Ojulari (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the 49ers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Ojulari had little extra time to recover with the team on a short week, and he'll miss his second straight contest with the injury. His next opportunity to suit up will be Week 4 against the Seahawks.

Officially inactive Week 2

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Ojulari (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's Week 2 contest against the Cardinals.

This comes as no surprise, as Ojulari was limited at practice all week and went into Sunday with a doubtful tag. Jihad Ward should see more opportunities with Ojulari absent against Arizona.

Doubtful for Week 2

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-15

Ojulari (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game in Arizona, Art Stapleton of The Record Sports reports.

Ojulari played more than half of New York's defensive snaps in the 40-0 Week 1 loss to the Cowboys, but he registered only one tackle. If the starting linebacker sits as expected Sunday against the Cardinals, Jihad Ward would likely step into a larger role.

Now dealing with hamstring injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-13

Ojulari (hamstring) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game at the Cardinals, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

The severity of the issue is unclear, so it's not obvious whether there's any risk of Ojulari missing game action. If he does miss time, it could mean additional snaps for the veteran Jihad Ward.

Plays in one preseason game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-27

Ojulari saw action in one exhibition game for the Giants, playing 18 defensive snaps in Week 2 against the Panthers.

Ojulari's playing time was par for the course for Giants starters in the preseason, as the team elected to hold most of its key players out of the first and third exhibition contests. Ojulari was limited to seven games last season due to injuries, but he is healthy for the start of the coming campaign and is slated to be a key part of New York's pass rush.

Impresses when able to play

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-02-03

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

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-19

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

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-18

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.
