“Two-shoes” Kadarius Toney still doesn’t make it to end of practice

Joe Judge says it’s “not an injury situation”

NFL: New York Giants Rookie Minicamp Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

Kadarius Toney had two fitting cleats on Saturday, but per reports from various media on the scene the New York Giants first-round pick didn’t make it to the end of practice for the second consecutive day.

Toney, a wide receiver selected No. 20 overall, “only made it through about 30 minutes of practice today. He sat out after that and appeared to be stretching out his calf,” per a report from Ralph Vacchiano. On Friday, Toney missed reps with an apparent cleat issue and did not participate in the end of practice conditioning run.

Giants coach Joe Judge said after practice that there was “not an injury situation” with Toney.

Judge added that every player is “kind of on their own program” physically.

“These guys haven’t been with team sports now in over five months. That’s something we have to consider bringing them in,” Judge said. “For a lot of these guys it’s the first time of football movement and organized activity they’ve really done in a significant amount of time.”

Judge also reminded that “this is an orientation weekend.”

Judge said they don’t want to overtax rookies, who are also expected to work with veteran players during Phase 2 of OTAs May 17-21. Whether veterans will show up is debatable, as Giants players are among those around the league who put out a statement saying they would not participate in the voluntary workouts.
