Inactives

Basically, the draft class is not suiting up tonight:

CB Shawn Springs is hurt (calf) as is rookie S Kareem Moore (hamstring) and second-round pick WR Malcolm Kelly (knee).
The rest are healthy scratches, to use a hockey term.

Draft pick TE Fred Davis, T/G Chad Rinehart, DE Rob Jackson are out. Colt Brennan is the No. 3 QB. LB Albert Fincher, not a draft pick, is also sitting it out.

If not for Spring's injury, fourth-round pick Justin Tryon would likely be out as well.

As for the Giants, the inactives are:

K Laurence Tynes
RB Reuben Droughns
CB Sam Madison
S Terrell Thomas
LB Jonathan Goff
T Adam Koets
DE Dave Tollefson
WR Mario Manningham (a Giants 2008 draft pick)

Dude, what's with highlighting the fact that the draft class is sitting out? Who cares? Why are we obsessing over evaluating Vinny instead of focusing on the fact that actual games are being played? It's time to put aside petty differences and focus on writing well and covering the team well in an unbiased fashion.

Tynes is inactive? Is this due to an injury (I would assume so)? Obviously they must have someone else kicking, just seems weird that the kicker is inactive.

Springs out is really gonna hurt.

Plenty of the draft class in active as well Jason. Can't resist a shot at Vinny can you?

Surprise -- four out of ten rookie draft picks are active: Devin Thomas, Chris Horton, Justin Tryon, and Durant Brooks + traded players Erasmus James and Jason Taylor + FAs Justin Hamilton and Justin Geisinger...

Not bad; considering previous draft picks (excluding LaRon Landry) required 6-8 games of seasoning before they were ready to play.

BTW, both the coaches and players all praised CB Tryon earlier in the pre-season. I suspect the Jacksonville game was just a piece of humble pie from the defensive coaches to knock down the (over) confident rookie and teach him a lesson on why playing in the scheme matters...

They had to activate Durant. Un-effing-believable.

Good question, I don't know answer. Could be their #1 PK is injured, but will be healthy soon. Or they ma y use one occasionally for depth on kickoffs. Or one has been inconsistent. They probably won't carry 2 for too long.
