Darnay Holmes does it all on defense in big day at Giants camp

Observations from Giants training camp on Tuesday.

Shane gain

Projected starting left guard Shane Lemieux returned to live 11-on-11 team drills for the first time since suffering a knee injury July 29. That’s significant for a young group of offensive linemen that can use all the practice time together possible.

‘O’ no!

The offense struggled mightily. It committed two turnovers — interceptions of Daniel Jones and Mike Glennon — and lacked cohesion. The first-team offensive line had its problems giving the quarterbacks time, a camp-long issue.

Caught my eye

It was a big day for cornerback Darnay Holmes. He picked off Glennon during 7-on-7 drills, broke up a pass in the end zone intended for Sterling Shepard and also had a “sack” of Jones on a blitz in live team drills.

Injury report

OT Nate Solder, WR Alex Bachman and TE Jake Hausmann left practice and didn’t return. Bachman and Hausmann went inside with trainers, while Solder remained on the field, although he stayed on the sideline. WR John Ross, who appeared to hurt his hamstring on Monday, was off to the side during practice, as were fellow WR Kenny Golladay, DB Jarren Williams and C Jonotthan Harrison. Golladay, dealing with a hamstring injury, caught passes in a stationary position. Saquon Barkley took part in individual drills for the second straight day.
