Who got hurt on the NY Giants?

LANDOVER, Md. — New York Giants offensive lineman Nick Gates sustained a serious leg injury in the first quarter of Thursday night's game against hosting Washington and had to be carted off.

Kadarius Toney didn't show up in the box score for the New York Giants in Thursday night's loss to the Washington Football Team. While the three wide receivers drafted in front of Toney each made an impact in the first game of their rookie season, Toney has yet to record positive yards in his two career games. 

Per Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com, Toney came off the field in the third quarter Thursday night and had about a 10-second conversation with head coach Joe Judge before immediately storming off. Toney didn't reenter the game after that, sitting away from his teammates as New York committed plenty of errors in the fourth quarter of a 30-29 loss. 

Whatever Judge said to Toney, the Giants' first-round pick does not seem happy with his role -- posting an Instagram story venting his frustration with the situation after the game. 

Toney played just 19 snaps in Washington and wasn't targeted. He had two targets in a Week 1 loss to the Denver Broncos, but both plays went for negative yardage on end-arounds. Toney is buried on the depth chart, as the Giants haven't figured out a way to use him. It didn't help that Toney contracted COVID-19 early in training camp and didn't play in any preseason games due to a hamstring injury.

"I'd say in terms of significant, I look at that not so much as volume, but production," Judge said earlier this month when asked if Toney could have an "significant role" right away. "I'd say for a player who hasn't seen obviously preseason games or a lot of significant time volume wise on the field with the guys through preseason, he's been able to go out there and manage it and execute in practice what we've asked him to."

Toney took to Twitter on Friday afternoon to explain himself:

Y’all try to turn anything into something, SMH 🤦🏽‍♂️we good over here 💙

Toney said in his lone press conference this regular season that he's a "full believer" in what Judge has to say, but it didn't appear that way with his Instagram story Thursday night. Both parties appear to have some issues to work out over the coming days.

Location of Brian Laundrie, boyfriend of missing 22-year-old Gabby Petito, now unknown, family says

The Herald Bulletin 17 September, 2021 - 09:18pm

Brian Laundrie refused to talk to police about his girlfriend's disappearance.

The family of Brian Laundrie, the boyfriend of 22-year-old Gabby Petito, who went missing while the couple was on a cross-country trip, said Friday night his whereabouts are now unknown, too.

"Be advised that the whereabouts of Brian Laundrie are currently unknown," an attorney for the family said. "The FBI is currently at the Laundrie residence removing property to assist in locating Brian. As of now the FBI is now looking for both Gabby and Brian."

Laundrie has not been seen since Tuesday, according to police and the family's lawyer.

The development was the latest in a case that has grabbed national attention as the couple had been traveling across the country since June in her 2012 Ford Transit van and documenting the trip on social media. Laundrie returned home to North Port, Florida, on Sept. 1 without his girlfriend, according to police.

Petito was last seen on Aug. 24 leaving a hotel room in Utah. The next day, she spoke to her mother, Nichole Schmidt, telling her that their next stops would be at Grand Teton and Yellowstone, Schmidt told ABC News this week.

Schmidt received two text messages from her daughter's phone in the days after speaking to her, but it was unclear whether they were actually sent by Petito.

Laundrie has been named a person of interest in the case, but he has so far refused to speak to police.

The North Port Police Department said Friday afternoon it had entered the family's home, where Brian was believed to be staying, to speak with the family "at their request."

It was after that tweet that the family lawyer released the statement saying the location of Brian Laundrie was unknown.

People had gathered outside the Laundrie home throughout the day Friday, some with bullhorns, chanting "Where is Gabby?" and calling on Brian Laundrie or the family to talk to authorities. Those people were moved from the lawn to the sidewalk as they chanted toward the house.

Brian's sister, Cassandra Laundrie, spoke to ABC News on Thursday night, saying she had spoken to police about Petito's disappearance but was mostly learning details from the news.

"Obviously, me and my family want Gabbie to be found safe," she said. "She is like a sister and my children love her, and all I want is for her to come home safe and sound and this be just a big misunderstanding."

Earlier in the day, the Grand County Sheriff's Office in Moab, Utah, said Petito and Laundrie did not appear to be connected to the murders of two women at a campground in mid-August. The sheriff's office said on Thursday it had been in contact with Florida authorities about investigating a possible connection to the double murder.

The couple's white van had been pulled over after a witness called police about an altercation between the two at the Arches National Park. The couple admitted to arguing and that Petito had slapped Laundrie, according to the report. Both told police that Laundrie had not Petito.

