Darren Waller’s Giants debut is no longer guaranteed to happen Sunday night.
The tight end showed up on New York’s Friday injury report with a questionable designation due to a hamstring issue. He was listed as having been limited for practice.
Waller did not appear on the report prior to Friday, making his end-of-week addition a surprise and a concern, considering the timing. New York hosts the divisional-rival Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night to open the season.
Waller’s uncertain status could cost quarterback Daniel Jones a valuable target in New York’s offense, which will be leaning on a couple of new faces in offseason signing Parris Campbell and preseason standout Jalin Hyatt, whom New York selected with the 73rd overall pick in April. If they do not have Waller available Sunday night, the Giants will be forced to turn to second-year tight end Daniel Bellinger and Lawrence Cager.
