With Giants left tackle Will Beatty out of commission due to a detached retina, the man who most recently played left tackle for the Giants will slide back out to the blind-side position on the New York offensive line.

Per a league source, guard David Diehl will replace Beatty, who could be out for the rest of the season.

Beatty is the latest player to be injured this season. Though the Giants have been able to overcome much of the adversity, the Giants currently have lost two games in a row, and the schedule gets no easier. They play the Saints, Packers, Cowboys, Redskins, Jets, and Cowboys to finish out the season.
