2014 New York Giants Training Camp: 8/6 Practice Round Up, Injury Bug Bites

New, comments

What happened when the Giants took the field in there only open practice of the week.

The only open practice of the week was an eventful one.

It opened with the news that Jerrel Jernigan and Geoff Schwartz would be sitting out today's practice. As well, Daniel Fells and Xavier Grimble sat out practice as well.

In their places, some rookies got to run with the 1's. After impressive showings in the Hall of Fame game, Weston Richburg (LG), Marcus Harris (WR), and Andre Williams (RB) all got to work with the starters in team drills.

Predictably, the injury bug wouldn't leave well enough alone for the day, and followed up with a scare for Marcus Harris

(By the way, if anyone is wondering at Harris' twitter handle, "Soup" is short for "Super", a nickname given to him by high school teammate Jeremy Maclin. Yeah, that Maclin.)

Harris' scare is followed up by a scary leg injury to Kelcy Quarles

Quarles played well along side Jay Bromley in the Hall of Fame game, looking quick off the snap and powerful. Hopefully this doesn't keep him down long.

On the positive side of things, Odell Beckham Jr and Jon Beason are both making progress in their return from injury.

Also free agent defensive end Robert Ayers returned to practice today as a full-go.

Amid all the injury turmoil, some Giants actually practiced too

And we'll wrap up this round up with a couple familiar faces:
