BBI Giants-Steelers Game Preview: Our preview of the upcoming Giants-Steelers game is now available in the Game Previews and Reviews  section of the website.
Diehl Re-Gains Starting Job: It was revealed yesterday that David Diehl, who has not started since week two when he suffered an injury to the medial collateral ligament (MCL) in his right knee, has re-gained his starting job at right tackle. Sean Locklear had been starting at right tackle for the past six games.
“(Offensive Line Coach Pat Flaherty) said, ‘You’re not being benched because of your play,’” Locklear said. “‘You’ve been playing good; you’ve done everything we’ve asked. It’s just the guy can’t lose his job from minor injury.’ I kind of expected it, I just didn’t know when it was going to happen. (Diehl has) been here 10 years, he’s started virtually every game. So I understand where they are coming from.”
Tynes Named “NFC Special Teams Player of the Month”: PK Lawrence Tynes has been named the “NFC Special Teams Player of the Month” for his performance during the month of October.
In four games in October, Tynes was 13-of-14 on field goal attempts and 12-for-12 on extra point tries. He also had nine touchbacks on kickoffs.
Injury Report: Not practicing yesterday were TE Bear Pascoe (ankle), LB Chase Blackburn (hamstring), and LB Jacquian Williams (knee).
