The Giants listed starting LT Ereck Flowers (ankle) as questionable for Monday’s game at Miami, meaning there is a 50-50 chance he will play. And a 50-50 chance that Bobby Hart will.
If Flowers can’t go, Justin Pugh would move to left tackle and Hart, a rookie, would get his first career start at left guard. He started last week at right tackle for an injured Marshall Newhouse.

Hart said he expects that if he is on the field, Ndamukong Suh will be across from him — even if that’s not where he traditionally lines up.
“When we played Washington, (DT Jason) Hatcher was playing over the left guard and when I came in at right guard he came in over me,” Hart said. “I’m pretty sure the same thing will happen. If he sees that I’m in at guard, I wouldn’t be surprised if he came over.”
What’s more, Hart is excited for the opportunity.
“He’s definitely someone I look forward to competing against,” Hart said. “I hold myself to a high standard and I feel like, what’s a higher standard than Ndamukong Suh? ... I can’t pick who’s on top of me. He comes over there, I have to do my job. Coach doesn’t want to hear ‘Oh, it’s Ndamukong Suh.’ (Coach Coughlin) is going to come over and say: ‘Block.’ That’s what I’m preparing myself for.”
DE Robert Ayers Jr. (neck) and S Brandon Meriweather (knee) were declared probable for Monday’s game. The Giants did not practice on Saturday but projected that Ayers would not have participated if they had … LB Devon Kennard was ruled out.
