Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Here are some of the Giants-related stories making news today.

Will Beatty aims for better performance

Giants' left tackle Will Beatty surrendered three sacks last week and had a touchdown-negating holding penalty in one of the worst games of his career. With the Giants likely fielding a patchwork line Sunday vs. the Kansas City Chiefs Beatty knows he needs to be better.

"What I can do is locking down my position, making sure that my position is not a problem, making sure that Eli has time to throw from my stance, my point of view, that left side. It's just doing your job, doing what you can do, that helps a lot in cleaning up the overall problem," Beatty said on Thursday. "I know I can do better."

David Baas hopes to 'manage' neck issue

Center David Baas didn't reveal much about the neck injury that may sideline him Sunday, but hinted that it is similar to issues he experienced two years ago when he played in only 11 games.

"I think it's something that I can manage, not the best plan that I want but we managed it two years ago," Baas said. "It's something that I definitely don't want to mess with too much because, obviously, if I do, it's going to keep me out for a really long time. We're just doing whatever we can right now to get it right and we'll go from there."

David Diehl not sure he will be ready by Sunday

Veteran offensive lineman David Diehl has returned to practice this week following preseason thumb surgery. Diehl doesn't know if he will be ready to play Sunday, when the Giants might be without starters Baas and Chris Snee.

"We'll see what happens. As of right now, like I said, it's only been the second day. I'm going to go out there again tomorrow, go give it my best shot to see if I can be out there on Sunday and help this football team," Diehl said. "I haven't punched anybody or hit anybody in five weeks, so I think it's just getting back to getting out there and playing. In regards to the technique and my conditioning."
