The Giants added Will Blackmon to the roster last week mostly to replace IR’d cornerback Bruce Johnson. The fact that he is an accomplished kickoff and punt returner was an afterthought.

Now it’s the primary thought.

Darius Reynaud, who was probably playing for his job against the Seahawks, isn’t even making the trip. He hurt his hamstring on Friday at practice and has now been ruled out for the game. Blackmon will in all likelihood handle the return jobs.
