It appears that the last remaining off-the-field issue confronting the Giants -- Plaxico Burress' contract -- could soon be taken care of.
That, of course, is great news. A happy Burress is a key to the Giants offense. Of course, they also have to get him healthy and get him on the field.
- In that same notebook, Ralph Vacchiano mentions that Brandon London has joined the list of injured wide receivers. Vacchiano notes that the Giants have more injured receivers than healthy ones heading into Thursday's exhibition opener in Detroit.
- Mike Garafolo notes that the exhibition season opens just in time, since the Giants look like a team tired of practicing against each other.
Here are some notes about various Giants' rookies as the first exhibition game approaches.
Mario Manningham is finding learning an NFL playbook to be a challenge, especially after playing in a very simplistic offense at Michigan. Insert your own Wunderlic Test joke here.
- Terrell Thomas is finding out that 'combine shape' and 'football shape' are two completely different things.
- Don't tell Bryan Kehl Thursday's game doesn't mean anything.
