Corey Ballentine update per Jordan Raanan twitter

Aaron Thomas : 5/13/2019 1:11 pm
Sixth-round pick Corey Ballentine reported Monday w/rest of Giants rookie class + is partaking in some activities (classroom, rehab, etc.) Ballentine was shot in backside after he was drafted. He popped into the facility late last week but now officially joined his new teammates.
Ballentine cannot be harmed

By conventional weapons.

From the available medical reports, it really is "but a flesh wound".

Needs time for the skin to heal, but no major affect on strength or movement.
Also, while I liked the pick

let's recognize he's a 6th round selection and should plan to just get himself right. Wouldn't anticipate him be in an early rotation healthy or not.

I haven't seen it stated that way, but if so, great. Superficial would have no lasting effect. A muscle injury, very different.
I have seen so many attempts at humor

perhaps BBI could make its presence felt by donating .. I donated last week and it seems that it has stalled at this level of $11.8k....
It would be very interesting to take a look

To see if any of the many jokesters on this issue felt the need to throw fat Mike under the bus for his stupid comments oh the irony in that

It is not funny at all. Agree totally.
I'll feel better when I read that he signed a contract

I expect the Giants to do the classy thing regardless, but we still know very little about the seriousness of it other than it was non life threatening.
Anyone arrested yet?  
SomeFan : 5/14/2019 5:43 am : link
Seems concerning that someone is still walking the streets that would randomly drive up and shoot someone. If this was like reported, that is death penalty punishment.

Well, one can glean since he's walking and travelling that the seriousness of it isn't on the deep end.
I can't believe some of the douchebag comments on here.

Love it!

Has nothing to do with and is in no way inconsistent with the awfulness of the crime and the killing of his close friend.

Your clever remark was at heart meant as a compliment and I think BBIers should take it that way. I do. His future counts more than the instant of his tragedy -- and it's his future we all should be rooting for, come what may.
