Giants lose game, suffer several injuries

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants finished their preseason on Saturday night with a 32-24 loss to the New York Jets.

The Giants finish the preseason 1-2, and now turn their attention to constructing their initial 53-man roster. The deadline for NFL teams to do so is Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET.

The Giants fell behind, 14-0, on a 14-yard pass from rodgers to Garrett Wilson and a 67-yard Brandin Echols interception return of a Tommy Devito pass. A Jashaun Corbin 1-yard run and field goals of 57 and 40 yards by Graham Gano pulled the Giants within 14-13 at the half.

The Jets pulled away in the second half.

Injury news

The Giants suffered several injuries that could change the look of the team’s initial 53-man regular season roster.

  • Cornerback Zyon Gilbert suffered a hamstring injury in the first quarter and was ruled out.
  • Safety Bobby McCain suffered a concussion.
  • Undrafted free agent rookie Bryce Ford-Wheaton, bidding for a roster spot as a backup wide receiver and special teams player, was ruled out with a knee injury.
  • Reserve tight end Chris Myarick was ruled out in the first quarter with a hand injury.
  • Reserve offensive lineman Wyatt Davis was carted off in the second quarter.
  • Undrafted free agent cornerback Gemon Green left the game with a shoulder injury.
  • Safety Gervarrius Owens, a seventh-round draft pick, was ruled out with a hamstring injury.


  • Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers went 5 for 8 for 47 yards and threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Garrett Wilson during a brief first-quarter appearance. Rodgers played the Jets first two offensive series.
  • James Robinson led the Giants in rushing with 10 carries for 55 yards.
  • David Sills had six receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown.
  • Tommy DeVito played most of the game at quarterback for the Giants. He completed 19 of 29 for 210 yards with a touchdown and an interception, which was returned for a Jets touchdown.

Game highlights

Here are some of the game’s best plays:


This is certainly interesting.


What’s in a number?

Newly-acquired linebacker Isaiah Simmons was in uniform for the Giants on Saturday wearing No. 46. Simmons wore No. 9 with the Arizona Cardinals, the number currently worn by Giants’ placekicker Graham Gano. Gano surrendered the No. 5 jersey to Kayvon Thibodeaux a year ago. Would he surrender his number for a second straight season?

Surprisingly, Simmons started the game after just reporting to the team on Friday. He played a handful of snaps over the first couple of series, being used exclusively to rush the passer.
