The Giants listed wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hamstring) as “out of action” on Friday’s official injury report.
Head coach Brian Daboll held a walkthrough closed to the media. But the team still downgraded Toney from “limited” status on Thursday to “did not participate” on Friday’s injury report.
Toney also sat out Wednesday’s practice with “hamstring soreness,” according to Deball.
In both of his NFL seasons, the wide receiver struggled to stay on the field. A lack of training time and reliability meant Dabol only played him seven times in the first week. He rushed twice for 23 yards in their first win over Tennessee in the season opener.
Toney’s snap count increased to 28 in Week 2, but he finished the game with two interceptions for zero yards on three targets.
Wide receiver Kenny Golladay drew even more ire this week, becoming the scapegoat of Giants fans after a bench and two shots against the Carolina Panthers last Sunday.
But it’s likely that Golladay will play a much bigger role Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys than Toney — if Toney plays at all.
Darius Slayton could also see more playing time after being scratched in Week 1 and recording just four snaps in Week 2.
