New York Giants' Tuesday tidbits, 08.26

New, comments

Here are a couple of Giants' notes that have nothing to do with Michael Strahan or Osi Umenyiora.

  • Plaxico Burress actually went through a full practice Monday.

    "I decided to pull the old car out of the garage and see how I felt today - get some of the dust off of it," Burress said in the team's press release. "I felt pretty good. I'm feeling a lot better - a hundred percent. I didn't have any limitations going either way, right or left. I jumped up and made a few catches. I'm just trying to get back to my old self - getting off the line full speed and being able to accelerate when the ball is in the air. I'm trying to get all the kinks out of the armor.

    "I forgot how tough it is to run routes when you're a little bit winded in the two-minute drill, even though I didn't go but a few plays. It's just good to get out there and run around again. I'm happy I can go out there and run without any pain. I'm basically trying to get into the best playing shape that I can and get my cardio up. I hope I feel pretty good tomorrow."

  • Roster cuts have begun. D.J. Hall, Craig Dahl and Miguel Scott were released Monday. There was some buzz when the Giants grabbed Hall as an undrafted free agent, but he never made an impact. As for Dahl, this is two straight seasons he has torn an ACL. I guess it's just not meant to be for him.
