Performance Splits: 2020 to 2022
Career Stats by Season: 2021 to 2022
Pinnock (thumb) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Pinnock presumably hurt his thumb during this past Sunday's loss to Dallas, though he played all but one of New York's defensive snaps in that contest. He's also dealing with an ankle issue, but his ability to take the practice field Wednesday -- albeit in limited fashion -- suggests he has a good chance of suiting up this coming Sunday against Washington. Pinnock has been a near every-down presence in the Giants' secondary this season and has already compiled a career-high 55 tackles, including one sack, along with an interception that he returned for a touchdown.
Pinnock returned an interception for a 102-yard touchdown and added four solo tackles in Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Dolphins.
The Giants had another miserable offensive showing, and the team's only TD of the day came when Pinnock picked off Tua Tagovailoa in the end zone in the second quarter and took the ball 102 yards the other way. It was both the first touchdown and first interception of Pinnock's career. He's been an every-down player for New York this season, tallying 30 tackles in addition to the pick-six through five contests.
Pinnock tallied 13 tackles (10 solo), including three for loss, in Sunday's Week 2 win versus Arizona.
Pinnock was all over the field Sunday, leading New York in both tackles and tackles for loss. His strong game against the Cardinals followed a more modest performance Week 1, when he logged five tackles (three solo). Pinnock was thought to be competing for a starting role during training camp and has since run away with that honor, taking the field for all but one of the Giants' defensive snaps through the campaign's first two weeks.
Pinnock tallied two defensed passes, including an interception that he returned 17 yards, and one tackle (which went for a loss) in Friday's preseason loss to Detroit.
Pinnock is competing with Dane Belton for a starting safety role opposite Xavier McKinney. Pinnock made his presence felt from the outset of the exhibition opener, picking off Nate Sudfeld on the first snap of the contest and returning the ball 17 yards. On Detroit's next series, Pinnock tackled Jahmyr Gibbs for a three-yard loss and then broke up a pass on fourth-and-1 before calling it a night. The impressive preseason debut should help Pinnock make his case to start this season, though Belton also picked off a pass and played well Friday.
Pinnock played in 14 regular-season games in 2022, totaling 41 tackles (34 solo), 1.5 sacks, three defended passes, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
Pinnock moved from the Jets to the Giants in late August and began the season playing almost exclusively on special teams. He got an opportunity for an increased role when Xavier McKinney hurt his hand during the team's Week 9 bye, and Pinnock recorded 36 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three pass defenses over New York's subsequent seven games. Pinnock has two years remaining on his rookie contract, and his role next season could be substantially impacted by whether the Giants elect to bring back impending free agent Julian Love.
Pinnock (abdomen) was listed as a full participant on Tuesday's practice estimate, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Pinnock was carted off the field with an apparent abdominal injury during Sunday's wild-card matchup versus Minnesota, but he's since traveled back to New York with the team and has popped up on Tuesday's practice/injury report as a full go. The 23-year-old is currently in line to resume operating as the Giants' starting safety alongside Xavier McKinney in Saturday's divisional-round contest if Julian Love (hamstring) misses another game.
Pinnock (abdomen) was taken to a local hospital after exiting Sunday's wild-card win over the Vikings but will fly back to New York with the team, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Pinnock was carted off the field in the fourth quarter of Sunday's matchup, but it's encouraging that he'll be able to travel with the team after being examined at a local hospital. However, his status for the NFC divisional round against the Eagles isn't yet known.
Pinnock won't return to Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Vikings due to an abdominal injury, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Pinnock recorded a tackle on punt coverage in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game, but he had to be carted off after being injured on the play. It's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return for the NFC divisional round if the Giants advance.
