AUGUST 15, 2016 NEW YORK GIANTS TRAINING CAMP REPORT…
The New York Giants held their thirteenth and final summer training camp practice on Monday at Quest Diagnostics Training Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Training camp is now officially over.

INJURY REPORT…
New York Giants linebacker J.T. Thomas (hamstring) remains on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform (PUP) List.

Fullback Nikita Whitlock (burner), wide receiver Victor Cruz (groin), wide receiver Geremy Davis (hamstring), tight end Will Johnson (burner), defensive end Kerry Wynn (groin), and cornerback Eli Apple (knee) did not practice.

“No (update on Cruz),” said Head Coach Ben McAdoo. “Just the status quo… we’re building him up to get to a position where we can make an evaluation. He had the hiccup, hoping to get him some work on Wednesday… Victor and I had a nice conversation yesterday afternoon. We talked about some different things that may be able to help moving forward, and I’ll let him share that. I’m not going to share that; I’ll keep our conversation private.”

“We’re still not giving up on Cruz,” said General Manager Jerry Reese on WFAN. “Hopefully, he’ll make it back.”

Wide receiver Sterling Shepard (groin) was limited. “No, there was no setback,” said McAdoo of Shepard.

Tight end Larry Donnell (dehydration), right guard John Jerry (illness), and cornerback Matt Smalley (shoulder) left practice early.

PRACTICE NOTES…
Some snippets from various media sources:

  • The offense seemed out of sorts today and had a rough practice.
  • Giants dime defense showed a look with Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul switching sides with Johnathan Hankins and Romeo Okwara playing defensive tackle. Keenan Robinson was the lone linebacker. The outside corners were Janoris Jenkins and Donte Deayon with Leon Hall, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Darian Thompson, and Landon Collins (in the box) inside.
  • Safety Landon Collins broke up two passes, one intended for tight end Matt LaCosse and the other for wide receiver Myles White.
  • Quarterback Ryan Nassib hit wide receiver Anthony Dable for a big play against cornerback Trevin Wade. Dable also made a one-handed touchdown catch on a throw from quarterback Logan Thomas.
  • Quarterback Logan Thomas hit wide receiver Kadron Boone deep against cornerback Matt Smalley. Thomas then found wide receiver Darius Powe, who made a nice catch, against Smalley.
  • Taking probably too much time, quarterback Eli Manning eventually found tight end Matt LaCosse for a touchdown against safety Landon Collins.
  • Emmett Cleary came in with the first unit at right guard when John Jerry (illness) left the field. Bobby Hart later got some work in at right guard as well.
  • Quarterback Ryan Nassib connected with wide receiver K.J. Maye in the back corner of the end zone for a touchdown against cornerback Donte Deayon.
  • Quarterback Logan Thomas threw a strike to tight end Jerell Adams for a touchdown against linebacker Brad Bars.
  • With no healthy fullback available, tight end Ryan Malleck received a goal line carry, but he was unable to score.
  • In the 2-minute drill, quarterback Eli Manning hit wide receiver Roger Lewis for a touchdown against cornerback Donte Deayon. Manning went 5-of-5 on this drive with Lewis having two catches.
  • Linebacker Jonathan Casillas stopped running back Shane Vereen on a two-point conversion running attempt.
  • Cornerback Michael Hunter intercepted quarterback Ryan Nassib to end another 2-minute drive on a pass intended for wide receiver K.J. Maye.

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.

PRACTICE NOTES…
Some snippets from various media sources:

  • In 1-on-1 drills, wide receiver Roger Lewis beat cornerback Trevin Wade for a touchdown on a corner post route. Wide receiver Tavarres King beat Leon Hall for a touchdown on a slant.
  • Also in 1-on-1 drills, wide receiver Sterling Shepard beat cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on a crossing route. Wide receiver Darius Powe caught a sideline touchdown against cornerback Donte Deayon.
  • In 1-on-1 drills, wide receiver Odell Beckham easily beat cornerback Janoris Jenkins and was off to the races.
  • In 7-on-7 drills, the three starting receivers were Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard, and Victor Cruz (slot).
  • Safety Cooper Taylor broke up a pass intended for wide receiver Sterling Shepard.
  • In 11-on-11 drills, quarterback Eli Manning rolled out and hit wide receiver Odell Beckham for a diving touchdown catch against safety Nat Berhe.
  • Cornerback Donte Deayon received some snaps with first-team dime defense. He lined up outside with corner Janoris Jenkins. Cornerbacks Leon Hall and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie played inside.
  • The second-team offensive line was left tackle Byron Stingily, left guard Ryan Seymour, center Dillon Farrell, right guard Emmett Cleary, and right tackle Bobby Hart. Adam Gettis was demoted to the third team.
  • Wide receiver Roger Lewis beat cornerback Michael Hunter for a touchdown.
  • On a free play because the defense jumped offsides, wide receiver Sterling Shepard beat cornerback Janoris Jenkins up left sideline. But a bad pass from quarterback Eli Manning floated and was easily intercepted by Jenkins.
  • Running back Paul Perkins received some reps with the second-team offense.
  • In 11-on-11 drills, wide receiver Victor Cruz was blanketed by slot corner Leon Hall. Cruz only saw a few snaps in team drills and was shut out.
  • Quarterback Eli Manning found tight end Larry Donnell for a touchdown against safety Landon Collins.
  • Running backs Paul Perkins and Rashad Jennings broke big runs up the middle.
  • Quarterback Eli Manning hit wide receiver Odell Beckham for a touchdown in the back corner of the end zone against cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
  • Ryan Malleck received some first-team snaps at H-Back.
