Fells (ankle) was released from the hospital Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports 1 reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fells spent nearly three weeks in the hospital, having numerous surgeries to treat a MRSA infection, but the issue is now under control. Now that he's returned home, he'll be monitored by an in-home nurse, with the likelihood that his NFL career is over as a result.

Fells (ankle) is unlikely to play in the NFL again, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fells has already undergone five surgeries on his foot to fight an MRSA infection. He's been in the hospital since Oct. 2 and may need to stay a while longer. Fortunately, he's been doing much better the last few days, after his doctors found a combination of antibiotics that worked.

Fells will be placed on injured reserve after developing a staph infection on his chronically-injured ankle, NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fells recently underwent surgery to help correct his chronic condition, causing him to miss Week 4 and leave the Giants without one of their top tight ends moving forward. With Fells unavailable, starter Larry Donnell could see his role expanded, while Jerome Cunningham (knee) and Will Tye compete for backup snaps.

Fells, who underwent unexpected foot surgery this week, will likely be placed on IR, NFL.com's Ian Rapaport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fells did not travel with the Giants for their Week 4 contest against the Bills, and it appears he could be out for an extended period of time following the foot surgery. As the team's No. 2 tight end, Fells saw plenty of snaps this season when healthy as Larry Donnell's backup. Donnell will likely receive a more prominent role in Fells' absence, along with Jerome Cunningham (knee) and Will Tye providing additional depth.

Fells (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Fells didn't even travel with the team for this contest, so it's no surprise to see him sit this one out. With fellow tight end Jerome Cunningham (knee) also on the shelf, the Giants will likely lean heavily towards Larry Donnell when it comes to tight end targets. Will Tye, who was promoted from the practice squad Saturday, may also have a role.

Fells (ankle) did not travel with the team to Buffalo and is likely out for Sunday's game, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Fells likely inactive against the Bills, Larry Donnell could see a boost in targets in what should be a high-volume passing game for the Giants. With backup tight end Jerome Cunningham also unable to travel with the team, New York was forced to call up Will Tye from the practice squad, however it's unlikely he will cut into Donnell's opportunities come Sunday.

Fells (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Buffalo.

EDGE Analysis

In the two games he's played so far, Fells saw nearly as many snaps as Larry Donnell, who nonetheless remains the preferred fantasy option among Big Blue's tight ends. Neither player offers much season-long upside, but Donnell does get a temporary boost if Fells can't play Sunday, in what could be a heavy volume game for QB Eli Manning.

Fells (ankle) won't practice Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The report relays that coach Tom Coughlin sounded optimistic that the tight end will play Sunday against the Bills, though of course such an outcome presumably hinges on Fells practicing in some capacity Friday.

Fells did not practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Tom Coughlin made some remarks that seem optimistic about Fells playing Sunday against the Bills, but we'll see if he's able to practice Thursday or Friday. Through three games, Fells has a 6/60/0 line compared to Larry Donnell's 10/81/1 production.

Fells (foot) is active for Thursday's game against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Fells played 32 snaps to Larry Donnell's 44 in Week 1, then missed Week 2 against the Falcons. The snaps won't necessarily be divided the same way Thursday night, but Fells at least figures to have a role as the No. 2 tight end.
