Training Camp Notes: Friday July 26

The morning practice provided a glimpse of what the Giants want to see over and over again: An able-bodied Jason Sehorn

The morning practice provided a glimpse of what the Giants want to see over and over again: An able-bodied Jason Sehorn making one of his graceful, game-breaking plays.

Sehorn, coming back from knee surgery, stepped in front of Dixon to make an athletic interception off Kerry Collins. "It's bothering him and he's pushing through it,'' Fassel said. "I don't want to see him go too far, but he's pushing himself right now and I think that's good.''

The second full day of practice came and went with no sign of Jeremy Shockey, the first-round pick who is supposed to re-introduce the passing game to the Giants tight end position. No alarm just yet, but Fassel is starting to get just a bit antsy. "There's nobody who can just walk in here and say they got it down,'' Fassel said.

Jason Garrett had an exceptional morning throwing the ball. ...

Rookie T Jeff Hatch left the morning session with back spasms. ...

Rodney Williams is the heavy favorite to retain his punting job, but the extra punter in camp, Gabe Lindstrom, is expected to provide real competition. "I want to see Rodney Williams become more consistent,'' Fassel said. "I don't want to see one booming punt and everyone oohs and aahs and the next one he shanks it.''...

With Dusty Zeigler (knee) and Jason Whittle (hamstring) sidelined with injuries, T Chris Bober was given a try at center during both practice sessions. ...

The day was unusually cool, cloudy and breezy, and Fassel said it is desirable to have such favorable conditions early in camp.
