Giants WR Kenny Golladay shares crucial injury update after New York’s loss vs. Dolphins

New York Giants, Kenny Golladay

The New York Giants had a minor injury scare during their Week 13 road matchup against the Miami Dolphins.

Golladay was sidelined for multiple drives in the first half after suffering a rib injury. The Giants initially listed the wideout as questionable to return to the game.

The fifth-year wide receiver appeared to have suffered the injury over the late stages of the first quarter. He hauled in a 20-yard pass from quarterback Mike Glennon, as Dolphins linebacker Elandon Roberts then came in to punch the ball out of his hands over on the far right side of the field.

To the sigh of relief for the Giants coaching staff, Golladay made his return to action over the second half. Overall, he came away with three receptions for 37 receiving yards in the contest.

Following the game, Golladay provided a key update on his rib injury, where he noted that he should be “good” for now.

“I kind of came on the first catch a little bit, I kind of just felt like something popped,” Golladay said. “I don’t think it’s nothing too serious. Get treatment on it. I was able to come back out there. I want to be out there with the team all the time. I was able to go back out there. So, I mean, I think it will just be day to day.

“I got the x-ray. No cracked ribs or nothing like that, so we’re good.”

Injury issues have marred Golladay’s first season with the Giants. The Giants receiver missed three games earlier in the campaign due to a knee injury. He has also dealt with hip and hamstring injuries over the year, but he did not end up missing a single game due to either injury concern.

Golladay and the Giants sure will now look to turn the page following this defeat, as they now are set for a Week 14 road matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.
