RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-22

McFadden made 10 tackles (nine solo), including four for loss, in a Week 3 loss to the 49ers on Thursday.

McFadden shined in the nationally televised game, leading New York in tackles and stopping a San Francisco ball carrier behind the line of scrimmage on four different occasions. The linebacker didn't appear to show any ill effects from a neck injury that troubled him early in the week. McFadden already has two double-digit tackles efforts through three weeks after failing to reach that mark in any of his 17 games as a rookie last season.

Ready for Week 3

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-21

McFadden (neck) is active Thursday night versus the 49ers.

McFadden had been dealing with a neck injury at practice this week, but he appears ready to go for the team's contest with San Francisco. Through two games, the linebacker has recorded 16 tackles while playing 75 percent of New York's defensive snaps.

Remains on injury report

McFadden (neck) is questionable for Thursday's game against the 49ers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

McFadden was listed as a limited participant on the team's first two injury reports of the week. The second-year pro played 75 percent of the team's defensive snaps in each of the first two games, so it's not clear when he may have picked up the injury. With Azeez Ojulari (hamstring) already ruled out for the game, if McFadden is unable to suit up, it'd certainly be a blow to the team's linebacker corps.

Leading tackler in bad loss

McFadden tallied 11 tackles (four solo), including one for loss, in Sunday's season-opening blowout defeat to the Cowboys.

The Giants offense looked completely lost throughout the contest, though New York had the time-of-possession edge due largely to a pair of Dallas defensive touchdowns. There wasn't much the team's defense could do to prevent a blowout, though McFadden was able to put together a strong individual stat line with a team-leading 11 stops. The second-year linebacker has earned a starting role this season after totaling 59 tackles (36 solo), two sacks and a forced fumble over 17 games as a rookie last year.

Still expected to start

McFadden is likely to begin the regular season as a starter despite the Giants' recent acquisition of Isaiah Simmons, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

McFadden appears to have the edge on the depth chart over Darrian Beavers, who missed all of his rookie campaign last year due to a torn ACL. The versatile Simmons was brought in through a trade with the Cardinals on Thursday and is slated to also play linebacker, but Duggan expects McFadden to remain the starter in the base defense while Simmons likely works in sub-packages. McFadden's role is far from written in stone, though, so he'll need to make a good impression in order to remain with the starting unit long-term.

Works up to big role as rookie

McFadden finished the regular season with 59 tackles (36 solo), including two sacks, and forced one fumble over 17 games in his rookie campaign.

While McFadden played in every game for the Giants this season, there was a three-game stretch between Weeks 5 and 7 during which he logged a combined four defensive snaps. However, the rookie out of Indiana subsequently displaced Tae Crowder as a starter and played at least 40 percent of New York's defensive snaps in every contest from Week 8 onward. McFadden tallied at least seven tackles in three of his final six contests to gain momentum heading into the playoffs, and he appears to have worked his way into the team's future plans with his solid campaign.
