    I am willing to give Brown and Hightower the benefit of the doubt in re IR or PUP, but to put them on the active roster and HOPE they can get on the field with no preseason and be effective come September would be a mistake.

    Hopefully 2010 and 2011 has taught this organization NOT to count on injured players to return at 100% on the schedule the doctors have set.

    You have to build depth and be willing to move on and find the next alternative.

    At running back, I am hopeful that Morris can show some more of the combo skills that you see in an everydown back - something that Royster and Helu don't bring to the table.

    There's nothing wrong with a platoon approach at RB if you really have the solid talent the Giants have had in their past Super Bowl runs, but if you are treading water with a collection of #2 backs it would be nice to see somebody break through and become the primary guy.

    Don't forget we signed about 3 guys at safety, who also are damaged goods, physically.

    So don't be surprised if safety becomes a disaster.

    And yea - no way Banks makes the roster, unless we keep like 17 receivers.

    And Jordan Black has been getting some good press.

    Barring injury, or trade, this is what I want/see.

    Cousins will make Sexy, expendable.
    Helu, or Royster, possible trade bait before the trade deadline if Hightower comes back strong.
    Rackers drop kicks Gano out the doe!

    Edit: **Neild to IR, add Chris Wilson to the roster

    EDIT: Reading on Twitter that it was "heat illness" that caused Hank to leave practice. Still nothing to mess around with, but something he should recover from fairly easily.

    I hope he's OK. This is the downside of twitter. The report is out, but it immediately invoked fear of his hip again because he was "carted off"...

    Heat related. I was worried when the news broke. Daughter is attending today's practice as a VIP invite through a friend and she was certain it was heat related - as per a text. Also being somewhat confirmed via numerous twitter messages.

    Right, because they don't mention that he walked to the sidelines on his own power, and then took the cart to the locker room before getting up on his own power. They make it sound like he was laying motionless on the field

    It goes both ways. Neild's injury was 'non-serious' until it was a torn ACL.

    So this was an early guess on the roster - I was going out on a limb. As we get closer to the end of the preseason it will be more apparent how the Oline will shake out.

    I keep ten Oline on my 53-man roster - the last two years the Shanny's have kept only 9, so my scenario isn't necessarily likely. Howeverm I am concerned about the state of our Oline, and I don't think we should joke about its desperate state.

    Being that I kept 10 Olinemen (due to the number of injuries and the emphasis on keeping Griffin upright,) I needed to decide on a backup tackle and it was down to Black, Compton, and Campbell.

    Black: 32 years old, off the street, was in process of filing retirement papers, is only up to 280 lbs.

    Campbell: 25 year old who was drafted by a team with a solid front office and a good drafting track record, was let go by Packers due to weight issues, presumably got the memo and is focused and in shape and supposedly quite athletic; hungry not ready for retirement

    Compton: A project with potential who needs to get stronger, adjust to the NFL, improve technique; good candidate for the Practice Squad

    I picked Campbell.

    Edit: Campbell was signed undrafted by the Packers, but doesn't change the fundamental point.

    I know he's had at least 1 or 2 TD returns in the regular season that were called back by penalty

    I would feel VERY comfortable with that receiver group : Garçon, Moss, Hankerson, Morgan, Briscoe, Robinson.

    They bring a lot of diversity with their skills, and together they make us complete in that position.
