  • Giants' Micah McFadden: Works up to big role as rookie

    McFadden finished the regular season with 59 tackles (36 solo), including two sacks, and forced one fumble over 17 games in his rookie campaign.

    While McFadden played in every game for the Giants this season, there was a three-game stretch between Weeks 5 and 7 during which he logged a combined four defensive snaps. However, the rookie out of Indiana subsequently displaced Tae Crowder as a starter and played at least 40 percent of New York's defensive snaps in every contest from Week 8 onward. McFadden tallied at least seven tackles in three of his final six contests to gain momentum heading into the playoffs, and he appears to have worked his way into the team's future plans with his solid campaign.

The rookie has now played at least 44 percent of defensive snaps in every game since the team's Week 9 bye. McFadden will look to build upon his 47 tackles this coming Sunday versus the Colts.

  • Giants' Micah McFadden: Practices fully Wednesday

    McFadden (neck) was a full participant at practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game at Washington, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

    McFadden was forced out of the Giants' loss versus Philadelphia in Week 14 early with a neck injury, but it now appears he should be good to go Sunday night. The rookie fifth-rounder should step back in as a starting linebacker next to Jaylon Smith in Week 15.

  • Giants' Micah McFadden: Questionable to return Sunday

    McFadden exited Sunday's game against the Eagles with a neck injury, Jordan Raanan of reports.

    McFadden logged five solo tackles before sustaining this injury against Philadelphia, and his return is now up in the air. With the starting inside linebacker sidelined for the time being, Tae Crowder and Cam Brown could be in line for increased usage Sunday.

  • Giants' Micah McFadden: Career day in tie

  • Giants' Micah McFadden: Gets chance to start

    McFadden will start Sunday's contest against Houston in place of Tae Crowder, Jordan Raanan of reports.

    Crowder is being benched, paving the way for McFadden to step into a starting role. The rookie fifth-round pick has totaled 14 tackles (10 solo) and one sack across 104 defensive snaps, but he'll likely have increased production as a starter.

  • Giants' Micah McFadden: Candidate for starting role

    McFadden could take over as a starter at inside linebacker in the wake of Blake Martinez's release, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

    Martinez was initially expected to play a three-down role for New York's defense this season, but the Giants will need to look for a replacement after they surprisingly released him Thursday. McFadden, who was a fifth-round pick in this year's draft, could slide in as a starter following a strong preseason. Even if he doesn't start, McFadden's role will almost certainly be boosted as a result of Martinez's departure.

McFadden lived in opposing backfields while with the Hoosiers, racking up 37 tackles for loss and 14.0 sacks in four seasons. He had double-digit tackles for loss in each of his final three seasons. McFadden did not test at the combine but ran a 4.62 in the 40 at his pro day at 234 pounds. He can get after the passer in Don Martindale's blitz-heavy scheme.
