Good morning, New York Giants fans! The Giants will hold their final practice on Friday before flying to Canton, Ohio for Sunday's Pro Football Hall of Fame Game.
The biggest question for the Giants right now is how many healthy bodies they will bring to Canton. We know that running back David Wilson (neck) and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) won't play. Several other players either missed Thursday's practice or left early.
The following players did not practice at all on Thursday:
Wilson, Beckham, defensive tackle Mike Patterson (shoulder), offensive lineman John Jerry (knee), linebacker Spencer Paysinger (concussion), linebacker Spencer Adkins (groin), kick returner/wide receiver Trindon Holliday (hamstring), cornerback Travis Howard (knee).
The following players left practice early:
Defensive end Robert Ayers (ankle), offensive tackle Will Beatty (illness), cornerback Bennett Jackson (ankle) and wide receiver Corey Washington (heel).

"It really doesn't matter. It's not a point of my concern right now. My point of concern is these practices and getting prepared the best I can for these preseason games to show what I can do."

"Beckham may have a redshirt year," former Giants receiver and SiriusXM host Amani Toomer said.
"If you are not up to speed in training camp, you are really under the gun and I don’t expect him to be a contributor at this time — not until midway through the season, or at all. … You are a rookie. It’s just not good. Everybody’s Spidey sense is going off in terms of: Is this guy tough enough to play? Is this guy serious enough to play? He’s saying all the right things, but in the NFL that’s not good enough."
