  • Giants' Lawrence Cager: Moves to IR

    The Giants placed Cager (groin) on injured reserve Saturday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Cager was expected to miss his second game in a row in Week 17 after being listed as doubtful, but it now seems as if New York has decided to shut down the fourth-year pro for the remainder of the season. Barring any signings or practice squad elevations, the Giants will go into their final two games with Darren Waller and Daniel Bellinger as the only two tight ends on their active roster.

  • Giants' Lawrence Cager: Doubtful for Sunday

    Cager (groin) is listed as doubtful ahead of Sunday's game against the Rams, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    After beginning the Giants' week of practice with an estimated DNP on Wednesday followed by a limited session Thursday, Cager is expected to miss his second consecutive game in Week 17. Darren Waller and Daniel Bellinger will likely be the only two active tight ends for New York on Sunday.

  • Giants' Lawrence Cager: Upgrades to limited

    Cager (groin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

    The 26-year-old tight end missed the Giants' Week 16 loss to the Eagles with this groin issue, and after beginning the team's week of practice with an estimated DNP, he was able to return to the field in a limited fashion Thursday. Unless Cager is able to practice in full Friday, he's expected to carry an injury designation into New York's Week 17 affair.

  • Giants' Lawrence Cager: Misses Wednesday's walkthrough

    Cager (groin) did not participate at the Giants' walkthrough practice Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Cager missed Monday's loss at Philadelphia due to a groin injury, and his availability for Week 17 now seems to be in jeopardy too. If he can't get back to practice Thursday or Friday, he'll likely be sidelined Sunday.

  • Giants' Lawrence Cager: Won't play Monday

    Cager (groin) is inactive for Monday's matchup against the Eagles, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Cager didn't practice Thursday or Friday but was given a questionable designation. The severity of the groin injury remains unclear, but the backup tight end will miss his first game since Week 8. Darren Waller and Daniel Bellinger are the only healthy tight ends on the Giants' active roster for Week 16.

  • Giants' Lawrence Cager: Could play Week 16

    Cager (groin) is listed as questionable ahead of Monday's game against the Eagles, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Cager seems to have suffered a groin injury at some point within the last week, but even after consecutive DNPs to open the Giants' week of practice, he's got a shot at suiting up in Week 16. If the 26-year-old were to miss Monday's affair, Daniel Bellinger and Darren Waller would likely stand as the only tight ends active for New York.

  • Giants' Lawrence Cager: Considered unavailable Friday

    Cager (groin) was considered a non-participant on the Giants' estimated injury report Friday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Cager did not practice Thursday, and he remained on the sidelines Friday. He'll look to participate in some capacity during Saturday's session. If he can't suit up versus the Eagles on Monday night, his absence wouldn't carry much of an offensive impact.

  • Giants' Lawrence Cager: Shows up on injury report

    Cager (groin) did not practice Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Cager likely picked up the injury in the team's Week 15 loss to the Saints, although that hasn't been confirmed. The 26-year-old will still have Friday and Saturday to get back on the practice field with the Giants not playing until Monday against the Eagles.

  • Giants' Lawrence Cager: No targets for third straight game

    Cager went without a target while playing nine of 56 snaps on offense Monday in the Giants' 24-22 win over the Packers.

    Since drawing a pair of targets in the Giants' blowout loss to the Cowboys in Week 10, Cager hasn't earned a look in the passing game in any of New York's ensuing three games. Cager should remain active on game days so long as Darren Waller (hamstring) remains on injured reserve, but look for fill-in starter Daniel Bellinger to continue to dominate the snaps at tight end.

  • Giants' Lawrence Cager: Hauls in first TD of season

    Cager caught one of two targets for a 10-yard touchdown in Sunday's 49-17 loss to the Cowboys.

    The 6-foot-5 tight end was also targeted in the end zone by undrafted rookie quarterback Tommy DeVito on an earlier play that fell incomplete, but the duo ended up connecting for the Giants' first points of the game midway through the third quarter. Cager hadn't even seen a target since Week 1, but with Darren Waller (hamstring) on injured reserve for at least three more games, both Cager and Daniel Bellinger figure to see increased looks -- and while the latter posted more yards Sunday, Cager's red-zone usage arguably makes him the more intriguing fantasy option.

  • Giants' Lawrence Cager: Signs to active roster

    The Giants signed Cager to their 53-man roster Saturday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

    Since Darren Waller (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, the 26-year-old Cager will take his spot on New York's active roster for the time being. Cager has appeared in five games for the Giants this year, recording 17 yards on two receptions.

  • Lawrence Cager: Signs with New York

    Cager signed with the Giants' practice squad Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    The move came a day after Cager was waived by New York to make room on the active roster for guard/tackle Justin Pugh. Cager has two catches for 17 yards on 24 offensive snaps this season.

  • Lawrence Cager: Cut by New York

    The Giants waived Cager on Wednesday, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

    In a corresponding move, the Giants signed guard/tackle Justin Pugh to the 53-man active roster. The tight end had played just 24 offensive snaps over five games with the Giants in 2023, recording two receptions for 17 yards.

  • Giants' Lawrence Cager: Sees little action on offense

    Cager played 16 total snaps -- 13 on special teams and three on offense -- in Sunday's 14-9 loss to the Bills.

    After he was a healthy inactive for the Week 2 win over the Cardinals, Cager has suited up in each of the Giants' last four games. However, he's seen most of his playing time on special teams and will continue to have a minimal role on offense while both of the Giants' top two tight ends -- Darren Waller and Daniel Bellinger -- are available.

  • Giants' Lawrence Cager: Not playing Week 2

    Cager (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against Arizona.

    Cager played 16 offensive snaps in a blowout loss Week 1 against Dallas and finished with two catches on two targets for 17 yards. However, he's being held out Week 2 in Arizona. Cager figures to see limited opportunities this season with Darren Waller and Daniel Bellinger ahead of him on the tight-end depth chart.
