Practice Report (8/5): Notes from the sideline


The Giants were back at practice for the third straight day and the ninth time this summer. It was the second straight day they were in pads - practice started at 5 p.m. with temperatures in the 70's. It was the final padded practice before the Giants used shells on Monday before leaving for Detroit later in the day.

* In the offensive line vs. defensive line 1-on-1's, Andrew Thomas did not lose a rep during the period.

* After two straight days of rest, Leonard Williams won his first rep back.

* Evan Neal is in concussion protocol, so Matt Peart got time at right tackle. In 1-on-1's, he won all three of his reps.

* The skill position players worked on 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 games near the goal line. Sterling Shepard scored a pair of touchdowns in the period. Later in practice, Shepard beat his man off the line and sprinted down the sideline and caught a deep ball from Tyrod Taylor.

* During the competitive team portions of practice, Brian Daboll put his offense in various situations to see how they would handle it. The first-team offense was stopped by the defense a play after Kayvon Thibodeaux stuffed a run for a loss. Darren Waller got free to catch a pass during the drive.

* The offense was given the ball on their own 1-yard line. On the drive, Taylor hit Sterling Shepard for a short gain and then the aforementioned deep pass down the sideline. A couple of plays later, he hit Collin Johnson over the middle with a nice touch pass.

* In the red zone, Daniel Jones got it into the end zone when he found Saquon Barkley.

* On another trip, the offense had Tyrod Taylor complete a touch pass to Jalyn Hyatt near the corner of the end zone.

* The defense held on a set of downs after two simulated sacks from Kayvon Thibodeaux and a pressure from Dexter Lawrence.

* On the final drive, Bobby Okereke broke up a pass, who was covering Darren Waller. The second-team offense also got sidetracked when Kobe Smith batted a ball at the line.
