First, CBs Terrell Thomas and Brian Witherspoon went down with knee injuries and now second-round pick DT Marvin Austin has a torn pectoral muscle and will miss the entire season as well....This is getting out of hand....
There is little in the hopper to help the corners. The team will have to make a trade, it seems. On the DL Austin will be replaced by veteran Jimmy Kennedy, who was signed today.
On a conference call with reporters today, head coach Tom Coughlin did not rule out the possibility of playing safety Antrel Rolle at CB, but would prefer to make that a permanent thing. Don't know how that would work...who would back fill Rolle's spot - he's a Pro Bowler..
Prince Amukamara's rehab timetable has remained unchanged: Mid-late October.
