Giants’ Golden Tate III placed in concussion protocol

Sunday, August 18th, 2019

New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate III has been placed in concussion protocol. Tate sustained the concussion Friday night in the Giants' 32-13 preseason victory over the Chicago Bears. It was not a great week for the 30-year-old Tate, who learned earlier in the week that his appeal of a four-game suspension to start the season was upheld by the NFL office.

Chicago Bears moving closer to picking a kicker?

Sunday, August 18th, 2019

The Chicago Bears' offseason search to find a new kicker might not yet be over, but it's coming into focus now. On Sunday, Bears head coach Matt Nagy said the Bears waived Elliott Fry, who was in a two-kicker battle with Eddy Piniero for the starting job. The Bears want to give him the chance to lock that up over the final two weeks of the preseason.

Giants may not have to worry about Eli getting hurt anymore

Saturday, August 17th, 2019

For the first time in about a decade, the New York Giants seemingly don't have to worry about Eli Manning getting hurt. In just two preseason games, first-round draft pick and heir apparent Daniel Jones has shown he can play in the NFL. Jones is 16 of 19 for 228 yards and two touchdowns.

Saquon Barkley expresses support for Jay-Z’s reported NFL team ownership interest

Saturday, August 17th, 2019

The New York Giants running back — who is represented by Jay-Z's entertainment and sports company, Roc Nation, for contracts and other football matters — was initially unaware of Hov's plans to have “significant ownership interest” in an NFL team “in the near future,” according to TMZ. But the former Penn State star and current Giants workhorse expressed nothing but excitement at the prospect of Jay-Z having a major stake in an NFL franchise. I mean, it's Jay-Z,” Barkley told Yahoo Sports on Friday night, following the Giants' 32-13 preseason win over the Chicago Bears at MetLife Stadium.

Manning and Jones throw TDs to lead Giants over Bears

Friday, August 16th, 2019

The 38-year-old, two-time Super Bowl MVP threw a touchdown pass in a flawless series and the New York Giants had their way with the Chicago Bears' backups in a 32-13 preseason victory on Friday night. Jones also threw a touchdown pass, but the sixth pick overall in the draft finally looked like a rookie, losing two fumbles. Manning's performance came days after co-owner John Mara said a perfect season would be Jones not taking a snap, which would mean Manning and the Giants were doing well.

Bears, Matt Nagy make statement by leaving G Kyle Long off trip to face NY Giants

Friday, August 16th, 2019

The reason behind guard Kyle Long not making the New York/Jersey trip with his teammates presumably traces to his confrontations with teammates during two practices over the past week, principally the ugly fight in which he was involved during practice Wednesday night. Whether the full and true details will surface is problematic, though, given coach Matt Nagy's declared approach of handling certain matters internally, seconded by GM Ryan Pace. "Really that's an internal matter for us and we'll keep that inside," Pace said during FOX-TV's "Bears Kickoff" pregame show.

With time running out, Bears still need answers in kicking battle

Friday, August 16th, 2019

With time expiring at the end of the first half of the Bears' preseason game against the New York Giants, Javon Wims hauled in an impressive 29-yard snag from Chase Daniel. It was the kind of play that'll help cement Wims' case to make the Bears' 53-man roster - and also the kind of play the Bears might not call in the regular season, given the pass was caught in bounds and Chase Daniel spiked the ball with just one second remaining. Consider it an important "test" play, though, for seeing how close Matt Nagy can cut it without any timeouts with the clock running at the end of a half.

Two homers carry Twins past Rangers

Friday, August 16th, 2019

Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run, go-ahead home run in the seventh inning, and Max Kepler also homered to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 4-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night in Arlington, Texas. Marwin Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with a run, and Ehire Adrianza had a single and a double for Minnesota, which increased its lead in the American League Central to 1 1/2 games over Cleveland. The Indians lost 3-2 to the New York Yankees earlier Friday night.

Giants rookie QB Daniel Jones throws it well again, though he also fumbles twice

Friday, August 16th, 2019

The good news for the New York Giants is quarterback Daniel Jones has thrown the ball very well in both preseason games. Unlike fellow top rookie pick Kyler Murray, who struggled Thursday for the Arizona Cardinals, Jones followed up his strong preseason debut with another mostly sharp performance. When Jones was with the starters Friday night against the Chicago Bears, he completed all four passes including a 40-yard strike to Cody Latimer.
