RB Peyton Hillis returns to practice

Posted Aug 24, 2014

RB Peyton Hillis was back at practice today after injuring his foot and ankle on Aug. 6


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. –
Running back Peyton Hills practiced today for the first time since injuring his foot and ankle on Aug. 6. And how did that make him feel?

“Oh my goodness, it was nice,” Hillis said. “It was good to be out there with the guys again, just fun. I’m looking forward to hopefully playing this week (in the preseason finale vs. New England).”

Hillis missed the last three games and wasn’t certain when he would return to the field.

>> 5 THINGS WE LEARNED AT PRACTICE

“It’s very tough,” he said. “It’s tough because you have to make the roster kind of deal, so you want to get out there but you physically can’t. It’s that mental battle you have to play with yourself.

“It didn’t start to feel better until the beginning of last week. We started running a little bit, but it wasn’t used to a workload like I had today. I’m going to come back out tomorrow and see how it feels and go in there and talk to (the athletic trainers).”

Hillis admitted he thought about his foot at the beginning of practice.

“You do because, especially with my injury, you have that fear of pushing off heavily and stuff like that,” he said. “But I’ve been around long enough that I try to tempo myself to where I won’t re-injure it.”

Tom Coughlin was asked how Hillis looked.

“You know, rust,” Coughlin said. “But he was out there, he was going.”

>> 3 STANDOUT PLAYERS FROM SUNDAY'S PRACTICE

A seven-year NFL veteran, Hillis joined the Giants last Oct. 16, after the team lost several running backs to injuries. He played in seven games and rushed for 247 yards and two touchdowns. If healthy, he is likely the team’s third running back behind Rashad Jennings and rookie Andre Williams.

But his attitude is similar to that of a rookie trying to make his first pro roster.

“That’s the mindset you’ve got to have,” Hillis said. “You never know what’s going to happen. You never know what upstairs (coaches and management) is going to do, so you just have to go out there and do your best.”

He hopes to play against the Patriots, both to strengthen his case for a roster spot and to get some game action before the regular season.

“A lot of it is just repetition, getting in there, learning your reads in the run game and in the pass game,” he said. “Get stuff down so it becomes second nature. All that takes is getting in there and doing it. You can’t be on the sideline doing that.”

  • Rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who has yet to play in a preseason game, continued to work on the side.

    “I would like the next time someone asks me that to have him out here practicing, so I don’t have to answer it,” Coughlin said when he was asked if he is just hoping to have Beckham for the regular season at this point. “You know as much as I do. You are out here watching him every day, too. That’s all I can tell you. I would like to see the young man practice before he got into the regular season. That would certainly be a good thing.”

  • Another wide receiver Trindon Holliday, who has missed most of training camp with a hamstring injury, ran and did some individual work. Coughlin wouldn’t speculate on Holliday’s possible participation in the New England game.

    “We will see what tomorrow brings,” he said.

  • Right guard Brandon Mosley came out to practice, but quickly left the field when his back tightened up. John Jerry took the first-team snaps in Mosley’s absence.

  • Jon Beason has missed the entire preseason because of a foot injury he suffered in June. Coughlin was asked if Beason is close to coming off the physically unable to perform list.

    “I don’t ask every day, they don’t tell me every day,” Coughlin said. “He works on the side and occasionally I will get close enough to him to ask him how he is doing, or in a meeting I will say something to him. His responses are all positive – ‘I feel good. We are going to do this and this today, and we are going to do more of this the next day.’ Only one time did he say, ‘I am a little sore today.’ That is the only time I ever heard it. Everything else has been stuff that you would think would be encouraging.”

    Beason has said repeatedly that he expects to play in the regular-season opener on Sept. 8 in Detroit.

  • Cornerback Zack Bowman, who injured his upper arm in the victory over the Jets on Friday, practiced today. The other three players hurt in the game did not – guard Geoff Schwartz (toe), wide receiver Marcus Harris (shoulder) and defensive tackle Markus Kuhn (ankle). Also sitting out were offensive linemen James Brewer (back) and Charles Brown (shoulder)…Cornerback Jayron Hosley (foot) returned to practice…Prince Amukamara (groin) did individual work on the side.
