New York Giants News & Notes: Halfway Through Preseason Notes

New, comments

Good morning, Giants fans. I have to confess that I haven't been able to watch either preseason game in full due to a wonky DVR and a crazy work-travel schedule, so I'm just gonna give you some links and let Ed take care of breaking down the games. I promise that when the real season gets underway, I'll have more to say.

  • As I'm sure you're all aware, the Steelers beat the Giants last night, though it should be noted that the Giants first-team defense kept Ben Roethlisberger out of the end zone and even picked him off. Because I didn't see it, I can't really say much about Hakeem Nicks getting ejected after some punches were thrown between him and Ike Taylor, but hopefully it was just a one-time flare-up and not something we'll have to worry about down the road from Nicks.
  • Some good news from last night's game is that Kenny Phillips was able to get onto the field, along with Keith Bullock.
  • Eli Manning has had his stitches removed and will return to practice this week. The Giants obviously need Eli back, and that would be true even if Rhett Bomar had played great last night, which he certainly didn't.
  • Finally, good article from ESPN New York about how the undrafted Victor Cruz has gotten to where he is now. I'm definitely rooting for this guy to make the team.
