Giants Injury Update: Jon Beason Nearing Return

New York Giants Linebacker Jon Beason is progressing through the rehabilitation of the sesamoid fracture in his great toe well, but suffered a minor setback this week. It was reported by Ebenezer Samuel that Beason has battled food poisoning this week and had to take the week off from his rehabilitation program.Beason suffered a sesamoid fracture in his great toe during OTA’s this summer and required surgery. The rehabilitation period for this injury is typically 3 months depending on how the athlete progresses. Beason has apparently been working more on cutting drills, which is a good sign for his progress. Beason’s bout with food poisoning is not going to harm his rehabilitation that much, besides from sitting out this week there have been no setbacks with his rehabilitation. The sesamoid bones in the foot are under the great toe and allow for tendons to run through the bones to assist the great toe in flexion. A fracture to these bones typically occurs while running and cutting. Beason has said tha

With time running out, Giants still trying to figure out wide receiver corps

The New York Giants are still trying to figure out what shape their wide receiver corps is going to take and they will get a stern test from the New England Patriots loaded secondary on Thursday night.

While cornerback Darrelle Revis likely will have a short night, bruiser Brandon Browner will play most of the game dues to a four game suspension that starts when the regular season begins.

The Patriots depth in the secondary will test the Giants young receivers and that’s exactly what coach Tom Coughlin wants.

Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle, Odell Beckham, and Jerrel Jernigan, who’s been practicing with the first team in Beckham’s place during training camp and preseason, look to be the top four with Mario Manningham battling Corey Washington and Preston Parker for the final spot.

“He’s [Manningham] had some spurts the last couple of weeks where he’s done some things on the practice field, but it hasn’t carried over into games,” Coughlin said, via ESPN.

“He’ll g

‘Madden 15′ Might Be Too Realistic With Eli Manning’s ‘Manning Face’

Technology has officially gone too far.
It’s one thing for Madden 15 to be realistic from the standpoint of having actual NFL playbooks and true-to-life skills ratings, but when EA Sports starts including the infamous “Manning Face” in its new video game, we’re that much closer to Skynet becoming self-aware.
Honestly, check out the actual photo and the Madden screengrab below, and try to tell which is which. Bet you can’t.

Eli Manning’s ‘Manning Face’ appears in Madden 15

It’s truly incredible how realistic video games are getting these days. Madden 15 dropped on Tuesday and EA Sports’ Madden Twitter account has been retweeting some of the awesome finds by game players. One of the best finds has to be Eli Manning making the infamous “Manning Face” in the game. How awesome is that? […]

Madden’s Eli Manning “Manning Face” Is Just As Glorious As The Real Thing

EA’s Madden may be a bit glitchy but those things can be patched over and fixed. Besides, it’s hard to fault Madden for its buggy physics when they have obviously been spending their time on much more important issues.
Issues such as ensuring that Eli Manning’s “Manning Face” is as accurate as possible. And boy, did EA deliver on “Manning Face.”

It is uncanny.

Giants really stuck it to the Eagles

It sounds like the Eagles were ready to snatch up kicker Brandon McManus if and when the Giants were going to cut him. Instead of cutting McManus, the Giants traded him to the Broncos for a bag of chips. Giants stuck it to #Eagles by basically giving McManus to Broncos for free. Unfortun for them, may be their best defensive play this year. — Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) August 27, 2014 This might be the only time the Giants actually beat the Eagles this season. var ACE_AR = {Site: ’898551′, Size: ’468060′, CallType: ‘IFRAME’}; Loading… ZergNet The post Giants really stuck it to the Eagles appeared first on Pro Football Zone.

New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin says the NFL is going the wrong way

Michael David Smith, Pro Football Talk:Giants coach Tom Coughlin says the NFL went in the wrong direction in its preseason extra point experiment.Coughlin says that if the idea is to make extra points a more exciting play, moving kicks back to the 15-yard line while keeping two-point conversion attempts at the 2-yard line wasn’t the right way to do it. Coughlin says the NFL should have moved all point-after attempts to the 1-yard line, to encourage coaches to go for two.Giants. com:With the Giants, Coughlin is 90-70 in the regular season and 8-3 in the postseason. The 90 victories are second in franchise history to Owen’s 151. Coughlin has led the Giants to two NFC East titles and five playoff berths. His eight postseason triumphs tie him with another Hall of Fame member, Bill Parcells, for the most ever by a Giants coach. Coughlin was the team’s wide receivers coach under Parcells from 1988-90.The Mara family who own the New York Giants are not in the habit of changing coaches. Fol…

Geoff Schwartz doesn’t need surgery, considered week-to-week

The New York Giants have announced that offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz is considered week-to-week with a toe injury.
Giants guard Geoff Schwartz had his dislocated right big toe examined by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte yesterday afternoon. Following the examination, it was determined that Schwartz will remain in a walking boot for approximately 7-10 days and then begin a rehabilitation program. After that, he will be evaluated on a week to week basis regarding his ability to return to football activities.
“This is just a minor setback,” said Schwartz. “I plan on attacking the rehab program so I can get back on the field as soon as possible with my teammates and help us win games.”

Eli Manning says offense ‘not all the way where we need to be’

As the regular season nears, New York giants quarterback Eli Manning said that the offense is still trying to find their way and that there are still a lot of corrections going on. Manning continues to say that learning the offense isn’t something that will happen overnight and won’t be mastered over one preseason. “You want everything done precisely, so we’re still, every day, we’re trying to get better at that,” said Manning, via the Boston Herald. “We need to be corrected on some things and do things more efficiently, so we’re getting there, we’re making small steps, but we’re probably not all the way where we need to be,” said the 33-year-old quarterback entering his 11th season. “I think there will always be things that we can improve on. It’s not something you’re going to master in four weeks. As the season goes on, we’ll know what we do well, we’ll progress, we’ll put new plays in, different things in, to attack certain defe

New York Giants: Who Makes the 53 Man Roster and Practice Squad

QUARTERBACKS (2)Eli ManningRyan NassibThe Giants usually do not like to carry 3 quarterbacks as they did last season. With another season under his belt, the Giants are hoping that Ryan Nassib will develop into a solid backup for Eli Manning.  Nassib expects to win the backup job and has shown a vast improvement from last season.  Regardless of who ends up winning the backup role, if Manning misses any games, the Giants will be in big trouble; so it’s Nassib’s job to lose.RUNNING BACKS (4)Rashad JenningsKendall GaskinsMichael CoxAndre WilliamsHard to imagine the Giants carry more than 4 running backs, so the battle for the final spot should and most probably will go down between Michael Cox or Kendall Gaskins. Rookie and 4th rounder Andre Williams is the wild card in my opinion. After leading the nation in rushing last season, Williams is out to prove to the entire league that he never should have lasted until the 4th round. Thus far, Williams hasn’t disappointed the Giants staff an…
