New York Giants Add TE Jerome Cunningham to Practice Squad: Though not officially announced, the Giants have added TE Jerome Cunningham to the Practice Squad. The Giants have now filled nine of their 10 available Practice Squad vacancies.

Cunningham played college football at Southern Connecticut State University from 2009-2012, but he was not with an NFL team in training camp until August 2014 when the Giants signed him. He did try out with the Indianapolis Colts in May 2013 and Arizona Cardinals in May 2014, but was not signed by either team. Cunningham lacks ideal size for the position; he’s built more like an H-Back. But he is a good athlete who catches the ball well.

Because of this move, we have updated the Transactions and Roster sections of the website.

September 1, 2014 New York Giants Injury Report: Not practicing on Monday were WR Odell Beckham (hamstring), LG Geoff Schwartz (toe), and OG Brandon Mosley (back).

Head Coach Tom Coughlin was asked if there was any chance that Beckham might practice this week. “I doubt that very much,” said Coughlin. “Let’s just let this kid get better. Everybody settle down and let the kid get better. I mean, I went to him and said, ‘Let’s not have any more setbacks.’ Whatever it takes to get over this, let’s do this. Let’s encourage him, let’s not let him feel like he is an outsider, let’s get on with it. But, I mean, to talk about him every day. I will let you know when he is ready to do something, I will let you know.”

“Because it is every day it is the same question over and over,” continued Coughlin. “He is not ready to play. He may be a couple, three weeks away, so we are not going to talk about him. We have a game to play. Can we talk about the guys playing in the game, instead of people that are on the injury report. Thank you for bearing with me on that one.”

“I have no idea (when I will practice),” said Beckham. “We don’t have any (timetable), that’s something you have to ask Coach or the trainers really.”

“I would say that (Mosley) is much better than he was before the start of the weekend, or whatever day this is, and if he continues to make that kind of progress, perhaps he will be able to practice later in the week,” said Coughlin.

LB Jon Beason (foot), CB Prince Amukamara (groin), OT Charlie Brown (shoulder), and OT James Brewer (back) returned to practice.

“Yeah, I fully participated today and I felt good,” said Beason. “Guys told me I looked really fast out there. Obviously, I should, with fresh legs. It was hot, but you just keep going. The will has to be greater than the pain. You have to fight through it, knowing that every rep is a rep getting closer to playing.”

New York Giants Add OT Mark Asper to Practice Squad: The Giants have added OT Mark Asper to the Practice Squad, filling eight of the 10 available Practice Squad vacancies. Asper was waived by the Giants on Saturday. Because of this move, we have updated the Transactions and Roster sections of the website.

Nick Becton, San Diego Chargers (May 10, 2013)

Only Two Weeks Left – Please Support BigBlueInteractive.com: There are only two weeks left in the annual BBI contribution campaign. BBI depends on the voluntary contributions from our readers. Please help support the site! For details, please see our contribution page.

New York Giants Sign Seven Players to Practice Squad: The New York Giants signed the following 10 players to their Practice Squad on Sunday:

  • RB Michael Cox
  • WR Julian Talley
  • OT Nick Becton
  • DE Jordan Stanton
  • LB Dan Fox
  • CB Bennett Jackson
  • CB Chandler Fenner

All except Becton were waived by the Giants on Saturday. Becton was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2013 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers. Becton spent time on both the Chargers’ 53-man roster and Practice Squad last season, only appearing in one game. Becton has a nice combination of size (6’6”, 323 pounds), long arms, and athleticism.

In addition, the New England Patriots claimed DT Kelcy Quarles off of waivers. Quarles is a player who the Giants most likely wanted to sign to the Practice Squad.

Because of these moves, we have updated the Transactions and Roster sections of the website.
