Finn out for season

Just read on Ernie Palladino's Giants Journal that the Giants have placed Jim Finn on injured reserve, ending his season before it ever started. According to Palladino, Finn has a torn labrum.

I don't exactly see this as a big blow since the Giants have been making noise about replacing Finn, anyway.

It does leave wide open the question of who will play fullback. I would hope this opens up the possibility that the Giants will use some two-back sets with Brandon Jacobs and Reuben Droughns, or with one of those guys and whoever earns the third-down back role.

I'm just dying to see a little creative thinking here. You guys think offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride might be up to that?
