When Kareem McKenzie sprained his right knee against the Buccaneers in Week 3, he walked without a limp after the game, smiled and answered questions about his injury by saying, "What injury?"

 

Sunday night, after spraining his left knee in a loss to the Eagles, McKenzie walked with a heavy limp. And upon his face, a scowl. The indications were he was hurt worse this time - and it turns out he was.

 

The Giants' starting right tackle has a sprained medial collateral ligament and could be sidelined for a few weeks, according to coach Tom Coughlin.

 

"He's been characteristically a fast healer," Coughlin said, "but I don't know how that would be."

 

McKenzie missed the game against the Cardinals with a groin injury suffered the previous week against the Saints. He returned the following week to face the Eagles in Philly.

 

With McKenzie sidelined, rookie William Beatty will play right tackle. Beatty has played well this season and stepped in admirably last night, though he did have one play where Eagles DE Juqua Parker bull rushed him and pressured QB Eli Manning.
