Observations from Giants training camp on Thursday.
Peart not all right
Matt Peart was getting plenty of reps at left tackle even though he is the presumptive starter on the right side. Why? For the second straight day, starting left tackle Andrew Thomas — who is coming off ankle surgery — was given a light day.
Slow and steady
The pace of this practice was basically like a jog-through, as Joe Judge dialed back the physical intensity after the first two days in full pads. Players got their work in, but at a much slower tempo.
Caught my eye
Every summer there is a new shirt displaying a new motto put in place by the head coach. This year, all players and coaches were given shirts that say “Fight’’ on the front. Jason Garrett said his “Fight’’ shirt was in the laundry, which is why he was wearing a blue Giants shirt with a handwritten “Fight’’ above the NY logo.
LB Reggie Ragland has finally joined in at practice. He passed his physical and was removed from the physically unable to perform list. Ragland will be in the running for the starting inside linebacker spot alongside Blake Martinez.
