Tuesday Morning Update: Farewell to Albany?
John Fennelly , Lead Writer
Today marks the Giants’ final workout of the summer at UAlbany. They will come back down the Turnpike tomorrow and resume the remainder of their preseason workouts at their headquarters at TIMEX.
Will today be the last Albany sees of the Giants? Both CEO John Mara and head coach Tom Coughlin are proponents of getting the team away for camp and each has complimented UAlbany for their support and hospitality. But UAlbany does not have an indoor facility for the Giants to train in inclement weather, and with the growing number of teams opting to stay home for training camp, the Giants may just have to scrap the trip for logistical purposes.
Yesterday’s practice had a few absences due to injury, but LB Michael Boley’s hamstring is one that is beginning to wear on Coughlin:
“We’re scratching our head on that one. I just keep looking at time going by. It’s not a very good subject.”
LB Jacquian Williams (hip), OT James Brewer (back) and CB Michael Coe (hamstring) also did not participate. DTs Martin Parker (back) and Shaun Rogers (leg) were sent to NYC to be evaluated at the Hospital for Special Surgery. More to come on that.
