Darius Slayton was limited in practice this week, but should suit up against Washington.

Friday PM update: Darius Slayton was able to get another limited practice in on Friday and is listed as questionable, per Art Stapleton of USA Today. Stapleton believes Slayton will play against Washington.

Thursday PM update: Slayton got in another limited practice session on Thursday, per the official injury report. His Sunday status due to a foot injury remains unclear.

The New York Giants Wednesday injury report showed that Darius Slayton was limited in practice with a foot injury. The second-year wideout had a standout performance against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5 but could be in danger of missing a Week 6 matchup against the Washington Football Team.

Slayton caught eight of his 11 targets for 129 yards against the Cowboys’ porous secondary and has emerged as New York’s top receiving threat with Sterling Shepard on the IR. Slayton leads the Giants in targets (40), receiving yards (365), and touchdowns (2). If he misses time you should expect Evan Engram and Golden Tate to have their roles increased. Damion Ratley is a sleeper to be on the lookout for if you are shorthanded at wide receiver.
