Draft Scout Eric Herman News
08/09/14 - G Eric Herman has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season for a violation of the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy, the league announced Friday.
Herman will be eligible to return to the Giants' active roster on Friday, Sept. 26 following the team's game against the Washington Redskins. Herman is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.
"The NFL requires a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) for permission to take certain medications," Herman said in a statement. "I have a TUE for one medication, but not another stimulant that treats the same condition. Unfortunately, a stimulant for which I don't have a TUE was in my body, and the rules are very strict, so I am taking responsibility and I sincerely apologize to my teammates, coaches and the club. This won't happen again, and I will spend the four weeks working hard to be ready to return to work."
Herman, who was a seventh-round pick from Ohio last year, spent most of the season on the practice squad. Herman is the third Giants player who has drawn a suspension this offseason. Cornerback Jayron Hosley drew a four-game ban in June for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Safety Will Hill was also suspended, and he was subsequently released.
06/01/14 - WR Mario Manningham (knee) and LT Will Beatty (leg) will not be participating in the spring OTAs.
Coach Tom Coughlin said he anticipates having those guys "by the fall," opening things up to speculation regarding either of those players' availability for training camp.
Currently, the Giants have been working Charles Brown and James Brewer at left tackle.
Also not participating in the second OTA was offensive lineman Eric Herman, who is recovering from offseason hip surgery.
