    The Giants’ already-decimated secondary took another major hit Wednesday when it was revealed that rookie and projected starting free safety Xavier McKinney has suffered a fractured left foot that will require surgery. McKinney, the Giants’ second-round draft pick (36th overall) out of Alabama, was slated to start alongside strong safety Jabrill Peppers in a DB unit already without starting corner DeAndre Baker, who is on the exempt list after being charged with four felonies for an offseason armed robbery in Florida.

    It appears the Vikings have hit a stalemate with star running back Dalvin Cook regarding a potential contract extension. While both sides surely were hoping to get something done by now with training camp in full swing, according to NFL Network, contract talks have broken off with neither side able to come to an agreement.

Just being on the field, being around the guys, being in the locker room. That never was a thought that came towards me.” It’s understandable why Cook wants a raise, looking at some of his counterparts from...
