Herzlich expected to get first defensive snaps

M. Herzlich

Mark Herzlich’s recovery from cancer has been a terrific story to follow this year.

The former Boston College linebacker made the Giants after going undrafted. He’s been interviewed for 60 Minutes and the Today Show while playing on special teams for New York.

On Sunday, Herzlich is expected to take the next step in his pro development. Look for him to get his first snaps on the Giants defense.

Linebacker Michael Boley won’t play for the Giants Sunday, and Herzlich is expected to help fill in on some sub packages. It’s another cool step in what has been a great comeback story.

“Watch out for Herzlich now,” Mathias Kiwanuka told the Newark Star-Ledger. “He’s going to play well.”
