7 Takeaways from Media Hour (8/7)

Posted Aug 7, 2014

Giants.com's Dan Salomone shares seven things he found out during Thursday's player interviews

1. WR Odell Beckham Jr. is getting close to returning.

> David Wilson's emotional farewell
The rookie first-round draft pick updated his hamstring issue, which has hampered him since spring football. “I am getting there,” he said. “It is a process, but I am taking it day by day. Like I said, we have been running a little more and just looking forward to getting back out there.”

2. Ones and twos could play more in second preseason game.
With last weekend’s Hall of Fame Game against Buffalo, the Giants have an extra preseason game this year. Starters and top backups typically play an increased number of reps in the second preseason game, but because of the atypical schedule this year for the Giants, head coach Tom Coughlin was asked how much they will play. “Our guys will play the same amount or maybe a little bit more than they did before,” he said. “I still want to see, if we can, everyone who is dressed. If they are able to play, I would like to see them all.”

3. LB Jacquian Williams is more confident.
A healthy Williams is entering his fourth NFL season and looking to become a consistent starter on defense. He’s getting there, says defensive coordinator Perry Fewell. “Just confidence in his run fits,” Fewell said about Williams’ progress from his rookie year to now. “Confidence in his coverage ability, his knowledge of his assignments, executing his assignments with speed, coming back with feedback, knowing the other positions, saying, ‘I know he was supposed to be here, this is what I did,’ and being able to have a good football conversation about what occurred on that play.”

>> What else the players had to say?

4. CB Prince Amukamara is coming, but he’s not the second coming yet.
Playing opposite the talented Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in the preseason opener, Amukamara was tested often as the Bills kept throwing his way. But he responded well. Fewell talked about how much his cornerback has improved, referring to a 2011 Eagles game when Amukamara notched an interception on his first play in the NFL. “I remember his first play as a rookie against DeSean Jackson, I think it was, and he went up and snatched one out of the air,” Fewell recalled. “I was like, ‘Whoa.’ We thought it was the second coming. He is coming, he’s not the second coming yet. He is coming and, again, with each opportunity that he takes in practice to improve that skill, he can be as good as he would like to be.”

5. “The Quiet Assassin” makes Rolle happy. Now that the Giants have a top slot corner in Walter Thurmond III, known as “The Quiet Assassin,” some of the pressure is taken off Rolle, who has been asked to play all over the field at times in the past. Now Rolle can focus on being a true safety, which makes him very happy. “Yes, it does,” Fewell joked. “Any time I want to put him in his place, I say, ‘I’m going to put you back at nickel.’”

6. WR Marcus Harris likes soup. Harris, who is putting together an impressive training camp and preseason so far, is nicknamed “Soup,” given to him by his former high school teammate and Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin. Harris spent last season on the practice squad but is now taking some reps with the starters. “I dreamt about it every day,” he said. “But I treated my practice squad reps like they were game reps so that hopefully one day I could get first-team reps like I did yesterday.”

7. LB Jon Beason is running. After the middle linebacker injured his foot in the spring, he set his sights on the Sept. 8 regular-season opener in Detroit for his return. Now a month out from the target date, Coughlin was asked about his status, to which he responded, “Well, he is running, which is a good thing.” As far as if Beason is on pace for Week 1, Coughlin said, “We’ll see.”
