New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) tweeted that he is fine after leaving practice early Tuesday, July 29. Wilson said he passed all physical examinations and will find out more Monday, Aug. 3.

  Giants | David Wilson update    Wed Jul 30, 10:08 AM

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) will sit out of practice the rest of the week and won't play in the first preseason game. He underwent tests Tuesday, July 29, and will be examined by the surgeon that performed his neck fusion next week.

Footballguys view: The team needs to be incredibly cautious here. Neck injuries are tricky to come back from. Wilson is a talented player who could be a nice change-of-pace back behind Rashad Jennings this year. We'll see if he can get healthy--and stay healthy--this season.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) left practice with a neck burner Tuesday, July 29.

Footballguys view: Coming back from a neck injury is tricky. For every Peyton Manning, there's multiple players like Eric Dickerson, Sterling Sharpe or Al Wilson who had to stop playing football. We'll see if Wilson can get back out there during practice in the near future.

New York Giants WR Trindon Holliday (leg) is not participating in practice Tuesday, July 29.

Footballguys view: Even though Holliday is a dangerous return man, he's likely on the bubble for the Giants. He can't miss too much practice during training camp if he wants to make a positive impression on the coaching staff.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) will not play in the team's preseason game Sunday, Aug. 3.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. injury update    Tue Jul 29, 12:27 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) said tests taken Monday, July 28, revealed blood in the hamstring. Beckham said he felt good when he entered training camp.

Footballguys view: Beckham will get back on the field as soon as possible. He's a talented rookie who should be a quality starter opposite Victor Cruz at some point this year.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. talked with coach about missing practice    Tue Jul 29, 12:10 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) said he spoke with head coach Tom Coughlin about missing practice. Beckham assured Coughlin that he wanted to be on the practice field and was concerned with making a bad first impression.

Footballguys view: We're confident in the rookie when healthy. Beckham has star potential in the NFL. He can run the entire route tree, he's fearless over the middle, he has the athleticism to be dangerous after the catch and he has the speed to attack a defense deep. If healthy, Beckham will compete with guys like Rueben Randle and Jerrel Jernigan to start opposite Victor Cruz this year.

  Giants | DeMarcus Love update    Tue Jul 29, 02:05 AM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants OT DeMarcus Love (undisclosed) was placed on no-recall waivers with a waived/injured designation Monday, July 28.


  Giants | Jerrel Jernigan in mix to start    Mon Jul 28, 11:30 PM

New York Giants WR Jerrel Jernigan is expected to compete with rookie WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) for a starting spot.

Footballguys view: Jernigan came on at the end of 2013. In the final two games of the regular season, Jernigan combined for 12 catches, 170 yards and two touchdowns. He's hoping to carry that momentum over to this season. If Beckham is slowed down further by his hamstring injury, Jernigan could earn a larger role to start the season.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. out for a week    Mon Jul 28, 11:28 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is expected to be sidelined at least another week due to his hamstring injury. Beckham was originally injured during organized team activities (OTAs), and then he aggravated the hamstring during the first training camp practice. He hasn't practiced since Tuesday, July 22.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the talented rookie here. Beckham is explosive, fearless over the middle and capable of scoring anytime he touches the ball. The Giants need to be cautious here. Hamstring injuries can linger if not given enough time to heal.

  Giants | Mario Manningham still not confident in knee    Mon Jul 28, 10:35 PM

New York Giants WR Mario Manningham (knee) said he is still not 100 percent confident in his surgically repaired knee. 'I'm working on it,' he said of overcoming that psychological hurdle. 'Every day I feel better. (I'm) going out and just trying to get back to where I was.'

Footballguys view: Manningham will gain confidence in his knee as camp goes on. The veteran could be in for more playing time than some think. Rookie first-round pick Odell Beckham Jr. is currently out with a hamstring injury. There is opportunity there for a savvy veteran like Manningham.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) had tests on his injured hamstring Monday, July 28, and the results were negative, according to two sources briefed on the injury.

Footballguys view: That's a good sign for the rookie. The team is going to ease him into the lineup, and Beckham may miss part of the preseason as he gets healthy.

  Giants | Xavier Grimble meets with doctor    Mon Jul 28, 05:19 PM

New York Giants TE Xavier Grimble (hamstring) met with a doctor Monday, July 28, to have his injured hamstring examined.

Footballguys view: Grimble is athletic and has a chance to catch on with a Giants team that has no long (or maybe even short) term answer at tight end on the roster, but an injury that would sideline him for weeks, not days, would be crippling to his chances of making the final 53.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. misses practice again    Mon Jul 28, 03:09 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) missed practice Monday, July 28, to receive treatment for his injured hamstring. Head coach Tom Coughlin said Beckham probably has some tests scheduled for the hamstring.

Footballguys view: Beckham is an explosive player who can get open with ease and make plays after the catch. The Giants are being smart with his hamstring injury. His absence is giving more opportunity for guys like Rueben Randle and Jerrel Jernigan.

  Giants | Want high completion percentage from Eli Manning    Mon Jul 28, 01:43 PM

The New York Giants are looking for QB Eli Manning to complete at least 70 percent of his passes this upcoming season, according to quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf. 'He's well aware of who's done it in the past and what the system can get you in terms of completion,' Langsdorf said. 'So we're trying to focus on that and really trying to do a good job of taking care of the ball and hitting open receivers.'

Footballguys view: The Ben McAdoo system is going to be really exciting to watch this year. We'll see if Manning can have a bounce-back season in 2014. The offense will be designed to get the ball out of his hands quickly on timing routes, so he should see an inflation of his completion percentage.

