New York Giants Training Camp: Giants Prep For Jacksonville

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said Wednesday that he is looking forward to Friday's preseason opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The coach said the preseason game offered "an opportunity to tackle and have total physical contact, which we need."

Contrary to some teams the Giants do no tackling during training camp.

"Some people have scrimmages, I think we have four scrimmages," Coughlin said. "That’s what we do with our preseason games."

The Giants held their final practice before the Jacksonville game on Wednesday, a glorified walk-thru on the UAlbany practice fields.

"The objective is always to win but it’s all about personnel," Coughlin said. "Hopefully we’re good enough and deep enough that the guys will get in the game and respond and enjoy themselves. I want them to play hard and give us a chance to do some evaluating and trying to figure out how people fit."

The Giants will not practice Thursday as they travel to Jacksonville for Friday's game.

NOTES: Coughlin said starters will play "15 to 18" snaps. ... He said there are 11 players who won't play, and "you know who they are." They would be: Terrell Thomas (knee), Clint Sintim (knee, PUP), Travis Beckum (knee, PUP), Chris Canty (knee), Hakeem Nicks (foot), Will Beatty (back), Michael Boley (hamstring), Jacquain Williams (hip), Justin Trattou (ankle), Da'Rel Scott, Jake Muasau.
