Sources: Third-round pick Aaron Robinson had core muscle surgery late in the spring. The young CB hasn't been on the field practicing yet at training camp, but has been making progress. This kind of procedure usually involves a six-week recovery timetable. Robinson shouldn't be far off.

The Giants signed veteran LB Todd Davis. He has started 69 career games for the Saints, Broncos and Vikings. Giants have been shorthanded at ILB with Blake Martinez on the Covid list and Reggie Ragland (hamstring) on NFI. Tae Crowder and Carter Coughlin have been running as the ILBs with the first-string defense.

Saw Saquon Barkley running routes, cutting hard and sprinting full speed on Thursday. Coach Joe Judge said he's "very pleased" with where he's at. He added that Barkley is at the point where he is "mirroring our practices" to build up confidence for when he returns.

The Giants practice Saturday will be in Newark, NJ as part of the NFL's "Back Together Saturday" initiative. It is not open to the public, but local HS, Pop Warner and youth programs will be in attendance. Coach Joe Judge explained that it's "important" to get out in the community and do this, in part, because not everyone gets the opportunity to go to games.

Worst case seems to have been avoided on this Shane Lemieux knee injury, per source. Sigh of relief for Giants and their offensive line. Lemieux, a projected starter at left guard, will undergo further evaluation over next few days but it's not believed to be season-ending. Coach Joe Judge says they will know more in the next 24-48 hours.

The Giants are expected to re-sign RB Alfred Morris early next week, per source. The veteran RB averaged 4.3 ypc last season in nine games. Extra insurance with Saquon Barkley (knee) still uncertain for Week 1.

Benjamin rips Judge, accuses HC of 'sabotage'

Kelvin Benjamin, who was released Wednesday before the first practice of Giants training camp, said he thought coach Joe Judge was doing everything to "kind of sabotage the situation."

While in-person interviews (socially distanced) were back, Giants training camp still wasn't completely normal, especially for unvaccinated players. And there were plenty! They had to wear a special mouth shield over their helmet, masks once their helmets were of and even eat outdoors. NFL clearly has made life inconvenient for unvaccinated.

As he begins Year 2 as Giants coach, Joe Judge is taking a patient approach to the recovery of star running back Saquon Barkley, looking more at the "long term" instead of rushing him back to the field.
