2:18 PM ET
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New York Giants outside linebacker Olivier Vernon will miss his second straight game with a high ankle sprain. He was officially ruled out of Sunday night’s matchup with the Dallas Cowboys.
Cornerback Janoris Jenkins is expected to play. He left practice early Thursday to deal with a family matter, but was back with the team on Friday.
“Yeah, everything is good,” Jenkins said before adding, “Short-term memory. In life, things happen; just have to move forward and come back to work and pick up where I left off.”
Jason Garrett’s job security is just one of the storylines for a key NFC East matchup.
The Giants rookie remembers sharing a field with Elliott in the Big Ten. Now he looks to emulate his rival’s rookie season.
Winners for every matchup. Fantasy nuggets to get you through the weekend. And everything you need to catch up on Week 2. It’s all here.
