RB Michael Cox – Cox led the Giants in rushing in the first preseason game with 33 yards (long of 12) on nine carries for a 3.7 average. The rookie running back also wanted to get a shot at kick return last weekend, but there’s nothing you can do about touchbacks. Watch for him on special teams as well as in the backfield.
S Ryan Mundy – This will be the Giants’ first good look in a live game at the hard-hitting safety. Signed this offseason by New York, Mundy will see significant time opposite Stevie Brown with Antrel Rolle (ankle) sidelined. Mundy led the Giants with five solo tackles last week. “He is very knowledgeable, as far as the defense is concerned,” Fewell said. “He does not have the experience and the background that Antrel has because he hasn’t been in the system as long, but he’s very conscientious and working with Stevie Brown, he’ll be fine.”
WR Hakeem Nicks – Tom Coughlin said Friday that he expects his star wide receiver to play on Sunday. It would be Nicks’ preseason debut and first live test after a 2012 season full of injuries. We’ll see how fast or how slow the Giants take it with him on Sunday, three weeks before the start of the regular season.
