DE Mathias Kiwanuka looks like he'll be ready to go after a near escape from serious injury on the final play of Week 1's game against the Redskins. 'Skins' Tackle Chris Samuels took down Kiwi by the ankles as the Giant's DE beat him and Samuels' body fell on top of Kiwi's legs.

Also of note, rookie LB Jonathon Goff could make is first appearance as a Giant after suffering fractured transverse process in the first game of the pre- season.

Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger provides his preview for this Sunday's game here. In it he discusses how the Rams' injuries on the offensive and defensive lines will affect the match-ups at the line of scrimmage.

Finally, in this week's "Big Blue Hits," a radio segment on featuring LB Danny Clark and S Sammy Knight, yours truly gets a shout-out. You'll notice at the end of the show Danny Clark refers to a fan in China who posted a question on his website. That fan in China was me!
