August 2, 2013 New York Giants Training Camp Reports: The Giants held their sixth training camp practice on Friday afternoon at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. The next practice is on Saturday from 1:00-3:00PM. For a complete training camp schedule and Giants.com Q&A guide, see the Training Camp section of the website.

Injury Update – Pugh Out With a Concussion: Not practicing on Friday were WR Hakeem Nicks (groin), CB Corey Webster (groin), OL Justin Pugh (concussion), FB Henry Hynoski (PUP – knee), OG Chris Snee (PUP – hip), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (PUP – back), DT Markus Kuhn (PUP – knee), and CB Terrell Thomas (PUP – knee).

“Pugh took a shot in the head (on Thursday),” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “He had a headache this morning, so he’s going through the (concussion) protocol…He’ll be out until he passes all the protocols.”

“Webster says he feels pretty good,” said Coughlin. “He did feel a little strain in the groin area, so they’re going to do what they have to so that it doesn’t turn into something. It’s difficult, so he’s got some downtime.”

“The doctor thought (Nicks will) make it back for Tuesday,” said Coughlin.

New York Giants Still Have Offer on Table for Vonta Leach: The New York Post is reporting that the Giants still have an offer on the table for FB Vonta Leach. The offer is believed to be for the veteran minimum. However, The Post is also reporting that Leach has a $2 million offer (with an additional $1 million in incentives) on the table from the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens cut Leach earlier this offseason in a salary cap-related move. It was believed that the Dolphins were the front runner to sign Leach, but The Miami Herald is reporting that the Dolphins are not currently interested in signing him.

“Still status quo with Giants,’’ an unidentified source told The Post. “Wish they had more cap room.’’

Article on WR Hakeem Nicks: Victor Cruz Contract Complicates Matters for NY Giants’ Hakeem Nicks by Ralph Vacchiano of The Daily News

Articles on WR Victor Cruz:

2013 Position Preview – Defensive Tackle:video previewing the Giants’ defensive tackle position heading into training camp is available at Giants.com.

Quotes: S Antrel Rolle on WR Hakeem Nicks: “Totally different to defend. Hakeem Nicks, I think he is a little more deceptive than Victor Cruz. When you look at Nicks you might not think he is moving as fast but when you are up against him, running with him, you understand this guy is moving. His hands are probably the biggest I’ve ever seen on a receiver. I call him ‘The Silent killer.’ His routes are so smooth; everything he does is so smooth. While Victor Cruz is going to always put a little bit of salsa on it. I think he goes out there and gives you the wiggles, gives you the shake and he is exceptionally quick. If he takes a step on you, you can pretty much cancel Christmas.”

Rolle on the Giants’ defense: “My defensive mantra is just to be more consistent. To be more consistent and have more dog in us on a daily basis, on an every down basis. There were times out there, I felt,  that as a defensive unit we went out there and we played exceptional, we played like the Super Bowl caliber team that we were. Then there were times we went out there and played like the 9-7 team that we were. As a defensive unit you can’t have the ups and downs because we all know that defense wins the game. We all know that. With the quarterback that we have, with the offense we have, they are always going to put points on the board. We expect that. So we just have to make sure we limit (the other team’s scoring).”
