  Giants | Corey Washington needs improvement    Thu Oct 23, 12:59 AM

New York Giants WR Corey Washington has few targets, zero catches and he was inactive in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys. Receivers coach Sean Ryan said Wednesday, Oct. 22, Washington has disappeared after his big preseason because he is still raw. 'He's learning to run an entire route tree,' Ryan said. 'There is growing to be done with Corey. He works on his releases, his routes, his tops of the breaks, getting out of those -- things he needs to improve on. That is where he is right now. He's a work in progress.'

  Giants | Eli Manning is much improved    Thu Oct 23, 12:58 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has completed 65 percent of his passes, which would be a career high. He also has 14 touchdown passes to just five interceptions, compared to 10 touchdowns and 15 interceptions at this point last season. '(The difference is) probably in his football,' quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf said Wednesday, Oct. 22. 'I think he is playing at a high level and I think improved football has really helped out.'

  Giants | Odell Beckham could move around    Thu Oct 23, 12:57 AM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. might be moved around over the final nine games, according to receivers coach Sean Ryan. He said Wednesday, Oct. 22, that he envisions moving Beckham around so teams cannot just key on the young playmaker, and the belief is that Beckham's skills will play well in the slot. The only thing that may prevent the team from moving him inside is that they don't want 'to overload him.'

  Giants | Rueben Randle could work in slot    Thu Oct 23, 12:57 AM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle could be used in the slot over the final nine games, as the team works to replace WR Victor Cruz (knee). 'The other guy that can do certain things in the slot for us is Rueben because he's smart and he's a big target in the middle of the field,' receivers coach Sean Ryan said Wednesday, Oct. 22.

  Giants | Larry Donnell hasn't hit ceiling    Thu Oct 23, 12:53 AM

New York Giants TE Larry Donnell is just scratching the surface, according to tight ends coach Kevin M. Gilbride. Some of his mistakes, including fumbles and blocking deficiencies, are simply the product of a player at the low end of his ultimate progression. 'He's so green with everything he does,' Gilbride said. 'He hasn't been playing the position for very long. But he works at it, he tries to get better and it's paid off in the passing game and he's getting better every week in the run game.'

New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz (toe) is destined to return to practice next week, but he still has a ways to go before he is ready for a game. Offensive line coach Pat Flaherty is uncertain where Schwartz will play, only that he will. Schwartz might play right guard for OG John Jerry or left guard for rookie OG Weston Richburg.

Footballguys view: Graham was only targeted twice in the game against the Lions in Week 7...and he caught zero passes thrown his way. We'll see if he can get healthier and get back on track this week. This ankle injury complicates things, but Graham is still a low-end TE1 in Week 8.

New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

  Bengals | A.J. Green absent at practice    Wed Oct 22, 04:32 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) wasn't feeling good enough to return to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. Head coach Marvin Lewis said Green won't play in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens unless he's 'significantly healed,' but left the door open for Green to play. "It's hard for me to put a guy out there Sunday that I don't think can last a full game," Lewis said. "If we have A.J. for part of the game doing certain things, that would be great. I think we could operate offensively ... I guess we'll cross that bridge when the time comes."

Footballguys view: Green's status for Week 8 is up in the air right now. Watch to see if he can practice later in the week.
