The Giants practiced this afternoon with one tight end, Bear Pascoe, as Kevin Boss (hamstring), Scott Chandler (hip flexor), Travis Beckum (hamstring) and Jake Ballard (hamstring) all sat injured. To fill out the depth, Tom Coughlin moved OL Herb Taylor to tight end, and actually sent him out on a deep throw by Rhett Bomar that eventually fell incomplete.
Taylor had never played tight end before.
"I thought that Bear Pascoe and Herb Taylor did an outstanding job with allowing our team to practice today, are you kidding me?" Coughlin said. "Basically, those adjustments are from this morning. When I picked up the medical (report) today, four tight ends were out. The most frustrating thing, no matter what anyone ever tells you, is that all the planning, all of what goes into your practices, and all you expect to do, and then you hear this part of it. I give credit to both sides. The defense was made aware of what the offense was practicing with, and the offensive team was made aware of how there would be some added circumstances in our practice."
