Jennings (knee) won't play Sunday against the Cowboys, Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News reports.
Coach Tom Coughlin indicated Wednesday that the Giants hope that Jennings will return to action after the team's Week 8 bye. With Jennings still out, Andre Williams is once again in line to head the Giants' rushing attack this weekend.

As expected, Jennings (knee) is out for Sunday night's game against Philadelphia, the Giants' official site reports.
Rookie Andre Williams will handle the load for the Giants in what should be a good matchup against the Eagles' lackluster run defense. Jennings' status for next week's game at Dallas remains uncertain, but with the Giants' Week 8 bye on the horizon, we may not see him on the field again until November.

Jennings (knee) rode a stationary bike during Wednesday's practice, but he was unable to run or even jog, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.
Jennings was knocked out this past Sunday with what was eventually deemed a sprained MCL in his left knee, which is expected to hold him out in Week 6 at Philadelphia. Although the Giants have yet to rule him out, owners should be resigned to the fact that he'll more than likely sit out. In his stead, rookie RB Andre Williams should handle the bulk of the workload.

Jennings is dealing with a sprained MCL, Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News reports.
While there's no timetable presented for Jennings' return, Vacchiano suggests that a good guess would be that the running back could be out through the Giants' Week 8 bye. While that estimate is speculative in nature, it seems a solid bet that Jennings will miss some time, starting with Sunday's game against the Eagles. In such a scenario, rookie Andre Williams would be in line to serve as the Giants' top running back.

Jennings, who will have an MRI on Monday, is initially being diagnosed with a sprained left knee, ESPN reports. "We'll find out more tomorrow," Jennings said. "We'll see what the MRI says. But I should be all right, that's how I feel."
Though Jennings was optimistic following the game, he was unable to rejoin Sunday's contest, after leaving at the beginning of the second half. If the veteran isn't ready for next week's game in Philadelphia, rookie Andre Williams will likely start and get most of the touches, as was the case in the second half Sunday afternoon. Peyton Hillis, the Giants' third-string running back, finished Sunday's game with just two carries and no receptions, compared to 20 and two for Williams.

Jennings had 13 carries for 55 yards and one reception for -3 yards in Thursday's 45-14 win over the Redskins.
After exploding for 176 yards and a touchdown on 34 carries last week, Jennings turned in a much more modest effort in a matchup that heavily favored the Giants' passing attack. He didn't really get involved in said passing game, as Eli Manning rarely needed to check down against a struggling Washington secondary. Though held to one reception for minus-three yards over the last two weeks, Jennings should be a decent source of caches this season, as he tallied eight through the first two games. Andre Williams got a season-high __ carries in the blowout, but Jennings remains the clear-cut top back for all situations. With the Giants offense suddenly looking good, Jennings' stock remains high, despite the poor fantasy showing.

Jennings was an absolute beast Sunday against the Texans, carrying 34 times for 176 yards and a touchdown in a 30-17 win.
Jennings more than made up for his contact-free fumble in Week 2 against the Cardinals, as he ceded just six carries to backup Andre Williams. Jennings now has two touchdowns in three games, though he heads into Week 4 with a very tough Thursday game against the Redskins, who held LeSean McCoy to 22 yards on 19 carries in Week 3.
