New York Giants second-year tackle Matt Peart passed his physical on Saturday and will return to practice.

Peart, the Giants’ third-round pick in last year’s NFL Draft out of UConn, was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list at the outset of training camp this week with a back issue. Peart strained his back earlier in the year and recently re-aggravated it.

Peart is off the PUP list as of today and is the favorite to become the team’s right tackle this season. The 6-foot-7, 318 pounder played 150 snaps over 14 games last season with one start.

The Giants began camp with last year’s first-round pick, Andrew Thomas, at left tackle, Will Hernandez and Shane Lemieux at guard, Nick Gates at center and veteran Nate Solder at right tackle.
