Last week, tight ends were in short supply. Today, it's quarterbacks.
Thanks to that gaping hole in Eli Manning's head and Jim Sorgi's sore shoulder, the whole practice went to Rhett Bomar. But that was sort of expected. The good news is four tight ends are practicing. The only one out was Jake Ballard, but Travis Beckum, Scott Chandler, and none other than Kevin Boss came a-runnin' when offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride called for a tight end. No word from up north on whether Dave Tollefson is taking any more snaps there.
Also sounds like Jeff Feagles went right to work on inconsistent punter Matt Dodge, and he responded by hitting several gorgeous ones. And then he shanked one. Inconsistent. In all, eight punts for 48.4-yard average and 3.74 hang time. Not bad, but has to get rid of the bad ones. He was lucky to get 44 yards out of that flopper Monday night.
