While Giants head coach Ben McAdoo has stated that Paul Perkins has a chance to grab hold of starter's spot, Orleans Darkwa is looking to push for his own starting reps at running back.
"I think any running back, if you don't have the mentality that you want to be the guy, then what are you doing?" Darkwa said. "Obviously, he said [Perkins] is the starter, but I try to go in with the mentality that I want to be the starter and take his job. I think that pushes everybody."
