  • Giants' Xavier McKinney: Secures seven stops Sunday

    McKinney logged seven tackles (six solo) and a defensed pass Sunday in a Week 2 win over Arizona.

    McKinney ranked third on the Giants in stops Sunday, though he also missed on multiple tackle attempts. The fourth-year safety has yet to sit out a defensive snap this season, and he's totaled 11 tackles (seven solo) and three pass defenses through two contests.

  • Giants' Xavier McKinney: Logs four tackles in loss

    McKinney recorded four tackles (one solo) and two passes defended in Sunday's 40-0 loss to the Cowboys.

    McKinney was on the field for all 55 defensive plays for the Giants, as well as seven special teams snaps (29 percent). It was a rough outing overall in New York, but the safety showed he is a key cog for the team's defense going forward.

  • Giants' Xavier McKinney: Logs limited action in preseason

    McKinney played in one of the Giants' three exhibition games, logging 21 snaps on defense against Carolina in Week 2.

    McKinney made one tackle in the exhibition Week 2 game while spending most of his time on the sideline. As is par for the course, New York elected to use the preseason slate primarily to evaluate players lower on the depth chart. McKinney is locked in as the Giants' starter at free safety for the coming campaign.

  • Giants' Xavier McKinney: Plagued by injury in third campaign

    McKinney played in nine games during the regular season, totaling 45 tackles (29 solo), including one sack. He added five defended passes and a forced fumble.

    McKinney played every defensive snap for the Giants from Week 1 to Week 8 before injuring his left hand while on vacation in Mexico during New York's bye. The issue kept the third-year safety out of action until Week 17, when he played 83 percent of the team's defensive snaps and racked up seven tackles against the Colts. Despite the lengthy absence, McKinney's role as a starter upon his return was never in question, and as part of the Giants' young core, he will be looking for a contract extension with the final year of his rookie deal coming next season.

  • Giants' Xavier McKinney: Prominent role in return

    McKinney recorded seven tackles (four solo) and a pass defended on 46 defensive snaps in Sunday's 38-10 win over Indianapolis.

    McKinney logged his second-most tackles in a game during his first game back from his seven-game absence while on the reserve/NFI list with a hand injury. The third-year safety only played 83 percent of defensive snaps, though he still saw the third-highest playing time of Giants defenders during this lopsided victory. However, this was the first time he has not logged a special-teams snap this season, so it's possible the team still wanted to bring him back slowly after being activated Saturday. McKinney has now accumulated 45 tackles, one sack and five passes defended over nine games this season, and he should retain a prominent role heading into the playoffs.

  • Giants' Xavier McKinney: Likely to return Sunday

    The Giants activated McKinney (hand) from the reserve/non-football injury list ahead of Sunday's game against Indianapolis, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

    McKinney hurt his left hand in an ATV accident during the Giants' bye week and hasn't seen game action since Week 8. Coach Brian Daboll indicated earlier this week that McKinney wasn't likely to return to action against the Colts, but the safety was designated to return to practice Thursday and has now been activated just two days later. McKinney logged 100 percent of New York's defensive snaps in his eight games so far this season, but he could be on a snap count Sunday given the length of his absence.
