How many different ways can a team fritter away chances to win a game? The Giants (3-7) may have an answer to that question by season’s end.
It’s been a rough week on the injury front for the Giants.
With Jon Beason’s status up in the air and rookie Devon Kennard already sidelined with a hamstring problem, Spencer Paysinger and Mark Herzlich will likely split strong-side linebacker duties next to Jameel McClain for the Giants on Sunday.
While some professional athletes have come out in support of Ray Rice, only to do an about-face in the face of public outcry, the Giants’ Mark Herzlich is no such flip-flopper. He doesn’t want Rice anywhere near the team he plays for.
Giants linebacker Jon Beason could be in for a huge payday. He’s helped hold the Giants’ defense together.
We are giving out three defensive game balls for the first time ever. How can you leave out Justin Tuck with a career-high four sacks or Jon Beason for his 17 tackles or Will Hill for stealing the ball from Pierre Garcon on fourth down at the Giants 49 with 1:19 left?
The Giants may be 0-6, but that didn’t stop linebacker Mark Herzlich from giving Boomer and Craig a call to have a little chat.
Giants starting cornerbacker Corey Webster misses his third straight game with groin injury. He had been listed as doubtful.
The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants are each desperate for a victory on Sunday, so any advantage can prove helpful. With that in mind, this week’s injury report hands a decided advantage to the Eagles, which shows only two players on it. Meanwhile, the New York Giants had eight players who did not practice, in addition to the pending trade of Jon Beason to work with heading into week five.
It’s expected that Beason will challenge Mark Herzlich for a starting spot at middle linebacker with the Giants once he learns the defensive scheme. The Giants rank 21st in overall defense.
An upbeat Tom Coughlin is promising a more physical team. And if practice was any indication Wednesday, there was a little feistiness to the workout.
The Giants turned over the ball six times in their 36-31 road loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Jayron Hosley and Stevie Brown are going for MRI tests Sunday after suffering injuries in Saturday’s game against the Jets.
The coach’s mission was accomplished. Tom Coughlin got every eligible player in the game as the Giants beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, 18-13 Friday at Heinz Field.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin has more than a few questions about how to sort out his roster as he enters the preseason Saturday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, so every snap takes on greater importance — especially for his younger players.
