The No. 5 overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft is about to make his debut in Week 3.
Sidelined for the primary two weeks of his rookie season as a consequence of an MCL sprain, Latest York Giants defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux is officially energetic and can play in his first profession game when Big Blue faces the visiting Dallas Cowboys on Monday night.
Unfortunately for the Giants, they might be without wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and defensive lineman Leonard Williams (knee), who were each doubtful coming into the sport.
Thibodeaux, who was questionable coming into Monday, was injured in a preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Aug. 22. There was optimism the Oregon product could be available for the season opener or by Week 2, but Thibodeux’s first game was delayed until Week 3.
Rife with star potential on and off the sphere, Thibodeaux playing his first game in prime time seems only right.
The Cowboys (1-1) and Giants (2-0) kick off at 8:15 p.m. ET.
