Found October 31, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
New York Giants linebacker Chase Blackburn sustained a hamstring injury last weekend during the team’s contest against the Dallas Cowboys. The injury will keep Blackburn out of this Sunday’s matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he will be replaced by Mark Herzlich, reports Mike Garafolo of USA Today. Herzlich will likely be in for starting middle linebacker Chase Blackburn, who is expected to miss the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a hamstring injury, according to a person informed of Blackburn's status. Herzlich started two games for the Giants last season before suffering a high ankle sprain that sidelined him for the remainder of the year. Following his injury, New York signed Blackburn as his replacement. While Blackburn has played well, it will be interesting to see if Herzlich, who’s been hampered by injuries over his short NFL career, can show he’s worth a roster spot if he gets the start this weekend.

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz will practice; More from an afternoon tea with Tom Coughlin

The New York Giants are 6-2 once again, but head coach Tom Coughlin wasn't interested in that as he took the podium for his weekly press conference.

The pre-practice injury report included a variety of new faces: David Baas (ankle...

Seeing 3: Giants consider using a trio of safeties

Stevie Brown has not only taken Kenny Phillips' job at safety with the New York Giants, he's given defensive coordinator Perry Fewell his three-safety defense again. Fewell used Phillips, Antrel Rolle and Deon Grant in a safety package much of last season as a way to improve pass coverage while not losing anything against the run. But when the Giants failed to re-sign Grant...

Antrel Rolle cleared for contact, Kenny Phillips says he’s playing this week

Even though safety Stevie Brown has been playing great this season, it looks like he’ll have to give up his starting job with Kenny Phillips now getting healthy. Phillips told the media today that he’ll be ready to go for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. I expect Brown to start this week since the Giants will likely gradually bring Phillips back in the fold. After suffering...

Fantasy spin: no one goes hungry in Denver… enough points to go around

In the days leading up to the week 8 contests I posted an article deriding a fantasy analyst who suggested that a fantasy GM simply could not start Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks at the same time because they both played for the Giants. As it turns out, both players turned in duds but the moral is that the fact that one fantasy owner starts them both, shouldn't matter. Just look...
