Garcon hasn’t suffered any setbacks since returning in Week 11 and practiced fully on Saturday. From an IDP standpoint, Pierre-Paul’s back injury is concerning but Tom Coughlin seems confident that his defensive end will play. Garcon is 24th in our rankings for standard leagues and 29th in PPR formats, while Pierre-Paul is 8th in our rankings for defensive ends in Week 13.

Giant tight end Travis Beckum, who is also on the PUP list after suffering a torn ACL in the Super Bowl, is not ready to return to practice yet, according to the coach.

Giants TE Jake Ballard likely to miss 2012 season

Tuesday, June 12, 2012, 9:25am

Newark Star-Ledger - [Full Article]

In a move that pretty much makes official what was clear back in February when Jake Ballard tore his anterior cruciate ligament in Super Bowl XLVI, the Giants have waived Ballard with a failed-physical designation.
The transaction means Ballard is headed to the physically-unable-to-perform/reserve list once he likely clears waivers. The third-year tight end will likely eventually be placed on injured reserve, where he'd then remain for the entire season.

Fantasy Impact:

This was a procedural move so the Giants could free up a roster spot while keeping Ballard, assuming he clears waivers. With Ballard likely on the shelf for 2012, the TE looks in New York will be up for grabs between newly signed Martellus Bennett, Travis Beckum and Adrien Robinson.

Ralph Vacchiano, Twitter - [Full Article]

Giants TE Martellus Bennett is listed at 265 lbs but TE coach Mike Pope said, "He weighed in at 291. That's probably a little too big for his legs to carry."

Fantasy Impact:

With both Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum working their way back from knee injuries, Bennett has a great opportunity to prove himself as a starting NFL tight end, but this kind of weight gain is not a very good start.

The NY Daily News - [Full Article]

The Giants may not be banking on having TE Travis Beckum at the start of the 2012 season. But there's a pretty good chance that it might happen.

Beckum was at Sunday's Knicks-Heat game, and he told the Daily News that he's still hoping to return by the start of the season.

"If everything works out, yeah," he said. "I'm just working hard and getting it healthy."

Just two months after surgery, Beckum, who tore his ACL and meniscus in Super Bowl XLVI, is already moving around without a brace and feeling next to no pain. He had surgery on Feb. 28, then spent three weeks using a passive machine to regain his range of motion. He's already progressed to strength exercises, and there was no sign of crutches when he showed up at the Garden.

He said he hasn't run yet, mostly because there's no need to push it this early in the offseason.

There's also no need to rush back to health, and Beckum said that he understands that. The Giants acquired veteran tight end Martellus Bennett in free agency, and they picked up super-athlete Adrien Robinson in the draft, so Beckum knows he doesn't need to rush back.

Fantasy Impact:

Jake Ballard will probably be out a while, so the Giants will lean on Bennett and Robinson until Beckum gets back into the mix.
