The Giants will break camp today in Albany. Although they set a single-summer attendance record, they may opt not to return.

One of the possibilities is the new Timex Performance Center across from Giants’ Stadium, but co-owner John Mara did not rule out a return to Albany or perhaps “another destination.”

The Giants have held their training camp at the University of Albany for the past 14 summers.


Carr Falling Into Old Habits

QB coach Chris Palmer and Head Coach Tom Coughlin are concerned that David Carr is regressing back to his old form. You remember, the one that made him skittish and ineffective in his days in Houston? Palmer used a horse analogy when describing the action plan.

“We’re in the process of retraining him” said Palmer.


Injury News

DT Chris Canty is in New York to have his torn hamstring evaluated. He could be headed to IR.

CB Aaron Ross practiced lightly. He has missed both preseason games thus far with a sore hamstring.

DT Jay Alford is on a two-week medical watch. Doctors have stabilized his knee in hopes of saving him from the knife. No decision on his status will be made until the brace is removed.

OGs Chris Snee and Rich Seubert both practiced and may see action vs the Jets.

OLB Michael Boley (hip) is still relegated to individual workouts, but his progress has seemed to please Coughlin (”He’s looking better”).
