Giants coach Tom Coughlin said that Kuehl suffered a "severe strained calf" when he stepped awkwardly during practice Tuesday evening. However, reports state that Kuehl also suffered a partial tear in his Achilles' tendon. As a result, it now seems highly unlikely that Kuehl will play for New York this season, if at all ever again.
In Kuehl's absence, several players, including a pair of rookies, have been given the opportunity to fill his shoes.
"Well, we have some snappers here and that's the good thing," Coughlin said. "We have (Zak) DeOssie, who has been doing it since day one. (Grey) Ruegamer, who has been doing it. (Jay) Alford, who has been doing it. (Shaun) O'Hara, who can short snap. Fortunately, we do have some people that have done this. We will get them a lot of work now, obviously."…
Today's play of the day came on the final play of practice. During a goal-line drill, Brandon Jacobs absolutely flattened middle linebacker Antonio Pierce en route to the end zone.
