This is not the game recap yet, but with how important it is, it may as well be:
List of Physical Scars Left by Giants:
QB Derek Anderson: On the play he got sacked from behind by DE Osi Umenyiora, he suffered a concussion and a bruised right hand. Reportedly, Romeo Crennel is more concerned about the concussion than he is the hand. Right now, it looks like QB Brady Quinn will get the starting nod against the Detroit Lions, and if that's the case, I'd put my money on the Browns signing a fourth quarterback today.
- WR Joshua Cribbs: On the play where DB Mike Adams was called for fair catch interference, Cribbs suffered a left ankle injury. He was seen walking to the team bus with a walking boot, and is scheduled to undergo an MRI today or tomorrow. The roster odds for WR Syndric Steptoe are rising.
- TE Brad Cieslak: Chalk up another concussion (that's what I hate about national coverage in the preseason; they don't inform you of anything past the first units). I guess this explains why TE Darnell Dinkins saw so much action late in the game.
LB Leon Williams: The extent of the injury is not known, but Williams injured his neck during the second half of the game and did not return.
S Brodney Pool: This, perhaps, could be the scariest one. On the Giants' second drive, Pool suffered a concussion while tackling RB Brandon Jacobs. It was his third concussion since joining the Browns.
That's why the New York Giants are the defending Super Bowl Champions; one word defines them: physical.
