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.

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.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin referred to first-round pick Odell Beckham's (hamstring) continued training camp absences as "more than a little disappointing."

Hamstring injuries have a frustrating tendency to linger, and Beckham has been battling his since OTAs. He's been shut down at training camp, only fielding punts. Beckham's absence has given Jerrel Jernigan more opportunity.

The New York Daily News sees rookie Odell Beckham as "more complement than competition" for a starting job in two-wide sets.

The Giants will play a lot of three wides, but Beckham won't be on the field in two-receiver packages, and a hamstring injury has bothered him since the spring, keeping the rookie behind. A rookie-year stat line similar to DeAndre Hopkins' in Houston last year (52-802-2) would be a success for "OBJ."

According to the New York Daily News, the "stage is set" for a Rueben Randle breakout in 2014.

With Hakeem Nicks out of the picture, Randle is starting opposite Victor Cruz. It sounds like the Giants plan to frequently throw the ball up to him in contested situations in the red zone and downfield. "I’ve got to play big," Randle said of his new role. "They’re going to allow me to do that. My job is to make that big play, whether it be in the end zone or down the field." Randle said he's "very confident" he'll score "double-digits in touchdowns." At 6'3/208, Randle projects as the main red-zone beneficiary with the Giants severely lacking talent at tight end. With an ADP in the ninth round, Randle is a tremendous value.

The Newark Star-Ledger believes rookie Andre Williams will open the season as the Giants' goal-line back.

Williams is currently listed as the No. 4 running back, but has been getting first-team reps with the goal-line offense. The Star-Ledger considers Williams the favorite for red-zone duties "as long as he holds on to the football." The Giants could use a three-back rotation behind Rashad Jennings, with David Wilson in a change-of-pace role and Williams as a short-yardage specialist.
Jul 26 - 3:36 PM

The Newark Star-Ledger expects David Wilson to be part of the Giants' weekly game plan as long as he remains healthy.

Wilson opened training camp as the second-team tailback behind Rashad Jennings, and has reportedly "looked explosive" in the receiving game. With the Giants moving to a West Coast offense, Wilson has an opportunity for a bigger role as a pass catcher in addition to change-of-pace duties. Rookie Andre Williams is expected to push Jennings for red-zone carries.

ESPN New York's Dan Graziano confirms Larry Donnell "seems to have emerged" as the most likely candidate for the Giants' starting tight end job.

Donnell was limited to special teams his first two seasons, but opened camp as the No. 1 tight end. Graziano believes the Giants "really, really like Donnell" and "don't have any clearly superior options." The Giants' tight end situation is almost certainly going to be a committee. Adrien Robinson has the most pass-game upside and will continue to push Donnell, with Daniel Fells also in the mix.
