Pre-game updates

Lemieux to start

Multiple reports are indicating that Shane Lemieux will get the start for the Giants at left guard on Thursday. When starting left guard Ben Bredeson went down Sunday, Mark Glowinski filled in. Glowinski had been replaced at right guard for that game by Marcus McKethan. His appearance at left guard was his first since 2016.

Lemieux entered training camp in both 2021 and 2022 as the starter at left guard only to have injuries derail both seasons. He appeared in only one game in each of those seasons.
