The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE
The Giants boast one of the most formidable pass rushes in all of football, but a slew of injuries to their defensive tackles is certainly cause for concern.
On the edge, the G-Men bring back three stars in Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul. The Giants will look to take a fourth DE for back up, and with injuries to Justin Trattou and Adrian Tracy, the nod could go to Adewale Ojomo, a Miami product who notched two sacks on Tim Tebow.
In the middle, Linval Joseph and Rocky Bernard are projected Week 1 starters with Chris Canty still on the sidelines. For good measure, New York will bring a few more tackles along, and expect them to look towards 2011 second-rounder Marvin Austin and Dwayne Hendricks, who recorded a pair of sacks in Jacksonville last week.
Markus Kuhn is a toss-up here, but with practice squad eligibility, he may fall a bit short of the final cut for now. Adrian Tracy's run with the Giants may be over, although "Young Osi" could find a spot on the team if his hamstring holds up.
New York will need any remaining roster spots for their banged up secondary.
DL on Final Roster: Marvin Austin; Rocky Bernard; Chris Canty; Dwayne Hendricks; Linval Joseph; Adewale Ojomo; Jason Pierre-Paul; Justin Tuck; Osi Umenyiora
