New York Giants veteran wide receiver Cody Latimer has cleared the concussion protocol and should be good to go for the game this Sunday.
Despite numerous injury setbacks for Big Blue this weekend, the New York Giants will have one of their reserve receivers back.
Per the team’s Twitter account, veteran wide receiver Cody Latimer has cleared the concussion protocol. Latimer sustained the concussion in the midst of the team’s 28-14 Week 2 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He missed last week’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccanneers but should be ready to go for Week 4.
Saquon Barkley, Alec Ogletree, Tae Davis are Out for #WASvsNYG. Cody Latimer has cleared the concussion protocol.

Latimer should garner a decent amount of reps against the division rival-Washington Redskins this Sunday. Golden Tate is still serving his four-game suspension for PEDs and reserve wideout Russell Shepard has hit the injured reserve list with a foot sprain. Not to mention, Saquon Barkley is out, so the Giants may look to initiate more of a pass first-type offense.
Through two games (two starts) this year, Latimer’s caught six balls on 12 targets for 104 yards. His more productive game was against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1, where he racked up three receptions for 74 yards.
Latimer will line up alongside Sterling Shepard and Bennie Fowler III. Look for him to be a big target on numerous occasions in the passing game for quarterback Daniel Jones.
The Giants and Redskins will kick off at 1:00 p.m. this Sunday at MetLife Stadium. The Redskins (0-3) are coming off a 31-15 loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday night.
