Quotes: DT Chris Canty on QB Eli Manning’s ranking on The NFL Network‘s 100 best football players: “(Eli) could be up a little higher. When you break Johnny Unitas’ record for fourth-quarter touchdown passes I think he deserves to be a little higher than 31 on the top 100. His play speaks for itself, two-time Super Bowl champion, two-time Super Bowl MVP, he’s got credentials out of the wazoo, his quarterback rating’s unbelievable, he plays well in big moments when it really counts, which is crucial for a quarterback, he elevates the play of everybody around him. He allows the defense to play with more confidence. We know if we get him the football late in the game we don’t have to worry about winning, he’s gonna put our team in the best position to win the football game. What he does for our football team and what he means to our team is invaluable…He’s No. 1 in my book, there’s not even any question about it. What he does for our football team, what he means for our football team, he’s my MVP. It doesn’t really matter. I’m sure Eli’s not losing any sleep about being rated No. 31. He’s thinking about how to make our football team better for the upcoming season.’’

LB Michael Boley on Manning’s ranking: “It’s just a poll, I guess. Obviously he’s a lot better than the 31st, he definitely should be top five, if not No. 1. His stats, winning two Super Bowls, that speaks for itself. Eli would have definitely got my vote for No. 1. He’s not the flashiest, but he wins games.’’

Injury Update on DT Chris Canty: DT Chris Canty, who is coming off of offseason knee surgery and who missed the Organized Team Activity (OTA) workouts and mini-camp practices, said yesterday he expects to be able to return to the practice field at training camp.

Canty has not begun running yet, but hopes to do so soon.

“All signs point to go,” said Canty. “I’m feeling pretty good about training camp…The knee feels pretty good. It’s pretty strong now. It’s stable.”

“I expect to be out there for the first day of camp,” Canty said. “Obviously, I defer to the medical staff of the Giants and whatever they feel is in the best interest of myself and the team. Everybody is pleased with the progress.”

Quotes: DT Chris Canty on his improved play last year: “I feel like I just started to get a handle on this 4-3 defense, playing defensive tackle. It was just a matter of getting into the swing of it. I think the best is yet to come for me.”

Canty on DE Jason Pierre-Paul: “JPP’s ability to play any position along the defensive front is what makes him tremendously special. He can play the shade, the two technique, the three technique…he can do it all…anything you want him to do along the defensive front, he can do…There is really nobody in the league right now that you can compare him to. The only person that kind of sticks out where you can compare him to — and I can’t believe I am saying this — but he reminds me a lot of Reggie White. His ability to play all those different positions and to impact the football game the way he does, he is an unbelievable talent.”

Injury Update on WR Hakeem Nicks: WR Hakeem Nicks, who had surgery on his broken right foot at the end of May, said yesterday that he expects to return to the practice field in training camp. The Giants’ players report to Albany on July 26.

“Definitely making training camp,” Nicks said. “I started running about two weeks (ago) but the coaches don’t really want me to force the issue right now so I still haven’t started running yet. They want me to just take my time with it — they feel like that’s what’s best. So right now I’m just taking my time with it…But I’ll definitely be ready for the season.”

Quotes: QB Eli Manning on the loss of TE Jake Ballard to the New England Patriots: “We really didn’t see that one coming. Unfortunate. Jake had a big season for us last year and played well, stepped up, one of those guys no one really knew about, didn’t know he could help us out in the passing game, we thought he could help us out in the running game. He did well, had a great feel. He was gonna be on IR anyway this coming season but definitely a guy we wanted to keep for down the road. That’s part of football, we took a little risk and the Patriots grabbed him up. I know we were all bummed to see him go.”
