Giants undrafted WRs Corey Washington and Marcus Harris are expected to get some work with the first-team offense in Friday's fourth preseason game.

It's expected to come at the expense of Jerrel Jernigan, who is in danger of being cut. Washington has been the Giants' best receiver this summer, reeling in all seven of his targets for 116 yards and three scores. Washington is fully expected to make the 53-man roster. Harris is likely competing with Mario Manningham.

Larry Donnell remains the favorite to start at tight end Week 1.

It speaks to the Giants' state of the position. A former UDFA out of Grambling, Donnell can't run and has three career catches. Expect him to rotate with Daniel Fells, Kellen Davis and Adrien Robinson. It's a fantasy black hole.

Peyton Hillis (foot, ankle) has been out of practice for more than two weeks.

Hillis is in a battle with Michael Cox and Kendall Gaskins for the third running back spot behind Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams. He won't win the job without getting back on the field soon. The painfully slow Hillis has averaged 3.58 YPC over his last 319 NFL carries.

NJ.com believes UDFA WR Corey Washington will "almost certainly" make the final roster.

The 6'4/215 Washington has come from tiny Newberry College to emerge as one of the stars of Giants camp. Per beat man Jordan Raanan, people inside the organization are intrigued by his unique ability to make plays in the air. We've seen that in each of the three preseason games, as Washington has posted a 7-116-3 line on seven targets. He'll likely open the season as the Giants' No. 5 wideout and should be on deep Dynasty radars.

Giants second-year S Cooper Taylor will undergo foot surgery and may miss the season.

Coach Tom Coughlin said injured reserve is a possibility. Taylor suffered the injury in the Giants' second preseason game, and it's believed to be to his sesamoid bone. It's the same bone MLB Jon Beason hurt. Taylor was competing for a hybrid linebacker-type role on defense, as a bigger safety at 6'4/228.

NJ.com's Jordan Raanan believes it's "not looking good" for Odell Beckham (hamstring) to be ready for the regular season.

We're considering Beckham "out indefinitely" after his latest hamstring setback. With Jerrel Jernigan not earning points from the coaching staff in camp, Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle should open the year as target monsters in New York's shaky passing attack. Beckham isn't worth a flier in re-draft leagues.

Odell Beckham (hamstring) has been ruled out for the Giants' third preseason game Friday.

The Giants are saying Beckham didn't suffer a setback. But being that he practiced last week and came up lame in Monday's practice, forcing him to ride the stationary bike Tuesday, there's no other way to term it than as a setback. Beckham might end up getting some run with the backups in the fourth preseason game simply because he's missed so much time and is far behind.

Odell Beckham (hamstring) is not practicing on Tuesday.

Beckham returned to practice last week after battling a hamstring for much of the spring and all of training camp up to that point. He lasted a week before re-injuring the hamstring in yesterday's practice while running a pass route. Beckham has yet to appear in a preseason game and seems extremely iffy for this week's regular season dress rehearsal. Beckham is off the re-draft radar.

Victor Cruz says there's no reason to panic about the Giants' lackluster offensive showing this preseason.

"We have not shown a lot," Cruz said. "We haven’t given a lot of plays or tipped our hand on a lot of things that we have shown yet. It is still pretty base stuff. We just have to do a better job of executing." Cruz hasn't caught a single pass through three preseason games and dropped a deep ball over the weekend. Rueben Randle has one catch for 12 yards. The only receiver making any noise is UDFA Corey Washington, who has three scores. We still like Cruz as a high-volume pass catcher in OC Ben McAdoo's scheme that should fit Cruz well.

Odell Beckham exited Monday's practice early and may have experienced a setback with his hamstring.

Midway through practice, Beckham was running a route upfield and pulled up lame. He immediately left the field and watched the remainder of practice from the sideline. The Giants say Beckham is "fine," but it's obviously something to watch. If Beckham didn't experience a setback, he should play this week.

Retired RB David Wilson wants to compete in the triple jump for Team USA at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

In addition to football, Wilson was a track-and-field star at Virginia Tech. He's already begun training for the event, and plans to do most of his workouts back at his alma mater. Wilson's personal best mark in the event at college was 53 feet, 1 3/4 inches, while the qualifying mark for the 2012 Olympics was about 54 feet, 6 1/2 inches. Wilson has also been doing some broadcasting work.

Coach Tom Coughlin has not been impressed by Jerrel Jernigan this summer.

Asked if Jernigan's progress from 2013 carried over, Coughlin responded, "Not necessarily." With Odell Beckham sidelined for a couple weeks earlier in camp, Jernigan was given a big opportunity in three-wide sets. He didn't take advantage of it. Meanwhile, UDFA WRs Corey Washington and Marcus Harris have been camp stand-outs. Jernigan could be in danger of getting cut.

Giants MLB Jon Beason (foot) is "still on track" for Week 1.

Beason is even pushing for preseason snaps. Considering his injury history, he's unlikely to get them. Barring a setback, Beason will be ready for Week 1 after injuring his foot in mid-June.

ESPN's Dan Graziano considers it a "certainty" that Rashad Jennings gets the "bulk" of the Giants' Week 1 carries.

Judging by Jennings' ADP, fantasy owners have long been operating under this assumption. We agree, though the "bulk" might not include goal-line looks, at least some of which appear to be ticketed for rookie Andre Williams. That severely eats into Jennings' upside.
Aug 18 - 1:33 PM

Giants S Cooper Taylor suffered a "significant" foot injury in New York's second preseason game.

Taylor has been competing for a linebacker-type role in the Giants' sub-packages. Coach Tom Coughlin called the injury "extensive," and clarified that it's to Taylor's sesamoid bone. No timetable has been given for his return.
