Center Shaun O'Hara Misses Second Straight Practice

Looks like it might be time to start considering replacements for New York Giants Pro Bowl center Shaun O'Hara Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.

From Pat Traina:

C Shaun O'Hara, whom head coach Tom Coughlin revealed is back in a walking boot in hopes of getting his ailing ankle and Achilles injury back under control, missed his second day of practice. O'Hara, who in the past said that rest is going to be the best cure for what ails him, is likely to be kept on a managed practice schedule all season long, as the Giants are hoping that the injury doesn't force their Pro Bowl center to miss any playing time.

This is really the worst-case scenario for the Giants. Nominal backup center Adam Koets has never started an NFL game in four seasons, and in fact has played only a few meaningful snaps. Starting guard Rich Seubert could also play center, but that requires another change in the line.
