AUGUST 14, 2016 NEW YORK GIANTS TRAINING CAMP REPORT…
The New York Giants held their twelfth summer training camp practice on Sunday at Quest Diagnostics Training Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
INJURY REPORT – JAY BROMLEY RETURNS, VICTOR CRUZ AILING…
New York Giants linebacker J.T. Thomas (hamstring) remains on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform (PUP) List.
Defensive tackle Jay Bromley (ankle) was activated off of the PUP and practiced for the first time on Sunday.
“I feel good, I feel good,” said Bromley. “It feels good to be back on the field finally. It’s been way too long…In OTA’s my ankle started bothering me, so I had some pain and we had it checked out. There were bone spurs and it was really nagging, so we decided to get those handled (with surgery).”
Wide receiver Geremy Davis (hamstring), tight end Will Johnson (burner), defensive end Kerry Wynn (groin), and cornerback Eli Apple (knee) did not practice.
“It’s a muscle,” Head Coach Ben McAdoo said of Apple’s knee. “He has a slight muscle strain.”
“It is going to be fine and it is a matter of just taking it day by day,” said Apple.
Wide receiver Victor Cruz (groin) was limited.
“His groin is still bothering him a little bit,’ said McAdoo of Cruz. “Take a look at him tomorrow. He’ll get treatment tonight, and then we’ll take a look at him tomorrow and see how he’s feeling…if he’s not feeling up to par and can’t push through, then he cannot practice…You never know when someone is going to turn the corner.”
Wide receiver Sterling Shepard (groin) and linebacker Keenan Robinson (groin) practiced.
