Giants Training Camp: Thursday Morning Practice Report

New, comments

Aaron Ross provided a scare for everyone this morning -- including himself. The New York Giants cornerback, who nas a history of leg injuries, slipped on a punt return, gingerly left the field flexing his left leg and dropped a choice epithet on his way.

Ross returned later in the workout, though, and showed that he was just fine. He made a brilliant break across the middle to tip away an Eli Manning pass intended for Bear Pascoe. A few plays later, he ran stride for stride down the left sideline with speedy Tim Brown to break up a long pass from Rhett Bomar.

  • Center Shaun O'Hara was in uniform this morning for the first time since undergoing tests on his ankle. He did not practice, however. In his stead, Adam Koets and Rich Seubert split first-unit snaps at center. That is the first time Seubert has done so during this camp, and he did mess up one exchange. It says here, though, that if O'Hara were to go down for any length of time Seubert is the Giants best option at center right now.
  • Backup quarterback Jim Sorgi continued to struggle, throwing a badly overthrown ball right into the arms of the accepting Antrel Rolle. Rhett Bomar threw the ball decisively today, which is not always the case.
  • Ramses Barden made a twisting catch on a sideline throw from Sorgi that was well behind him. In a game situation that's a ball that would have earned Barden a huge hit from a defensive back.
  • Jason Pierre-Paul made a nice run stop, blowing in from left defensive end to nab D.J. Ware about three yards into the backfield.
  • Terrell Thomas dropped an interception today on a ball overthrown by Manning, and that had defensive coordinator Perry Fewell in a tizzy.
