round of the 2018 NFL draft , he was considered a high-upside pick and a potential steal in the fifth round. He showed off an impressive quickness against Notre Dame andQuenton Nelson, and had his best game against the best lineman in the country. At the time, he was thought to be a natural fit as either a 3-technique or a defensive end in a 3-man front. Unfortunately, McIntosh never took the field for the Giants through the offseason program, training camp, preseason, or the first part of the regular season. An unreleased medical ailment kept the Miami product off the field from before the draft until the middle of October. He practiced for the first time for the Giants this Tuesday, and spoke to the media. On the illnessHe was, of course, asked about the illness that kept him off the field, but he wouldn’t shed any light on what was obviously a personal issue — which is absolutely his prerogative. “Yeah,” McIntosh said, “it’s something that just popped up. I don’t really feel comfortable talking about it. Something that popped up and it shouldn’t come back up.”That illness kept him off the field for months on end, and he hasn’t played football in nearly a year , which might have been the hardest part of the whole ordeal.“I would say it was difficult. I’m a football player, I want to play football. I always dreamed of being up here at this level.” McIntosh said. “So, I had to be patient. My family, it was a big deal with them. Explaining to them that it’s a process, and these guys were also telling me not to walk around here sad and stuff. Just get better. It’s out of my control.” He added, “I didn’t think it would take this long. I understand it’s a process, and we’re at the end of that process.”On how he can help the teamNow that he is back healthy, the Giants could certainly help on the defense. However, after practicing once, McIntosh isn’t there yet. He needs to work his way back into something like game shape — though he says that he is almost at his playing weight at Miami. He also needs reps, which are hard to come by while his teammates are preparing for games.“Just stay in my playbook,” he said, when asked what he has to show the coaches, “know everything that they’re talking about. Even though I’m on the side , I can still get mental reps. Focus in meetings, so when I do get the opportunity, I can show up and show out.”It has been a long road back to the field for McIntosh, and team is certainly looking forward to him showing up and showing out. But for now, he says it’s just good to be back on the field.“It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to do that – since last year, I think,” he said. “It felt great to be around the guys, and doing D-line drills with them. Finally feeling like I’m a part of the team.”Sights and sounds of Giants’ camp: Injury scare for Saquon Barkley The New York Giants held their breath Monday morning when Saquon Barkley had to be attended to by the training staff after reaching for a spectacular touchdown reception. Monday’s practice was intended to be a light one before their trip to practice with the Detroit Lions. That, however, didn’t stop Barkley from potentially dinging himself trying to make a play. That, and more, as we look at the sights and sounds of Monday’s practice.Injury scare for Saquon The Giants got a scare when Barkley came up gimpy after making a spectacular catch on a throw from Kyle Lauletta.Pat Shurmur would later say after practice that he believes that Barkley is “alright”. We’ll keep an eye on the situation and keep you updated with the latest as we get it. More from the practice fieldIn what should be a familiar pattern by now, the Giants started out their morning with their individual drills, working on fundamentals and warming up for their team period. This would turn out to be a light practice as the Giants travel to Detroit this afternoon for joint practices with the Detroit Lions in advance of Friday night’s preseason game.Rookie left guard Will Hernandez draws comparisons to former Giant Chris Snee on the field , but his attitude and mentality is much more in line with that of Snee’s teammate, Rich Suebert. Suebert was often referred to as a “mixer”, and Hernandez has brought that mentality back to the Giants’ offensive line.Once again, both of the Giants’ young quarterbacks got snaps with the first team. The Giants’ young quarterbacks had their struggles — as young players are want to do. First up was Davis Webb, who is looking to reassure the Giants’ coaches after a bad performance last Thursday night. He started off his time on the field with a pair of touchdowns to Odell Beckham Jr.Webb had some poor snaps as well, missing a couple passes high and fumbling a snap. Next up was rookie Kyle Lauletta, who threw an interception to Michael Thomas early on. He settled down as practice drew to a close and shortly before the end Lauletta set Barkley up for the spectacular touchdown reception on a wheel route that resulted in Barkley’s potential injury. Personnel notesSafety Darian Thompson, CB Donte Deayon, WR Travis Rudolph, and TE Ryan O’Malley were all out. Connor Barwin still seems to be recovering from the “soreness” resulting from Thursday’s game. Thurston Armbrister likewise seems dinged.With Thompson still out, Curtis Riley seems to have regained his starting job. William Gay is once again the starting slot corner.
