Kayvon Thibodeaux has a sprained MCL and may not miss the team’s opener, according to the latest reports.
The sprain is viewed as a 3 to 4 week injury and the New York Giants don’t have their first matchup until September 11 vs. Tennessee.
A more conservative timetable — 4 weeks — would put the young edge rusher on pace to debut ay home against the Carolina Panthers.
The 2022 fifth overall pick was the victim of a cut block in the second quarter Sunday while rushing into the Cincinnati Bengals’ backfield.
Thibodeaux rolled to his side and almost immediately grabbed for his knee.
A cart was brought onto the field for the defensive end but he exited on his own power and went into the Giants’ medical tent before returning in better spirits.
