2. Painter practiced with the second team.
Painter, who was 7-of-7 for 68 yards and threw the decisive 3-yard touchdown to Washington against Pittsburgh, was bumped up on Monday and practiced with the second team. Throughout organized team activities (OTAs), minicamp, and all of training camp thus far, Painter had been behind Ryan Nassib and starter Eli Manning in the quarterback rotation. After practice, coach Tom Coughlin said Painter earned his share of reps but will continue to go back and forth with Nassib at No. 2.
Washington may have made the most acrobatic play of the day, but I’d argue Manning and Randle produced the most skilled one of the afternoon. During 7-on-7 drills, Manning laid a perfect pass to Randle deep down the left sideline in between good coverage by cornerback Prince Amukamara and safety Stevie Brown. Randle added flair by hauling it in with one hand. This was the latest of a handful of smooth plays the quarterback and receiver have turned in at camp.
4. WR Odell Beckham Jr. worked in individual drills while Victor Cruz did not practice.
Beckham, the Giants’ rookie first-round draft choice, has been dealing with a hamstring issue since spring football but returned to the field today in a limited capacity. In addition to fielding punts -- which he has done at times in training camp -- Beckham participated in individual drills with his fellow receivers. Meanwhile, Cruz had the day off as he rested a sore knee but should be back on Tuesday.
5. Training camp went viral.
The morning started with Eli and Peyton Manning dropping their latest music video, “Fantasy Football Fantasy,” which Cruz later said he liked better than their first one, pointing out newly-retired Giants right guard Chris Snee’s cameo. That was only the beginning. From there, Giants President and Chief Executive Officer John Mara took the “Ice Bucket Challenge” to spread awareness for ALS, nominating Jets owner Woody Johnson and Patriots owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick to do the same. Capping the day, Miss USA Nia Sanchez attended Monday’s training camp practice at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. >> WATCH ELI MANNING'S RAP VIDEO
