Checking possible #NYG interest in vet S Tom Zbikowski, cut by Bears. I'm told maybe, but no talks btw 2 sides expected until after Wk 1

He's a better

version of Tyler Sash. Excellent Specials player.
He also was/is a pretty sure-handed punt

returner IIRC.
Just to elaborate on the Zbikowski tweet:  
Big Blue Blogger : 8/27/2013 11:54 am : link
" talks btw 2 sides expected until after Wk 1" means they don't want to guarantee his salary for the full year. Zbikowski is a vested vet. No point committing his full salary when better options may emerge.

glad Murphy is finally doing some work.  
Andy in Boston : 8/27/2013 12:22 pm : link
If Moore, Murphy, Hosely, Cruz, Webster can rest all of this week/weekend, than practice fully next week....we should be in good shape for Game 1. You would have Diehl and Baas probbaly OUT and JPP questionable. Overall, that's not bad.

JPP just put a ridiculous rush move to the inside of LG Mosley working with 2nd team. Also been with 1st team during this latest drill #nyg

Starters will play 12-15 snaps. #nyg

Ebenezer Samuel ‏@ebenezersamuel 6m
Looks like 12-15 snaps for first team offense Thursday. Coughlin says even if they don't show what he wants, that's almost certainly it.

Tom Cougjhlin said his QB rotation vs. Pats is Eli, Nassib, Carr and Painter. Hopes to get all four in game. #nyg

Ebenezer Samuel ‏@ebenezersamuel 6m
Sounds like no Damontre Moore this game. cooper Taylor should debut though

Conor Orr ‏@ConorTOrr 6m
The QB order will be Eli, Nassib, Carr, Painter. #nyg

Ebenezer Samuel ‏@ebenezersamuel 7m
Was just a contact for Louis Murphy

Conor Orr ‏@ConorTOrr 7m
We'll see a few combos at o line on Thursday. #nyg

Ebenezer Samuel ‏@ebenezersamuel 7m
Coughlin also saying there will be plenty of combinations on offensive line Thursday .

Louis Murphy just had a contact pop out. Can totally relate there. Just a product of the grind. #nyg

Mignt not see Damontre on Thursday. Cooper Taylor should get his first game reps #nyg

Cooper Taylor will see his first game action Thursday. Coughlin seemed pleased with how he looked. #nyg
good nassib deserves to be in

2nd since he has gotten the least amount of reps.

Victor Cruz's sneaks today. No protective boot. No crutches.

Cruz says he still experiences swelling in morning but its good after. Things looking good for Dallas.

Victor Cruz has kicked the boot + hopes to practice Monday. Believes he is on target and will play vs Cowboys

Nassib going 2nd? Excellent, will finally  
WeatherMan : 8/27/2013 3:13 pm : link
get to see him behind an OL that resembles something other than swiss cheese, he spent the 4th quarter of the first two preseason games running for his life and getting blasted for it.
Sneakers O'toole : 8/27/2013 3:14 pm : link
it should be interesting
Excellent news on Cruz  
mrvax : 8/27/2013 3:16 pm : link
if he & the trainers aren't rushing him.
What's to rush?  
section125 : 8/27/2013 3:30 pm : link
Sounds like it is healing petty well, but let's not pull a Jeter or Nicks.
I anyone else concerned that they might be rushing JPP  
The Duke : 8/27/2013 3:39 pm : link
along a little too quickly? We need him badly, but I want to make sure he is 100% healthy and ready to play even if it means his missing the first couple of games. If he gets injured in practice now I'm going to be really pissed. Seems a little soon for him to be jumping into 11 on 11 drills and getting banged around already.
The trainers make the call if a player can return to practice.  
Ten Ton Hammer : 8/27/2013 3:43 pm : link
arcarsenal : 8/27/2013 3:43 pm : link

JPP is their most important defensive player coming off a very serious injury. I highly doubt they're rushing him. They're going to be as cautious as they need to be. If he felt good enough to jump into 11v11's today, that's great. He wouldn't have if he wasn't feeling ready to.
I don't think the trainers are rushing Cruz  
njm : 8/27/2013 3:53 pm : link
In fact, I think they are being conservative. He sounds to be right on track. And if Thursday was a playoff game, I'll bet he could suit up.

Brewer hasn't been on left side since last preseason. Never even played left side in college.

Ebenezer Samuel ‏@ebenezersamuel 2m
First time he was told he'd play LG was....yesterday.

Ebenezer Samuel ‏@ebenezersamuel 2m
Brewer says he hadn't played much left guard. But he says o line coach Flaherty feels like he's "a natural."

No need to Rush JPP  
mofti : 8/27/2013 6:30 pm : link
The d-line seems to be playing well without him. I would still activate him week one, but i would limit his snaps until he is 100% and in game shape.

James Brewer felt "crooked" at his new position but is straight-up happy to be on the field.
