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.
