Mallett was with the Eagles in camp last season. He rushed for 60 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries in the preseason opener before gaining only 37 yards on his final 12 attempts of the preseason. He was briefly on the team's practice squad before being released. He was later on the Browns' practice squad for two months and returned to the Eagles' practice squad for the postseason.
Ralph Vacchiano reports that Sorgi plans to return to practice Monday, less than five days before the Giants will reduce the roster by 22 players.
Sorgi's roster spot is likely still intact, however his injury has sidelined him long enough for speculation to swirl and for Rhett Bomar to get in a full game's worth of field time.

For my?first blog, here is a quick snapshot of how I thought the Giants? 2009 draft class looked during this past weekend?s rookie mini camp.
WR Hakeem Nicks: The first rounder came as advertised ? very polished. He?s not very tall, but he plays ?big.? He?s not afraid to go into traffic and he has good concentration, especially in traffic where he successfully used his body to shield the ball from the defender.
