Giants Releasing Ereck Flowers if He's Not Traded by Tuesday Afternoon

With an open spot on their practice squad as the result of this shuffle, the Giants also announced that kicker Marshall Koehn, who was with the team during the preseason, had been signed as insurance for Aldrick Rosas, who missed practice on Monday with a sore quadriceps.

But he wasn't - unfortunately his play reinforced he was part of the problem, and that was evident from the first offensive play of the season when he was reduced to trying to trip Jaguars star defensive end Calais Campbell after being beaten badly to the inside. "It's week-by-week (in the NFL) so you never know".

But when the Giants' offense took the field for the ensuing possession, Wheeler was back out there.
