The New York Giants will be without starting quarterback Daniel Jones for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Jones was inactive for the matchup of first-place teams. Jones was not expected to play because of a hamstring injury suffered last week against Cincinnati. Colt McCoy will make his first start of the season at QB for the Giants.

Seattle was without both starting right tackle Brandon Shell (ankle) and backup Cedric Ogbuehi (calf) leaving a major question on the offensive line. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap was active after leaving last week’s game early with a foot injury.

Veteran Arizona receiver Larry Fitzgerald will miss his second straight game on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The Cardinals also activated rookie defensive lineman Leki Fotu, which should help at a position that’s dealt with a lot of injuries.

Los Angeles Chargers left tackle Sam Tevi is inactive for the game to be with his wife for the birth of his first child. Cornerback Casey Hayward is back after missing last week’s game because of a hamstring injury that ended his streak of 106 consecutive games played.

Eagles cornerback Darius Slay (calf) and Packers outside linebacker Za’Darius Smith (ankle) are active. Both had been listed as questionable on Friday.

Tavon Austin’s Packers debut will have to wait for another day. The Packers signed the 2013 No. 8 overall pick on Tuesday.

Packers running back/kick returner Tyler Ervin is coming back after missing two games with injured ribs. He had been listed as questionable.
