Giants Not Activating Jonathan Stewart

Published

The New York Giants decided not to activate veteran running back Jonathan Stewart prior to the deadline to do so on Thursday.

Stewart, who landed on the IR due to a foot injury back in September, will now be unavailable for the rest of the season, per league rules regarding the injured reserve list.

While Stewart, 32, was brought in via a two-year deal, it is unlikely that the Giants bring him back in 2019.

Giants’ Eli Manning Says He is Not Rushing Into Retirement

New York Giants veteran quarterback Eli Manning is in no rush to call it quits.

The 38-year old signal caller has seen a decline in his play, and with rookie Daniel Jones waiting in the wings, it’s only a matter of time.

Still, Manning says he doesn’t feel 38.

“I’m not rushing into retirement, and Peyton’s not telling me to rush into it,” Manning said, according to NOLA.com’s Rod Walker.

“I still love being around the guys and the teammates and playing this game. I’m going to play it for as long as I think I can hang with these guys.”

And about that age.

“In the locker room, I feel their age,” Manning said. “At 8 o’clock at night, I don’t feel their age. I’m ready to go to bed and they are just getting started rocking and rolling. I can’t hang and do everything they can do off the field. But on the field, I still feel like I can still run with them and they keep me young.”

The New York Giants have signed veteran running back Rod Smith, who is set to backup Saquon Barkley.

Additionally, his 6’3, 235 pound frame will add some physicality to the Giants backfield rotation moving forward.
