Training camp is not yet upon us and already the top New York Giants story is related to injuries. Some of them are old, some of them are new, but the common denominator is that they're keeping players from practicing. And on Tuesday afternoon, head coach Tim Coughlin offered a few quick updates on most of them.
“That’s what I’m told, that they will be ready to go,” said Coughlin. “I’m sure there will be some limitations. It won’t be like what it is here. They’ll be able to work.”
Coughlin on Jason Pierre-Paul (back):
“He’s back and he’s here, but he’s in the process of getting to the point where he can do some things and I know that probably for the first three or four weeks he’s not going to be doing much.”
Coughlin on Hakeem Nicks (knee):
“He got some work in today and that was good,” said Coughlin.
Coughlin on Henry Hynoski (knee):
“He’s doing well,” said Coughlin. “Everyday he’s in there.”
In addition to the aforementioned Giants, cornerback Terrell Thomas (knee) did some individual work on the side and hopes to be ready for training camp, while defensive tackle Markus Kurn, who is recovering from an ACL tear, sat out of practice, but also hopes to be ready by the start of training camp.
