New York Giants' Depth Chart Week 2: Mark Herzlich, as expected, at MLB

New, comments

A look at the Giants' updated depth chart for Wek 2.

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The most significant change on the New York Giants' depth chart heading into their Week 2 matchup with the Denver Broncos is one we knew had to be made -- Mark Herzlich taking over at middle linebacker with Dan Connor having been placed on injured reserve.

Newly-signed Brandon Jacobs is listed fourth on the running back depth chart. It would not be a surprise, however, if Jacobs plays significant snaps Sunday. Would the Giants start him, partially in an effort to draw an emotional reaction from the MetLife Stadium faithful? David Wilson, fumbles, missed blocks, messed-up screen passes and all, is still listed as the starter.

A couple of other notes that are not reflected on the depth chart. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell said Terrell Thomas is the team's slot cornerback. Finally, with his role at running back likely reduced, would it surprise anyone if Wilson returns kickoffs Sunday?
