While the Giants were practicing on Thursday, RB Rashad Jennings was working with a trainer on a side field. He was running and dragging a weighted sled behind him. It was the first time he's done this since the injury. "We can build off that," Jennings said.
This is the first step in helping rebuild his strength in the knee and get his endurance to a point where he can carry a significant workload in a game.
Up next is running in zigzags. The expectation is that will come in the next couple days or so. Jennings hasn't reached the point of planting his foot in the ground and changing directions. He isn't ready to cut.
"We haven't gotten the OK for that," Jennings said.
Jennings hasn't had a setback, it's just taking a bit longer than expected for the knee to be ready for cuts.
