Recovery still in early phases
Waller (hamstring) said Tuesday he's "still kinda in the early phases" of his recovery process, Charlotte Carroll of The Athletic reports.
Waller has already missed two of the requisite four games since being placed on injured reserve, but based on his comments, he may not be ready to complete his recovery process by the time he's first eligible to be reinstated to the 53-man roster in early December. The veteran tight end said he's already resumed jogging, but he noted that running at full speed and cutting are obstacles he'll need to overcome in the coming weeks before he's deemed ready to practice. With Daniel Jones (knee) already done for the season and the Giants sitting on a 2-8 record, the team has little incentive to rush Waller back on the field until he's truly 100 percent healthy.
