Bad break for E.J. Underwood

Broken jaw for Underwood. Happened on the safety, apparently, though no one really saw it.


Safe to say his season is over, yet again, in the third preseason game. Tough break for a kid who had a chance again to make the roster and contribute.


"You explain it, I certainly can't," TC said. "We really wanted to take a long, hard look at him last night. Then, before you know it, he's gone."


So to answer the comment from the other day -- they won't keep both Underwood and Dockery. Dockery's going to stick, but he had another rough game last night. Depth is really a huge concern at the corner now, if it weren't already.


LB Kawika Mitchell has a strained groin and it sounds as if he's day to day. Wouldn't think of him playing on Thursday, but he could be ready for 9/9 in Dallas.


TC said the Giants won't be starting from scratch with the kicking game. Lawrence Tynes missed two, though one was off a bad snap; Josh Huston then could have sewn up his lead for the job but missed his 42-yarder late. Huston boomed a kickoff out of the end zone, into the wind, so it's safe to say he still leads.


Kudos from TC to Justin Tuck, Osi and the rest of the D-line. Great game for the starting group. Maybe, instead of "Ballin'," the new slogan will be "Michael who?"


Anthony Wright and Tim Hasselbeck... were not good last night. Again. Good question from John Branch of the Fancy-Pants Gazette (Times to the rest of you) about whether the Giants would join the trend and carry only two QBs.


TC wouldn't say, but it's not a bad thought. Neither of the vets has looked even remotely decent.


I asked about Reuben Droughns, who has been rather blah as a running back. He does do other things -- he's been the upback on kickoffs, with good results -- so I don't think he's in any danger of being gassed. But Ahmad Bradshaw, Derrick Ward and Ryan Grant have all out-performed Droughns in the running game.


That's all for now... We'll see if Ol' 92 checks in tomorrow.
