Rueben Randle saw a lot of red-zone looks during Thursday's practice.

As beat writer Jordan Raanan notes, it's "something we should probably get used to." At 6'3/208, Randle towers over fellow wideouts Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham. He's also shown strong catch-point ability in his career, making plenty of contested catches on his way to nine touchdowns on 60 receptions.

The Daily News projects Peyton Hillis as Rashad Jennings' direct backup.

David Wilson's career is in jeopardy, Andre Williams' pass-game woes are showing up and Michael Cox is a borderline NFL talent. It leaves the reliable but painfully slow Hillis as the next man up. The former Madden cover boy was getting some first-team reps in Thursday's practice.

Andre Williams continues to take the goal-line snaps at Giants camp.

Williams was originally spotted in first-team goal-line packages more than a week ago, and nothing has changed. It's a place the fourth-round rookie can contribute right away, as the 230-pound grinder has a ways to go in pass protection and as a receiver. Rashad Jennings has a potential vulture on his hands.

The Newark Star-Ledger expects the Giants to employ a running-back-by-committee approach this season, despite David Wilson's career-threatening neck injury.

The Giants' offseason certainly suggests they want to use more than one back. They signed Rashad Jennings, re-signed Peyton Hillis, drafted Andre Williams, and return sophomore Michael Cox. "I think we have some talented guys at that spot," coach Tom Coughlin said. "Rashad has done well. I think the young kid (Williams) has come along the more we have given him to do. Michael Cox has had his spots." Jennings' fantasy Average Draft Position currently sits at the end of round four. Frank Gore, deservedly, recently leapfrogged Jennings in ADP.

A source close to the situation told ESPN's Dan Graziano the Giants would be "very surprised" if David Wilson (neck) played for them again.

Graziano is essentially confirming an NJ.com report that Wilson "needs a miracle" to continue his career. Wilson will be re-checked by his surgeon Monday after suffering a neck burner on the heels of spinal fusion surgery. "As soon as I saw him walk off the field, I started to hurt," said starting RB Rashad Jennings. "Someone who's been working as hard as he has to get back on the field, when he has a little setback, it's frustrating as a friend, a brother and a teammate."

A source tells NJ.com that David Wilson (neck) "needs a miracle" to return to the field.

Wilson sustained a burner during Tuesday's practice, just a few months after undergoing spinal fusion surgery. His NFL career is now in serious jeopardy. The Giants are not expecting Wilson to get good news when he meets with his surgeon on Monday, leaving them with Andre Williams, Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox behind starter Rashad Jennings.

Giants RB David Wilson (neck) tweeted he passed all his physical examinations and was "fine."

Wilson left practice Tuesday after suffering a neck "burner." He will sit out the rest of the week before being reevaluated on August 4. Despite the clean bill of health, it is clear Wilson's neck will be a concern for the rest of his career. He is not worth a redraft pick.

David Wilson (neck) will sit out the rest of the week and be reevaluated August 4.

Wilson left Tuesday's practice early with a neck burner. He underwent initial tests yesterday, and it's been determined that he won't play in Sunday's preseason opener versus the Bills. Wilson will be looked at Monday by Dr. Frank Cammisa, the doctor who performed his neck surgery. The Giants are going to be extremely careful here. We don't advise using a re-draft pick on Wilson.

David Wilson will undergo tests after suffering a neck "burner" in Tuesday's practice.

NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reports the Giants "will be careful" with Wilson, which is probably the understatement of the century. It's extremely bad news for Wilson to have any issues with his surgically-repaired neck so soon after being cleared. If drafting early, make Wilson a late-round flier at your own risk.

David Wilson left Tuesday's training camp practice early with a neck burner.

A "burner" or "stinger" is an injury to the nerves in the neck or shoulder that produce a stinging sensation. Obviously, with Wilson, this is a major concern and not something to take lightly. Following practice, coach Tom Coughlin said "we were all praying" Wilson wouldn't suffer any setbacks. This qualifies as one. Recovery time can range, but Wilson won't be cleared to return until he's experiencing zero neck pain. We'll update Wilson when the Giants do.

Giants MLB Jon Beason (foot) was seen sprinting on a treadmill off to the side of training camp practice Tuesday.

Beason is just six weeks into his 12-week timetable, but appears to be making substantial progress. He wants to play in preseason games. We doubt the Giants will push him out there for meaningless exhibition snaps, but Beason sounds like he's on track for the opener. He remains on the active/PUP list.

Odell Beckham (hamstring) will miss at least another week after his MRI came back negative for a tear on Monday.

While it's good he doesn't have a tear, Beckham's strain has lingered since the spring and become a fairly major concern early in training camp. The Giants hope he'll be back by their second preseason game. OBJ is competing for snaps with Jerrel Jernigan behind Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. If he can't kick the injury, it's conceivable Beckham would open the season as the Giants' No. 4 receiver. We don't see much reason to take a flier on OBJ in re-draft leagues.
Jul 28 - 9:33 PM

Odell Beckham was absent from Giants practice Monday to undergo tests on his injured hamstring.

The move comes one day after coach Tom Coughlin expressed frustration with Beckham's slow recovery. Beckham is likely undergoing an MRI, which would give the Giants a much-better idea of when he might return. Beckham is falling behind as the Giants sort out their post-Hakeem Nicks receiver corps.

According to the Newark Star-Ledger, there's a "night and day" difference between Jason Pierre-Paul's camp performance this year and last.

Per reporter Conor Orr, JPP looks a "lot quicker off the edge." That's an absolute must for a team counting on Pierre-Paul to revive what was one of the league's most anemic pass rushes last season. Heading into the final year of his rookie contract, JPP is still only 25, and supposedly back to 100 percent health.

The Giants want Eli Manning to complete 70 percent of his passes this season.

It's a barrier breached only seven times in league history, most recently by Alex Smith in 2012 (who was benched). It's not even a vaguely realistic goal for a career 58.5 percent passer (an abysmal 57.5 in 2013), but shows just how serious the G-Men are about remaking their passing attack. Gone are long-developing downfield shots, and in are high-percentage quick passes.
