New York Giants rookie cornerback Deandre Baker was scheduled for an MRI on Sunday after he “felt something” in practice, coach Pat Shurmur said.

The 2019 first-round pick (30th overall) from Georgia had one tackle in Thursday’s preseason opener against the New York Jets.

Baker, 21, has been working with the first team at cornerback opposite veteran Janoris Jenkins during training camp.

Baker started 12 games for the Bulldogs last season, registering 40 tackles, two interceptions and nine passes defensed.
