“(Beatty’s) back was bothering him,” said Coughlin. “He was kind of slowing down a little bit. So I think they’re going to look at that.”

Quotes: Defensive Line Coach Robert Nunn on DT Marvin Austin: “A lot of quickness and explosiveness. Off to a good start, very good condition. You know, the thing with Marvin, he hasn’t played in a couple of years. It’s a good thing, pulling back a little bit sometimes. It’s better to have to tell him, ‘whoa, then go.’ He’s got to slow down a little bit, concentrate on technique a little bit more, but he’s off to a good start in camp. Preseason will tell us, give us a picture of where he is…He’s very sudden, coming off the ball. He shows some strength and power…I’m pleased with where he is. ”
Nunn on DT Shaun Rogers: “With Chris (Canty) being out, Shaun has come in here and made a strong commitment with his conditioning part of it. I really think Shaun’s going to be a guy who can really help us on Sundays. He’s been very good in the meeting rooms, in a great frame of mind. He’s helping the young guys, and he’s off to a good start.”
