New York Giants Training Camp: Coughlin Wants Improvement

Sunday afternoon New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin had still not shaken off his disappointment over much of what he saw in Friday's preseason-opening 32-31 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. During Sunday's film session he gave his team a list of 10 things to work on and said he "probably could have given them 20."

"The whole thing is about improvement," Coughlin said. "The pressure is to get better and we should get better."

The Giants muffed two punts in the preseason game, one by Jayron Hosley and one by Jerrel Jernigan, and finding a returner who can consistently secure the ball will be a focus of the rest of the preseason.

"Are you available to try," Coughlin asked a curious reporter. "I’ll put out whoever wants to come out here and catch punts. We have about five guys and they’re going to keep grinding away."

INJURY NOTES: Left tackle Will Beatty (back) returned to practice on a limited basis. Justin Trattou (ankle), Michael Boley (hamstring), Jacquain Williams (hip), Shaun Rogers (knee) and David Douglas (quad) were among those who did not practice.
