Rueben Randle says hamstring is 'fine'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Wide receiver Rueben Randle also injured his hamstring in the fourth quarter of the New York Giants' 30-27 comeback victory against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday night.

Even though Randle looked extremely frustrated on the sideline while out, the receiver said he was actually going to re-enter the game if the Giants hadn’t scored when they did with 21 seconds remaining on Larry Donnell's catch.

Eli Manning marched the team 82 yards in eight plays without Randle on the final drive. And he had Beckham only on the final four plays due to the hamstring injury.

Randle, who finished with five receptions for 42 yards, said there's no reason to be alarmed for his injury.

“It’s fine,” Randle said of his hamstring. “It’s not bad. Actually I was going to come back into the game until Larry scored that touchdown. Just going to take a couple of days and I will be fine.”

Fantasy Impact: 

It's hard to trust a player when it comes to an injury but Randle seems to think it won't be an issue. Odell Beckham also tweaked his hamstring in this game but did return to the game for the team's final drive. It's worth monitoring this week as the Giants were already without Victor Cruz. The team plays the Eagles on Monday night in Week 6 so it could be an issue for owners who are counting on Randle.
