New York Giants news for 8/25.

Steven Ryan-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning New York Giants fans! Here are your headlines for this Monday morning.

Safety reinforcements are incoming

With injuries devastating the safety corps this preseason, there is finally some good news. In a conference call, Tom Coughlin said that he expects Landon Collins, Nat Berhe to practice this week. He also hopes that Cooper Taylor (toe) will return to practice.

According to Ralph Vacchiano, the Giants are also holding tryouts to shore up their safety depth.

The Giants are expected to work out several safeties on Monday. One of them will reportedly be Corey Lynch, a 30-year-old, six-year veteran who last played for the Indianapolis Colts in 2013.

Other tidbits from Coughlin's conference call can be found here.

Which Giants have been disappointing this preseason?

Training camp and preseason games are prime opportunities for the less established players to show off what they've got. Which Giants have been disappointing so far? Patricia Traina lists her five most disappointing players so far. The number one of this list should surprise no one ... well except Tom Coughlin.

Kuhn, who has been working with the starters, gives 100 percent on each play. The problem is that he rarely sheds blocks, he doesn’t use his hands well, he can’t defeat solo blocking and he really doesn’t make many impact plays for a four-year veteran.

Interestingly, head coach Tom Coughlin, whose opinion is probably one of a small handful of people whose opinion about Kuhn really matters, spoke glowingly about the German-born Giant. "Well, he’s a big, strong guy. We’ve talked an awful lot about stopping the run, and he can hold the point in there, which he’s done over and over," Coughlin said. "He’s very smart, and so we look at him as a guy who can anchor down in there and knock back off the ball. And he’s pretty much done that."