  Giants | David Wilson takes a hit    Fri Jul 25, 05:28 PM

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) took his first hit of training camp Friday, July 25, without issue. "That felt good," Wilson said.

Footballguys view: That's a great sign. Our own Andrew Garda spent the week at camp and talked to Wilson early on about how he felt. Wilson was confident he was more than ready to take the hit and it appears he was not wrong. Coach Tom Coughlin was also impressed with the back, praising his work and conditioning coming back from the injury. Garda also reported that Wilson has seen a lot of reps behind Rashad Jennings and is noted as the second back on the "unofficial" depth chart released earlier this week. Rookie Andre Williams has had a lot of buzz in fantasy circles, but Garda noted that he has been much lower in the pecking order than expected and several times was behind Peyton Hillis for carries. This will sort itself out more as camp progresses but right now Jennings is the lead and is a low-end RB2, with Wilson as an RB4/RB5 and Williams an RB6. Garda will be at camp frequently, so we'll get a first-hand look at how this shakes out.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. not practicing    Fri Jul 25, 01:56 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is not participating in practice Friday, July 25.

Footballguys view: It's been this way all week. Our own Andrew Garda is at camp and says that Beckham was catching some balls from a machine and an assistant, so that's a good sign. But he also reports that coach Tom Coughlin already seems to be frustrated with the constant hamstring issues which have plagued Beckham since OTAs. If he can't get on the field, he won't be a factor in this offense. Right now, Victor Cruz is in the slot, with Rueben Randle and Jerrel Jernigan on the outside (Jernigan on three-wide sets only). This could be a productive fantasy offense but it won't matter for Beckham if he doesn't get healthy.

  Giants | Jon Beason aiming for preseason opener    Fri Jul 25, 12:16 PM

New York Giants LB Jon Beason (foot) is hopeful he can play in the preseason opener. He's running in water as part of his rehab.

Footballguys view: Our own Andrew Garda has been attending camp and reports that Beason feels very good and while he knows he's not 100%, feels that he will be soon and knows that the team is making sure he stays on the path and doesn't overdo it. Beason also mentioned that he feels like he is getting a lot out of the film work , especially with Jameel McClain. Beason being out has moved McClain to the MLB position and rookie Devon Kennard to the SAM spot. Kennard will likely move out when Beason is healthy (McClain will shift to the SAM) but clearly he has caught the eye of the coaching staff. This could be a very productive group of linebackers.

When you go home, that's when you think about that stuff,' Pierre-Paul said.

  Giants | Coach getting frustrated with Odell Beckham Jr. injury    Thu Jul 24, 03:43 PM

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is getting frustrated with WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) not being on the practice field due to a hamstring injury. "We need to get the guy back out here and get him back on the field," Coughlin said.

Footballguys view: The rookie does not want to draw the ire of Grandpa Coughlin. Beckham will work hard to get back on the field, but hamstring injuries are tricky. There's only so much the team can do. It sometimes takes a long time to get back from hamstring injuries.

Footballguys view: The team has to watch this situation closely. Hamstring injuries are known to linger if not treated properly. Beckham is a fantastic talent, and he could start on the outside opposite Victor Cruz this year.

Our Andrew Garda is covering Giants training camp and will convey his thoughts later this summer.

  Giants | Daniel Fells may have the edge    Thu Jul 24, 09:34 AM

New York Giants TE Daniel Fells has received the first snap in 11-on-11 drills during the team's two days in training camp.

Footballguys view: The Giants tight end situation is a mess, with no proven pass catchers in the bunch. This means more three-wide sets, which could make #12 overall pick Odell Beckham or 2013 late-season star Jerrel Jernigan candidates to see the field a lot this year. "JPP of tight ends" Adrien Robinson is the only name worth watching in this position battle, but the chances that this situation produces a fantasy relevant TE are very low.

New York Giants TE Kellen Davis, TE Adrien Robinson and TE Daniel Fells all received first-team reps in practice Wednesday, July 23. All three rotated into the backfield and played some fullback.

Footballguys view: No, no and no. Just say no when it comes to drafting a Giants tight end. Even in super deep dynasty leagues, we're no longer that thrilled by the likes of Robinson.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. dealing with hamstring injury    Wed Jul 23, 04:22 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) tweaked a hamstring in practice Tuesday, July 23, according to general manager Jerry Reese.

Footballguys view: The team will wisely be cautious with the talented rookie here. Beckham is clutch, and he will haul in the big catch when the team needs it the most. He's fearless when running routes over the middle, and Beckham has the speed to be dangerous after the catch. Beckham should eventually win the starting job opposite Victor Cruz.

  Giants | Could use three-man rotation at RB    Wed Jul 23, 08:18 AM

New York Giants RBs Rashad Jennings, David Wilson and Andre Williams could be used in a three-man rotation this season to keep Jennings fresh.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to keep an eye on this battle in camp. Jennings should be the lead back, and he's a fine runner and receiver out of the backfield. Wilson could be the team's change-of-pace back because of his speed and explosiveness. Williams could be the team's banger in short-yardage and goal line situations.

  Giants | Eli Manning's ankle looks fine    Wed Jul 23, 12:13 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) has shown no ill effects during camp from ankle surgery that sidelined him for earlier offseason activities.

Footballguys view: Good news for Manning here. Manning is looking for a bounce-back season in 2014. Playing under new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo could help him do that. We like him as a low-end QB2 with upside for your fantasy team.
