Training camp: Day 7 recap

Here are some highlights from the afternoon practice session. Giants are off on Sunday.

Rookie DT Linval Joseph had a terrific afternoon practice. He was in the backfield quite a bit and would’ve stopped RB Brandon Jacobs in the backfield and had a sack.

DT Jay Alford also had a solid practice, getting penetration in the backfield. It was defensive tackles gone wild, really, as DT Chris Canty also had some fine moments.

RB Andre Brown got a lot of work in practice and ran hard. The second-year running back looks like he is getting better as camp progresses.

• • •

Rookie DE Jason Pierre-Paul had a good practice as well but he did get thrown to the ground by backup OL Jacob Bender.

• • •

The offense did better in the red zone drills. QB Eli Manning hit WR Hakeem Nicks in the end zone on CB Corey Webster in the right corner.
