The New York Giants head into their home opener relatively healthy, with the exception of punter Steve Weatherford, who suffered torn ligaments in his ankle against Detroit on Monday. For the Arizona Cardinals, starting running back Andre Ellington has not practiced much this week, and quarterback Carson Palmer is questionable with a sore right shoulder.
The New York Football Giants stumbled out of the starting gate again in 2014, losing an error filled game against the resurgent Detroit Lions 35-21 on Monday night. This week, Big Blue hosts the Arizona Cardinals, who came back to defeat the San Diego Chargers 18-17 in a game also played on Monday night.

The Giants have found their new tight end in Brandon Myers.
Bill Belichick chased after and made contact with a replacement official after the Patriots’ Sunday night loss.
Big names dominate fantasy football drafts, but often don’t pay off. Check out these reaches and sleepers to get an edge.
NFL quarterbacks are padding the injury reports, and their injuries are not only impacting game outcomes but resulting in unanticipated trades.
Jerry Recco began his Wednesday morning update talking about a surprising trade pulled off yesterday between the Cincinnati Bengals (Who Dey!!!) and the Oakland Raiders.
The Knicks fell in Orlando last night to Dwight Howard and the Magic, 116-110. Craig is not worried though, he is still just thankful that the Knickerbockers are giving us something to talk about.
The Knicks lost ugly to the Orlando Magic Tuesday night, but Craigie, ever the optimist, isn’t worried.
Steelers safety Troy Polamalu missed practice for a third consecutive day because of a strained right Achilles’ tendon and a sore calf and is likely to miss Sunday’s game against the Jets.
Chad Ochocinco toned it down a bit for a change. The chatty Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver is never at a loss for words, but he couldn’t bring himself to stir things up the way he usually does.
