The Giants placed Cager (groin) on injured reserve Saturday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Cager was expected to miss his second game in a row in Week 17 after being listed as doubtful, but it now seems as if New York has decided to shut down the fourth-year pro for the remainder of the season. Barring any signings or practice squad elevations, the Giants will go into their final two games with Darren Waller and Daniel Bellinger as the only two tight ends on their active roster.

Doubtful for Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-29

Cager (groin) is listed as doubtful ahead of Sunday's game against the Rams, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

After beginning the Giants' week of practice with an estimated DNP on Wednesday followed by a limited session Thursday, Cager is expected to miss his second consecutive game in Week 17. Darren Waller and Daniel Bellinger will likely be the only two active tight ends for New York on Sunday.

Upgrades to limited

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-28

Cager (groin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

The 26-year-old tight end missed the Giants' Week 16 loss to the Eagles with this groin issue, and after beginning the team's week of practice with an estimated DNP, he was able to return to the field in a limited fashion Thursday. Unless Cager is able to practice in full Friday, he's expected to carry an injury designation into New York's Week 17 affair.

Misses Wednesday's walkthrough

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-27

Cager (groin) did not participate at the Giants' walkthrough practice Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Cager missed Monday's loss at Philadelphia due to a groin injury, and his availability for Week 17 now seems to be in jeopardy too. If he can't get back to practice Thursday or Friday, he'll likely be sidelined Sunday.

Won't play Monday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-25

Cager (groin) is inactive for Monday's matchup against the Eagles, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Cager didn't practice Thursday or Friday but was given a questionable designation. The severity of the groin injury remains unclear, but the backup tight end will miss his first game since Week 8. Darren Waller and Daniel Bellinger are the only healthy tight ends on the Giants' active roster for Week 16.

Could play Week 16

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-23

Cager (groin) is listed as questionable ahead of Monday's game against the Eagles, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Cager seems to have suffered a groin injury at some point within the last week, and even after consecutive DNPs to open the Giants' week of practice, he's got a shot at suiting up in Week 16. If the 26-year-old were to miss Monday's affair, Daniel Bellinger and Darren Waller would stand as the only tight ends active for New York.

Considered unavailable Friday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-22

Cager (groin) was considered a non-participant on the Giants' estimated injury report Friday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Cager did not practice Thursday and he remained on the sidelines again Friday and he'll look to participate in some capacity at Saturday's session. If he can't go versus the Eagles on Monday night, his absence wouldn't carry much of an offensive impact.

Shows up on injury report

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-21

Cager (groin) did not practice Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Cager likely picked up the injury in the team's Week 15 loss to the Saints, but that is not clear. The 26-year-old will still have Friday and Saturday to get back on the practice field with the Giants not playing until Monday against the Eagles.

No targets for third straight game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-13

Cager went without a target while playing nine of 56 snaps on offense Monday in the Giants' 24-22 win over the Packers.

Since drawing a pair of targets in the Giants' blowout loss to the Cowboys in Week 10, Cager hasn't earned a look in the passing game in any of New York's ensuing three games. Cager should remain active on game days so long as Darren Waller (hamstring) remains on injured reserve, but look for fill-in starter Daniel Bellinger to continue to dominate the snaps at tight end.
