Giants' Nick McCloud: Steps in with eight stops Week 17
McCloud recorded eight tackles (six solo) and forced a fumble in Sunday's loss to the Rams.
McCloud got the start at cornerback in place of Deonte Banks (shoulder), and he finished with his highest tackle total of the campaign. McCloud has logged more snaps on special teams than on defense this season, but he could start against the Eagles in the Giants' regular-season finale next weekend if Banks is unable to suit up again....

Giants' Nick McCloud: Avoids injury report
McCloud (groin) wasn't listed on the Giants' injury report Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Giants' Nick McCloud: Still recovering from injury
McCloud (groin) should be ready Week 1 against the Cowboys, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Giants' Nick McCloud: Picks up 1.5 sacks in Week 18 loss
McCloud totaled five tackles (two solo), including 1.5 sacks, in the Giants' loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.
McCloud was one of the more prominent Giants to play in the contest with the team resting most of its starters. The second-year cornerback showed well in the loss, as he notched his most tackles since Week 13. McCloud also earned the first sacks of his career, combining with Jarrad Davis to take down Jalen Hurts in the first quarter and adding a solo sack in the following period. Adoree' Jackson (knee) appears to be on the brink of a return, and if he's able to play in Sunday's wild-card game against the Vikings, McCloud's role would presumably shrink.... See More ...

Giants' Nick McCloud: Set to play Sunday
McCloud (illness) has been ruled active for Sunday's game against the Commanders.
McCloud was in and out of practice Week 15 while dealing with an illness. Nevertheless, he'll still suit up for this important divisional matchup against Washington. With Adoree' Jackson (knee) and Rodarius Williams (coach's decision) both inactive, expect McCloud to continue playing an every-down role as one of four available cornerbacks for the Giants....

Giants' Nick McCloud: Deemed questionable for Sunday
McCloud (illness) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against Washington.
McCloud didn't practice Thursday and was limited Wednesday and Friday due to an illness, leaving his status for Week 15 in jeopardy. Adoree' Jackson (knee) has already been ruled out for a fourth straight game, so if McCloud is also sidelined, Cor'Dale Flott, Darnay Holmes and Rodarius Williams would all be candidates for increased roles opposite Fabian Moreau....

Giants' Nick McCloud: Tallies eight tackles Week 13
McCloud finished with eight tackles (six solo) and two defended passes Sunday in a 20-20 tie versus Washington.
McCloud got his second straight start in the absence of Adoree' Jackson (hand), and he again played on 100 percent of New York's defensive snaps. He made the most of the opportunity by tying a career high with eight tackles -- a mark he had established against Dallas one week earlier. Jackson will miss at least one more game (and quite possibly more), so McCloud's time as a starter hasn't yet come to an end.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Nick McCloud: Draws another start
McCloud is expected to start Sunday against the Commanders, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
McCloud should draw his second start in a row, while Adoree' Jackson (knee) remains out. The former will play opposite Fabian Moreau, while Zyon Gilbert plays nickel.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Nick McCloud: No injury designation for Week 5
McCloud doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's matchup against the Packers in London.
McCloud missed three straight games after suffering a hamstring injury during the season opener, but he's in line to return in Week 5 after logging a full practice Friday. The second-year cornerback played exclusively on special teams during Week 1 before suffering the injury, so he'll likely garner a similar role against Green Bay.... See More ... See Less
