'Super Bowl-6-2' photo (c) 2012, Stephen Luke - license: Although the New York Giants won a wild game over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, they also lost quite a bit with offensive lineman David Diehl and running back Ahmad Bradshaw suffering potentially major injuries.

The good news for Diehl, who got caught under a pile of players in the first quarter, is that initial tests confirmed he did not suffer an ACL injury. However, his MRI results have not been made readily available and head coach Tom Coughlin had no further updates after the game. It has been speculated that his injury is of the MCL variety – still possibly a long-term issue.

Bradshaw, meanwhile, left the 41-34 game in the second quarter on Sunday after suffering a neck injury. He was immediately taken for X-Rays, which were negative, but is scheduled to undergo an MRI this afternoon at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

In addition to Bradshaw and Diehl, cornerback Michael Coe and wide receiver Domenik Hixon each suffered injuries of their own. Coe had his hamstring tighten up and Hixon was diagnosed with a concussion after taking an illegal hit courtesy of Bucs linebacker Mason Foster. Neither would return to the game.

Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (foot), running back Andre Brown (foot) and fullback Henry Hynoski were also shaken up during the contest and received treatment afterwards.

The Giants will head to Carolina on short rest to take on the Panthers this Thursday.

    Someone go find Kareem at the local Y and see if he’s in shape

    The Giants are going to have to sign a CB it looks like
    Coe looks to be in that chronic hamstring situation
    Prince’s return is still unknown
    Tryon is terrible

    as for RB, what’s the word on Andre Brown? Didn’t see anything during the game

    This Thursday is going to be tough
    Nicks will obviously be questionable with the ankle; Hixon out; Bradshaw out; Coe out
    if brown can’t go and Prince can’t come back, the team is going to have some serious gaps to fill

    Good new on Diehl. I know most of 101 including me wants to keep the configuration of the OL that finished the game but we need him for depth. I worry that if his injury is real minor that TC will insert Diehl back in right away but if we play a few weeks well without him probably won’t.

    Bradshaw is interesting because I want to see more of Brown and some Wilson. We need all the good players we can to stay healthy. A few weeks without Bradshaw might also serve the greater good. But I’m not giving up on Bradshaw being effective because he never got a chance to run behind this OL.

    The same with Hixon. We actually should get to see Randle, Barden and Jernigan. With the game being Thursday I doubt Coe plays if he tweaked his injury again. So he along with Diehl, Bradshaw and Hixon are likely out. I’m thinking Prince should play if he was close this week. I’m wondering if Rivers sits out another game just to insure he’s good for the long haul and we have depth at LB.

    Hope all is well. I have to admit, yesterday’s thrilling win was a flashback to last year. If anything, it reaffirms my confidence that this team, at the very least, has a puncher’s shot with anyone they play. Credit goes to a Tampa team that played better than I thought was possible.

    Now that I’ve had time for the bourbon and afterglow of the game to wear off, here are a few of my thoughts:

    As someone who grew up with the late 80′s early 90′s Giant teams, I never in a million years would have expected 500+ passing yards. Truly incredible, and that makes me wonder what Eli could do if he had an elite oline. They held up well, Eli wasn’t sacked once.

    Who needs a #3 receiver? It’s pretty clear that the combo of Eli, Nicks, and Cruz will be enough, at least during the regular season. Bennett and his dropsies haven’t been cured.

    While I’m nowhere near ready to abandon the call for an improved oline, the more immediate need is in the secondary. Something needs to be done, but what? For those who are calling for a trade, the only way that will happen, is if the Giants are out of it by week 8, in which case you could see NY swap Osi for a younger nickel corner with promise. Highly doubtful, and merely speculative.

    Finally, let’s all be happy we’re 1-1 and back in the swing of things. Carolina is a dangerous team, but if NY can come out of this shortened week with a win, they’ll be well prepared to deal with the likes of more athletic QB’s, including Rogers, Vick, and Robert.
