Pierre Strong Jr.
Daniel Jones' night is over. He completed 6-of-10 passes for 69 yards. Nice.
WR Kadarius Toney, who appeared to tweak his leg/knee, in Tuesday's practice won't play tonight, per source. Toney and the rest of the injured players were left in New Jersey to rehab.
Giants LG Shane Lemieux is in a walking boot for a left toe injury. Obviously we'll have to see the severity.
Barkley rushed four times for 13 yards and caught his only target for eight yards in Thursday's 23-21 preseason win over the Patriots.
Barkley only played the first series but worked as the focal point of New York's offense, accruing five touches during his brief time in the game. He's likely to see plenty of volume as both a rusher and pass catcher when the games start to count, but the Giants will likely continue to limit Barkley's playing time throughout the preseason. He'll probably see a similar workload when the Bengals come to town Aug. 21 for the next preseason game.
Good opening drive for the Giants. They go 13 plays. Settle for 3 because of a Kenny Golladay drop at the 2-yard line. Daniel Jones 3-of-6 passing for 42 yards and ran for a first on a third down. Overall, lots of positives to take.
Brian Daboll with a tribute to Joe Judge. Send the offense out for fourth and 5, let the shot clock run out, punt.
Future Giants starting QB Tyrod Taylor now in at quarterback.
Rookie CB Cor'Dale Flott ruled out with a groin injury. Nothing about this game makes you feel better about #Giants OL, CB and TE depth.
Kayvon Thibodeaux was responsible for that Patriots' false start
Collin Johnson has been impressive all of camp. Continues into preseason. Two early catches for 30 yards. Seems to have an inside track to a roster spot. #Giants
Graham Gano with the game-winner from 24 yards out as time expires: Giants 23, Patriots 21 Been a while since Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen have lost a preseason game
Daboll thought OC Mike Kafka did well communicating throughout the game. "It's our first step." Daboll admitted it felt strange not calling the plays, especially the night before when preparing. "Mike's done a good job with it."
Darrian Beavers looks the part physically. Guys definitely feel it when he hits them.
GM Joe Schoen, on the broadcast, said rookie WR Wan'Dale Robinson has been a pleasant addition to the roster. He has to be smart because of how much they move him around.

Patriots RB James White has announced his retirement from the NFL.
Tyquan Thornton fought through a defensive holding penalty as he snapped off his route and catches the TD pass. This route-running from Thornton has shown up quite a bit in practice. Consistent hands, too. More than a speed WR.
QB Mac Jones and most Patriots starters aren't expected to play in tonight's preseason opener, sources tell me and @DanGrazianoESPN. Joint practices against the Panthers next week, then the Raiders the following week.
Damien Harris called James White a "once-in-a-lifetime player." Asked how the Patriots replace White's leadership, he said: "You can't." pic.twitter.com/kxxYxrs6Xf
Patriots rookie jersey numbers (by round): 69: G Cole Strange 11: WR Tyquan Thornton 25: CB Marcus Jones 34: CB Jack Jones 35: RB Pierre Strong Jr. 4: QB Bailey Zappe 36: RB Kevin Harris 96: DT Sam Roberts 63: G Chasen Hines 64: OT Andrew Stueber
Patriots rookies will receive more traditional jersey numbers today. This has been a Bill Belichick staple up to the first preseason game, a reminder to them to focus on more important things. Giants at Patriots -- preseason opener -- 7 p.m. ET. #⃣🏈#⃣🏈
I thought Kristian Wilkerson, Mack Wilson, Anfernee Jennings, Tre Nixon and Lil'Jordan Humphrey were solid tonight. Joint practices should be fun next week

That's a 36-yard pass from Bailey Zappe to Tre Nixon. Nice throw.

Great punch out by Terrance Mitchell. Malcolm Butler recovers the fumble.

Tre Nixon in the second half: 🔃🔃 (2 long catches) twitter.com/MikeReiss/stat…
Of primary importance in a preseason game, the Patriots didn't seem to sustain any season-changing injuries to players. G Bill Murray, OT Yodny Cajuste, OT Justin Herron and CB Joejuan Williams among those who visited the medical tent during the game.
Cole Strange said he's improved "in every way possible" since the start of camp. Said he feels comfortable in the Patriots offense and wasn't surprised by the speed of the game tonight. pic.twitter.com/2cmGaFIga6
Myles Bryant with a nice punt return (30 yards) and the Patriots are pumped on the sideline. Players and coaches seem to really like Bryant.
One source believes Nelson Agholor will wind up being the odd-man out in the #Patriots WR room. A source on a WR-needy team said they wouldn't take on his $9M salary in a trade. Behind the scenes, Agholor has impressed this offseason. It's a complicated situation. twitter.com/dougkyed/statu…
LaBryan Ray continues to show up this summer. Run stuff there for the Alabama product.
Yodny Cajuste now out of the tend and riding a stationary bike. Appears to have avoided serious injury.
David Andrews has been coaching up the o-line with a tablet. Patricia just got over there.
Jack Jones with a nice pass breakup. He's been really competitive this summer.

Interesting to me that we haven't seen rookie Marcus Jones tonight. He's been getting work with the starters inside. Jon Jones has played more outside. He hasn't played tonight, either. Top corner group could end up as Jalen Mills and Jon Jones outside with Marcus Jones inside.
Most of the Patriots' starters won't play tonight, but it looks like Cole Strange will. Top O-line in warmups: LT Yodny Cajuste LG Cole Strange C James Ferentx RG Arlington Hambright RT Justin Herron
It's the second half of a preseason game, but a number of Patriots veterans are still paying close attention. Jalen Mills, Matthew Slater, Jabrill Peppers and Matthew Judon all just argued that Wilkerson was interfered with on that last deep ball.
Giants call tails. Tails never fails. Giants win the toss, and will receive. Matthew Slater represented the Patriots as the lone captain for the toss.
Patriots rookie DL Sam Roberts has shown up a few times in this first half. Had a pressure earlier that led to an Uche sack and another on this drive. Haven't noticed much from him in camp, but this has been a strong debut.
Myles Bryant, who had two nice punt returns tonight, said the last time he returned a punt in a game was 2015, his senior year of high school. Devin McCourty, from two lockers over: "2015?? That was my fifth year in the league." pic.twitter.com/sSEyvnov4T
