The Giants previously stated that Golladay avoided a very serious injury. However, the Pro Bowl wideout will still have to miss at least a few weeks.
According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, the Giants expect Golladay to miss two-to-three weeks due to his hamstring pull.
Golladay was seen grabbing the back of his left leg after a reception on the first play of 7-on-7 drills on Tuesday.
New York’s medical staff will take a cautious approach to Golladay’s situation, especially since he missed most of last season because of multiple injuries.

Golladay, 27, signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Giants this offseason. He’s expected to be Daniel Jones’ top target in the passing game.
“Kenny’s worked real hard, and I feel good about the progress we’ve made,” Jones told reporters. “So we’ll keep working.”
If Golladay isn’t ready to go for Week 1 of the regular season, New York’s passing attack will need to rely heavily on Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Kadarius Toney.
The Giants should learn more about Golladay’s status for Week 1 fairly soon.
