Camp Quickies

Tim Carter shocked everyone and practiced during the morning session and looked great, catching at least four passes. Carter's been slowed by a knee injury and said Thursday that he didn't think he'd practice opening day. More on Carter to follow.

Several other slightly injured players competed, including Brandon Short, who looked especially quick, LaVar Arrington and Will Demps. More on Short to follow.

The first play of the 11-on-11 scrimmage was a long Eli Manning bomb down the right sideline to Amani Toomer, who had separated nicely from CB Sam Madison.

The Giants camp-opening punt return depth chart looks like this: Chad Morton, R.W. McQuarters, Sinorice Moss and Michael Jennings.

LaVar Arrington said that ESPN personality Merril Hoge called him last night to apologize for disparaging remarks Hoge made about Arrington. More on the Arrington/Hoge scenario to follow.

First-round pick Mathias Kiwanuka on his first NFL practice: "Since we had the rookie minicamps and offseason program, I wasn't as nervous as some people might think or even I thought I would be. It felt good, it felt good. As always there are things I have to pick up and learn. I didn't do everything perfect or right. You try not to make the same mistakes again and also build on the things I did right."
