Canty on crutches, Carr will weigh options

When we left the fieldhouse this morning after our daily peek at practice, Chris Canty was playing with the rest of the team. The next time we saw him he was limping through the locker room on crutches (really big crutches for a really big dude, I might add).

Apparently the defensive tackle who has been snakebitten by injuries (so many that one might actually have been a snake bite, I've lost strack) sprained his knee on the second-to-last play of practice. He was having the medical team look at and having tests done, but he shouted to teammate C.C. Brown in the locker room that it was a sprained MCL.

It's been one of those seasons for Canty, who I'm sure can't wait for 2010 to start just so 2009 becomes a memory.

As for David Carr, he's a free agent after this season. And after two years as a backup, he might be looking to go someplace he can actually play on Sundays.

"It'll be interesting to see what happens," he said.

Last year Carr re-signed with the Giants before free agency began and he had a chance to hear offers from other teams. He also said that the Giants and his agent have been talking about a deal for 2010. The team loves having him as an experienced, capable backup to Eli Manning, and he's also very helpful during the week guiding the scout team against the defense.

"The Giants have been phenomenal," Carr said. "I'm going to give them all the chance in the world to bring me back. And I'd love to be back. But we'll see what's out there because I want to play again."
