The Giants will be without their top free agent for the next few weeks.

The New York Giants top free agent signee this offseason wide receiver Kenny Golladay, will “probably miss 2-3 weeks with a hamstring pull,” per NYDNsports’ Pat Leonard. Golladay suffered the injury in practice on Tuesday and all reports have indicated it wasn’t a significant injury.

The timetable of 2-3 weeks doesn’t sound great for a player adjusting to a new team and quarterbacks, but we would also assume that number is conservative as they don’t want Golladay having this injury come back and become a persistent problem throughout the season. It’s not the best news, but with five weeks until the start of the season he should be ready to go for Week 1.

Golladay’s absence could help the Giants first-round pick wide receiver Kadarius Toney see more work with the first team and get needed reps with Daniel Jones. Sterling Sheperd and Darius Slayton round out the receiving group as Jones goes into the most important season of his career.
