    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs has announced his retirement from professional football.

    Huddle Up: Jacobs had one last hurrah with the Giants this season, rushing for 258 yards and 4 TDs in 7 games, but he was injured most of the season and all the hits finally seem to have caught up with the big back.

  • Posted: 12/31/2013 10:52am ET

    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (knee) is uncertain on if he will return. Jacobs will need four months to recover from knee surgery.

    Huddle Up: The Giants pulled Jacobs off the street to fill in for their injured backfield; he'll need to heal and another team will need to be desperate enough to call on him for Jacobs to squeeze another season out of the NFL.

  • Posted: 12/12/2013 12:20pm ET

    A photo of New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (knee) in a hospital before knee surgery was tweeted from his Twitter account Wednesday, Dec. 11. Jacobs said recently that he would likely need his knee 'cleaned out.' He's battled knee issues since 2008, and the issue plagued him for much of this season.

    Huddle Up: No word as to whether or not Jacobs is getting the work done so he can try to play again next year or just to allow Jacobs to walk normally after his career is over.

  • Posted: 12/10/2013 10:26pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (knee) is already pushing to return to the team in 2014, and he indicated that the team would be his first choice over any of the other 31 clubs. 'Listed, there is no place in the (NFL) that I'd rather be than right here at 1925 Giants Drive,' Jacobs said Tuesday, Dec. 10, after landing on season-ending Injured Reserve. 'Nowhere. We could've went 0-16 and I would be happy and smiling in this locker room because I'm a Giant at heart, I love the organization, I love the fans, I love that 'ny'. So there's not a better place for me. I'd rather be here than go somewhere and be undefeated. There is where I belong.'

    Huddle Up: Jacobs' 1-year foray away from the Giants didn't go so well last year in San Fran, but the RB will be 32 by time next season rolls around and it remains to be seen if he'll be in the team's plans with David Wilson (hopefully) and Andre Brown atop the depth chart.

  • Posted: 12/5/2013 1:37pm ET

    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (knee) was not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: Jacobs has had one shining moment -- a 106-yard, 2-TD showing against the defenseless Bears in Week 6 -- but has been inactive or ineffective pretty much the rest of the season. When it comes to Giants' fantasy RBs, you're banking on Andre Brown in all formats and possibly Peyton Hillis in only the deepest of leagues.

  • Posted: 11/29/2013 5:03pm ET

    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (knee) did not practice Friday, Nov. 29, and has been ruled out for Week 13

    Huddle Up: Jacobs' up-and-down season is at another low note. In the meantime, that's good news for Andre Brown's fantasy owners, while Peyton Hillis -- who hasn't played the past 2 games -- is expected to see some work this week.

  • Posted: 11/22/2013 7:45pm ET

    New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin doesn't expect to change things up when it comes to the roles of his running backs. Last week against the Green Bay Packers, RB Andre Brown was the lead back with RB Brandon Jacobs serving as the goal-line and short-yardage option. Brown had 18 carries for 75 percent of the workload, with Jacobs having five touches. RB Michael Cox will likely continue to be used on special teams, meaning RB Peyton Hillis would be inactive for the second straight week.

    Huddle Up: Brown will lose some goal line work to Jacobs but he's still a strong RB2 option both this week against Dallas and going forward for the rest of the season.

  • Posted: 11/14/2013 4:31pm ET

    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring, knee) participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 14. Jacobs was a limited participant.

    Huddle Up: Jacobs has been out since his 106-yard, 2-TD effort against the Bears in Week 6 and still remains far from a certainty to play this week.

  • Posted: 11/8/2013 7:30pm ET

    New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring, knee) did not suffer any setbacks this week. Jacobs is listed as doubtful for the team's Week 10 game.

    Huddle Up: Peyton Hillis and Andre Brown will handle the carries this week for the Giants. With Brown now back in the picture, Jacobs is a fantasy afterthought.

  • Posted: 11/8/2013 4:59pm ET

    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring, knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is doubtful for Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Count out Jacobs for a third straight game, clearing the way for Peyton Hillis and the just-activated Andre Brown to shoulder the load Sunday vs. the visiting Raiders.

