Good morning, New York Giants fans!
We knew after Thursday’s game that rookie running back Jon Hilliman was entering the concussion protocol. Coach Pat Shurmur said Friday there were a couple of other minor injuries.
Running back Wayne Gallman has “a little bit of a foot sprain” and linebacker Alec Ogletree “a little bit of a calf strain.”
Shurmur said wide receiver Darius Slayton (hamstring), cornerback Grant Haley (shoulder) and offensive tackle Chad Wheeler (back) should be able to increase their workloads once the team returns to practice on Sunday.
“Something to build on” in the secondary
There was good and bad from the young players in the Giants’ secondary on Thursday. Here is Shurmur’s assessment.
“I thought they competed. I thought, for the most part, DeAndre Baker performed really well. He’s a gamer, and you can see that. One thing you look for when a rookie goes into a game is if it’s too big for them. All of the guys in the secondary, I thought they competed and you could tell it wasn’t too big for them. They had their mistakes, but those are things we can clean up. For the most part, it was a mixed bag with a positive for those guys. I thought they all took steps forward. DeAndre Baker, Corey Ballentine, who we spoke about last night, Sean Chandler, Julian Love, Kenny Ladler made some plays, Henre’ Toliver was in there and did a couple good things, and Ronnie Zamort. Those guys all did some things where you could say, ‘there’s something to build on there.’ “
