Giants won't "cross that line"

It looks like Sam Bradford will be able to play with the injured right index finger. But how long can he last, particularly if the Giants decide to make that area of his hand a target?

Linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka said he would “plead the fifth” when asked if he or his Giants teammates would be aware of the injury on every pass rush.

“There's a line between playing tough and playing dirty," Kiwanuka said. "You just don't cross that line."

Well, not everybody does. Kiwanuka said he has experience being on the other side of the situation.

“If it were something with me, I would protect (the injury) because I would expect people to be coming after it,” Kiwanuka said. “Now, I have a history of that, going back to college, having an issue with the leg and having guys literally after the play chop my legs out. So I am very, very conscious of the fact that if something is on the injury report, it is going to be attacked. I don't know if everybody necessarily feels that same way though.”
