He was a warrior today playing through pain but sometimes these things are worse the next day. Not only do the Giants need guys to come back against the 49ers, they can not lose anyone else, especially Bennett.

I hope he is okay too. That said, Pascoe is no slouch himself. Next man up!

I guess Robinson is the shark? I don't know, I just googled "unicorn bear" for that pic...

They need all hands on deck. I hope they can get back Bernard, Rivers, Hosely, KP, and Nicks. Hopefully Nicks is healthy and not rusty.

I'm not worried about the receiving game... especially if nicks is on the field in any capacity. We just dropped a 40 burger on Cleveland. Yeah, SF is a lot tougher of a squad, but we'll still put up points on them. It's a lot more important for Rocky, Rivers, Hosley, and KP to be active. The first two are important to stopping SF's power run game. Hosley will be needed to isolate Crabtree (at this point, I could see Prince basically taking Manningham out of the game), while KP (along with Rivers) will be needed to keep Davis from getting too much production.

The Browns have nothing in common with the 49ers. The need Nicks to play and to play well, not just show up. The odds are that they will not run he ball all that well so they will need all their receiving tools active and productive.

He should be fine. We definitely need him moving forward and he came back and played.

Every one keeps thinking in terms of him as a receiving target.

but MB was an absolute MONSTER in the run game today.

our running game is looking better every week, or at least every 2 weeks, and he's one of the big reasons.

zero % they'd play him if he had anything to worry about. looked a lot worse than it was, he's lucky he didnt plant that foot otherwise it woulda been gruesome...he'll be fine.

yeah he had huge blocks on almost every good bradshaw run

The hyper-extended knee injury definitely did not look good on the replay. Kudos to Bennett for continuing to play the rest of the game. Hope he'll be 100% for the 49ers game.

Whether it turns out productive or not, the Giants will still have to run the ball on some plays just to keep the San Fran defense honest because they're decent at defending the pass too with Goldson back there. In a game like that, it would be very helpful if the Giants defense got turnovers off the 49ers offense in addition to the Giants offense not feeding the 49ers defense with turnovers.

i was blown away. we haven't had a blocking TE like this since shockey, and even he didn't blow guys up like Bennett did in this game.

I noticed that Bennett had very good blocks today which led to nice holes for AB.

Now, if we could run on the 9'ers like that...oh man...but let's face it that is wishful thinking lol

He was hobbling badly . In Wilson's TD run he was practically blocking in one leg. Don't know how he's doing but Big Blue is going to need him on the field next week at SF. He bring a lot to the table in the running game and always a threat down the field on seam routes.

Not sure why the coaching staff would keep him out there on a bad leg (knee) risking further injury knowing we are already paper thin at the recieving dept and with the niners on deck. If he misses any extended time due to this then it was really not smart on their behalf IMO

I hope he is will be there for us against SF, he's a huge asset. San Fran has the #1 D against the run and #2 verses the pass, we will need all hands on deck next week. Maybe need to try that up tempo no huddle ...

Once we were 3 scores up. The D should have been unleashed and Bennett should have been sat down.

in an article in "news and notes" Bennett said Bradshaw asked him to try to get back on the field to block for him.

I did the same thing to my left leg once. I planted it as I was place kicking in football practive just messing around. Well, since I'm not a kicker and shouldnt have been kicking, I hyperextended the crap out of my knee when I went to plant it. Hurt something wicked

It hurts like hell for about 20 min but its walkable and you can play through the pain (as Bennet has shown). In my case it didnt get any worse the next day, but I dont think it got any better either. He should be ok for the 49ers. Im sure of it.

They did all the tests/work for any ACL MCL PCL damage and I'm sure it all came up negative or he would NOT have been back in the game. Just a hyperextension...it hurts but its not the end of the world

SF is no joke. We need EVERYONE we can get for this one. IMO, SF is still the best team in the NFL and better then last year. We need to knock em down a peg.

Didnt they leave Steve Smith out there after his serious knee injury not knowing it?

I don't know about everyone.

Clearly his primary benefit has been the running game; I love his run blocking. He might be the best run blocking TE the Giants have had in decades.

As far as being a receiver, he's getting there and hopefully he'll continue to improve although I'd be surprised if he has yet to make anyone forget Kevin Boss.

cant recall but I trust them to know when a player cant play or can play without further injury....
