Coach Brian Daboll especially “optimistic” about TE Daniel Bellinger.
The tweet went on to say Daboll said Bellinger is “Trending in the right direction. … optimistic for Belly." Bellinger was starting to come alive in the Giants offense before an eye injury in Week 7 against the Jags. In Week 2 he caught one ball but it was a 16-yard TD. From Weeks 3-6 he averaged over three catches and four targets a game while adding one more TD and averaging a little over 30 yards receiving per contest.
