Michael Cox expected to get some carries this week for the Giants

According to Dan Graziano of ESPNNewYork.com,  Giants rookie running back Michael Cox could play a role in this week’s Monday night game against the Vikings.

Rookie Michael Cox got an increased workload in practice Monday and could play a key role in the Giants’ “Monday Night Football” game against the Vikings next week. But the Giants are working out running backs this week to see if there’s anyone available who can help them.

Now that the Giants have once again released Da’Rel Scott and Brandon Jacobs is banged up,  Cox should get some carries this week.
