New York Giants OG David Diehl is going to undergo surgery on his thumb. The recovery for that type of surgery takes around 6 weeks.

I am not sure if he is going to miss any time because of the surgery though. He has been practicing with a cast on his right hand and probably could play with the cast on that hand. It wouldn’t be the easiest to play with a big old cast. It would be tough to grab onto jerseys and such without a thumb.
HOLDING? WHAT’S THAT?
If he were to miss time to rest the thumb, he will be out for 6 weeks.
