Larry Donnell is dealing with Achilles' tendinitis in his left foot.

There was concern when Donnell was spotted in a walking boot Monday, but the Giants are nonplussed. Per coach Tom Coughlin, it's something Donnell has dealt with since college. Perhaps he'll miss some more practices over the next two months, but he should be ready to rock for training camp.

Odell Beckham is dealing with a sore hamstring in OTAs.

It's eyebrow raising because of how much time Beckham's right hamstring cost him in 2014, but this week's issue is with his left. The G-Men have deemed OBJ's absence "precautionary," and there's no reason to doubt that. Provided he stays healthy, Beckham will challenge for No. 1 overall receiver status this season.

Larry Donnell was spotted with his left foot in a walking boot Monday.

It's a new injury for Donnell, who was watching OTAs from the sideline. We'll have more details once coach Tom Coughlin addresses the media. For now, there's no reason to believe Donnell is battling a serious issue.

Giants DE Damontre Moore added weight this offseason.

Moore showed up to OTAs at 255, about ten pounds heavier than his playing weight last season. By bulking up, the Giants are hoping Moore can be an every-down player. He logged 5.5 sacks in a part-time role last season. Even at 255, Moore is still one of the lightest players on New York's defensive line.

Larry Donnell focused on improving his blocking technique over the offseason.

Donnell came out of nowhere last season to solidify the Giants' tight end spot, flashing signs of dominance as a pass catcher in the red zone. But his blocking -- 63rd out of 67 qualifying TEs at PFF -- was a big weakness, leading to decreased playing time down the stretch. Donnell spent all offseason working on his hand placement in hopes of earning more snaps and being an every-down contributor.

Victor Cruz (patellar tear) said he's "about 80 percent there" with his rehab.

"I think it's just a matter of continuing to build the strength for the last leg of it," Cruz said Wednesday. "I’ve been running some routes for about two weeks now, and there’s been no pain, no swelling or anything like that, which are all good signs." It's a very optimistic take from Cruz, as we'd expect from a guy going through rehab. We'll have to wait until training camp to see if his optimism is warranted as he comes off one of the most serious injuries a player can have.

Tests on Giants LE Robert Ayers revealed no structural damage to his ankle.

The Giants can breathe a sigh of relief after Ayers was carted off the field at Wednesday's OTA practice. Although 2009 first-round pick Ayers never developed into a big-time pass rusher, he's an excellent run stopper at left end.
May 27 - 8:16 PM

Giants S Cooper Taylor played with the first team at OTAs on Wednesday.

Taylor got the majority of snaps at free safety with Nat Berhe (calf) sidelined. Taylor likely would have worked with the second team had Berhe been healthy. Berhe remains the favorite to start opposite rookie SS Landon Collins.

Victor Cruz (knee) said he’s still on track for Week 1.

Cruz has been setback-free to this point in his rehab. He’s progressed to running routes and expects to be ready for training camp, though he remains a candidate to start out on active/PUP. Cruz said he was 75 percent healthy earlier this month.

Giants DE Robert Ayers was carted off the field at Wednesday's OTAs practice with a left ankle and knee injuries.

Ayers is attempting to come back from a torn pectoral after racking up five sacks in 12 games last season while playing stout run defense. The Giants are counting on him to lead the rotation at left end before ceding passing-down snaps to Damontre Moore. We'll update Ayers' status when more is known.

First-round pick Ereck Flowers opened OTAs as the Giants' starting left tackle.

With LT Will Beatty out for the next 5-6 months with a torn pectoral, the Giants are forced to juggle their line. Flowers was expected to man the right tackle spot as a rookie, but will now protect Eli Manning's blind side. The rest of the Giants' front-five at OTAs: LG Justin Pugh, C Weston Richburg, RG John Jerry, RT Marshall Newhouse. RG Geoff Schwartz is still coming back from injury.
May 27 - 11:50 AM

Giants LT Will Beatty suffered a torn pec lifting weights and will be sidelined five months.

He's undergoing surgery Wednesday afternoon. The Giants devoted a lot of resources to shoring up their offensive line this offseason, and losing Beatty is a huge blow after he rebounded in 2014 following a down 2013 campaign. First-round rookie Ereck Flowers or Justin Pugh will likely be tasked with protecting Eli Manning's blind side into November. The front five is back to being a huge question mark for the G-Men.
May 20 - 3:01 PM

Cowboys RB Ryan Williams issued a warning about coming back from a patellar tendon tear.

Williams tore his patellar with the Cardinals in 2011 and was never the same. "Growing up I thought that the worst injury you could have is the ACL," he said. "Nah, when you tear that patellar tendon and your kneecap shifts to your thigh, that's something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy." It's a nugget to file away as we inevitably read glowing reports from the Giants all summer on Victor Cruz's rehab.

ESPN New York considers Giants CB Trumaine McBride the favorite for slot duties.

With Prince Amukamara and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie returning on the outside, McBride is competing with Mike Harris and Josh Gordy for the No. 3 corner job. McBride missed the majority of 2014 to thumb surgery, but will be healthy for the start of training camp.
May 16 - 6:30 PM

ESPN New York's Dan Graziano expects Justin Pugh to open the season as the Giants’ starting left guard.

Coach Tom Coughlin has yet to commit to rookie Ereck Flowers at right tackle, but Pugh is fully expected to move inside. The Giants offensive line projects as LT Will Beatty, LG Pugh, C Weston Richburg, RG Geoff Schwartz, and RT Flowers.
