Giants rookie edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux spent the offseason program in a red jersey and working on the side with trainers. Thibodeaux’s injury was unknown as Giants coach Brian Daboll declined to say what it was.

The mystery is solved, though, as Dan Duggan of reports that Thibodeaux has a “tweaked” hip.

Duggan adds that the injury is “minor” and Thibodeaux is expected at the start of training camp.

The fifth overall choice had seven sacks in 10 games last season and finished his three seasons at Oregon with 19 sacks in 30 games. He also totaled 126 tackles, including 35.5 tackles for loss.

The Giants are counting on Thibodeaux helping them improve a pass rush that finished 22nd in the league in sacks last season. Jihad Ward is penciled in as the starter opposite Thibodeaux with Dexter Lawrence and Leonard Williams inside.

  1. Travon, Aiden, Kayvon. I’ll be tracking them boys hard for the next few years. Will one of them end up in the playoffs, a superbowl or even a gold jacket? Or none of the above? Stay tuned fam…

  2. On the unofficial depth, Ward is backing up Thibs, Ojulari is starting on the other side with Elerson Smith behind him.

  3. I’ve watched Kayvon during interviews , and I immediately think of NBA player James Harden .

  4. It’s official, he’s a BUST!!!

    May as well hang up the cleats now dude, cuz you’re done!

    [not really]

  5. Well, there goes the Giants season. Pencil them in for a top-5 pick with or without Thibs.

  6. I remember when Danielle Hunter has a tweek…and then missed the whole season…
