"They think they got it all out," Giants VP John Mara said. "Overall, he has a very good prognosis."
Mara took in most of both practices on the Giants first day of veteran minicamp, something his son said was a definite goal.
"He had this date targeted," the younger Mara said.
John Mara said the recovery, as expected, was going to take some time – and that his father was growing a little impatient with the whole process.
"He's frustrated he hasn't gotten better as quickly as he'd like, but he's 88 years old," he said. "Each day I see him it seems like he's better."
The scary procedure in the past, John Mara was able to have a little fun regarding his father's condition.
"We list him as probable for the first game," Mara joked.
