Jemison back in Blue

Mike Jemison was sleeping at his mother's house in Greencastle, Pa. when the call came – the Giants wanted him back for a second go-round.

"I missed about eight calls," Jemison said during lunch at U-Albany. "The call came in around nine in the morning (on Monday) and by two in the afternoon I was on a plane."

Jemison, who said he had "no idea at all" about the injury to reserve running back Derrick Ward, has been working out three times a week hoping for a call from someone, anyone. He's bulked up to about 245 pounds; he was closer to 235 during last summer's camp when he failed to make the Giants as a rookie free agent out of Indiana, Pa.

Jemison said he's glad to be back with the Giants, for comfort reasons alone.

"It's nicer as far as coming in and already knowing the system and how things work here," he said.

Jemison believed that he'd receive some carries during Friday night's preseason opener in Baltimore.

"I can't wait to touch that ball," he said.
