. Darkwa is a Flex option only against a difficult Vikings defense.
Injury Giants forced to look to Paul Perkins     -- Tue Sep 27 11:00 am --

Rookie RB "ready to step up"
Orleans Darkwa ran well against the Redskins, with 10 carries for 53 yards. Diminutive Bobby Rainey can duplicate some of Vereen’s skills as a pass-catcher — though he has had fumbling issues in his career — and rookie Paul Perkins, a fifth-round pick from UCLA, will have to be brought along. HC Ben McAdoo said, "Perkins is ready to step up." Asked how he will replace Vereen, McAdoo said "by committee." (New York Post)

FF Today's Take: With Shane Vereen down for most if not all of the season and Rashad Jennings dealing with a thumb injury, the Giants will likely activate Perkins in Week 4 and get him some touches. He's a RB4 with additional dynasty value.
Injury Shane Vereen out for the year, triceps injury     -- Mon Sep 26 1:15 pm --

Giants lose leading rusher

FF Today's Take: Rashad Jennings missed Week 3 with a thumb injury and now Vereen is lost for the season. Orleans Darkwa isn't the receiving threat Vereen is and the Giants expressed concerns of Jennings' ability to catch with a cast on his thumb so it remains to be seen how the backfield duties will be split moving forward. Bobby Rainey and Paul Perkins round out the depth chart.
