Darius Reynaud

Multiple observers have praised Darius Reynaud's performance in camp thus far. Last season's disappointing kick returner and fourth-string running back has been practicing as a receiver this pre-season and the reports have been consistently positive.

The latest quote comes from CBS Sports' Alex Raskin:

WR/KR/PR?Darius Reynaud?is continuing his impressive camp. He caught a bomb from QBSage Rosenfels?for a TD, and even though he stands just 5-9, Reynaud has been effective catching passes along the sideline.
Reynaud has a tough road ahead of him to even make the roster, and his small stature won't help him.?Hakeem Nicks, Mario Manningham and Jerrel Jernigan are all locks to make the roster, and Domenik Hixon, Victor Cruz and Ramses Barden are all likely ahead of Reynaud. He could be battling the likes of Michael Clayton, Devin Thomas and Duke Calhoun for one roster spot, and that's before we try to figure out where Steve Smith factors in to the equation.

Darius Reynaud pulled his hamstring at practice today during a kick return. Despite the setback, he told reporters that he intends to play Sunday .

Coach Coughlin has yet to officially declare Will Blackmon the KR/PR but this injury would likely expedite that process. It is hard to imagine that the Giants would take Reynaud across the country today just to return kicks with a bad hammy.

It is worth noting that a (likely minor) hamstring injury placed fan-favorite Victor Cruz on IR. One could assume that a disappointing Reynaud is in danger of a similar fate.

For those of you wondering if the Giants would pick up Randy Moss, (kidding of course) wonder no more. The Giants did have an open slot today after placing CB Bruce Johnson on IR, but opted to nab young DE Alex Hall instead.

Johnson, made a splash as a rookie in 2009, pick-6ing Tony Romo in the Week 2 Sunday Night Showdown. Johnson suffered a slight demotion in 2010 upon the return of a healthy Aaron Ross. His season is now over following knee surgery.

Hall, as you might remember, was with the Giants in camp this summer. I am a bit surprised that the Giants opted to add him instead of a running back, receiver, or DB. A popular topic this summer was the crowded DE situation and though Kiwanuka has been lost, the four men tandem rounded out by Dave Tollefson has been enjoying great success. It did not seem like a project DE was a pressing concern.

It would seem that Kevin Booth has a chance to dodge IR if he can stay off the training room table and in the practice field trenches.

Kiwanuka's trip to IR has spared KR Darius Reynaud...for now. The Giants now have until WEEK 9 to decide if they want to hang on to the mending Boothe (a stalwart reser

Our colleague at Inside Football, Pat Traina provides the organization' s take on the newest Giants...

?Sage gives us a solid veteran backup quarterback in every way,? said Giants GM Jerry Reese said. ?If need be, he can go in and win games. He will provide a very good support system and sounding board for Eli in the film room and on the sideline on game day.?
?Darius is a young man that we?ve had our eye on for a while,? Coughlin said. ?He is a guy who has versatility ? punt returner, kickoff returner, gunner, covers kicks ? he can play on all those teams. He?s also been a wide receiver and he?s been a running back. He?ll learn to be a receiver so he can help you out in an emergency situation. He can learn two or three running plays and help you out there as well.?
