Another injury-plagued campaign

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-14

Ojulari totaled 16 tackles (nine solo), including 2.5 sacks, over 11 contests during the 2023 season.

Separate hamstring and ankle injuries caused Ojulari to miss six games early in the season, and he's suited up in just 18 of a possible 34 regular-season contests over the past two campaigns. After logging a promising 8.0 sacks as a rookie in 2021, the Georgia product tallied a career-low 2.5 sacks in 2023, with two of those coming in the relatively meaningless regular-season finale against Philadelphia. Ojulari has shown considerable pass-rush talent when able to suit up, but his ability to stay healthy will be key as he looks to have a bounce-back year in the final season of his rookie contract in 2024.

The Giants designated Ojulari (ankle) for return from their injured reserve list Wednesday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

The Giants placed Ojulari (ankle) on injured reserve Saturday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Ojulari sustained an ankle injury in Week 5 against the Dolphins. He missed two games this season with a hamstring injury and will be forced to sit out for at least the next four games. Ojulari will be eligible to return against the Cowboys on Nov. 12.

Won't face Buffalo

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-13

Ojulari (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Ojulari will miss at least one contest due to the ankle injury he sustained last week against Miami. The 2021 second-round pick missed two games earlier this season due to a hamstring injury, so the Giants will have to hope his health issues don't represent a trend. Boogie Basham and Jihad Ward will stand to handle increased snaps until Ojulari can return to the field.

Suffers injury in loss

Ojulari suffered an ankle injury during the Giants' 31-16 loss to Miami on Sunday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Ojulari left Sunday's game without recording a single stat and was replaced by Jihad Ward. Ojulari has already missed two games this year with a hamstring injury, but New York will hope to have him back for next week's game against the Bills.

Returning Monday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-30

Ojulari (hamstring) has no injury designation ahead of Monday night's game against Seattle.

The 2021 second-round pick has been nursing a hamstring injury that held him out of the Giants' past two games, but it seems as if he's had time to move past the issue. Ojulari's return should definitely help a struggling New York pass rush, as the 23-year-old recorded 13.5 sacks over his first two years in the NFL.
