The concussion that we previously knew would keep
wide receiver/kick returner Jawill Davis out of Monday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons has forced the New York Giants into a roster move. Needing a return man Youth Patrick Omameh Jersey , the Giants are waiving rookie tight end Garrett Dickerson and signing Quadree Henderson from their practice squad.Henderson, a rookie undrafted free agent, was a dangerous return man collegiately for Pitt. Henderson averaged 26.6 yards with four TDs on 73 kickoff returns and 13.4 yards with three touchdowns on 37 punt returns in college. The 5-foot-8, 190-pounder can also play wide receiver.“He was a really fine returner in college and we brought him here with the idea that he might return for us at some point,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “He’s also done a good job picking up the receiver stuff.”Davis, a rookie undrafted free agent, has averaged 24.4 yards on seven kickoff returns. He has also caught two passes.Special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey was complementary of Davis’ progress Friday — before the news of his being placed in the concussion protocol was known.“He’s a young player. He’s getting better every week. He is definitely ascending. The arrow is up with that kid Aldrick Rosas Jersey ,” McGaughey said. “He averaged 29 yards a return last time he was out there. The week before, it was 21. So each week, you’re seeing some progression with him. He’s getting more confident as a gunner. The kid is talented. We’re just going to keep nurturing talent.”Dickerson has played in two games for the Giants. He started the season on the practice squad before being promoted to the 53-man roster. Should he clear waivers, Dickerson will likely end up back on the practice squad.The Giants are thin at receiver, having placed Cody Latimer and Davis on IR, and with Russell Shepard [neck] questionable. They added veteran Bennie Fowler this week to replace Latimer.Post-game quotebook: What the Giants were saying after Thursday’s loss to Patriots What were New York Giants players saying after Thursday’s 17-12 preseason ending loss to the New England Patriots? Let’s go inside the locker room and find out.Donte Deayon on his two trophiesAs he was packing up to head out of the locker room Deayon was stuffing two footballs, the ones he intercepted on Thursday Authentic Rhett Ellison Jersey , into his equipment bag.“Man, it’s lovely,” Deayon said of seeing the footballs in his locker. “They are two Patriot ones, so it feels a little better.”Deayon on if he feels secure about making the roster “No, because honestly last year that’s how I felt going into the fourth game. I felt like I kind of laxed and it didn’t sit well with me. I had a little sick feeling in my stomach. Going into this game, I wanted to lock in, and got out there and give it my all. We’ll see what happens.“I won’t be nervous. At this point Youth Kerry Wynn Jersey , I put it all out on the table, I put my best foot forward. At this point, what happens, happens.”Giants-Patriots: Was Kyle Lauletta’s night better than the stats indicated?Kyle Lauletta on starting the game“I was very excited. I mean, I have wanted to play more and obviously, I haven’t played a whole lot. Probably the first game was the most that I played, so to say Curtis Riley Jersey , ‘Hey, you are going to get the start’ was big for me. I don’t think I was nervous. Any time you get out there, you’re a little bit amped up, but I don’t feel nervous. It’s more you just want to do well and you want to throw the balls so good and sometimes when you miss one, you really have to turn the page and move on. Sometimes that will haunt you and will cause you to make more mistakes. I felt comfortable back there; I just missed a couple [of throws], some by a yard or two, but it is what it is. We’ll move on and get ready for the season.Davis Webb on his preseason“I did the best I could and I think I got better each and every day. I feel confident where I’m at Nate Solder Jersey , and I know my teammates do. That’s the most important thing.”
