Giants Training Camp Update: Big Blue Could Use Some Good News

After a week filled with bad news — injuries, defections and contract squabbles — the New York Giants could use some good news. And they just might get some.

Free-agent wide receiver Smith, recovering from micro-fracture knee surgery, posted on Facebook over the weekend that he will be visiting with the Giants this week. Smith is not expected to be ready for the beginning of the season, which is one reason he still has not signed a contract anywhere. All along, however, it has been believed that he and the Giants want to stay together.

Bringing back their all-time single-season reception leader — whenever he is ready to play — would be a good thing for an offense that lost tight end Kevin Boss to the Oakland Raiders last week.

The Giants lost a pair of cornerbacks last week. First-round pick Prince Amukamara broke a bone in his foot and will miss several weeks, while reserve Bruce Johnson suffered a season-ending Achilles Tendon injury.

The Giants also still have to resolve the Osi Umenyiora situation. Umenyiora continues to sit on the sidelines claiming a knee injury as he tries to get a new contract from the team or force a trade.

The Giants have their first preseason game Saturday at Carolina.
