Today at Giants practice Marvin Austin, Prince Amukamara, and Michael Coe made some positive strides and all are looking good for week 2. The Giants have a number of banged up players, as does every team, but it seems they all have had encouraging news.
Kenny Phillips: Sore back. Phillips sat out practice but is expected to return Wednesday..the next day of practice.
Prince Amukamara: Ankle. Prince states it is just about managing pain at this point, and after practicing Monday said he didn’t aggravate the injury and that is of course good news. He also is slated to practice Wednesday.
Michael Coe: Hamstring. Coe left Wednesdays game due to a tightness in his hamstring, Coe stated today
“I feel really good, actually,” he said. “I got to run and change direction. I didn’t really feel it. I’m really encouraged and I have been from the get go.”
Will Beatty: Back. Beatty played as a tight end and extra lineman Wednesday night due to his back injury. He says he is feeling better and is now ready to step up and compete for the starting left tackle spot.
Da’rel Scott: Knee. Scott missed the first game with a knee injury, but participated fully in Mondays practice and says he is ready for Sunday.
Keith Rivers: Hamstring. Rivers is a tough guy that rarely complains. He took the day off which will provide him with a full 6 days of rest before Wednesday’s practice.
Marvin Austin: Back. Could it be Marvin is ready? Stay tuned for the Wednesday practice report to see how he is progressing throughout the week. He is still a big question mark.
