Ayers (ankle) returned to the field for the Giants' recent minicamp after missing most of OTAs, nj.comreports.

Ayers, who had been slowed by an ankle issue, is thus expected to be fine for training camp in late July. At that time, he'll compete for the starting job at defensive end for the Giants heading into the 2015 season after having recorded 22 tackles and five sacks in 12 games last year.

Ayers was forced to leave Wednesday OTA's due to an apparent leg injury, NJ.com reports.

The injury is presumably unrelated to the torn pectoral muscle that forced Ayers to miss the last four games of the 2014 season. The defensive end recorded 22 tackles and five sacks in 12 games last season and is a candidate to start at left defensive end for the Giants, assuming the injury he sustained Wednesday is not serious.

Ayers is out for the year with a torn pectoral muscle.

More bad news for a reeling team. Damontre Moore should see more snaps as a result.

Ayers will not return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars due to a pectoral injury.

Ayers had already been filling in for the inactive Mathias Kiwanuka (knee), so his absence will further hurt the Giants' defensive line depth. Look for Damontre Moore or Kerry Wynn to see increased snaps in his absence.

Ayers (neck) is listed as active for Sunday night's game against Philadelphia, the New York Daily News' Ralph Vacchiano reports.

Ayers, who did not practice on Friday due to neck spasms, will give it a go Sunday and thus factor in the Giants' pass-rushing/DE rotation.

Ayers, who woke up with neck spasms, did not practice on Friday.

He's questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Ayers (ankle) will do individual drills before determining whether he is healthy enough to begin practicing with the Giants, ESPN.com reports.

Ayers joined the Giants this offseason after posting 29 tackles and 5.5 sacks for the Broncos last season. With the departure of long-serving Giant Justin Tuck, Ayers is expected to provide similar pass rushing prowess while providing experienced depth along New York's defensive line. Once he's cleared to practice, Ayers should immediately factor into the Giants' defensive end rotation.

New Giants DE Robert Ayers blames his low sack total throughout his career on misuse.

Ayers notched just 12 sacks in five seasons with the Broncos after being the 18th overall pick in the 2009 draft. "I feel like I was out of position a lot of times but last year when Von [Miller] was suspended, they had to play me," Ayers said. "I was put in the situation and I was able to capitalize." He should get more opportunities to rush the passer in New York, but Ayers is primarily a run-stuffer.

Free agent DE Robert Ayers visited the Giants.

It's Ayers' first trip in over two weeks. He made a trip to Cincinnati shortly after the start of free agency. He'd be a situational pass rusher for a Giants team that's remaking its defensive line.
