Injuries...

olsen will probably be a big part of the gameplan if RT is a question... lots of TE chips, hopefully releasing upfield after that. i expect olsen will have a big day.

I bet the players freaking hate short weeks.

the good news is the giants have to face a short week too, and they're even more banged up than we are.

more good news: we'll have a week and a half to prepare for the falcons.

Sometimes they use a piece of the hamstring to replace the ACL, i wonder if that has anything to do with it.

They use patellar tendon or cadaver tendon 99% of time.

As expected, an MRI conducted on the right knee of Giants offensive lineman David Diehl reveals an injury to his MCL, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

That’s good news for the Giants, since it’s not an ACL injury.

The MCL, a rope-like ligament, can regenerate without surgery, unless it’s fully torn. In this case, Diehl’s MCL isn’t fully torn. It’s currently unknown, however, how much time he’ll miss.

as i mentioned before, he's their starting RT.

I would like to know what type of surgeries hes had done. From what I hear from people who have both types of surgeries done is the cadaver is a lot easier/quicker rehab than the pt graph and much stronger feeling.

This is actually a situation where most Giants fans, while not happy per se (never root for injuries, especially on your own team), aren't concerned with the injury. Diehl has been one of the worst lineman in the entire NFL these last couple of season, and I would have loved to have CJ going against him rather than his backup.

It will come as no surprise to New York Giants fans that PFF rates David Diehl of the Giants as the least efficient pass-blocking tackle in the NFL over the past three seasons. PFF divided total pressures (sacks, hits, hurries) allowed and divided that by snaps played at tackle. Diehl came up with an NFL-worst plass-blocking efficiency rating of 92.30.

Showing a sense of humor, PFF wrote that the Giants' tackle has an "impressive ability to give up pressure." That, I am sure Giants' fans already knew.

They are actually much better off shifting Locklear to his natural RT position and putting Beatty back in at LT.

Short weeks are never good and you hardly ever come out of a game unscathed. If I had to guess though Davis will rest and Bell will more than likely play unless its serious. Im just happy we have to face the Giants at home and not travel on a short week. You know they are hating that.

oh well....there's got to be an advantage there somewhere.
