There have been reports that Giants pass rusher Mathias Kiwanuka “could” miss 2-3 months with a bulging disk in his neck. Kiwanuka, however, expressed optimism that he “could” play soon. Like next week.
Kiwanuka told the news to reporters after Sunday night’s Giants win against the Bears. Bob Glauber of Newsday writes that Kiwanuka will visit a neck specialist tomorrow for a second opinion on his neck.
It’s hard to know if Kiwi is just being overly optimistic or perhaps he could play through the injury. The Boston College product is in a contract year.
