1. Bowman opened practice with a pick.
On the first play of a windy practice at training camp, veteran cornerback Zack Bowman intercepted a deep pass from Eli Manning intended for wide receiver Rueben Randle. Bowman, who spent the last six seasons with the Chicago Bears, accelerated well to the ball to make an over-the-shoulder catch.>>View Bio

2. The tight ends produced. On the day tight ends coach Kevin M. Gilbride met the media and said the Giants need both a complete player and a specialist out of the group, Larry Donnell went out and made the offensive play of the day. The second-year tight end laid out for a pass from Ryan Nassib down the middle, somersaulting as he caught the ball. Earlier in the red zone, tight end Daniel Fells caught an Eli Manning touchdown through traffic in the end zone.

3. Manningham put in work. Mario Manningham is still shaking off the rust from missing good portions of the last two seasons with the 49ers because of lingering knee issues, but the wide receiver notched a few catches in today's team portion of practice. He wasn't making highlight grabs like the one he produced against the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI, but the team had to like seeing Manningham, now wearing No. 86, get into the mix.

4. Kuhn was everywhere. Everyone has nothing but positive things to say about defensive tackle Markus Kuhn at training camp, and you can see why on the field. Healthy, strong, and German as ever, Kuhn is making the most of every rep at practice. On Monday he even dropped back in coverage for a 7-on-7 drill.

5. Beckham and Grimble did not practice. Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., the Giants' first-round draft choice, and undrafted tight end Xavier Grimble were not out for practice at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.  Head coach Tom Coughlin said after practice that both rookies, who are dealing with hamstring issues, were "in treatment and went over to the doctor." >>Flashback: Giants Draft Odell Beckham Jr.
