Giants OT David Diehl Says He's 100 Percent, Wants To Start
Since David Diehl sustained a sprained MCL in the first quarter of the Giants' Week 2 win over the Buccaneers, the Giants have surrendered three sacks in five games and revitalized the rushing attack. They've done it with veteran free-agent acquisition Sean Locklear moving from left to right tackle to replace Diehl, and Will Beatty inserted at left tackle.
Diehl returned in Week 6 against the 49ers, but wasn't given his starting spot at right tackle; he's been limited to the jumbo tight end role in his two games back. And though Diehl said he feels 100 percent this week for the first time since he suffered the injury, but isn't sure if he'll regain his starting spot.
"You donít assume anything," Diehl said today when asked if he thought his starting position would be waiting. "You would hope so, but like I said, the fact that if it doesnít happen, Iím not, donít get me wrong, I would love to be starting, I would love to be back out there, thatís what Iím here for, thatís what Iíve always done. But, like I said, if that doesnít happen, itís not going to change the way I feel about Sean. Itís not going to change the way I feel about our coaches and our staff. Iíve been hurt. Iíve been out. Thereís nothing I can do to change that."
