Thanks to the Jets' preseason opener, you didn't get to see the New York Giants practice today unless you have media credentials.

But, practice did happen, and the beat writers had news to tweet.

Injury Report

Jon Beason, Peyton Hillis, Daniel Fells, and Xavier Grimble are all still working their way back from their various injuries.

After sitting out practice Wednesday, both Geoff Schwartz and Jerrel Jernigan returned to practice, while Odell Beckham stepped up his on-field work again.

Practice & Plays

The offense started by working on their screen game, and like yesterday, Andre Williams got the lion's share of the first team reps.

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Perhaps in response to Peyton Hillis' injury, the Hynoceros got an increased role in the offense:

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

The receivers also got some work in today as well

Of course, the defense showed up today too. The secondary has been impressive and active all camp, and today was no different.

Chandler Fenner is a recent addition to Giants camp and has been as active as the rest of the secondary.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>JPP just went around LT Charles Brown with ease on consecutive plays.

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

The offense managed to close out practice on a high note though:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Rookie Corey Washington: The Closer. Long TD pass on fourth and 2 in 2 min drill ends practice.

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Finally, after practice several players were getting some extra-curricular work in:
