Former UGA star Deandre Baker got some good news about his knee injury.
Baker, the first-round pick by the New York Giants, left Sunday’s practice after “feeling something” in his left knee. There were fears that Baker might’ve torn his ACL.
However, the speedy cornerback underwent an MRI, and the test results showed no damage to his ACL. He is listed as “day-to-day” by the NFL team.
Up to the injury, it has been strong preseason for Baker, who has taken the majority of first-team reps since rookie minicamp started, per NJ.com’s Matt Lombardo.
Baker, who won the Jim Thorpe Award for the NCAA’s best defensive back last year at UGA, signed a four-year contract with the Giants expected to be worth $10.5 million.
