The New York Giants held a light, ‘cards’ practice on Friday. That was partially because they have a preseason game on Sunday evening against the Cincinnati Bengals. It was also because they have a monstrously long injury list at this point in the preseason.

Here are some of the takeaways.

Daniel Jones might sit Sunday

Jones could probably benefit from some live reps, but considering the mess the Giants are in at both center and left guard keeping him out of harm’s way might be the prudent decision.

Brandon Brown talks about scouting players

The Giants assistant general manager spoke to media on Friday. He repeated the team’s “smart, tough, dependable” mantra. More about Brown’s media availability if the team makes a transcript available.

Kayvon Thibodeaux media session

The No. 5 overall pick spoke to media on Friday. We will have a full account of what he said once the transcript become available.

Wide receiver Robert Foster also may have suffered a hamstring injury during Friday’s practice. That is a loooooong list of injured players.

There was this Friday from Newsday’s Tom Rock.

At least Kadarius Toney appears to be getting healthier.
