The NFL’s fifth-ranked total defense has just been stripped of their starting outside linebacker for at least the next three weeks. The New York Giants placed edge defender Oshane Ximines on injured reserve Friday, five days after the former Old Dominion star suffered a shoulder injury in Week 4’s 17-9 defeat at the hands of the Los Angeles Rams.

Ximines, who failed to practice all week due to the injury, is now eligible to return to New York’s active roster for Week 8’s bout against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The second-year pro now joins fellow Giants starters Saquon Barkley and Sterling Shepard on the IR, the latter of which is eligible to return next week against Washington.
