Giants' Kenny Golladay (hamstring) reportedly avoided serious injury

New York Giants wide receiver Kenny Golladay's hamstring injury is not considered to be serious, reports Dan Duggan of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Gollday had to leave Tuesday's practice early after tweaking his hamstring. He is still undergoing testing, but it appears that Golladay should be fine by the start of the season. The 27-year-old wideout signed a four-year, $72 million deal with the Giants in March. He was limited to just five games last season due to injury, but averaged a career-high 10.6 yards per target.

Golladay is currently the WR25 in numberFire's preseason rankings and our models project him to lead the Giants in 2021 with 140.5 targets, 81.0 catches, 1,134.8 yards, and 6.10 touchdowns.

Kenny Golladay leaves Giants' training camp session early

New York Giants wide receiver Kenny Golladay left Tuesday's practice early with an apparent leg injury.

What It Means:

There was no official designation for the star wide receiver's injury, but it appeared to be a leg injury in the hamstring area. We'll see what the word is regarding his status, but it wasn't a good sign - Golladay played in just 5 games last season due to injuries. For now, expect Sterling Shepard to jump into the de-facto WR1 role at camp, and Kadarius Toney and John Ross could be in line for added work.

Our models currently project Golladay for 80.97 catches on 140.50 targets for 1,134.84 yards and 6.10 touchdowns.

Nagy: Bears' Tarik Cohen "weeks away" from PUP activation

Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen is not particularly close to being activated off the Physically Unable to Perform to list.

What It Means:

That's what head coach Matt Nagy told reporters, using the phrase "weeks away" to describe the running back's status. Cohen is coming off an ACL tear suffered in Week 3 of the 2020 season. His availability for the start of the regular season isn't guaranteed, so his status should be one to monitor over the next couple weeks. Damien Williams and Khalil Herbert should be in line for more work until Cohen returns.

Our models currently project Cohen for 177.62 yards on 40.78 carries with 1.13 touchdowns. They also earmark him for 42.21 catches on 59.05 targets for 297.06 yards and 2.03 scores.

Jets' Michael Carter reportedly impressing at Jets camp

New York Jets running back Michael Carter is standing out at training camp thus far, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Carter was just drafted out of North Carolina, but it seems as though he's already making an impression. "Carter is a step above the other three running backs (Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson, Lamical Perine)," Hughes wrote. It's still early, but Carter also seems to be getting the first-team reps at running back alongside rookie quarterback Zach Wilson. It's definitely something to monitor as camp progresses.

Our models currently project Carter for 594.93 yards on 138.39 carries with 3.45 touchdowns. They also earmark him for 35.19 catches on 47.12 targets for 243.29 yards and 1.66 scores.

Matthew Stafford (thumb) leaves Rams practice early, X-rays negative

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford's X-rays on his thumb came back negative, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Stafford exited Monday's practice early after hitting his throwing thumb on a player's helmet. The veteran quarterback underwent a minor operation on the same thumb earlier this offseason, but he's expected to return to action well before the Rams' Sunday night opener against the Chicago Bears.

Stafford is currently the QB11 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models expect him to average 268.6 passing yards per game with 33.76 touchdowns and 11.0 interceptions in 2021. Among the 44 quarterbacks with at least 100 drop backs last season, Stafford ranked 16th in Passing Net Expected Points per drop back.
