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.

Eli Manning Kate Mara, the daughter of Giants owner John Mara tweeted a photo of quarterback Eli Manning taking a picture of the flooded lobby in his Hoboken New Jersey apartment building. I’m sure Eli isn’t the only Giants’ player that’s flooded in. At least we know he’s OK, and should be able to play this week. “Looks like our QB is good in #Hoboken.twitpic.com/b8u3yd”...
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. Instead, he was first focused on the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, wishing all well. Then, as you might expect, it was down to business.
The pre-practice injury report included a variety of new faces: David Baas (ankle...
New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will have a new deal sooner rather than later according to the New York Daily News.
Cruz said during a radio interview that his agent and the team have agreed on the structure of a new contract.
“From what I hear, they’ve just agreed on the structure right now,” Cruz said on WFAN. “And that’s all I’m at liberty to say...

New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz told Mike Francecsa on 660 WFAN in New York that everything is “moving in the right direction” towards him getting a new contract.
“From what I hear, they’ve just agreed on the structure right now,” Cruz said. “And that’s all I’m at liberty to say.”
Cruz continues to hope something will be finalized soon.
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...
SALSA IN THE CITY
Victor Cruz has been attempting to get a new contract from the Giants, and it looks like the two sides are close to agreeing on a new deal.
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.
(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By TOM CANAVAN AP Sports Writer New York Giants middle linebacker Mark Herzlich isn't preparing any differently for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It's just a little more exciting for the cancer survivor who was the feel-good story of last season after making the Giants' roster.
Herzlich has a chance to get back in...
Giants receiver Victor Cruz (calf) fully participated in Thursday's practice after being limited Wednesday.Fantasy Spin:Cruz' calf injury was never expected to keep him out of Sunday's game. Start him and expect a bounce-back week for the Giants big-play receiver.

As the old saying goes, “As Lawerence Tynes goes so do the New York Giants”…and this week was no different. The Giants were able to hold off a fierce attack as Tony Romo was throwing balls right at defenders with no mercy.
Tynes has had a fabulous season and the Giants are off to a good start. He is 24-26 on the season from field goal range with his only two misses being...
Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reported via Twitter on Tuesday that the NFL says that were was no damage to MetLife Stadium from Hurricane Sandy and that they are preparing to have the Sunday game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Giants played there as scheduled. Vacchiano added that the NFL will stay in close touch with public authorities just in case...
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.
