Even though they were going up against a scout defense in preparation for the Jets, Eli Manning hit Randle twice on deep bombs for potential touchdowns. Randle beat Terrence Frederick on the first would-be touchdown. The second came on an impressive over-the-shoulder catch on Charles James, who had decent coverage.
Antrel's rolling:Antrel Rolle is nearing a return to the practice field. While he did not practice, he looked very good backpedaling and shuffling sideways in an individual drill (I shot a video, and I know it looks like it was taken a million miles away but hey, I tried!).
He looks like he could be back in practice perhaps as soon as tomorrow.
MLB race:Dan Connor was still working with the first team at middle linebacker, with Mark Herzlich working with the second team. We'll have to see if one can pull away from the competition on Saturday against the Jets. If Connor gets a half to work with the first team, that could work in his favor.
Elsewhere at linebacker, Kyle Bosworth got some snaps with the second team and made a nice play, rejecting a short side pass from Manning intended to go out into the flat... James just broke up a deep but slightly underthrown pass for Hakeem Nicks... After an incomplete pass to Kevin Hardy, Will Hill and James, both of them in coverage on the play, playfully jawed with Hardy.
