Four Giants unable to perform as camp opens

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- The New York Giants have placed wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and defensive lineman Chris Canty on the physically unable to perform list to start training camp.

Coach Tom Coughlin said Thursday after the team reported and held a conditioning drill that tight end Travis Beckum and linebacker Clint Sintim also would start camp on the list.

Nicks broke his right foot in Organized Team Activities in late May. Coughlin said the starter has not suffered any setbacks, but is not ready to play. Canty had arthroscopic knee surgery in February to "clean out" a few things.

Beckum tore his right anterior cruciate ligament in the Super Bowl win over New England. Sintim missed last season after tearing the patella tendon in his right knee in the preseason.
