More Scrimmage Notes

"I'm not sure how it happened, but it hurt," Greisen said. "I kept playing but I couldn't even really run..."

Nick Greisen knew something was wrong after the first play of Saturday's scrimmage.

He took a shot to the outside of his right ankle - he either was kicked or hit by a helmet - and pain immediately shot through his lower leg. Greisen continued to play, but was ineffective due to the injury and the excessive heat.

The second-year LB, who was on crutches after the scrimmage, was extremely pleased to find out that he hadn't broken any bones and was expected to be fine.

"I'm not sure how it happened, but it hurt," Greisen said. "I kept playing but I couldn't even really run. Then I couldn't catch my breath because it was so hot out there."…

The Giants three rookie wideouts were all impressive Saturday. David Tyree caught six passes for 51 yards; Kevin Walter four for 55 and Willie Ponder three for 24.

"The young receivers did a good job," Head Coach Jim Fassel said. "They went up and got the ball." Tyree was mostly pleased with his showing. "It was a good first impression," he said. "I felt like I had more to prove. I feel like I belong here - as a special teams player and a wide receiver."…

Second-string QB Jesse Palmer was intercepted twice, completing four-of-seven passes…

Amani Toomer caught four passes for 78 yards…

Delvin Joyce was impressive (11 carries, 40 yards and a TD), while Dorsey Levens had one 10-yard run, but gained a total of zero yards on his other six carries. Levens also caught two passes for 10 yards…

Reserve D-linemen Ahmad Miller and Radell Lockhart recorded sacks…

After the scrimmage, the Giants held their annual rookie talent show. The best act, by far, was turned in by Osi Umenyiora and Visanthe Shiancoe.

New York's second-round pick portrayed Michael Strahan while the club's third-rounder played Brett Favre in an amusing remake of Strahan's infamous record-breaking sack…
