Good Morning, New York Giants Fans!

First Sterling Shepard, then Corey Coleman, then Brittan Golden…who’s next on the injury list knock on wood. Maybe the Odell Beckham Jr. curse is real.

The Giants are two practices into training camp and are already facing an uphill battle at the wide receiver position. Fortunately, GM Dave Gettleman will be bringing in several pass catchers to try out, including former draft pick while at Carolina, Kelvin Benjamin.

Several receivers the Giants should look at are Benjamin, Michael Crabtree, and Pierre Garcon. Three veterans that can pick up a starting workload and supplement the loss of impact players. Hopefully, Gettleman can find a serviceable replacement on a veteran deal.

However, I wouldn’t be surprised to see rookie Darius Slayton earn more reps and playing time, despite him dealing with a pulled hamstring at the moment. His speed and agility can be beneficial. He progressed very well during mini-camp after struggling with numerous drops early on in the offseason.

Aside from the receivers, the quarterbacks have started off rocky, but both looked far better in day two of practice. Daniel Jones has hit on numerous long-balls and finished Friday 9-of-12 with two impressive touchdown throws.
