We won't have to wait until October to see NY Giants wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson in action. Among the biggest pieces of news for the release of the 53-man roster was that Robinson is good to go for the start of the campaign and he won't be on the PUP list.

Robinson suffered a torn ACL in the showdown vs. the Lions last season - it happened in his breakout contest for the G-Men. The 2022 second-round pick worked around the clock in his rehab and you better believe he was all smiles when asked about getting himself back to full health in time to take on the Cowboys:

Robinson's rookie season didn't go as planned, as he was only able to appear in six games due to injury. In his short time on the field, the 5-8, 185-pounder posted 23 receptions for 227 yards and one touchdown.

While this wasn't what anyone was hoping to see out of the youngster, he's going to make noise for this offense in '23. There's plenty of excitment following the additions of Jalin Hyatt and Parris Campbell to the wide receivers room, but don't forget that Robinson has plenty of potential too.

NY Giants announced 10 captains for the 2023 campaign

In other exciting news, Brian Daboll announced who the team captains would be this season and it's a loaded group: Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, Graham Gano, Adoree' Jackson, Xavier McKinney, Bobby Okereke, Darren Waller, Dexter Lawrence, Andrew Thomas and Leonard Williams.

Waller and Okereke are two newcomers to the G-Men this season, but they have made quite an impact on offense and defense, respectively, already. Both players are deserving of this honor. With Waller, fans are hopeful that he can become the second Giants TE ever to reach 1,000 yards.

It won't be easy, but he looks set for a monster campaign. With Okereke, he's beeing looked at as the savior for the inside linebackers group. The tackling machine arrived to East Rutherford on a four-year, $40 million contract. Something tells us he'll be a stud for Wink Martindale this fall and winter.
