The New York Giants on Monday added running back George Winn to their practice squad, once again dropping quarterback Logan Thomas.
Winn, 25, is a 5-foot-11, 218-pound back who played in 19 games over the past two seasons for the Detroit Lions. In that time he had 23 carries for 74 yards, an average of 3.2 yards per carry.
Let’s check some of the other news around the Giants this morning.
Eli: Giants “ready to make a run”
Quarterback Eli Manning sounded hopeful on Monday as the Giants returned to practice following the bye week.
“It felt good to get back at practice today, run around a little bit after a week off,” he said. “It is good to just get back on the field and get a little practice to knock off a little of the rust. But we are just getting prepared for Philadelphia, so we started talking about some concepts today, but obviously we will get back in here tomorrow and just get preparing and go out there and get going a little bit.
“I think it is kind of the second half of the season, so it is a great time to get that bye week. It is right in the middle of the season, we have been going for a long time, rest the body, rest the mind, but also know that we are coming back and being fully recharged and ready to make a run.”
Gould: “No hard feelings” toward Bears
Giants’ placekicker Robbie Gould spent 11 years with the Chicago Bears before being released at the end of the 2016 preseason.
“This game is about making business decisions and making decisions they think are going to make the team better. I had such a great run in Chicago. I met my wife, I had two boys. I got to play in one place for 11 years, that’s really unheard of,” Gould said on Monday.
“I have no hard feelings. I’m looking forward to playing ‘em, that’s for sure.”
The Giants face the Bears Nov. 20 at MetLife Stadium.
