    At least five Giants -- offensive tackles Will Beatty and James Brewer, defensive tackles Marvin Austin and Martin Parker and cornerback Terrell Thomas -- have had back issues during training camp, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com reports. Multiple players believe the small mattresses at the University of Albany, most of which were provided by the Giants, may have played a role in the back injuries. Some players even purchased their own mattresses to bring to camp. "Yes, I really do," defensive tackle Linval Joseph said when asked if the beds really have something to do with players suffering back injuries. "I really do. Beds. I mean, everybody has been complaining about their back because the beds in the dorm are fairly hard. My back be hurting, too. I think it is just the bed." Tight end Martellus Bennett said his back is fine but admitted the beds on campus are a bit tiny. "We are big humans," Bennett said. "Every bed is small. You can't put a damn dinosaur in a twin-sized bed ... all the beds, unless you got a California king, the beds are going to be small to these guys. If a normal-sized human jumps into a regular-sized bed, it fits perfectly. A large big human jumps into a regular-sized bed, the bed is too small."
