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.”
