Sterling Shepard’s Day

The Giants are continuing to bring Sterling Shepard along slowly after last week’s scare with his ankle.

Rosas Gets His Turn

Wednesday was Aldrick’s Rosas’ turn to kick field goals at Giants camp.

Davis Webb gets 11-on-11 work

Until Wednesday, Webb hadn’t gotten any work during regular team periods. His only work had come during the 7-on-7 “opportunity” period for the younger players. Coach Ben McAdoo confirmed after practice that Webb will see action Friday night.

Special Guest

Former Giant defensive end Osi Umenyiora was at practice on Wednesday.

Injury Updates

Mykkele Thompson (quad), Robert Thomas (soreness), Ryan Murphy (unknown), Kevin Snead (hamstring), Mark Herzlich (stinger), Keenan Robinson (concussion) and Tavarres King (ankle) didn’t work. Reporters on hand saw Robinson outside for the first time since he entered the concussion protocol. Rookie defensive end Avery Moss, who left Tuesday’s practice with a shoulder injury, worked on Wednesday.

The Giants will be off on Thursday. They will open their preseason schedule on Friday when the host the Pittsburgh Steelers.
