T-Rock's Take on the Giants
Antrel Rolle is still dealing with the loss of his friend.
“This goes deeper than football,” he said of teammate and wingman Stevie Brown landing on injured reserve with a torn ACL over the weekend. “It still hasn’t hit me all yet.”
Perhaps it will this afternoon when Rolle steps onto the football field and practices for the first time in two weeks – he sprained his ankle on Aug. 12...Read more »
The Giants released a list of 10 players who have either been ruled out or are not expected to play in Saturday’s game against the Jets.
Antrel Rolle’s name is not on that list.
That doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll play. As we learned last week, these lists are fluid. The Giants had ruled Larry Donnell out of the game the very day they played against the Colts, and there he was on the...Read more »
A bit of an abbreviated practice today, about an hour and a half, and most of it was off of cards once again. So here’s your abbreviated practice report:
The big news was that Henry Hynoski came off PUP, but he didn’t wind up doing much more than he had been. About the only difference was he was doing it with the rest of the team and not on a field to the side with the other shunned PUPpies....Read more »
Antrel Rolle was coy about when he might return to practice, but not what he’ll do when he does.
“You’ll see when I see,” he said. “I don’t know. Whenever I’m out there you’ll know I’m out there. I’ll make a lot of noise.”
Rolle was doing some intense agility drills and running yesterday and looked like he was on the verge of returning. It was last Monday that he sprained his ankle and...Read more »
There wasn’t much in the way of live action at today’s practice as most of it was done off cards. But that doesn’t mean there wasn’t news.
For instance, we saw the new shape of the Giants’ offensive line for the first time. With David Baas out for a few weeks, the team decided to make three moves to replace him. They shifted Kevin Boothe from left guard to center, moved David Diehl from right...Read more »
Well, I don’t think THAT was scripted on the scouting cards.
Most of practice was played off of the diagrams that the coaches make up to prepare for the upcoming opponent, so there was very little in the way of live action. Guys were playing hard and there were some interesting things to note, but most of it was just working on fits and placements in shells.

Stevie Brown came out to talk to reporters before practice Friday, which is just one of the differences between last year’s training camp and this one for the Giants safety.
“I didn’t have to do interviews with this many cameras and stuff last year,” he said. “I just got to eat lunch and go back.”
Ah, the good old days of obscurity. Of course having eight interceptions in a season and...Read more »
