Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Here is your Saturday morning notebook.

Rookie Markus Kuhn and second-year man Marvin Austin, bit players thus far in 2012, could have big roles Sunday with defensive tackle Rocky Bernard out with a quadriceps injury. Head coach Tom Coughlin said Friday "we play with what we have." Kuhn and Austin are what the Giants have.

"I have to step up since Rocky is down," Kuhn said. "I've been practicing all week like I always have and now it's time for me to go out there and improve what I can do even more."

"I know for myself and Markus Kuhn, it's a big opportunity and to whom much is given, much is expected," Austin said. "So we've got to go out there and be prepared and step up."