There was "insufficient evidence existed to justify criminal charges," Moab Police Department Chief Bret Edge said in a statement Tuesday

Was Dexter Lawrence offside? - ProFootballTalk

NBC Sports 17 September, 2021 - 08:54am

Washington kicker Dustin Hopkins got a second chance to win the game on Thursday night after Giants defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence jumped offside on a 48-yard field goal attempt that went wide right. Should Hopkins have gotten that chance?

Although Lawrence clearly went before everyone else on the New York defensive line, one of the camera angles shown by Fox suggests that Lawrence’s sin was being too perfect with his timing. He seems to move as the ball moves. But because he moved before everyone else moved, he drew the attention of the officials, who dropped the flag.

It’s not all that rare. An edge rusher who gets too perfect of a jump gets flagged because it looked like he was offside, even if closer inspection shows that the ball was moving at the same time the defender entered the neutral zone.

We’re trying to get a sideline view of the play, and we’re otherwise trying to get further insight on why Lawrence was flagged. It could be that Lawrence’s jump was so perfect that it was too perfect.

-Every person that ever made a mistake in history

I know there’s still a lot of people who think this game is played with honesty, but let’s face it, this is a perfect example of how a referee can control the outcome of a game if they wanted to. And there are hundreds of different ways throughout the game on a smaller scale in which they can do it.

Yes. And you can tell Lawrence knew it himself because he paused his rush. The irony is that his rush ended up being less effective overall because of the pause.

So even if he wasn’t offsides, it sounds like luck is the only thing that would have kept him from being offsides since no one has superman-esq reaction skills. So barring him having super human powers, I’m at peace with the call.

Isn’t it an automatic foul in sprints if a runner leaves the block too soon after the gun fires to prevent anticipation? Feel like the argument of “too perfect” is a pretty weak one given that even sprints demand a reaction rather than anticipation.

yet another example of why Bill Belichick is right. You should be able to challenge anything. You still only get two so its not going to make the game take any longer.

Is Joe Judge about to go on another crying tour?

Didn’t look like it to me.

Was he offsides? I thought not. I also thought it was as bad a call of the invisible tackle on Mckissic. He was untouched and did not give himself up, but the replay booth saw it differently.

Garrett was flagged twice last week where he didnt incroach the neutral zone vs KC….happens all the time….refs are quick with both their flags and whistles…it stinks, but is a fact….oh well?

Every game every week has these calls. Nobodies perfect even the refs. Get over it and score some more points, then you ‘ll win every time

If Dexter Lawrence was that good at timing his jump he would be playing defense and racking up sacks rather then playing special teams. He was offsides.

The reality is the Giants should have won the game. They are clearly the better team and the Washington Football team should thank their lucky stars they won the game.

Yada, yada, yada, you think that was the only blown/bad call in the game? I kinda question the roughing the passer on Chase Young…and then go back and look at the TD to McClaurin, Bradbury clearly tackles him in the end zone while pulling him down by the face mask, and then the personal foul on Cosmi for unnecessary roughness…

BB may be right but it would not matter here. No challenges in the last 2:00 minutes.

The McKissic play is the one which was the head scratcher. Clearly untouched when he stumbled to the ground and when he got back up to crawl for another 4 or 5 yards (and a first down). The refs stopped the game but didn’t overturn the bad call. Why?

Also is there a problem with the turf at FedEx? Humphries slipped on a play shortly before McKissic. Not sure if it played any role in Gates’ injury.

I agree, but enforcing a play like this would be tricky. Do they credit a sack for the defense with the “too perfect” jump or replay the down? The defense gets the screw job either way as they lost a fair play.

If offenses were allowed to challenge missed calls, it would potentially stop some of the whistle happy referees.

One of the poorest officiated games in a long time… gawd that crew was hard to tolerate.

The Giants had a lot of calls go their way last night

I’ve watched it. It was close, but he jumped forward a split second before the ball moved – maybe one or two tenths of a second, it was that close. As close as they line up, that’s into the neutral zone before the ball moves.

Also – and not for nothing – he knew it. He faltered – he knew he had jumped too early. He would not have done that if he himself didn’t think “Oooops.” To put it in legal parlance, he’s practically testifying against himself.

Wait, so you think this ref trying to fix the game would wait for the LAST possible play to change the outcome? What was he doing the previous 59 minutes watching over 120 plays and not calling any momentum-swinging penalties? Yikes.

It rubs salt on the wound . . .

I hate a lot of the penalties called againt D-lineman. Especially the neutral zone infraction where the d-lineman moves a little and then the offensive lineman jumps up and touches them and the defense is penalized.

But that’s what BB actually wants: 2 challenges (3 if you’re right on both) for the whole game – no automatic reviews on scoring/turnovers, and no booth reviews inside of 2 minutes.

