The New York Giants had their fifth full-team practice of their 2018 training camp on Monday, and third-straight padded practice. The team obviously wants to instill a tough, physical edge, wasting no time getting to hitting in padded practices. Monday’s practice was an eventful one, with big catches, big hits, and our first training camp fight.
The players will have the day off on Tuesday to rest and heal before getting back on the grind Wednesday. But before that, let’s get to the sights and sounds of Giants’ camp for all the fans who couldn’t make it to East Rutherford and see it for themselves.
First up, we learned that Saquon Barkley would be the only rookie featured in Carrie Underwood’s Sunday Night Football opener.
Later, Davis Webb talked about the progress he has made since last season.
To the field we go!
Okay, enough with the fundamentals... Now individual drills:

On to team practices!
And we have our first fight of training camp. Surprisingly, Will Hernandez isn’t one of the principles — those would be Olivier Vernon and Wayne Gallman.
No hard feelings, though, and Vernon and Gallman soon made sure everything was cool. Meanwhile, it was back to business, and newly re-signed CB Kenneth Durden laid out for the pick:

Spin forward a bit in practice, Eli hits Engram who proves hard to bring down in the open field.
Now the Giants move on to some situational football:
With the situational football in the books, that’s all for the fifth practice. Good to see Dave Gettleman out on the field!

And remember folks, “LET’S GO GIANTS!” How can you not love Damon Harrison? (I mean, other than be an opposing offensive lineman or running back, of course.)
