DT Fred Robbins (knee) and LB Michael Boley (hip) were placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list at camp's outset and DT Rocky Bernard (hamstring) was placed on the non-football injury list. Head coach Tom Coughlin stated that he was "surprised" that Bernard wasn't ready to start camp; that's hardly the right way to impress the new boss.
The news on Robbins and Boley was expected.
Also, DT Barry Cofield, who, like Robbins, had offseason knee surgery, reported fully healthy and ready to go.
All nine draft picks were on hand as well. First-round receiver Hakeem Nicks signed a five-year deal worth close to $12.5 million to ensure perfect attendance for the Class of 2009.
"Our objective every year is to have these rookies in camp on time," GM Jerry Reese said. "Training camp is the start of the long haul to get to where we want to be as a team. We all have a lot of hard work ahead of us, and this is the start. It's important for the rookies to be in sync with the rest of the team from the start, because we expect them to contribute to our success. Every year."
