Mathias Kiwanuka Out With Bulging Cervical Disc

Defensive end/linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka will not play Sunday for the New York Giants due to a bulging cervical disc.

As the Star-Ledger reports, this is the injury that ended Antonio Pierce’s season — and ultimately his career — in 2009.

This is stunningly bad news for the Giants. Kiwanuka has been used at defensive end, defensive tackle and linebacker and leads the team with four quarterback sacks.
