  • Giants Officially Place Markus Kuhn on IR, Door Opens for Marvin Austin

    http://www.giants101.com/2012/11/16/...marvin-austin/


    Excerpt: "After New York Giants rookie defensive tackle Markus Kuhntore his ACL in a 31-13 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, it was inevitable that he would wind up on season-ending Injured Reserve (IR). On Thursday, the Giants made it official, shutting Kuhn down for the remainder of the year.

    Because they're on their bye week, the Giants have not yet made a corresponding roster move, leaving them with only 52 active players. However, with no practice until next week, there's no major rush to fill that void, which would explain why they held a very crowded private workoutearlier this week.Still, Big Blue may not jump at the chance to add another defensive tackle. And although familiar faces like Jimmy Kennedy and Marcus Thomas remain available, the team will likely opt to rely on second-year DT Marvin Austin.

    “Hey, it’s time now,” defensive line coach Robert Nunn said. “He’s got to show up, and he’s got to strap it on, and be ready to perform and produce, and there’s no excuses. So we’ll see how that unfolds.” Read more...

      Hopefully, you guys aren't expecting the world from him at this point. Technically, he is still a rookie barely removed from pretty much a two year absence from football.

        I still think he can be a good player for the Giants but I'm not counting on much from him this year. Maybe they work him in a little ate time and he shows something.

            My previous post tells me to give him the benefit of the doubt.

                    Yeah...he's just not that good. And there hasn't been one comment from any coach that would indicate otherwise.

                    Maybe they can just use him in passing situations and maybe use some quickness to make play.
