Five New York Giants Start Training Camp Off on PUP, Two More Held Out of Conditioning Drills: The Giants placed five players on the active Physically-Unable-to-Perform (PUP) List on Friday: FB Henry Hynoski (knee), OG Chris Snee (hip), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (back), DT Markus Kuhn (knee), and CB Terrell Thomas (knee). Players placed on the active PUP list at the start of training camp can come off the list at any time. A player on the active PUP still counts against the 90-man training camp roster limit.
“(Pierre-Paul is) coming,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “He’s done well. He’s worked hard. I’ve seen him the last two days on the machines in there. His weight is good. He’s optimistic.”
In addition, OC David Baas (unknown) and WR Jerrel Jernigan (hamstring) were held out of conditioning drills.
“I’m not sure why Baas was, to be honest with you,” said Coughlin. “Baas has been doing everything, he came in, and he’s in outstanding shape, but they chose to hold him over there on the side. Jernigan, a little tenderness, you know, so I hope we don’t have to deal with that.”
Giants Sign FB Ryan D’Imperio, Waive PK David Buehler: The Giants signed FB Ryan D’Imperio on Friday. To make room for D’Imperio, the Giants waived PK David Buehler.
First Training Camp Practice Begins on Saturday: The first training camp practice will be held at 1:30-3:45PM on Saturday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. For a complete schedule and Giants.com Q&A guide, see the Training Camp section of the website.
