Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Blake Martinez injury update
Leading tackler and defensive captain Blake Martinez left Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks with a back injury. Coach Joe Judge did not directly address Martinez’ status on Monday, but asked in general about injuries resulting from the game, he said “it doesn’t look like there is necessarily anything serious.”
Judge said the Giants would know more about players who got “nicks and bumps” during the game when they take the field for practice on Wednesday.
Are the Giants on schedule?
Judge was asked Monday if the Giants, 5-2 in their last seven games after on 0-5 start, have progressed at the rate he hoped when the season began.
“I think each team’s expectations and progress are unique. I didn’t really have a definite timetable in terms of where they needed to be at certain points,” Judge said. “There are still things we have to have a lot of improvement on and consistency going forward. We’re far from where we need to be or want to be as a team. There’s a lot of work ahead of us. But I was pleased with the constant progress I saw.
“There were times earlier in the season that you questioned are we coaching it well enough to make sure that they can get this the right way and execute it on the grass? We go back and we find different ways of coaching things, or maybe different ways of hitting individual players and making sure that we get on the same page with it. But ultimately, I like the progress they’ve made right here. I wouldn’t say they’re ahead or behind any kind of a schedule. I just know that they come to work every day and improve, and that’s carried over on a weekly basis.’
