New York Giants LB Olivier Vernon to make season debut vs. Philadelphia Eagles

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants will be getting back outside linebacker Olivier Vernon — perhaps their most indispensable defensive player — for Thursday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Vernon is expected to make his season debut after missing the first five games of the season with a high ankle sprain. He was not given an injury designation on the week’s final injury report Wednesday, even though he was listed as a limited participant in practice.

His return is a big boost for a Giants defense that enters this week tied for the fewest sacks in the NFL with six.
