Giants’ Beat Writer Practice Reports: The following are brief practice reports provided by the NY/NJ beat writers who cover the Giants:
Injury Update: Not practicing yesterday were DE Osi Umenyiora (knee), DT Rocky Bernard (hamstring/shoulder), DT Fred Robbins (knee), and LB Michael Boley (hip).
Robbins, who is recovering from microfracture surgery continues to insist that he will be able to play this season. “I’m pretty much a fast healer,” said Robbins. “I come back from things quickly. The whole offseason I haven’t had any problems with it as far as swelling or soreness. I’m happy about that. It’s nothing shocking, surprising. I’m where everybody expected me to be and where I expected myself to be.”
OG Rich Seubert (shoulder) was limited to individual drills.
