T-Rock's Take on the Giants
Markus Kuhn ran wind sprints on a side field and looked good doing it Thursday. The second-year defensive tackle remains on PUP after having an ACL reconstruction, but he’s showing signs that he may be close to healthy enough to lose the designation and return to the active roster.
The question then becomes: Should he?
As long as he is on PUP, he’s safe. He can stay there through the...Read more »
Justin Tuck said he was feeling better than he was yesterday. But Tom Coughlin was hoping that he’d be even further along.
“Today was not what we wanted,” Coughlin said. “He’s not quite as nimble and nifty as we had hoped. We’ll have to see, but I actually thought he would work today.”

The timetable for him and some of the club’s other young defensive linemen has been accelerated because of Jason Pierre-Paul’s recent back surgery.

It doesn't bother Justin Tuck that Hakeem Nicks is not at the team's OTAs. But he said that it is "kind of worrying" that Nicks has apparently not communicated with the Giants about his absence.
“That’s kind of worrying that you don’t communicate,” Tuck said. “Hakeem, he’s young. He may not understand the importance of that part of it. But I’m not worried about him being ready for...Read more »
