Gray (calf) is active Sunday against the Patriots, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Gray was able to log back-to-back full practices after being designated to return from IR on Wednesday and was added to the 53-man roster Saturday. The rookie running back should operate as the team's No. 3 option at the position, behind starter Saquon Barkley and backup Matt Breida.

Returns from IR

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-25

The Giants activated Gray (calf) from injured reserve Saturday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

Gray was designated to return from IR on Wednesday and was able to log two consecutive full practice sessions to end the week. He's considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots and Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports that Gray is not expected to resume punt or kick return duties if he does suit up.

Questionable for Sunday

Gray (calf) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Patriots, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Gray has missed the Giants' last four games with a calf issue, but he was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday, and he's got a chance to return in Week 12. The rookie running back out of Oklahoma would need to be activated to New York's active roster in order to suit up Sunday.

Returning to practice

The Giants will designate Gray (calf) for return from their injured reserve list Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

The transaction will open a 21-day window during which the Giants can officially activate Gray before they'd have to shut him down for the rest of the year. Their injury reports this week will give an indication of whether he could suit up for Week 12.

Lands on IR

The Giants placed Gray (calf) on injured reserve Tuesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

In a corresponding move, the Giants signed Jashaun Corbin from the Panthers' practice squad. Gray sustained the calf injury Sunday against the Commanders and will be forced to miss at least the next four games. He's eligible to return against the Patriots on Nov. 26.

Questionable to return

Gray is considered questionable to return to Sunday's matchup with the Commanders due to a calf injury, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Gray failed to record an stats and muffed a punt prior to exiting the game. If he is unable to return, Gary Brightwell would be the No. 3 option in the backfield behind Saquon Barkley and Matt Breida, while also the top option to return kicks.

Carries once in Barkley's return

Gray played one snap on offense and gained two yards on his lone carry in Sunday's 14-9 loss to the Bills.

After gaining 26 yards on 13 touches (12 carries, one reception) in the Giants' loss to the Dolphins in Week 5, Gray unsurprisingly saw his playing time take a drastic hit while New York welcomed lead back Saquon Barkley (ankle) back from a three-game absence. The Giants didn't attempt to ease Barkley back in, as he took on a 79 percent snap share and 28 touches. With Barkley seemingly having come out of Sunday's game without any setbacks, he should serve as the Giants' bell cow moving forward, leaving few snaps available for the likes of Gray, Matt Breida and Gary Brightwell.

Gets first carries of NFL career

Gray rushed 12 times for 25 yards, added one catch on his only target for one yard and returned a kickoff for 20 yards in Sunday's Week 5 loss to Miami.

Gray was busy Sunday, though he was far from efficient. Coming into the contest, all of his NFL action had been on special teams, but the rookie saw a prominent role on offense against the Dolphins by leading New York in carries, logging three more than starter Matt Breida. Neither ball carrier was able to make much of an impact -- Breida gained 21 yards on his nine totes while Gray tallied 25 yards on 12 carries. The team's offensive line has struggled mightily this season, and the result has been a 1-4 start behind the league's lowest-scoring offense. While it was a positive for Gray that he finally got involved in the backfield Sunday, he'll likely return to a minimal role when Saquon Barkley (ankle) is able to return from a three-game absence, which could happen as soon as next Sunday against Buffalo.

Will retain punt return duties

Giants head coach Brian Daboll said Wednesday that Gray will resume working as the team's primary punt returner in Week 5 against Miami, Jordan Raanan of reports.

After Gray muffed a punt in the first quarter of Monday's loss to Seattle, New York turned to veteran cornerback Adoree' Jackson to work as the returner the rest of the way. Keeping Jackson in that role was likely off the table as a long-term solution given that he sprained his MCL while returning a punt last season and subsequently sat out seven games, and Daboll confirmed Wednesday that Gray won't be permanently demoted. The rookie running back has worked exclusively on special teams so far this season -- even with Saquon Barkley (ankle) missing the past two weeks, Gray has yet to log an offensive snap in the NFL.
