The Giants are going to try another offensive line combination this week as D.J. Fluker will get the start at right guard, per ESPN"s Jordan Raanan.
This will be the team's third combination on the line that has struggled in its first three weeks. John Jerry will shift over to left guard while Justin Pugh will stay as right tackle with Bobby Hart still out with an ankle injury.
Fluker's area of expertise is in the run game, and the Giants are hoping it translates on the field against the Buccaneers.
"Yeah, he's a strong man and if we have certain concepts where he's at the point of attack, that's been a strength of his in the past, when you look at some of the things he did in the preseason," OC Mike Sullivan said. "It certainly could be an asset, you could say."
This week, Fluker will have the opportunity to win over head coach Ben McAdoo who will put Hart back in the mix once he's healthy.
"Again, every week is a new week. We go one week at a time," McAdoo said. "Certainly, when Bobby gets healthy, we'll put him in the mix somewhere and we'll see how it goes. But again, every week is a new week."
A first round pick by the Chargers back in 2011, Fluker started all 59 games he played with the team before joining the Giants. He has only seen special teams snaps this season.
