Giants' Cooper Taylor: Out until training camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Taylor has undergone sports hernia surgery and will be sidelined until training camp, reports.

Taylor was working with the Giants' first-team defense at free safety earlier this spring, but will now be sidelined after his latest surgery. Typically, sports hernia surgery requires 4-to-6 weeks of recovery time, and the Giants open training camp in five weeks. That puts Taylor on the fringe of being ready once camp starts, but until then, teammates Nat Berhe, Bennett Jackson and rookie third-rounder Darian Thompson figure to benefit from extra practice reps.

Giants' Victor Cruz: Training camp return targeted
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Cruz did not participate in team drills during the Giants' first day of OTAs on Monday, reports.

Cruz was seen working with team trainers on the sideline during Monday's session, after which head coach Ben McAdoo said "the goal is to have Cruz back for training camp." Following a significant knee injury and subsequent calf injury, Cruz hasn't played since October of 2014, so the Giants are rightfully exercising caution and holding him out of team drills for the time being. While Cruz is limited to individual work, rookie second-rounder Sterling Shepard should continue to receive a thorough introduction to the Giants' offense.

Giants' Jasper Brinkley: Competing for starting MLB role
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Brinkley is in the conversation for starting MLB for the Giants, Ralph Vacchiano of Daily News reports.

Brinkley is entering his seventh NFL season, and second with the Giants. New York moved to upgrade the middle linebacker position this offseason with the signing of free agent Keenan Robinson, who remains the frontrunner for the starting role. Despite bringing in competition for the position, the team was not necessarily unhappy with Brinkley's production last year (67 tackles, four forced fumbles, one sack), and he could see an increase in playing time if he shows improvement during his second campaign in the Giants' defensive system. He's also proven more durable than Robinson over the course of their respective careers, with the 28 games the latter has missed over four seasons easily dwarfing the pair of contests that Brinkley has been sidelined for over his six campaigns. In addition to Robinson, Brinkley's competition for the starting job also includes B.J. Goodson, and Kelvin Sheppard.

Giants' Keenan Robinson: Good chance to start at MLB
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Robinson has done well in offseason workouts and is a likely candidate for the Giants' starting MLB spot, Ralph Vacchiano of Daily News reports.

Robinson was signed as a free agent in March after spending the first four years of his career with the Redskins. He appears to be the favorite to open the season as the starter in the middle, but his playing time will largely depend on his health. Since he entered the league in 2012, Robinson has only played in 36 of a possible 64 games, and has never played more than 13 games in a single season. Along with staying healthy, he'll also have to fend off Jasper Brinkley, B.J. Goodson, and Kelvin Sheppard for the starting spot.

Giants' Mykkele Thompson: Participating in offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Thompson (Achilles) has taken part in the Giants' offseason program over the past few weeks, Jordan Raanan of Advanced Media reports.

Thompson tore his Achilles and was placed on injured reserve during the 2015 preseason, but the fact that he's running and cutting in on-field drills indicates he's recovering nicely. It's unclear if he's back to full health at this time, but he seems to be well on his way to being fully recovered for the start of the 2016 season.
