With Adam Koets out for the season and David Diehl apparently gone for the game against the Cowboys at least (and quite possibly a few beyond there), Giants center Shaun O'Hara is certainly needed. Will he be available?
"I’m optimistic," O'Hara said on Sirius NFL Radio this morning. "I’m frustrated, that’s for sure. I don’t know what the prognosis is for this week. Obviously, with some other guys getting dinged I’m pushing even more to get back out there but ultimately the doctors and trainers are going to decide what’s best for me and what’s best for the team.”
O'Hara missed the Seahawks game with a LisFranc sprain in his foot which he suffered against the Cowboys on Oct. 25. He said last week that he hoped to miss only one game, and he's certainly capable of playing on Sunday without practicing much this week.
If O'Hara can return, it would mean Rich Seubert could move back to guard and the Giants wouldn't have to put either rookie Mitch Petrus or recently un-PUPped Kevin Boothe in that spot. Seubert plays center with O'Hara and Koets out.
