New York Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle may be kept out of the team's second preseason game Saturday against the Jacksonville Jaguars because of a knee injury, according to the New York Daily News. Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said Randle felt pain in his knee during the team's first preseason game Friday against the Cincinnati Bengals. "He struggled when we first got to the (Cincinnati) practices," Coughlin told ESPN on Saturday. "His patellar tendinitis had bothered him after a couple of days off his feet. He thought he could play. He did not warm up well, and we probably should have shut him down right away, but he played a few snaps. He definitely was not himself, and he was in pain." Randle is expected to be the No. 3 wide receiver this season behind Odell Beckham and Victor Cruz, the latter of whom is returning from a serious knee injury.

Randle had six catches on 13 targets for 158 yards during Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

An excellent game for Randle, though he was greatly overshadowed once again by rookie wideout Odell Beckham, who caught 12 passes on 21 targets for 185 yards and a touchdown. Randle posted back-to-back games with over 130 yards in Weeks 16 and 17, finishing the season with 71 catches on 127 targets for 938 yards and three touchdowns. Randle will likely return to the No. 3 wideout role next season when Victor Cruz returns from his knee injury, which means he likely won't get nearly as many targets as he did this season.

Randle caught all six of his targets Sunday against the Rams, finishing with 132 yards and a touchdown in New York's 37-27 victory.

Randle hadn't scored since Week 5 and had surpassed 75 receiving yards just once in that span. This was a pleasant surprise, but with Odell Beckham deservedly getting most of the targets among the Giants' receivers, games like these will continue to be an aberration for Randle.

Randle caught one of three targets for nine yards Sunday.

The Giants had hoped Randle would develop in his third year, but his role in the offense has diminished as the season's gone on.

Randle caught 3-of-4 targets for 52 yards in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville. He did not play in the first quarter due to a violation of team rules, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.

Randle was late to a meeting Friday, so he didn't see the field until the second quarter. Considering he missed some time, he performed well, finishing third on the Giants in receiving yards Sunday. We'd be surprised if the first-quarter benching amounted to much in the future, although coach Tom Coughlin has been known to be tough on certain players. In any event, Randle will have a favorable matchup next week against the defensively-challenged Titans.

Randle had seven catches on 15 targets for 112 yards Sunday against the 49ers.

Randle led the Giants in targets, receptions and receiving yards, though tight end Larry Donnell caught quarterback Eli Manning's lone touchdown pass. Randle has now been targeted 36 times in the last three games, though Sunday's output was his first with more than 50 yards. Fellow starting wideout Odell Beckham also drew double-digit targets, but Manning threw five interceptions in the game, which helped keep Randle out of the end zone. He'll look to score his first touchdown since Week 5 next Sunday night against the Cowboys.

Randle caught 5-of-10 targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 38-17 loss at Seattle.

Since Week 3, Randle has seen a healthy 69 targets, yet has made a disappointing 37 catches, and he's not making many big plays either, averaging just 9.5 YPC for the season, with only two receptions of 20+ yards. However, other than rookie Odell Beckham, the Giants don't have a lot of great options at wideout, so despite Randle's shortcomings and/or lack of production, he's likely to continue to see plenty of looks. Beckham is clearly becoming Eli Manning's go-to guy though, as he went over 100 yards receiving for the second straight game in Sunday's loss. Making matters worse for Randle is that he'll face a very tough 49ers' secondary in Week 11.

Randle caught 4-of-11 targets for 49 yards in Monday's 40-24 loss to the Colts.

Randle's most notable play was an ugly third-down drop that stalled the Giants' only scoring drive in the first half. While he should continue to see plenty of snaps and quite a few targets, Randle is seemingly destined to take a back seat to Odell Beckham for the rest of the season. Randle has four or more receptions in each of his last seven games, but with no 100-yard outings or multi-touchdown performances. He's on pace for a 76-740-4 receiving line

Randle grabbed six passes on nine targets for 74 yards in Sunday's loss at Dallas.

Randle didn't lead the Giants in receiving yardage, as TE Larry Donnell had 90 yards, but he once again had the most targets of any pass catcher on the team. Even before Victor Cruz's season-ending injury in Week 6, Randle had been seeing a big number of targets though, with 30 looks between Weeks 3-5. Meanwhile, rookie Odell Beckham had just four catches for 34 yards Sunday, but scored a pair of touchdowns. Randle should have an easier time after the Giants' bye next week, facing an average Colts' secondary in Week 9.