  • Posted: 10/26/2013 9:50pm ET

    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) traveled with the team for their Week 8 game, which indicates he has a chance to play. He is still listed as doubtful for the game.

    Huddle Up: Despite Jacobs traveling with the team, fantasy owners should look for other options this week. Even if Jacobs suits up on Sunday, he'll be extremely limited.

  • Posted: 10/25/2013 4:36pm ET

    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) is officially listed as doubtful for Week 8. RBs Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox will split repetitions for the second straight week.

    Huddle Up: Jacobs will miss his 2nd straight game and it looks as if his 60 minutes of 2013 fantasy fame has come and gone with the memory of his 106-yard, 2-TD effort in Week 6 fading fast.

  • Posted: 10/24/2013 4:13pm ET

    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 24.

    Huddle Up: It's starting to look like a second straight missed game for Jacobs, who has not practiced the past 2 days. See if he can get on the field Friday.

  • Posted: 10/24/2013 12:52pm ET

    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs said Wednesday, Oct. 23, that some people take fantasy football way too seriously. The statement comes just one day after he received death threats. 'To the people that take it too serious, us as football players don't owe you nothing,' Jacobs said. 'It's up to (you) to manage your team the way you want to manage it. The only owners and general managers I owe anything to is Jerry Reese, the Mara and Tisch family. Everybody else, I don't concern myself with.'

    Huddle Up: Death threats over an injured player missing a game? It's clearly time for some fantasy owners to drop their computer mouse and check into the nearest mental-health facility.

  • Posted: 10/21/2013 8:44pm ET

    With New York Giants RBs Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and David Wilson (neck) each inactive, RB Michael Cox will draw the start in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings Monday, Oct. 21.

    Huddle Up: So much for the momentum of Jacobs' 106-yard, 2-TD effort in Week 6. Even the extra days of rest didn't help, and now Cox will see his first NFL action as a starter on MNF.

  • Posted: 10/21/2013 11:44am ET

    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) is not expected to play on Monday Night Football in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: The Giants will use a combination of Michael Cox and newly signed Peyton Hillis in the backfield. That, along with the Vikings' struggling and injury-depleted secondary, suggest Eli Manning will be throwing all night long.

  • Posted: 10/19/2013 8:14pm ET

    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) did not participate in practice Saturday, Oct. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: The Giants don't play until Monday night, so it's not an ideal situation for fantasy owners. Reports suggest Jacobs has suffered a setback and his status for the game is in serious jeopardy. Owners should avoid Jacobs this week if possible. If he can't go, rookie Michael Cox and newly signed Peyton Hillis will split carries but expect the Giants to go primarily to the air against Minnesota.

  • Posted: 10/17/2013 1:39pm ET

    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Jacobs has been a hot pickup this week, and many GMs have already plugged him into their starting lineups, hoping for a Monday night facsimile of his out-of-the-blue 106-yard, 2-TD performance in Week 6.

  • Posted: 10/11/2013 12:38am ET

    New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs rushed for a season-high 106 yards and 2 TDs on 22 carries Thursday, Oct. 10 in a 27-21 loss to the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Who can say they saw this coming? Jacobs entered the game with 22 rushes for 48 yards and a score, but rolled through a usually-stout Chicago D for his first 100- yard rushing game since Week 14 of the 2011 season. Jacobs will be a hot pickup this week with questions surrounding David Wilson's availability for the remainder of the season, but things could turn sour again just as quickly with the G-Men struggling at 0-6 for the first time since 1976.

  • Posted: 10/2/2013 4:36pm ET

    New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said the team has confidence in RB Brandon Jacobs even though he has rushed for 11 yards on 11 carries since returning to the team. 'When called up, he's still a powerful guy that we're going to utilize in those short-yardage and goal line situations. He actually played on a lot of special teams and contributed a week ago,' Coughlin said.

    Huddle Up: Perhaps this means he will see more playing time now that Da'Rel Scott is gone. This doesn't bode well for David Wilson, but it's hard to believe the Giants will keep Wilson off the field in favor of Jacobs outside short-yardage situations.
