Canty said he and his injured calf did some individual drills and some "pushing and pulling with the trainers."
"We're just making sure that the power and the ability to perform is there. And it was."
Canty added that he wasn't just blowing smoke. The Giants should hope he wasn't, because they could certainly use the 6-foot-7, 304-pound defensive tackle in the middle right now, especially since Fred Robbins and Barry Cofield haven't exerted much pressure on the quarterback lately. That probably won't happen until after the bye. But getting Canty away from the trainers and back to at least limited team drills before the bye would be very encouraging for that timetable.
It's no fun being on the Ronnie Barnes scholarship program.
"I'm looking forward to missing those guys," Canty said, who added it would probably take a game or two for him to get back into the groove once he does return to drills fulltime.
Whatever the case, Canty can't wait. Here's what he had to say about that.
