STARTERS READY TO GO IF CALLED ON
Other than the rookie class, last week's preseason opener featured most of the team's projected starters on the sideline. With only two preseason games remaining, the starters are likely to see some playing time in at least one of the two contests. But on Wednesday morning, coach Brian Daboll was not ready to decide whether or not that would come during Friday night's matchup against the Panthers.
"Just the same thing as during the regular season, that's what we'll do," Daboll said. "We'll go through practice, meet with the medical staff, meet with the coaches and then make our decision," he told the media prior to practice."
Tyrod Taylor started last week's game in Detroit before ceding the reigns to Tommy DeVito, who took a majority of the snaps under center. This left Daniel Jones watching the entire game from the sideline. While it is unclear if he'll see any action against Carolina, Jones told reporters he'll be ready to go.
"I'm always preparing to play," the quarterback said Wednesday. "That's obviously Dabs' call. I think we're all preparing to play, and he'll make a decision on that. Like you said, he's told us we're going to play in the preseason, so to prepare and get ready to do that."
HISTORY VS. PANTHERS
The New York Giants and Carolina Panthers have met 13 times since their first matchup in 1996. The two teams have faced off at MetLife Stadium in each of the last two seasons, with the Giants emerging victorious in both contests. The Giants and Panthers last played in the preseason in 2011, when Carolina picked up the 20-10 victory.
