Giants’ Brian Daboll updates injuries, competitions for Week 2 of camp

The New York Giants enter Week 2 of their 2023 training camp on Monday, with opening remarks from head coach Brian Daboll followed by another workout in shorts.

The weather is expected to be much more seasonable temperature-wise for the next four days, with little to no precipitation, so the Giants can expect to get some serious work in.

Daboll began by addressing some injuries.

Linebacker Jihad Ward (undisclosed but not considered serious) and tight end Ryan Jones (knee) will sit out again and center J.C. Hassenauer (torn triceps) will require surgery and be out long term. The injury was sustained during practice on Sunday.

Daboll said the rotation at center going forward would be John Michael Schmitz, Ben Bredeson, Shane Lemieux and Jack Anderson.

After making his impressive return on Sunday, wide receiver Sterling Shepard (knee) will not practice on Monday, which is part of his rehab schedule.

Like everyone else who witnessed it, Daboll was impressed by the one-handed interception by safety Jason Pinnock at the end of Sunday’s practice.

Daboll addressed the progress of first-round selection Deonte Banks, saying they are loading the corner up early on in camp.

In addition, the coach said he was going to continue to let jobs be won via competition on the field.

Asked what improvements he plans to make in Year 2 as the Giants’ head coach, Daboll joked, “my weight’, which he says he has not done a good job in managing.
