The Eagles aren’t the only team on Sunday Night Football this week dealing with a fresh wave of injuries.
The Giants are expected to be without linebacker Michael Boley, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw is expected to miss his third straight game according to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger.
The Giants may make both players “gametime decisions” but it looks like they will be out.
Both players will be tough to replace. Don’t underestimate Boley’s impact this year for the Giants. The team’s linebacker group is very thin and he’s consistently played well.
The team has often played a “big nickel” defense with three safeties, in part to keep rookie middle linebacker Greg Jones off the field. Jones and fellow Jacquian Williams figure to play much bigger roles this week.
