Injury Report: Not practicing yesterday were WR Hakeem Nicks (PUP – foot), TE Travis Beckum (PUP – knee), DT Chris Canty (PUP – knee), and LB Clint Sintim (PUP – knee).
CB Terrell Thomas left practice early when his back tightened up. “His back is tight,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “His legs are fine.”
“It’s God’s plan,” Thomas said. “And I’m not worrying about it. It’s not like I have a back spasm or messed up anything. It just really locked up on me. It came out of nowhere. Usually, sometimes it’s just tightness. But I’ve never had something like this or kept me out of practice or in a game where my back locked up on me. Things happen for a reason. I’m glad that it’s minor. I’ll be ready to go tomorrow.”
LT Will Beatty (back) practiced. Beatty said his back recent back injury is unrelated to the back spasms he experienced last year.
“I feel good,” said Beatty before practice. “So they’re going to take it slow and build me up into it. In the first few practices anyways, so that gives me a good opportunity to actually practice with everybody and test the back out. To see how it’s feeling.”
“(This injury) went down to a nerve in my right leg so the best remedy was time,” said Beatty. “You don’t want to mess with it or injure yourself more and get surgery. So it was the non-surgical route of taking time and making sure it recovers fully before you get out there.”
“I think they say limited as in they see what’s going to happen and then we take it from there,” said Beatty. “Because they’re not saying, ‘do this or don’t do that.’ You know certain moves that you can’t do. All that of that is mainly in the weight room. So on the field the doctor cleared me to go. So I’m cleared. They’re just making sure I don’t re-aggravate it.”
“I was careless at the beginning of OTA’s,” said Beatty. “I was working out. Excited to get back and then it was my fault. It was like now you’re getting older. You have to be more mature about what you do and taking care of your body…The doctor said it’s not like it’s a recurring injury. It’s something that once it heals; you’re good to go. It’s just make sure you don’t put yourself in an awkward position where you’re straining or pulling a groin or something like that. Because that can hurt your back.”
