Week 12 NFC Inactives

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

First, here are the players who ARE active today: Vikings WR Sidney Rice, Falcons DT John Abraham, Falcons LB Sean Weatherspoon, Redskins WR Santana Moss, and Panthers RB Mike Goodson will start at RB instead of Jonathan Stewart.

And the players who are NOT:

Bernard Berrian, WR, Vikings: He's still dealing with a groin injury, and though he's tried to warm up the past couple weeks, he only manages to hurt himself a little worse.

Will Blackmon, CB, Giants: Replacing Blackmon will be CB Aaron Ross, and WR Darius Reynaud will take over the kick-returning duties.

Shawn Andrews, G, Giants: This isn't a surprise, considering Andrews spent a couple days in the hospital this week with a back problem. But hey, at least he's keeping his sense of humor.

Brian St. Pierre, QB, Panthers:
He goes from starting last week to being completely inactive today. He's not even the third emergency QB; that honor goes to Armanti Edwards.

Donald Lee, TE, Packers: This deactiviation wasn't on the radar at all. He hasn't done much offensively, but still, a big surprise. Andrew Quarless will start in his place.

Will Blackmon signs with NYG

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

The Giants, disappointed in their punt return game, have signed free agent DB Will Blackmon, and after he spends the rest of this bye week acclimating to his new squad, he’ll move into that role, writes the National Football Post.

Blackmon led the NFL with the amount of kickoff and punt returns he made in 2008 (91 overall), and he was solid in that role with the Packers, averaging 21.1 yards per kick and 11.0 yards per punt. But he tore his ACL last October, and Green Bay cut him with an injury settlement after determining he couldn’t contribute this season.

But the Giants haven’t been happy with punt returner Darius Reynaud, who’s averaged 5.9 yards per return. Now, they’ve signed Blackmon, who celebrated his 26th birthday Wednesday, to see if he can improve that position.

No word yet on a corresponding roster move.

UPDATE (10:55 a.m.): Here's how the Giants will make room for Blackmon. According to the Newark Star-Ledger, LB Mathias Kiwanuka will be placed on Injured Reserve with a herniated disc in his neck.
