The New York Giants (1-2) are getting healthier every day as they prepare for their game next Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks (2-1) at MetLife Stadium.
“Everybody’s been rehabbing, getting better,” head coach Brian Daboll told the media on Tuesday morning.
The offensive line appears to be rounding back into shape this week. Starting left guard Ben Bredeson is expected to clear concussion protocol on either Thursday or Friday and left tackle Andrew Thomas (hamstring) is inching closer to a return.
“He’ll be good to go,” Daboll said of Bredeson.
That’s good news for the Giants, who have curtailed their offensive game plan due to the injuries. With Thomas and Bredeson back to protects Daniel Jones’ blind side, they can resume their deeper passion attack.
Running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) is back being ‘day to day’ after he revealed last week that he had suffered a high-ankle sprain.
“He’s really now, I’d say, in the day-to-day category. Feels a lot better today, but we’ll kind of take that all the way throughout the week and see how he improves,” Daboll said.
Finally, rookie cornerback Deonte Banks (arm) is expected to be fine and will play Monday night.
