August 12, 2010 New York Giants Training Camp Reports: The following media sources have provided training camp reports:
Injury Report: Not practicing yesterday were TE Kevin Boss (ankle/hamstring), H-Back Travis Beckum (hamstring), TE Scott Chandler (hip flexor), TE Jake Ballard (hamstring), WR Steve Smith (groin/hip), WR Sinorice Moss (groin), WR Tim Brown (groin/hamstring), RG Chris Snee (knee), OG Kevin Boothe (PUP – chest), CB Corey Webster (glute), CB Terrell Thomas (leg), and S Michael Johnson (back spasms).
Smith said that while the MRI taken on his groin earlier this week showed only a minor strain, it also showed what he called “hip stuff”. “I ran today on the hill pretty hard. (The groin is) way better,” said Smith. “I’m just taking it day to day… I’ll be out there next week. Definitely.”
Regarding this hip issue, Smith downplayed it and said, “I’ve been playing with it for years.”
Chandler and Ballard were scheduled to undergo MRIs in New York yesterday.
