    Giants dealing with key injuries

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river

    Excerpt: "With only three days between their Week 2 win against the Buccaneers on Sunday and their Week 3 date with the Panthers in Charlotte, there isn't much time for the Giants to recuperate. And they could sure use more time.

    Ahmad Bradshaw (neck), Domenik Hixon (concussion) and David Diehl (knee) all didn't practice this week and although Tom Coughlin was short on details today he did indicate their chances of playing Thursday are slim.

    "We're holding out against all odds that they're going to feel better, but we're taking it day-to-day," Coughlin said when asked about Hixon and Diehl's status." Read more...

    I don't know about anyone else, but I would like to know what's the severity of the injuries to Diehl and Bradshaw? I know Hixon has a concussion, but is it some kind of secret that Coughlin and/or the medical staff is not saying what the respective MRIs showed for Bradshaw and Diehl? Does Bradshaw have a sprained neck? something more? Is Diehl's MCL injury, a sprain? partial tear?

    Regardless I feel confident enough in Brown to carry the load at RB along with Wilson and Scott for this game. As for Diehl, let him rest. I think Locklear and Beatty can hold the fort at the tackle positions. Even those this is a short week for the Gmen, it would give Bradshaw and Diehl more time to rest up before the Eagles.

    The NFL was meant for Sundays and MNF!!

    Hixon has to be really kicking himself. The last time he went down with an injury, Cruz came up big. I wish the guy could catch a break. At least it's not career ending.

    Bradshaw I am not too worried about. Brown can be the catalyst. His style is more punishing and I think he and Wilson can produce together better.

    Diehl has meant alot to the organization for awhile, however I would be concerned no matter how small a tear he has is. This may be the opportunity for someone to grab the bull by the horns. Maybe someone that didn't do all that well in the preseason all of a sudden shows up.

    I want everyone healthy but the offense put up 600+ yards of offense and 41 points on the board.
