Injury Report – Kuhn Done for Season: DT Markus Kuhn tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in one of his knees. He will undergo knee surgery and is done for the season.
“(Kuhn) plays a big role,” Defensive Coordinator Perry Fewell said. “Markus Kuhn’s done a really nice job. Nobody really talks about him and that’s good, because he just comes in and does his job. That’s probably why you don’t talk about him, because he’s done his job. Markus played anywhere from 10-15 plays and those 10-15 plays he would take off Chris Canty, or Rocky Bernard, or Linval Joseph were key plays that he didn’t really make a lot of mistakes. He was very solid in what he was doing. Before he exited the game yesterday, Markus had a pass breakup. I think if you look, he might have two, three, four pass breakups that nobody mentions.”
HB Ahmad Bradshaw will also undergo more testing on his troublesome foot. “He’ll have probably every test known to man here in the next couple of days,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin.
WR Domenik Hixon suffered a high ankle sprain against the Bengals. No word yet on how much time he will likely miss.
LB Jacquian Williams, who injured the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in his left knee in the game against the 49ers and hasn’t played since then, hopes to begin some light running during the bye week.
