" Preseason Notes.. Starters to Go Deeper, Lunacy to Continue "
Tom Coughlin, in a desperate attempt to prove that the injury to Clinton Portis was the result of the inescapable hand of fate, has announced that the Giants starters will begin the next preseason game against the Chiefs and "likely play into the second quarter.. depending on the number of snaps they get." Given that the general trend is to play your starters more extensively as the final preseason game approaches, I hope this doesn't mean Eli and Tiki are going wire-to-wire in Game 4. Coughlin has also indicated that Rob Johnson, who saw no time during the 17-16 win over the Ravens, will play the second half.

On other fronts, rookie speedster and preseason no-show Sinorice Moss is having his strained quad examined by doctors to determine the extent of the injury. Moss hasn't practiced since the first day of training camp, nearly three weeks ago. A more thorough evaluation may be a little overdue.

Chiefs, tomorrow night, 8pm.
