Coughlin on Kiwi playing LB: 'At this point, yes'

Will Mathias Kiwanuka remain a linebacker?

“At this point, yes,” head coach Tom Coughlin said.

So, if Osi Umenyiora is not here, will Kiwanuka play linebacker?

“At this point, yes,” Coughlin said.

Kiwanuka took snaps with the first-teamers at linebacker on Thursday night, and is expected to remain in that role -- at least for now.

“I think he can be productive wherever he plays,” Michael Boley said. “He’s a good, rangy athlete.”

Kiwanuka can also play defense end in a hybrid type of role. He appeared in just three games last season because of a herniated disk in his back.
