RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-12

McFadden played in 16 games during the 2023 season, recording 101 tackles (63 solo), including 1.0 sacks, along with an interception and four recovered fumbles.

McFadden grew into a larger role in his second NFL campaign, tallying nearly 300 more defensive snaps despite playing in one fewer contest. The 2022 fifth-round draft pick ranked third on the Giants in stops and tied for the team lead with 12 tackles for loss. McFadden's strong season solidified his place in New York's plans moving forward, and with two years remaining on his rookie contract, he's set to return as a key piece of the team's defensive unit next season.

Tallies six stops Week 9

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-06

McFadden recorded six tackles (three solo), including two for loss, in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

McFadden logged a season-high 80 percent of New York's defensive snaps and posted his highest tackle total since Week 6. The second-year linebacker has established a relatively reliable floor as an IDP, notching at least five stops in each of his eight games this year. McFadden has 54 tackles (31 solo) overall.

Part of two turnovers Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-16

McFadden registered seven tackles (three solo), an interception and a fumble recovery in a Week 6 loss to Buffalo on Sunday night.

McFadden finished second on the Giants in tackles behind Bobby Okereke, who racked up 11. The linebacker duo also combined for a pair of turnovers -- Okereke punched the ball away from Gabe Davis and into the arms of McFadden in the first quarter, then batted a Josh Allen pass that McFadden corralled for an interception in the second. McFadden played 79 percent of New York's defensive snaps in the contest after missing Week 5 versus Miami due to an ankle injury.

Will play Week 6

McFadden (ankle) is active against the Bills for Sunday Night Football.

McFadden has been dealing with an ankle injury that kept him out Week 5 versus Miami and led to him being deemed questionable entering this weekend. He was able to log a limited practice session Thursday and Friday, which was enough for him to suit up Sunday night. McFadden should reclaim his job as a starter, thus sending Isaiah Simmons back to a rotational role.

Questionable for Sunday's game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-13

McFadden (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at the Bills, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

McFadden managed limited practices Thursday and Friday after missing Wednesday's session, and he seems like he has coin-flip odds to play in Week 6. If he can't go, Isaiah Simmons would again be likely to see more work at linebacker Sunday.

Misses practice Wednesday

McFadden (ankle) did not participate at practice Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

McFadden presumably sustained an ankle injury at practice last week, and that issue sidelined him for Sunday's game at Miami. Now, he'll probably need to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday in order to have a chance at suiting up in Week 6 at the Bills.

Not playing Sunday

McFadden (ankle) is inactive Sunday against the Dolphins, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

McFadden suffered the injury during practice Thursday, but he was able to take the field for a limited session Friday. Ultimately, the second-year pro still isn't ready to compete and will have to remain on the sidelines for Week 5. In his absence, Carter Coughlin is expected to get the start.

Now questionable for Week 5

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-06

McFadden (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at the Dolphins, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

McFadden apparently sustained an ankle injury during practice at some point this week, and he's now in jeopardy of sitting out in Week 5. If he can't go, Isaiah Simmons would figure to benefit from an increased snap count.

Dealing with ankle injury

McFadden (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports reports.

It's presumably a new issue for McFadden, who was not listed on the Giants' injury report Wednesday. He'll probably need to manage a full practice Friday in order to avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.
