Wide receiver John Ross returned to the field on Wednesday.
Ross, an offseason acquisition, has been on injured reserve with a hamstring injury he suffered in training camp and which forced him to miss the entire preseason. The Giants have three weeks to activate Ross or keep him on I.R.
The timing of Ross' return could prove to be fortuitous because wideouts Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton each injured their hamstrings against Atlanta. Their status for the New Orleans game, as well as that of left guard Ben Bredeson, who has a hand injury, is uncertain.
"We'll kind of get a better feel today," coach Joe Judge said. "I would say, obviously, today is a walkthrough. If this was a full-speed day, we wouldn't see these guys in full-speed action. We have a little bit more time going into the game and stuff like that. We'll see coming out today and how tomorrow looks right there."
