The Giants Defense just took a tremendous hit.

Ugh. Another positive from our game last night - no serious injuries for either team (at least that I've heard of). That sucks.

ouch. poor dude and poor giants. their division is tough enough as it is and they werent even favored to win it.

EDIT: i just read his respons scrolling in the crawl and it sounds like he may atleast consider it (if and when contacted)

This is the fear I have going into every pre-season, and why I can understand why a lot of veteran players don't particularly care for the games. Tough, tough loss for the Giants.

What a HUGE blow to the Giants D. I won't be too surprised to see Strahan putting the pads on again and getting out there on that field.

My sentiments exactly. We can argue all day about how the games are played, but I'm just wanting to get through preseason with all our players healthy and in one piece. Charlie's broken collarbone was just too close for comfort.........the next crisis may not be so easily remedied.

One more to go....................

Yep, we got through the main "dress rehearsal" preseason game relatively unscathed. Next week should be fine - one series for the starters (if that long) and then the backups and "bubble" players take the field.

Tough hit for Giants - preseason injuries are brutal - when I first saw Foote getting hit from behind last night I was afraid he had injured his achilles tendon

Strahan has a good TV gig and went out on top like Betttis - I doubt he is anywhere close to gameday conditioning and assume he will stay out
