Offensive tackle David Diehl suffered an injury to at least his MCL, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.

"I don't know a heck of a lot," Coughlin said. "I know [Diehl] had some swelling and they were going to do the MRIs and all the testing. I can't really tell you anything right now."

When asked about a report by NBC that Diehl had injured his MCL, Coughlin confirmed Diehl had injured that part of his knee.

"That is the part I do know, but I don't know the extent and hopefully that is it," he said. "I can't tell you anything more than what you are asking me. There's an MCL and don't know anything more."

At the time of his morning conference call with reporters, Coughlin did not have any further updates on running back Ahmad Bradshaw, wide receiver Domenik Hixon or any other Giants who may have been injured in Sunday's 41-34 win over Tampa Bay.

"I don't really know much yet on a day when players don't come in until late," Coughlin said.

The Giants don't have much time for players to recover from injuries. They play on Thursday at Carolina and leave for Charlotte on Wednesday.
