Head coach Brian Daboll provided an update on Tommy Sweeney after the Giants tight end suffered what the team called a “medical event” at practice on Wednesday.
Ahead of Thursday’s practice, Daboll said Sweeney was “still going through some evaluations,” but that he was “not going to get into anything specific.”
“I don’t want to say he’s OK because I’m not a physician,” Daboll said, via Bob Brookover of NJ Advanced Media. “I saw him this morning … and I just want to let everybody know he’s in good spirits and he’s doing all right.”
The head coach said that Sweeney’s father was in the crowd at practice and was brought into the team’s practice facility to see his son.
“Any time someone goes down, it’s always a scary thing,” Daboll said.
Sweeney was down for “several minutes and being worked on by multiple medical personnel” before eventually being carted off of the field, according to reports from practice. The Giants released a statement after practice that the former Don Bosco Prep standout was “stable, alert and conversant.”

The Giants have placed center J.C. Hassenauer on injured reserve with a tricep injury and signed interior offensive lineman Sean Harlow, the team announced Tuesday.
“He’ll be out long term,” head coach Brian Daboll said Monday about Hassenauer. “He got a tricep. He’s going to end up having surgery, which is too bad.”
Harlow, 28, played the past two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, making eight starts in 32 games. He was a fourth-round pick in 2017 by the Atlanta Falcons and appeared in just one game for the team in 2019.
The 6-foot-4, 284-pound Harlow played center for 64.9 percent of his 228 snaps last season, with the rest coming at left guard. However, he was at left guard for 83 percent of his 441 snaps in 2021, with the rest coming at center.

He had a chance to compete for the starting center job, along with rookie John Michael Schmitz and fourth-year pro Ben Bredeson.

A day ahead of the team’s first training camp practice, the Giants have placed six players on the physically unable to perform list. Anyone placed on the PUP list can be activated at any time.
Headlining that group are wide receivers Sterling Shepard and Wan’Dale Robinson. Both players are working their way back from knee injuries they suffered while playing with Big Blue last season.
According to Art Stapleton of USA Today, Shepard has looked good in his recovery and he isn’t expected to stay on the PUP list long. Robinson is also progressing well, but he may be a bit further behind.
New York also placed free agent signing DT A’Shawn Robinson on the PUP list as he works his way back from a torn meniscus he suffered late last season in a game with the Rams.
Robinson missed the final seven games of the regular season due to the injury.
The other three players we won’t see out there during practice tomorrow include cornerback Aaron Robinson, defensive tackle D.J. Davidson and guard Marcus McKethan.
Additionally, veteran wide receiver Jamison Crowder (calf) will be sidelined with a non-football injury.
