Williams didn't receive his first handoff until the third quarter with the backups. He scored from 1-yard out in the fourth quarter. He finished the game with 11 carries for 49 yards and a touchdown. Through four exhibition games, he has compiled 151 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.

Injury
Toe - Questionable for Week 1 at Detroit
Damontre Moore
News
After losing defensive end Justin Tuck to the Raiders, the Giants are hoping 2013 third-round pick Damontre Moore "can make a big leap and be an impact/breakout player at defensive end on the side opposite Jason Pierre-Paul," reports ESPN.com. Moore barely made an impact as a rookie, finishing with 11 tackles and a forced fumble in 15 games.

The report called Moore "a high-energy athlete capable of making plays" but noted he "still made far too many mistakes in practice, even late in the year."

Defensive back Terrell Thomas (knee), defensive linemen Damontre Moore (hamstring) and Linval Joseph (ankle), and linebackers Mark Herzlich (toe) and Zak DeOssie (back) were all able to play through their injuries Thursday.

Walter Thurmond
News
Free agent cornerback Walter Thurmond agreed to a one-year contract with the Giants, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. He played in 12 games for the Seahawks last season, recording 32 tackles and a forced fumble and returning an interception for a touchdown.

Victor Cruz
News
Giants receiver Victor Cruz believes he can catch 100 passes in Ben McAdoo's version of the West Coast offense. The scheme features a lot of quick, short throws; that should benefit Cruz, who usually lines up in the slot.

"If there is any offense to do it in, it’s definitely this one," he told the New York Daily News. "It’s definitely a little bit more pass happy than the offense we’ve had in the past. I think I’m a guy that’s capable, so hopefully we can get that done hopefully. Obviously, that comes with wins and all that good stuff."

Cruz caught a career-high 86 passes in 2012.

Johnathan Hankins
News
Giants defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins is poised for a breakout season in his second year, according to the team's website. With Linval Joseph's departure, Hankins will play a lot more and "provide upper-echelon play at defensive tackle down in and down out," the website said.

A second-round pick out of Ohio State, Hankins played in 11 games last year, making 16 tackles.

Justin Pugh
News
Giants right tackle Justin Pugh has bulked up to 315 pounds, reports The Star-Ledger. "I put on about 10 pounds," Pugh told the paper. "I feel very good. I'm stronger than ever and now we're going to start running -- get that going. Continue to get better and continue to work hard."

The 6-4 Pugh played his rookie season at a little over 300 pounds. Pugh said he did not add the weight for a potential move to guard.

Ryan Nassib
News
Second-year pro Ryan Nassib is firmly entrenched as the Giants' backup quarterback, reports The Star-Ledger. Nassib has picked up the new offensive system quickly, the paper said.

"Really smart," Danny Langsdorf, the team's new quarterbacks coach, told the paper. "I think he’s done a great job, especially in our no-huddle periods of just being able to get guys lined up, whether we’re in a two-minute situation or whatever situation we’ve been in he’s done a great job of just getting us in a correct formation, getting us lined up.

"He’s just got to keep working on executing, whether it’s a throw or timing with the receivers, he’s just got to continue to work with those guys but he’s been very good to this point in terms of studying and learning."

Zak DeOssie
News
The Giants are missing a handful of defensive contributors in Week 6 against the Bears Thursday, but five of eight players listed on the injury report from that side of the ball were able to play.

Dallas Reynolds
News

All five players entered the week probable on the team's injury report. Hillis is coming back from a concussion.

Henry Hynoski
News
Giants fullback Henry Hynoski suffered a sprained shoulder during Thursday's preseason finale against the Patriots, per the New York Post. Hynoski was bothered by a shoulder injury last season. It remains to be seen if it's same shoulder. He is competing with John Conner for the fullback job, leaving his status to make the final roster uncertain.
Jameel McClain
News
Giants linebacker Jameel McClain, who left Tuesday's practice with a foot problem, was a full participant Wednesday. "He did well," coach Tom Coughlin said. "He came out and practiced and went the whole practice, so I think he’s fine. A little sore, but he was able to go."
