Excerpt: "Marvin Austin (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/14025/marvin-austin) can finally say it.

"I'm an NFL player now," the defensive tackle said Friday with a laugh.

The second-year defensive tackle played in his first NFL game, getting 17 snaps in the Giants' 36-7 win over the Panthers on Thursday night.

"It was a great experience. Dream come true," Austin said. "Just to go out there and run around with the guys and show my brand of football."

Austin was active against Tampa Bay on Sept. 16 but didn't get in. He did not register a tackle Thursday in his first non-preseason game since his junior year of college.

Austin had last played a meaningful game in 2009, in the Meineke Car Bowl with North Carolina in 2009. He was suspended for his senior season in 2010. After being drafted by the Giants in 2011, he missed his rookie season with a torn pectoral muscle he suffered in the preseason." Read more...

We can only hope the Anchorman can make it through the season...reps are what he needs before there's even any thought of him being a big contributor imho

I'm VERY happy that he's finally on the field and we get to see what the young man can do. Pray to G** he stays healthy.

Cheers to you Marvin for fighting through it and getting on the field, now lets knock the rust off and show everyone what you are made of... We're going to need you against Vick and the eagles.

I want to see this kid make a difference this season...I don't care when, just as long he progresses quickly and more-so into the post-season!
