Giants vs. Seahawks - injury update: D.J. Fluker is questionable (knee)

New, comments

The Giants might have to reshuffle their offensive line again

NFL: New York Jets at New York Giants Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants have announced that right guard D.J. Fluker is questionable for Sunday afternoon’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fluker was added to the injury report with a knee injury.

If Fluker is unable to play through the knee injury, the Giants will likely move Justin Pugh back to left guard, bumping John Jerry back to right guard, and Bobby Hart would once again start at right tackle.

The Giants found success running behind the line of Ereck Flowers, John Jerry, Brett Jones, Fluker, and Pugh — averaging 130 yards per game on the ground in the three weeks that Fluker has played right guard. Facing the Seahawks’ talented defensive front, the Giants would certainly prefer to take the field with what has been their best offensive line combination to date.

If Fluker is unable to play, he will join Olivier Vernon, Weston Richburg, and Jonathan Casillas on the inactive list.

As Pat Traina notes, Fluker is a tough-minded lineman who loves the game. If he can play through the injury, he will.
