New York Giants Minicamp 2021: Day One News Roundup

Giants minicamp

The New York Giants’ minicamp began this Tuesday with full attendance from the 90-man roster, not including those known to be rehabbing injuries. After an offseason spent wondering what New York’s retooled offense will look like, fans finally got a glimpse at Daniel Jones‘ new weapons.

Here are the biggest storylines of the day.

Kadarius Toney

The odd start to Kadarius Toney’s Giants career is apparently far from over. The first-round wide receiver left practice early on Tuesday with what appeared to be a minor injury. He slipped after making a catch early in the day, was checked on by trainers and soon headed indoors. It is unknown whether Toney will be limited during the remainder of camp.

Toney has yet to make it through an entire practice. He was limited in rookie minicamp because of an issue with his cleat size, practicing with one shoe on for part of the day before sitting on the sidelines, and was not present at optional OTAs last week.

Before the injury, Toney showed off his trademark speed and looked confident in his route-running. He also worked on punt returns and made headlines with this seemingly effortless 50-yard throw:

 

Saquon Barkley and Other Non-Participants

ESPN’s Jordan Raanan reported that Saquon Barkley is unlikely to make an appearance at minicamp.

Barkley continues to rehab a torn ACL suffered against the Bears in Week 2 last year. Head Coach Joe Judge said that the Giants “are going to make sure that we take Saquon’s rehab at the correct rate for his individual body and injury.”

Devontae Booker, a free agent signee from the Raiders, took reps in his place. Booker could see high usage if Barkley remains limited in the early part of the season.

Newcomers John Ross and Kyle Rudolph were also kept off the field by injuries. Ross was last seen on the field Week 3 of last year, then with the Bengals. The former first-round receiver has been plagued by injuries his entire career but retains the speed that made him a prized draft prospect. In an offense overflowing with wideouts, he could see a resurgence now that there is less pressure on his performance.
