According to Mike Vorkunov of the Newark Star-Legder, Sean Locklear will start at left tackle for the New York Giants on Wednesday night.

“Locklear will be protect Eli Manning’s blind side on Wednesday night instead of projected starter Will Beatty, according to someone informed of the team’s plans for this week’s game.

“The person, who requested anonymity because personnel decisions aren’t supposed to be discussed publicly, said Beatty is expected to dress but will serve as a backup and perhaps a tight end in certain formations, as the team attempts to advance his recovery from a nagging back issue,” wrote Vorkunov.

Even though Locklear looked a little shaky against the Bears and Julius Peppers, he didn’t give up any sacks.  This week of course, he’ll have to face DeMarcus Ware of the Cowboys.

CB Michael Coe is the marked man on NYG defense

Cornerback Michael Coe knows Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will test him when the New York Giants open defense of their Super Bowl title. It's a given.

Quarterbacks Quarterback Eli Manning was obviously locked in and backup David Carr was as close to locked in as you can get because the only other quarterback competing for a spot was Ryan Perriloux and he never really made it much of a battle for the backup job.
