Former Giant LB Carl Banks says he never took a painkilling shot during his 12-year NFL career (Myers) “I never took a shot as a professional athlete ever,” he said. “The time I played, I know for a fact that our training staff with the Giants wasn’t big on shooting guys up.

If he loses out, Nassib isn’t going to be worth keeping as a developmental third-stringer. Nassib struggled in three preseason games last year and needs to perform well in training camp to avoid getting cut.
