Head Coach Tom Coughlin

August 1, 2013

A: It rained on us. I was reminded by a couple of players that if we were in Albany, we didn't have any place to go, so we had to change our expression to that of well, were grateful, weve got a place to go.

Q: Can we have an update on Nicks?

A: He is being treated for a groin, its a day to day type thing.

Q: Was it maybe more serious than you initially thought?

A: I dont think so, they just want to quiet it down, make sure that he heals before he goes back out and continues to maybe make it worse.

Q: Is Cullen Jenkins here today?

A: Cullen was not, his grandmother passed away.

Q: Any thoughts on Adrien Robinsons progression from last season?

A: Well, I think hes making steady progress. You know, today I thought he practiced well, made some plays, and more importantly, from an assignment standpoint he did well, so, we look forward to having him continue that way because we also see Larry Donnell making a couple plays, so with those two big, young tight ends, they certainly do give us flexibility provided they can continue to improve.

Q: You gave Justin Pugh a few snaps with the ones today it looked like, mix them in a little?

A: Just a few, but, yeah, wed like to be able to do that. Basically, the first couple of groups are being interchanged every once and awhile, so youll see that.

Q: Are you getting impatient at all with Hakeem?

A: No. Certainly, I want to see him on the field and he wants to be on the field. Its frustrating, but Ive got to learn to control myself when it comes to that as well and just realize that you know what, hes trying like heck to get out there and he knows he needs to practice and work at it and he came in excited about being able to go and then he had this little groin injury, which I hope is not going to set him back for very long, but obviously theyre taking all the necessary precautions.

Q: Does Ryan Nassib throw the ball better inside? He looked better today throwing it.

A: I dont think that. I think hes got a strong arm. I dont think that had anything to do with it.

Q: How have the reps been with him and some of the other quarterbacks?

A: Theyre all working their way through it. They all get reps. He gets mostly all the reps with the threes.

Q: Any of the PUP guys close to coming back?

A: Thats kind of a wait and see. If I mentioned something and it doesnt happen So well all wait and see. Hopefully sooner than later.

Q: Are you going to have to miss any practices with the Hall of Fame ceremony for Bill Parcells?

A: No. Ill leave after practice. Coaches will take over the evening meetings and then were going to go for the ceremony to honor Bill and be there for him as Giant to Giant and then well travel back.

Q: Have you ever gone to an induction?

A: I havent. Ive been in the game before, but I have not been at the induction ceremony.
Robinson-Donnell thing is intriguing

Donnell was injured in the spring and if you are thought to have little chance to make it you would be waived injured and a replacement brought in who can practice...the fact the Giants kept him despite being unable to practice indicates they are interested in him...two big TE's would be nice if they keep developing.
