Giants notes: Still plenty of uncertainty surrounding Eli Apple's status

"I wasn't confused. It was just a mistake by me", Apple said Thursday. Rather than deny he was posting on social media while the game was being played or even make excuses for breaking team rules, Apple acknowledged his wrongdoing and accepted the Giants' punishment. Apple has been inactive the past four games for a variety of reasons, ranging from missing practice as he attended to a personal matter to injury to lack of practice reps.

Apple now has been inactive the past four weeks with hip and back injuries. Worked with the scout team.

While Mara said he hopes that Manning, 36, will return for a 15th season in NY, he also said the team could use its first-round pick-which is likely to come within the top five-on one of this draft class' highly rated quarterbacks: USC's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, Wyoming's Josh Allen and Louisville's Lamar Jackson.

"Of course. I'm blessed to be where I am right now", Apple said.

He also added that Apple's struggles were mental and alluded to the personal issues he was dealing with often.

The way Apple handled Sunday didn't qualify.

-Giants interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo has named defensive tackle Damon Harrison as the team's defensive captain. He says he wanted to play, but was held out because he'd not had enough work in practice. He declined to comment after the game, saying he wasn't allowed to talk. He reportedly nearly walked out on the team last month after facing internal criticism for his play in the Giants' infamous 31-21 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Apple retweeted a post made by an Ohio State Fan Club's account celebrating the 81-yard touchdown reception of Cowboys running back Rod Smith against the Giants. Smith and Apple were teammates with the Buckeyes.

It has been a unusual season for Apple.

"I guess he don't remember things", Collins told reporters Thursday when told about Apple's denial.

"I've had some discussions with him [Manning], but I'd rather keep that between him and me", Mara said.

Briefs: Giants president and co-owner John Mara told Newsday at the owners meetings in Irving, Texas, on Wednesday that he expected the team would begin interviewing available candidates for the vacant general manager job next week. Football is something I love to do. "It's a blessing. Something I don't want to take for granted".

"I don't want to pass judgement on a kid's attitude or character".
