During spring practices, left tackle Nate Solder (ankle surgery) and presumptive right tackle Mike Remmers (back surgery) were sitting out. Coach Pat Shurmur said at the time that he expected both veteran players to be ready when training camp started, and that projection has turned out to be on target.
Shurmur said Wednesday that both players will be on the field when the Giants hold their first practice of training camp on Thursday afternoon.
“Solder and Remmers will be going,” Shurmur said. “I don’t see any of those guys, as we develop our list of guys that you’re curious about, that it’ll be any extended time (off the field).”
Solder said Wednesday he didn’t know what the plan was in terms of how much he would be allowed to do, but that “I’ll be out there tomorrow. I’ll be doing everything they ask me to do.”
Undrafted wide receiver Alex Wesley is the only Giant who will begin camp on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.
Rookie wide receiver Darius Slayton, a fifth-round draft pick, did not practice with the rookies on Wednesday. His status is uncertain.
“He just tweaked his hamstring a little bit (yesterday),” Shurmur said. “Nothing serious. He’ll be back soon.”
