When the New York Giants suffered a rash of injuries at the defensive tackle position last week, they made a flurry of roster moves. The most interesting, and maybe the one that will pay the biggest dividends, was the signing of Marcus Thomas.

The 6-foot-3, 315-pound Thomas played five seasons for the Broncos. He started 11 games last season. He will be eligible to play as a member of the Giants for the first time on Friday when they face the Chicago Bears in their third preseason game.

"We’re anxious to see him play a little bit. It’s kind of a very interesting story for a guy that started and played 11 games last year," Coughlin said. "They’re not easy to find."

The Giants have Linval Joseph and Rocky Bernard starting. With Chris Canty, Marvin Austin and Shaun Rogers currently shelved, rookie seventh-round pick Markus Kuhn and former practice squad player Dwayne Hendricks have been working with the second unit. There is, obviously, an opportunity for Thomas.

Friday night we see if he can make anything of it.
