I am having a tough time this morning digesting the serious neck injury New York Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka was diagnosed with Friday afternoon.
Friday morning I was listening to a cheerful, upbeat Kiwanuka on WFAN with Boomer & Carton. He was giving traffic reports as he drove to the Timex Performance Center for practice, defending Tom Coughlin and talking optimistically about the rest of the Giants season.
Today, Kiwanuka has a bulging cervical disc and is out of the Giants lineup indefinitely.
This is a huge blow to the Giants defense -- a revamped group that has played well in two of three games thus far.
