Several injuries took place in Sunday’s thrashing of the Seattle Seahawks:
• Backup Center Adam Koets is done for the season with a torn ACL. Tom Coughlin explains the situation below:
“Adam was running out to the right sideline right in front of our bench and all of the sudden went down. Apparently it caught his shoe, his cleat, and he just twisted the wrong way. When we got to him, the doctors were just in the process of evaluating him but he told me he felt good and I didn’t think it was anything. Naturally, with all the different types of MRIs, etc., the ACL was shown to be an issue.”
• David Diehl sustained a hip injury and multiple reports have surfaced that suggest Diehl also partially tore a hamstring. The Giants are waiting on giving official word to his status but multiple reports indicate he’ll be out Sunday at home against the Cowboys.
• Hakeem Nicks suffered an ankle sprain late in the game, but is reportedly doing fine today.
Now… With O’hara’s status questionable, the offensive line will be much thinner than I’d like heading into a matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. Mitch Petrius will likely see action. Will Beatty’s status isn’t certain — but he’s doing individuals this week again according to Tom Coughlin. Does Bear Pascoe play Offensive Line as well as TE and FB? Let’s hope so.
Speaking of guys owning their new roles – Richie Seubert did and excellent job at center, Diehl did well at guard, and I thought Andrews did extremely well at tackle. Chris Snee is appartently without issue, and Kareem McKenzie, other than one less shoe in his closet, is fine too. But exactly who plays left guard and center will be something to watch for this week at practice.
The Cowboys after all still have a few guys playing for them that can give Eli a big problem this coming Sunday afternoon.
