Ojulari finished the 2022 regular season with 5.5 sacks among his 14 tackles across seven games. He added one defended pass and three forced fumbles.

Ojulari was limited by injuries throughout the campaign, the most serious of which was a calf issue that kept him out of nine of New York's first 11 contests. The second-year pro flashed his explosive skills upon his return, tallying 4.5 sacks in four games between Week 13 and Week 16. Ojulari has two years remaining on his rookie contract and will be a key piece of the Giants' defensive scheme next season. He could be due for a breakout campaign if he's able to stay healthy.

Ready to face Eagles

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-21

Ojulari (quadriceps) is active for Saturday's game against the Eagles, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Ojulari was listed as questionable ahead of the game, though he'll be ready to play after logging three limited practices throughout the week. He has battled a number of lower-body injuries throughout the year, but he managed 5.5 sacks across seven healthy games during the regular season.

Questionable for divisional round

Ojulari (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Eagles, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Ojulari was limited for the third consecutive practice Thursday due to a bruised quadriceps, which he sustained during Sunday's wild-card win over Minnesota. The 23-year-old did say Wednesday that his availability and effectiveness would largely come down to pain tolerance. While the significance of this injury is still unclear, the second-year edge defender did appear notably hampered by this issue during Thursday's sessions, per Leonard. Ojulari logged 5.5 sacks this regular season despite being limited to seven appearances due to separate calf and ankle injuries, which provides some confidence in his ability to play through this quad issue against Philadelphia.

Plans to play through pain

Ojulari (quadriceps) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, but he said he plans to play in Saturday's divisional-round matchup against Philadelphia, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Ojulari has been limited during back-to-back practices to begin prep but is expected to suit up Saturday, though his effectiveness will be based on pain tolerance. The second-year linebacker had a tough time staying on the field during the regular season, but he was effective when available, recording 5.5 sacks and three forced fumbles across seven appearances.

Slated for additional testing

Ojulari (quadriceps) will undergo testing Monday to determine the extent of his injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Ojulari was unavailable for the second half of Sunday's wild-card win over the Vikings due to his quadriceps injury, but he was walking without much of a limp after the game. Whether he'll be available for the NFC divisional round against the Eagles remains to be seen.

Won't return Sunday

Ojulari has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Vikings due to a quadriceps injury.

Ojulari recorded a solo tackle in the first half of Sunday's game, but he was ruled out at halftime. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available for the NFC divisional round if the Giants beat the Vikings.

Available for wild-card matchup

Ojulari doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Vikings, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Ojulari was sidelined for Week 18 due to an ankle injury, but he'll be back in action Sunday. Per Leonard, the Giants didn't list any players as out, doubtful or questionable, so they should be at full strength to start the playoffs. The second-year linebacker has 14 tackles, 5.5 sacks and three forced fumbles across seven appearances this season, so his presence should provide a solid boost to New York's pass rush.

No-go for Week 18

Ojulari (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Eagles, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Ojulari will miss his first contest since Week 12 as he tends to his injured ankle ahead of the Giants' regular-season finale Sunday. With the team set to play in the first round of the playoffs next weekend, the linebacker will look to take advantage of some added rest prior to the postseason. In Ojulari's absence, Oshane Ximines could be asked to step into a starting role at strongside linebacker Week 18.

Good to go Week 17

Ojulari (ankle) isn't on the Giants' list of inactives for Sunday's game against Indianapolis, per Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site.

Ojulari was limited during each of his three practice sessions this week due to an ankle injury he picked up against Minnesota on Christmas Eve, but the issue won't prevent him from suiting up Sunday. The second-year pro out of Georgia has been impactful since returning Week 13 from an eight-week layoff, notching 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles over four games.
