A few quick notes from the jog-through Friday morning:
All of the players were on the field except for Chris Snee and Tim Brown. Tom Coughlin said that Snee was inside rather than standing on the field and putting weight on his sore left knee.
“I feel better,” Snee said of the swelling in his knee. As for a timetable for his return, he said: “We’ll see. I just do what I’m told.”
Terrell Thomas participated in the walk-through with a sleeve on his left leg. He missed Thursday's practice with leg soreness. Corey Webster did not participate, although he did do some running up the hill next to the stadium field where the jog-through took place.
Michael Johnson said his back is feeling better. He participated in the jog-through after missing Thursday's practice and said he expects to play in Monday’s game. Derek Hagan also was back after being shaken up in Thursday's practice. He said his helmet hit the turf on a playin which Michael Greco broke up a pass to him and he was seeing stars for a few minutes. He said had the practice gone longer he would have returned and he expects to be out there
It looks like the Giants will go with an offensive line of Beatty, Diehl, O’Hara, Whimper and McKenzie left-to-right. Probably a good idea, especially when Eli Manning is on the field. You’re going to want to have as many veteran heads on that line as possible and without Snee or Seubert it’s better to have Beatty at tackle and move Diehl in than to have Whimper and Mitch Petrus as the starting guards. I’m sure Petrus and Adam Koets will get plenty of work once Eli leaves the game, though.
Victor Cruz was having trouble fielding punts again, but this time it was because he was looking straight into the sun. Unlike Aaron Ross and Antrel Rolle who were fielding the punts with him, Cruz is a wide receiver and does not have a visor on his facemask. He didn’t seem too concerned. “Hopefully at 8 o’clock at night there won’t be any sun issues,” he said, a nod to the starting time of Monday’s game.
