NFC East Notes: Giants, Board, Thomas, Eagles, Jackson

There was a scary injury in the Giants game Sunday, as New York receiver C.J. Board went down with a neck injury that required him to be immobilized and carted off the field. Fortunately, it looks like the worst case scenario was avoided. The team announced that Board had been diagnosed with a neck sprain and concussion after being taken to a local hospital. Giants coach Joe Judge said after the game that the initial feedback he had gotten from doctors was “pretty positive.”

He also said Board was responsive and has movement in his extremities. A 2017 UDFA, Board is in his first season with the Giants. The Chattanooga product has seven catches for 66 yards on the year. Here’s to hoping he makes a swift and full recovery.

Now for more from the struggling NFC East:

  • The Giants didn’t start first-round rookie Andrew Thomas at left tackle on Sunday, but it wasn’t because of his performance even though he hasn’t been playing as well as the other first-round tackles. Thomas was benched for disciplinary reasons after breaking a team rule, Judge said after the game. Judge wouldn’t go into too many details, but he didn’t make it sound too serious. Thomas entered the game in the second quarter and while this doesn’t seem like a huge deal, it’s also not a great sign for the fourth overall pick’s development.
  • The Giants will play the Eagles on Thursday Night Football this week, and Philly is finally starting to get healthier. DeSean Jackson is expected to make his return from his hamstring injury for this Week 7 game, a source told Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (Twitter link). Jackson has missed the last three games as the Eagles’ offense has been besieged by injuries. Philly’s group of pass-catchers in particular have been banged up, and Jackson will return a much-needed vertical threat to the passing attack. Through two and a half games he had ten catches for 121 yards before going down.

Jaguars Promote WR C.J. Board

Board is back! The Jaguars announced today that they’ve promoted wideout C.J. Board from the practice squad. The team waived cornerback Tae Hayes to make room on the roster.

Board went undrafted out of Chattanooga back in 2017, and he’s bounced around the NFL since then, spending time with the Ravens, Titans, and Browns. He made his NFL debut earlier this season with the Jaguars, and he’s hauled in a single 23-yard catch in two games. He was on Jacksonville’s active roster for the first 12 weeks of the campaign.

The Jaguars may be in need of some receiver depth this weekend against the Raiders. DJ Chark is battling through an ankle injury, forcing him to miss practice all week. The receiver is considered doubtful for Sunday. Meanwhile, Dede Westbrook was limited at Wednesday’s practice thanks to a shoulder injury. If those two miss Sunday’s contest, that’d leave the Jaguars with only four healthy wideouts in Board, Chris Conley, Keelan Cole, and Michael Walker.

Hayes had a single appearance back in Week 9 vs. the Texans. The Appalachian State product had 11 tackles, four passes defended, and an interception during the preseason.

Browns Release Jeff Janis

The Browns did not deem former Packers wide receiver Jeff Janis as worthy of their 53-man roster. They released the fifth-year veteran on Friday, along with a host of other moves.

Janis was in the mix for one of Cleveland’s backup jobs but couldn’t impress enough to beat out some younger competitors. Known best for his heroics in a Packers-Cardinals divisional-round game, Janis will avoid outright waivers due to his vested-veteran status. The other players the Browns are parting with Friday will head to waivers.

Here’s the full list:

The Browns also waived three players with injury designations.
