Since the Giants will be playing the Bills on Sunday night (on NBC), the Giants are required to release a depth chart, too. It doesn’t contain many surprises, but it begins to answer the fairly important question of who will start at the undermanned tight end position.
The official chart gives the gig to Larry Donnell (pictured). He’s followed by Daniel Fells on the second team and Dickensian antagonist Xavier Grimble as the third-string option. Falling in the ominous “other” category are Kellen Davis and Adrien Robinson.
Donnell appeared in 16 games with one start in 2013, catching three passes.
Elsewhere on the depth chart, injured rookie receiver Odell Beckham appears as a second-stringer behind Rueben Randle, and Ryan Nassib is listed as the No. 2 quarterback, ahead of Curtis Painter. Rashad Jennings is the starting running back, followed by David Wilson and then Peyton Hillis.
Newcomer Trindon Holliday, who’ll play receiver only if the rest of the wideouts eat a bad batch of clams casino on Saturday night, is listed at the top punt returner and the No. 2 kickoff return specialist, behind Quintin Demps.
Again, none of this is binding. But it’s more informative than a 90-man roster listed in alphabetical order.
