Giants Escape With No Major Injuries And Are Getting Healthy Again:

From Ralph Vacchiano:

Maybe, just maybe, the Giants are starting to get healthy.

Tom Coughlin said today the Giants came out of the first preseason game in relatively good shape, injury wise. Even better, their long list of players on the sidelines are starting to get ready to get back on the field.

Cornerbacks Corey Webster (hip) and Aaron Ross (leg) have both been cleared to begin working in individual drills when the Giants return to Albany tomorrow. Wide receiver Steve Smith (knee) is expected back at practice, too.

Meanwhile, guards Rich Seubert (shoulder) and Chris Snee (leg) could be limited this week. They had practiced last week, but were surprise additions to the inactive list last night.

One player we neglected to ask about: DT Chris Canty, who has missed more than a week with a hamstring injury. I’m sure we’ll get more on that one for you tomorrow.

Also, from the forgotten-but-not-lost department, Coughlin said that DT Rocky Bernard – – he of the four-year, $16 million free-agent contract – – could come off the non-football-injury list (NFI) this week. He will begin to do some work, possibly even in individual drills. But since he’s been out all camp with a hamstring injury, Coughlin said Bernard will take his time in his return.

“Nobody comes back and jumps right in,” Coughlin said. “We’re going to have to work him in slow.”
