The New York Giants have made it official. Defensive tackle Chris Canty will be active for the Giants’ division showdown with the Washington Redskins tomorrow. He has been fit on to the roster with running back Da’Rel Scott being put on injured reserve. This will give New York the depth they will need on the defensive line to chase Robert Griffin III around the field.
I would not expect Chris Canty to play a lot. But if he can give the Giants a solid 10-20 snaps, that would be great. Canty is excellent against the run and both him and Linval Joseph will be a stabilizing force in the middle of the defensive line. This game between two division foes will come right down to the wire and it just might be the Giants’ defensive line that influences the outcome of the game.
