Giants news, 12/5: Tom Coughlin addresses San Bernardino shootings

New York Giants headlines, Saturday, 12/5.

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Saturday morning headlines.

Coughlin on San Bernardino shootings

We learned on Thursday that a cousin of Giants' safety Nat Berhe was one of of the victims in the San Bernardino shootings. Friday, Giants coach Tom Coughlin called the slaughter "a sad, sad situation" and said everyone, players included, is affected by what happened.

"Well, how can you not be? How can you not be? You're a citizen of this country and you have this circumstance that's taking place in our country and just, why? And how? Where's the value of life? What do these statements mean? What in the world are we up against? I think that they are affected by it, no doubt. They're very aware of what has transpired. I'm sure they join all of us in wishing it would stop and it wasn't a part of our world today, but unfortunately, it is," Coughlin said.

Big day for Weston Richburg

Center Weston Richburg missed last week's game with a high ankle sprain. He is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the New York Jets. When the Giants practice today Richburg will test his ability to move and anchor.

"We'll see tomorrow (Saturday) morning," Coughlin said on Friday.

"Hopefully I'll be able to go," Richburg said. "I'm looking forward to being out there again. I think (coach Tom Coughlin) wants us all out there. Tomorrow will be a big day.

"You have to be able to anchor in the pass pro, and push some guys around in the run game, as well. We'll be testing it for sure tomorrow to see how well I'm able to do those things."
