David Diehl, T, Giants (knee): Diehl headed to the locker room after getting hurt on a play near the Tampa Bay goal line and he did not return. Tom Coughlin did not know the extent of Diehlís injuries Sunday, but the Giants found out more on Monday.

Carroll: Dave Diehl was in a lot of pain and with good reason. An MRI showed a Grade II tear of his MCL. He wonít need surgery but he will miss a couple weeks as it heals, probably about four. His effectiveness when he returns will be based on how well he adjusts to the knee and any limitations. Diehl wasnít wearing a brace when injured, but surely will be when he returns. I still donít understand how players and teams donít use them more to avoid injuries like this.

I hope he recovers fully and, in the meantime, that we find a successful long term alignment on the Oline/

hope DD heals well. Sometimes things like this have a postive effect on the rest of the team.

Honestly having our O-line the way we originally envisioned it, with Beatty and Locklear at tackle, has improved it already. DD has declined too much to really be a starter anymore, and he has been banged up bad with our team.

I love the guy and thank him for his decade of selfless service to this team, but honestly he belongs in our Ring of Honor now, not our O-line...

we all know that. But after his recovery if the oline seems intact and successful he will most likely "selflessly" take his place as a backup.

Oh don't get me wrong I don't mind him as a backup this season, but I hope he hangs up the cleats after the season is over. He deserves a rest.

He probably will. He seems like a pretty level headed guy. Coaching material maybe someday.
