Rashad Jennings RB NYG 2 Days

Jennings had 19 carries for 52 yards and eight receptions for 68 yards in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Cowboys.

The Giants' one rushing touchdown was scored from three yards out by Andre Williams, who carried 10 times for 35 yards, with one reception for 12 yards. Jennings' 10 targets were easily second on the team to Odell Beckham's 11, as no other player had more than four. Though he made some nice plays as a receiver, Jennings did drop a pass, and he was later tackled just shy of the first-down marker on a game-deciding 4th-and-2. He'll continue to cede some work to Williams, but as we've seen the past two weeks, Jennings is getting plenty of touches.

Jennings was not listed on Wednesday's early injury report.

Jennings' absence from the injury list confirms that he has fully recovered from the knee injury that cost him four games earlier this season. Jennings received 22 touches last week and should see another big workload in Week 12.

Jennings felt "solid" on Monday after logging 59 of the team's 70 offensive snaps in his first game back from a sprained MCL in his left knee, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Jennings should have a heavy workload against the Cowboys this week as long as the Giants don't get too far behind. The return of guard Geoff Schwartz should help the team's run blocking against an average Dallas rush defense.

Jennings (knee) had 18 carries for 59 rushing yards and four catches on seven targets for eight receiving yards Sunday against the 49ers.

Playing in his first game since suffering a sprained MCL back in Week 5 against the Falcons, Jennings dominated the backfield touches, ceding two carries for Andre Williams and one to fullback Henry Hynoski, who combined for six rushing yards. It wasn't a great game by any means, but it clearly shows that Jennings is the workhorse back in New York, a role he'll have once again in Week 12 against a Cowboys defense ranked 13th in rushing yards allowed per game this season.

Jennings (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, the Giants' official site reports.

Per the Star Ledger, Jennings has indicated that he feels capable of handling as many carries as the Giants need from him Sunday, though the report suggests that in his first game action since Oct. 5, the Giants may be inclined to have Jennings and Andre Williams share the workload to a certain extent, estimating a potential 60-40 split, tilting in Jennings' favor. That said, if Jennings gets off to a strong start and avoids any setbacks, it's not hard to imagine the balance leaning even more in his direction.

Jennings (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Justin Tasch of the New York Daily News reports.

Jennings will suit up Sunday as expected, but coach Tom Coughlin indicated Thursday that he does not intend to give the running back a full workload in his first game back. However, Andre Williams did not do enough during Jennings' absence to prove that he deserves a major chunk of the work now that Jennings is back, so we expect to eventually see Jennings as the lead back with Williams in a change-of-pace role. The 49ers rank fifth against the run, but they have given up some big performances to opposing backs (including Mark Ingram last week).

Jennings (knee) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports. When asked about Jennings' potential workload Sunday versus the 49ers, coach Tom Coughlin said, "I don't intend for him to carry a full load."

All signs point to Jennings taking the field in Week 11, but his rep count is the one unknown at the moment. Friday's injury report should confirm his availability for Sunday's game, during which he would face a San Francisco defense that has surrendered 4.2 YPC and three rushing touchdowns to running backs over the last four outings.

Jennings (knee) participated in Thursday's practice, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.

Jennings has yet to log time in the team portion of practice, but perhaps Thursday's iteration will include such a development. In any case, his progress so far this week points to active status Sunday versus the 49ers, which could very well be confirmed by week's end.

Jennings (knee) will be limited at Wednesday's practice, but head coach Tom Coughlin believes he is "ready to go" for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News reports.

Jennings will have to make it through practice this week before officially being declared ready to play, but Coughlin is planning on having Jennings available Sunday, and fantasy owners should do the same.

Jennings (knee) said Tuesday that he will take part in team drills this week, Newsday's Tom Rock reports.

Jennings was limited to scout team work last week, but he is confident that he will be able to take snaps during the first team during practice this week. Jennings' status for Week 11 will not be determined until later this week, but if he is able to get in the work he expects this week, he will have a good chance to suit up for the first time since Week 5.