No idea why the NFL doesn’t have laser sensors for first down/TD calls. Or have the ref command center override incorrect or non-calls. It’s ridiculous we have 50-60 something old refs spotting balls and what not by eye sight in a multi-billion dollar biz. Nonsense.

If you a need slow motion cam running at 1/100th of normal speed to make confirm 1 way or the other, then why have refs? Can’t blame the lost on the call for this. Loss came from the dropped touchdown, the poor decisions after the WFT inception. 2 up the middle runs and 3rd down pass, when WFT had the timeouts and 2 minute warning, took only 16 seconds off the clock was just poor football management.

If all potential touchdowns go to automatic replay, why not all potential scoring plays? It would be a rare occasion a field goal would go to replay and slow the game down. But with a game in the balance, need to get it right.

OK, let’s separately critique every made and missed call the ENTIRE GAME before saying the refs screwed the Giants. THere were multiple calls that went for and against both teams that could be questioned and that impacted the game.

I hate it when we scrutinize the last play in isolation and make some sort of grand conclusion based on who should have won. That’s not really how it works in real life. Little calls in the middle of the game can actually have equal or greater impact.

Subjective officiating not going away anytime soon. I doubt if the league and the union will ever go for sensors on the players and the football. The human element will always be with us.

Happens all the time. Check out the game of my raiders vs the ravens. On the game tying field goal to send it to OT. the RT #75 flinches and should be flagged for false start. 2 defenders on Baltimore start jumping up and down to tell the ref was standing right there that it was a false start. I’ve been watching sports for a LOONNGGG time, and I’d be a fool not too believe there’s not an outside Influence in most of these games.

It’s like when the pitcher crosses up the catcher in baseball. The umpire almost always calls it a ball, even if the pitch is in the strike zone, because it just looks bad.

I have only seen the one replay, but Lawrence seems to have timed the snap perfectly, his problem was his linemates were one second behind him, so it appears he was offsides. If a couple other guys move when he did, refs don’t throw the flag.

This happens to Myles Garrett once or twice a game.

The video shows him moving before the ball moved. Even arguendo you go after the snap not with it, moving “as the ball moves” is offsides just like starting a race as the gun fires is a false start.

As an official I don’t understand all of the mystery and angst about this type of call.

Players from an early age are coached repeatedly and often that if any part of your body is in the “neutral zone”, which is technically the length of the ball, you are offsides. I understand players trying to anticipate or getting a jump on the snap but jumping offsides or even worse lining up offsides (see Ford KC Chiefs playoff game) particularly in a late game changing situation is unforgivable and totally avoidable.

Coaches should be able to challenge anything on the field. Limit it to two but challenge whatever you want. Off sides can change a game completely as it did last night.

I believe a review of a player crossing the line before the ball is snapped or not would be easy to prove conclusive.

Giants fans say it was the Eagles’ fault for tanking last year.

I noticed the same thing in real-time. Don’t think he was offsides, he just jumped before everyone else did but not before the ball moved.

Was Dexter Lawrence offside? The official said he was and that’s all that matter’s, Ballgame over the Giants Lose theeeeeeeee Giants Looooooose………

There has been no attempt by the NFL to get every call right. They’ve had the technology for years to get all calls right, and not cause any delays. In fact, they could get all calls right and actually speed up the game, compared to the long delays they now have. They can referee the games from video monitors in the booth, and the refs in the booth can be in constant communication with the guys on the field. They can get the call right the first time, not take a guess, and then have a lengthy delay. You could actually referee a game from the moon and still get the calls right without delay. So instead of constantly discussing how to fix something, we should be asking why doesn’t the league want to get the calls right. That would be a much more interesting topic. You can’t possibly think the people running the league are so dumb that they haven’t been able to figure out how to get the calls right without delaying the game. Wow. If you believe that, I’ve got a nice bridge for sale.

The NFL will never admit this was a blown call, not in the first season it embraces gambling. It would raise too many uncomfortable issues, because the game was over with the missed FG. There are no what-ifs. How do you tell the Giants that the linesmen stole a game they won?

I thought he was good myself. Being right over the ball he was able to get a perfect jump. But in real time it looked like offsides to me to so I’m not gonna kill the refs. I do however want an explanation on the Washington running back not getting the first down when it was clear as day he was never touched and it was reviewed. It’s not college football, you’re not down if you slip and fall and your not touched.

That play may be the single worst call I have ever seen on a reviewed play.

More importantly, both those teams suck. It’s eagles and Dallas for the NFC east and after week 3 it could be just the Eagles. There is a really good chance the eagles are 3-0 and everyone else is 0-3 or 1-2. The NFC east could be over real early this season.

Honestly, I thought this last night and just figured it was the angle of the replay.

That’s why I love him so much 🥰🥰🥰
