Michael Boley Injury: Giants Linebacker Day-To-Day With Hamstring Injury

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said Monday that both linebacker Michael Boley (hamstring) and cornerback Aaron Ross (quad) would be “day-to-day” this week due to their injuries. Coughlin, however, then went on to sound as though he does not expect Boley to play Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles.

“The guys who are going to play will have an entire week of practicing,” Coughlin said.

When Boley went down before the end of the first half Sunday he was replaced by rookie undrafted free agent Spencer Paysinger, who saw his first extended action of the season on defense.

Paysinger and Jacquian Williams could be called upon to play larger roles if Boley is unable to play. Another concern would be who would call the defensive signals, which Boley has been doing since he is the team’s most experienced linebacker.

The Giants also have rookie middle linebacker Greg Jones. Mathias Kiwanuka moves back and forth between linebacker and the defensive line.
