Giants' Kiwanuka still hurting

Mathias Kiwanuka had a very quiet game Sunday against St. Louis. Wednesday, New York Giants Coach Tom Coughlin admitted that Kiwanuka is still suffering the effects of an ankle injury suffered in Week 1 against Washington.

From Coughlin's Wednesday press conference:

Q: Is Mathias Kiwanuka’s injury still lingering?

A: Yeah, I think it is going to be. Let’s face it, I don’t know that those things really ever get cleared up. But we hope that we have an opportunity to maybe shut him down a little bit. And then maybe he can play without the ankle swelling up on him.

Q: …..during the bye week?

A: Yeah.

Thanks a lot, Chris Samuels! It still ticks me off that the NFL did not fine Samuels for the dirty, unnecessary hit on Kiwanuka in the final play of the season-opening game.


  • It sounds like Bengals' coach Marvin Lewis might not be Ocho Cinco's biggest fan. ... For your entertainment, here is a complete Q&A with Ocho.
  • The Bengals have been terrible offensively, but says Lewis still believes in his offense.
  • Eli Manning says the Giants will not look past the winless Bengals.
  • The Giants are reportedly one of four teams interested in 12-year veteran Hollis Thomas. The 6-foot, 335-pound defensive tackle was just released by New Orleans via an injury settlement.
