EAST RUTHERFORD Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , N.J. (AP) — Coach Jeff Monken and the Army football team watched the New York Giants practice and were saluted by the NFL players after the workout.Because of NCAA rules, the Cadets had to watch the roughly two-hour workout sitting in the temporary stands surrounding the Giants’ three fields at the team headquarters near MetLife Stadium.After meeting with coach Pat Shurmur, the Giants walked over as a group, waved to the Army players and threw small equipment to the Cadets. Star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. ran toward the chain link fence separating the field from the stands and climbed it, while two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning tossed gloves into the stands.“These guys are terrific young men and at some point they may be defending our freedom, so our guys, I thought it was great Kaleb McGary Jersey , they went over there and acknowledged them,” Shurmur said.Monken said the Cadets had planned to attend a practice last season but they had to cancel the trip when weather forced him to make up a practice at West Point. With a day off Tuesday, Monken planned the roughly one-hour trip from the military academy.“We were thrilled to have this opportunity to come here on our day off and watch the professionals,” Monken said.Army is coming off a 10-3 season that ended with a 42-35 win over San Diego State in the Lockheed Martin Armed Services Bowl in Texas. The Cadets open their season on Aug. 31 at Duke.Like most coaches, Monken said his team is not ready.“We are a long ways from ready,” said Monken, entering his fifth season at Army. “If you saw us practice yesterday (Monday) Kendall Sheffield Jersey , you would know how far we are from ready.”Monken and his staff stood on the sidelines and occasionally talked to Giants coaches during the workout. Being a former special teams coach, he spoke with assistant Tom Quinn. He also liked a few of the passing routes New York was running.“We’re not a big throwing team, but we can use some of that,” he said.If one drill caught Monken’s eye it was a scout team drill the Giants were using to prepare their defense for Cleveland.Monken took note of the offensive personnel on the field.“Who is in there but No. 10 at quarterback (Manning), and Beckham is over there playing receiver off the scout cards,” Monken said. “It’s great for our guys that these guys in there and giving their defense the best look, and we’re prepared to win the game. Other people don’t notice. I noticed and I certainly think our guys noticed John Cominsky Jersey , too.” FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets will be without two key playmakers on offense against the Houston Texans.Starting running back Isaiah Crowell and wide receiver Quincy Enunwa will not play because of injuries that kept them out of practice all week.Crowell, who is dealing with a toe ailment, leads the Jets with 685 yards rushing and six touchdowns. The game Saturday will mark the first the durable running back has missed in his five-year NFL career.“He’s hurt,” coach Todd Bowles said Thursday. “There’s nothing we can do about it. So, we just move on.”Elijah McGuire, who is questionable with an ankle injury Qadree Ollison Jersey , and rookie Trenton Cannon are expected to replace Crowell in the backfield.“It’s a good opportunity,” Bowles said. “They’ve been playing some since they’ve been healthy. … You like what you see, so they get a chance to prove themselves.”Enunwa has been sidelined this week by an ankle injury. He leads the Jets with 38 receptions despite missing two games earlier this season.Rishard Matthews and Deontay Burnett could see increased snaps this week in place of Enunwa.The Jets also announced that backup linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu will also be out with a concussion.Cornerback Trumaine Johnson (sore foot) and linebackers Jordan Jenkins (shoulder/ankle) and Kevin Pierre-Louis (shoulder) are questionable, and Bowles said they are all game-time decisions.
