NFL Rumors: Could Sean Locklear Start at Left Tackle For the New York Giants?
The New York Giants brought in Sean Locklear as a veteran insurance policy along the offensive line. Locklear is someone who can play at both the left and right tackle spots. The Giants may have to cash in on that insurance policy, probably a little earlier than they actually wanted to.
Will Beatty was supposed to be the starting left tackle for the Giants this season. Coming off of two injury plagued seasons, the hope was for him to start and last through the entire season. It’s possible he may not even start the season. Beatty has an injured back from weightlifting early in the offseason and wasn’t able to participate in the offseason training program as much as he or the Giants would’ve liked.
Beatty was able to make it through the first week of practice but now his back has acted up on him again. He was taken out of practice early. Head coach Tom Coughlin was concerned about him, because of the fact that he was slowing down so much during drills. James Brewer may be another option, however, he has an injured back as well and hasn’t been able to practice.
The leaves Locklear and possibly David Diehl to start at the left tackle position. The Giants really can’t expect Beatty to stay healthy for a full season. He hasn’t done it before and until he does, you can’t expect him to do it. If the back injury persists expect Locklear to step in and take the left tackle spot. If he fails to perform, the Giants may have to get outside help.
