Marshall said Saturday that he has no intention of retiring after the Giants placed him on injured reserve Tuesday after he required season-ending surgery to stabilize his left ankle, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. "I'm a competitor, and I don't want to go out like that," Marshall said. "I'm definitely not going out like that."

EDGE Analysis

Though he'll turn 34 years old in March and faces a lengthy rehab from the surgery, Marshall's comments suggest he's already preparing for a 13th NFL season. He'll enter the final year of his contract with the Giants in 2018 and may need to prove he's healthy in training camp in order to avoid being cut by the team leading up to the season.

Marshall (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

The roster move comes after Marshall underwent season-ending surgery Tuesday to stabilize his left ankle, which he injured in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. Along with Marshall, Odell Beckham (ankle) and Dwayne Harris (foot) suffered season-ending injures Sunday and were moved to IR, resulting in the Giants bringing aboard three relatively unproven receivers (Tavarres King, Travis Rudolph and Ed Eagan) to fill out their ranks. All three players should have a chance at staking claims to targets in the Week 6 matchup with the Broncos, especially if Sterling Shepard (ankle), the new top wideout on the depth chart, is unable to suit up.

The Giants confirmed that Marshall would undergo season-ending surgery Tuesday to stabilize his left ankle, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

The team had previously announced Monday that Marshall would require further testing on the left ankle injury he sustained in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, but the veteran wideout relayed later that day via his personal Instagram account that he would need surgery that would spell an end to his first campaign with the Giants. The Giants, who moved Odell Beckham (ankle) and Dwayne Harris (foot) to injured reserve Monday with both requiring surgeries of their own, are expected to do the same with Marshall later this week to create more roster flexibility. The team has already signed Tavarres King and Travis Rudolph to bolster their dwindling depth at receiver, and King in particular could play a prominent role for the Giants in their Week 6 matchup with the Broncos. Along with Sterling Shepard (ankle), who looks questionable for Sunday's game, and Roger Lewis, King is listed as a starter on the Giants' unofficial Week 6 depth chart, according to Stapleton.

Marshall announced via Instagram Monday evening that his set to undergo season ending surgery on his ankle.

EDGE Analysis

Marshall's announcement ends a nightmare weekend for the Giants that saw them lose three receivers for the remainder of the season. His short stint with the club was underwhelming to say the least, as the veteran pass-catcher recorded just 18 receptions for 154 yards and no touchdowns through five games. It will be interesting to see how the 34-year-old opts to go forward this offseason. Sterling Shepard (ankle) will presumably be the team's top wideout by default going forward, while Roger Lewis, Tavarres King, and Travis Rudolph should all see increased roles.

Marshall, who sprained his left ankle in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, will undergo further testing Monday before a timetable for his return is established.

EDGE Analysis

Marshall was one of four Giants wideouts who departed Sunday's game early with an injury, and his status appears to be the murkiest of the lot. The team announced that top wideout Odell Beckham (ankle) and slot man/kick returner Dwayne Harris (foot) will both require surgery that could end their seasons, while Sterling Shepard (ankle) was labeled day-to-day. The Giants are hopeful to have a better idea about the extent of Marshall's injury after the tests are conducted, leaving his status for the Week 6 matchup with the Broncos in limbo. If Marshall's ankle issue proves to be more of a short-term concern, he could see his role in the Giants' offense increase in subsequent weeks, as Beckham's expected absence would leave a lot of volume up for grabs in the team's passing attack. Beckham had been targeted on 36 of quarterback Eli Manning's 132 passes (27.2 percent) the last three games.

Marshall suffered an ankle sprain during Sunday's 27-22 defeat to the Chargers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Marshall was the first Giant wideout to leave the contest, but Sterling Shepard (ankle), Dwayne Harris (broken foot) and Odell Beckham followed him to the locker room as the minutes wound on. Among the group, Beckham appears to be in store for the longest absence, as he's already been recommended for surgery on a left leg injury. No matter the diagnoses of each in the coming days, the Giants appear to be in the market for help at the position in the short and long term.

Marshall (ankle) has been ruled out of Sunday's contest against the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

In the span of a few plays, the Giants lost Marshall and Sterling Shepard to left ankle injuries in the second quarter. Because Marshall was carted to the locker room, he seems to be in line for an absence of some type. However, examinations in the coming days will determine if he requires a respite next Sunday in Denver and beyond.

Marshall is questionable to return to Sunday's game versus the Chargers due to a left ankle injury, Bob Glauber of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

After jamming his foot at the end of an incomplete pass from Eli Manning, Marshall couldn't put much, if any, pressure on the region and required a cart to go to the locker room. Just a few plays before, Sterling Shepard also left the contest due to a left ankle concern, leaving the Giants with Odell Beckham, Roger Lewis and Dwayne Harris at wideout for the time being.

Marshall was carted to the locker room after injuring his lower left leg Sunday against the Chargers, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Marshall appeared to jam his foot at the conclusion of an Eli Manning incompletion. The injury has been variously referenced as a foot or ankle ailment, but the Giants will clarify on its nature in due time. With Sterling Shepard (ankle) also going down Sunday, Odell Beckham, Roger Lewis and Dwayne Harris will comprise the healthy bodies in the wide receiver corps moving forward.

Marshall (toe) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Despite being listed as limited at Wednesday's session, Marshall didn't appear to justify such a designation, per Tom Rock of Newsday. One day later, Marshall did just that, making it clear he's ready for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers.
