EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Giants got some players back Tuesday, but may have lost some players as well.
Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and cornerback Corey Webster, who both missed time last week with groin injuries, returned to action. And guard Chris Snee (hip) and defensive back Terrell Thomas (knee) were activated off the PUP list and participated in their first practice of training camp.
But offensive lineman James Brewer left practice early, and running back Ryan Torain and safety Cooper Taylor got dinged up as well.
Brewer, who has been working with the first team at right guard in the absence of Snee, suffered a head injury and a possible concussion. Torain was slow to get up after getting knocked down during 11-on-11 drills. Taylor suffered a strained hamstring.
Coach Tom Coughlin didn't have any further information on those three after practice.
Nicks, Webster, Snee and Thomas were eased back into action, seeing limited reps.
Offensive tackle Justin Pugh (concussion) sat out practice again, but was on the field with the team. "He's feeling better," Coughlin said. "He was out today, he had his helmet on, he was running on the side. Hopefully that's a good sign."
Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (back) remains on the PUP list, but was outside doing some running as well. "He's done exactly what he's been asked to do," Coughlin said, when asked about Pierre-Paul's rehab. "I'd say he's making good progress."

Fullback Henry Hynoski (knee) and defensive tackle Markus Kuhn (knee) remain on the PUP list as well.
