There is nothing more devastating to a football team than multiple injuries at the same position. That’s what the Giants are facing on their defensive line. From the New York Post:
“Only one member of the line that started the season, tackle Fred Robbins, will be available for Sunday’s game against the Redskins at FedEx Field. Even backups are getting prematurely cut down. Veterans off the street are getting signed, and youngsters with no previous experience are getting time.
The only thing fearsome about this foursome is finding enough healthy bodies to take the field.”
Of course, no sympathy will be extended and the Giants certainly don’t expect any. The offensive line that will be facing that depleted unit will be missing 40% of its expected starters, assuming that Randy Thomas is still out with his hamstring injury.
