The third and final day of the New York Giants mandatory 3-day mini-camp was held on Thursday at Quest Diagnostics Training Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Thursday’s practice was more of a walk-thru. The veterans are now off until summer training camp begins in late July.
INJURY REPORT AND ABSENTEES…
Wide receiver wide receiver Kevin Snead (hamstring), tight end Rhett Ellison (calf), left guard Justin Pugh (back), right guard D.J. Fluker (unknown), linebacker J.T. Thomas (recovering from torn ACL), cornerback Eli Apple (illness), cornerback/safety Mykkele Thompson (unknown), and safety Darian Thompson (illness) did not practice.
“D.J. got nicked yesterday and he is sore, but he bounced back today,” said Head Coach Ben McAdoo.
Defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa has been excused from the mandatory mini-camp for “personal reasons.”
