Defensive end Josh Mauro (unknown), defensive end R.J. McIntosh (unknown), linebacker Avery Moss (unknown), and safety Darian Thompson (unknown) did not practice.
Some snippets from various media sources:
- For the second day in a row, the first-team offensive line was left tackle Nate Solder, left guard Will Hernandez, center Jon Halapio, right guard Patrick Omameh, and right tackle Ereck Flowers.
- The starting safeties again were Andrew Adams and Curtis Riley.
- Cornerback Donte Deayon intercepted a pass in early passing drills.
- Quarterback Eli Manning threw a touchdown pass to wide receiver Cody Latimer during redzone drills, beating cornerback Janoris Jenkins. Latimer was active catching the football.
- Safety Andrew Adams nicely broke up an endzone throw to tight end Evan Engram.
- Quarterback Davis Webb made an excellent throw to wide receiver Roger Lewis, Jr. on a fade route. Lewis made a one-handed catch but his second foot was out of bounds.
- Place kicker Marshall Koehn was 7-of-8 on field goal attempts; he missed his shortest attempt.
- Linebacker Lorenzo Carter flashed a nice burst off the edge on a blitz.
- Quarterback Eli Manning overthrew wide receiver Sterling Shepard deep over the middle.
- Running back Saquon Barkley demonstrated outstanding quickness and acceleration after catching a pass in the flat from quarterback Eli Manning, splitting two defenders, and then streaking downfield for a touchdown. Linebackers have had a very hard time covering Barkley.
- Wide receiver Kalif Raymond received some first-team reps. He dropped a pass but also caught a touchdown on a fly pattern from quarterback Davis Webb.
- Quarterback Davis Webb demonstrated nice touch on a wheel route to running back Wayne Gallman.
- The defensive front batted down a lot of passes at the line of scrimmage.
