It appears Davis Webb may actually see some playing time. The Giants will deactivate Geno Smith this week and make Webb the backup for Sunday's season finale against Washington, Steve Spagnuolo said Wednesday. The Giants have said Eli Manning will start Week 17, but it's the first game Webb will be active for, which suggests he will play. Prior to the firings of head coach Ben McAdoo and GM Jerry Reese, the Giants had planned to evaluate the other quarterbacks starting with Geno Smith and eventually Webb.
