CB Thomas, S Johnson new Giants injured
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The New York Giants’ training camp injury list keeps growing.
Starting cornerback Terrell Thomas, safety Michael Johnson and free agent receiver Tim Brown all did not practice on Thursday.
Thomas had a minor leg injury. Johnson had back spasms and Brown had groin and hamstring injuries. Receiver Derek Hagan spent about a minute or two on the ground after being hit in the head by safety Michael Greco on a pass play at the University at Albany.
Starting cornerback Corey Webster (buttocks), Pro Bowl guard Chris Snee (knee) and Pro Bowl receiver Steve Smith (groin) also remain sidelined along with receiver Sinorice Moss (groin) and four tight ends, including starter Kevin Boss (ankle and hamstring).
The other tight ends who are out are Travis Beckum (hamstring), Scott Chandler (hip flexor) and Jake Ballard (hamstring).
Chandler and Ballard were sent to New York for MRIs.
Coach Tom Coughlin said it is likely that Bear Pascoe will be the only tight end available for Monday night’s preseason opener against the Jets at the New Meadowlands Stadium.
Coughlin scoffed at the idea of signing more tight ends.
“Do you know where we can find them?” he said. “You know how many teams in the league are looking for tight ends? Seriously, you saw when Dallas got just about wiped out the other night. It’s a nice idea but it’s not novel.”
The players will go out to dinner with the coaches on Thursday night as part of Coughlin’s annual training camp bonding activity.
Coughlin refused to say where the dinner would be held.
“Don’t show up at the same restaurant,” he told the media.
