Baker, last of Giants' 3 first-rounders, sprains left knee

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Cornerback DeAndre Baker, the last of the New York Giants' three first-round draft picks, sprained his left knee in practice Sunday.

Baker injured the knee doing individual drills early in the non-contact portion of the workout.

The Giants said an MRI was done after the injury and the 30th pick overall will undergo more tests Monday.

Baker started on Thursday night in the Giants' 31-22 win over the Jets in the preseason opener.

Baker played in 51 games at Georgia, making 34 starts. He had seven interceptions and was awarded the 2018 Jim Thorpe Award, which is given annually to the nation's top defensive back.
