The start of the regular season is about a month away for the NY Giants and it can't get here any sooner. There are still a lot of things to figure out before kickoff, but things are looking good for this team. Luckily for Brian Daboll, some more help on offense could be on the way.

Still recovering from a torn ACL, Wan'Dale Robinson has been out of action for the G-Men. However, don't rule out him being ready to take on the Cowboys on Sept. 10 just yet. According to insider Art Stapleton, there's a chance we see a fully healthy Robinson before Week 1:

NY Giants WR Wan'Dale Robinson is progressing nicely in his rehab

With the influx of wide receivers for the roster this offseason, sometimes it's easy to forget that Robinson is still in town. Make no mistake about it, though, the former second-round pick has a ton of potential to succeed for this team.

Robinson's rookie year didn't go as planned - that's stating the obvious. However, the same day he suffered his serious knee injury against the Lions, he also had his coming out party for Big Blue. In that contest, the 5-8, 185-pounder caught nine balls for 100 yards.

While Robinson isn't the biggest guy in the world, he's got fantastic speed and he's a shifty runner. Daboll and Mike Kafka are confident in Robinson's abilities. This campaign, it's all going to come down to if Robinson can stay healthy or not.

Yes, the Giants have brought in new faces for the aerial attack, highlighted by Darren Waller, Jalin Hyatt and Parris Campbell, but Robinson will still be a guy to keep an eye on moving forward. He's only scratched the surface in terms of making noise for this squad. The sooner he can get close to 100 percent too, the better.
