2. Wilson returned kicks after yesterday’s medical tests. A day after a CT scan showed progress on his surgically-repaired neck -- but not enough to be cleared for full participation -- running back David Wilson was the third kick returner today in practice. Ahead of him were Trindon Holliday and Quintin Demps, who took the first-team reps. “Progress has been made, so it’s not a negative report at all in our opinion,” Coughlin said about Wilson’s status. “It’s probably right where it should be.”
3. The secondary moved on. Stevie Brown played opposite Antrel Rolle as the first-team safeties on defense. Behind them, C.J. Barnett and Cooper Taylor took turns on the second team playing across from Quintin Demps (Taylor even saw some time with Rolle). Meanwhile, cornerback Jayron Hosley, whose four-game suspension for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse was announced yesterday, was in attendance for Thursday’s OTA. Hosley is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.
5. Offense made “sizable” progress this week. With their sixth OTA in the books, the Giants have four more practices next week before mandatory minicamp (June 17-19) and training camp a month later. So far, the learning curve in new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo’s system has shrunk with each practice. And while there were still some miscommunications between quarterbacks and receivers during Thursday’s indoor practice at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center, progress was made. In the absence of Beckham and Jernigan, players like Marcus Harris, Preston Parker, and Trindon Holliday showed flashes at wide receiver and all made catches in the final practice of the week. “You always want more,” Coughlin said. “But, I have to say again, they made progress this week, sizable progress this week.”
