On another host, steamy, humid day in New Jersey, the Giants took to the practice field while four player rode stationary bicycles on the sideline. Safeties Landon Collins (knee) and Cooper Taylor (toe) were joined by left tackle Will Beatty (torn pectoral) and cornerback Jayron Hosley (concussion) on the bikes. Rueben Randle (knee tendonitis) and Nat Berhe (calf) missed practice, while Prince Amukamara (groin) started out the day working with trainers on the sideline.
There was some good news for Hosley on the injury front as tests on his neck came back negative. Hosley is still in the NFL’s concussion protocol and will need to be cleared before he can resume practicing. Victor Cruz declared himself 100% healthy and expects to play against Jacksonville on Saturday night. He will likely be on a very limited snap count. General Manager Jerry Reese echoed Cruz’s optimism regarding playing in Saturday’s preseason game.
