Baker seemed to come out of Thursday’s preseason opener against the New York Jets fine. He reportedly “felt something” in his knee during warm-ups prior to Sunday’s practice and will go for tests.
“Just in his individual warmup type stuff, something with his knee. We’re just checking it out (with) an MRI. I have no information on that right now,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “(It happened) just kind of in the warmup drills. He just felt something so he’s getting that checked out.”
This “uh-oh” news about Baker, the team’s starting cornerback opposite veteran Janoris Jenkins, worsens an already tenuous situation at cornerback for the Giants.
Grant Haley missed Thursday’s game with a shoulder and Sam Beal sat out with hamstring and groin issues. Beal did not practice on Sunday and Haley worked in limited fashion with a yellow non-contact jersey.
Sixth-round pick Corey Ballentine worked with the first team on Sunday.
