New York Giants training camp continues Saturday at Quest Diagnostics Training Center with yet another practice that will be closed to the public. The reason for the closed practice? The New York Jets will be using MetLife Stadium Saturday evening for their annual Green & White practice.
The Giants are expected to be in full pads Saturday after Friday's walk-thru. How many of the injured Giants, especially on the beleaguered offensive line, will be practicing? Weston Richburg (knee tendinitis) and Ereck Flowers (hip flexor) took part in Friday's walk-thru and head coach Tom Coughlin said he expects them to participate, but "to be restricted." Geoff Schwartz (foot) did not even take part in the walk-thru, so it would seem unlikely he would work today.
[UPDATE: Richburg told reporters Saturdya morning that he had a cortison shot in his left knee, not tendinitis.]
Prince Amukamara (groin), Nat Berhe (calf) and Jameel McClain (stinger) are the other injured Giants.
Here are a couple of other notes for today's practice:
- Quarterback Eli Manning has now gone seven training camp practices without an interception. Of course, he nearly threw one Thursday that was ruled incomplete. Friday probably shouldn't even count, since no passes were even thrown during the workout.
- The Giants hold one more closed practice on Monday before traveling to hold a pair of joint practices with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Keep it right for all of today's practice updates.
