    Practice Report: No. 88 Back On Field

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/gia...k-on-the-field

    Excerpt: "Hakeem Nicks didn't just show up at the Timex Performance Center on Tuesday and speak with coach Tom Coughlin and reporters in the morning. He also participated in the first practice of the Giants' three-day minicamp in the afternoon.

    Nicks didn't appear to be going full-speed, but he worked during both individual and 11-on-11 drills. For the complete story on Nicks, click here.

    In other news from Tuesday's practice:

    Rueben Randle and Jerrel Jernigan had been serving as the team's starting wide receivers during OTAs in the absence of Nicks and Victor Cruz. But Louis Murphy was paired with Randle when the Giants began 11-on-11 drills on Tuesday.

    Both Jernigan and Nicks eventually got snaps with the first unit as well. But Coughlin has spoken very positively about Murphy in recent weeks, and it appears the 26-year-old speedster, who played for the Carolina Panthers last season, may be climbing up the depth chart.

    Coughlin sounded relatively pleased with his team as a whole following the nearly two-hour practice on Tuesday.

    "We had good energy," Coughlin said. "Good energy today." Read more...

    Jernigan is a slot guy. It is not surprising at all that Murphy is paired on the outside with Randle rather than JJ. Now if someone goes ahead of JJ in the slot in 3 WR sets that would qualify as JJ being passed on the depth chart. But not in 2 receiver sets. According to Gilbride JJ and Murphy are not in competition with each other.
    Forget it.

    I didn't expect Cruz to be here without a contract. at any rate hes not here so it opens the door a little more for younger guys to step up.

    its a perfect opportunity for JJ to finally be spectacular.

    i saw it as he'd be practicing because he missed OTA's, not because of an injury he has, but moreso because an injury he HAD. him missing the OTAs was precautionary imo. that wouldnt mean he'd avoid football activity from here on though from how i rationalize it. just me tho. wouldnt have surprised me at all if he were to ride the bike.
    and, from what i read, while he did participate in team drills and the 11v11 and 7v7s etc, reporters noticed he wasnt going full bore and was still somewhat cautioned
