New York Giants' fans might not have to watch David Diehl play right tackle Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. That is because Diehl, re-inserted into the starting lineup last week in place of Sean Locklear, could well be at right guard Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
That is one of the Giants' options with right guard Chris Snee (ankle) missing a second straight day of practice on Thursday, and with speculation increasing that Snee will not play Sunday. Another option could be playing Jim Cordle in Snee's spot, but it would seem more likely that Diehl would play guard and Locklear would slide back in at right tackle.
The good news for the Giants was that wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, who skipped Wednesday's practice due to recurring swelling in his knee, returned to the field.
Here is the Giants' complete injury report for Thursday.
Did Not Participate in Practice CB Michael Coe (Hamstring) S Kenny Phillips (Knee) G Chris Snee (Ankle) LB Jacquian Williams (Knee)
Limited Participation in Practice LB Chase Blackburn (Hamstring) RB Ahmad Bradshaw (Foot) DT Chris Canty (Groin) WR Hakeem Nicks (Knee) C David Baas (Ankle/Elbow) TE Bear Pascoe (Ankle) LB Keith Rivers (Calf)
