"Will Hill played very well in the first preseason game, he played well after he got going a little bit in the second preseason game, and he continues to do a good job with the special teams assignments, he’s pretty much on all those teams," said head coach Tom Coughlin after Tuesday's practice. "There’s definitely improvement there."
"It’d be a nice story for the kid," said Coughlin, "if he can put it all together."
• Hill did get beat on the final play of Tuesday's practice, however. The Giants wrapped up the session by working on the two-minute drill, and on just the second play, Victor Cruz got past Hill for a catch and touchdown that ended the day's work on the field.
• Tight end Martellus Bennett, a.k.a. "The Black Unicorn," wants everyone to know that he's down to 269 pounds. He sidled over to reporters during practice to share that news. There was some concern about Bennett's weight at the beginning of the summer -- concern that Bennett took issue with at the time.
