Daily Blitz: Rivers works back into defense

Posted by Dan Salomone on October 19, 2012 – 9:00 am

Missing three of the first five weeks of the season with a hamstring injury, linebacker Keith Rivers returned to the field last week in San Francisco. He worked his way back in, recorded a tackle, and his team came out with a big win. But now he’s ready for more this week against Washington.

It comes at a good time with Jacquian Williams not participating in practice this week with a knee injury.

“I think I’ll see a little bit of an increased role coming off the hamstring,” said Rivers, who has nine tackles in three games, including seven in the season opener. “Hopefully those are behind me and continue to move forward. And hopefully I can just compete and contribute however the coaches see fit.”

And as accurate as quarterback Robert Griffin III is (he leads the NFL with a 70.2 completion percentage), the Giants could also use Rivers’ speed against the No. 2 rushing offense, led by running back Alfred Morris.

“They suck you up with the run,” Rivers said. “When you’re thinking ‘run, run, run,’ they bomb you deep or they’re hitting low routes over the middle. He’s definitely done an awesome job for them, and he’s been unexpected. But we know about him and we’re excited for that challenge that he brings as well.”

12:21 — And there you have it: the return game is revealed for the time being. Domenik Hixon back to return first punt.

10:53 — Antrel Rolle makes a nice open field tackle, wrapping up FB Eric Kattani until reinforcements arrived.

Around the locker room: Two weeks from opener

Posted by Dan Salomone on August 22, 2012 – 3:31 pm

Giants.com takes you around the locker room as the defending Super Bowl champs approach the season opener against Dallas on Sept. 5. But first, the third preseason game vs. Chicago. 

LB Mathias Kiwanuka spoke about Keith Rivers’ ability to step into a new defense this year:

“This is not an easy system to pick up but he came in… He dedicated himself. Now what we do out there in preseason, it’s usually very vanilla. Him going through practices and picking up stuff and being moved from one side to the other and being able to just go out there and just his general attitude… add that to his athletic ability; he’s a pretty good linebacker.”

Coming off a victory over the Jets, CB Prince Amukamara preps for his next game:

“I thought my physical play was great. I thought it was pretty aggressive. I didn’t see a lot of action, but I’ll probably see a lot of action this week. There are a couple of things that I can improve on that my coach pointed out to me. I’ve been focusing on that at practice.”

In two weeks, CB Corey Webster will begin his eighth season in the NFL. And who better to kick it off against than the Cowboys?

“It’s nothing you have to get up for. It’s a big rivalry game, Dallas against the Giants. We want to kick the season off the right way, so I think everyone will be up for that challenge. I think the New York Giants will be up for it, I know the Dallas Cowboys will be up for it, and I think it’ll be a good game.”

As he battles a toe injury, CB Jayron Hosley, who had a 77-yard interception return for a touchdown last week, assessed where he is within the system:

“Definitely some improvement from last week to the Jets game. Just knowing where I’m supposed to be. I’m lining up my assignments and techniques got better overall. With making that kind of play, I think that kind of made things a little better. I think it was a pretty good… Not too many plays but I made it count when I got the chance.”

Hixon, Rivers enjoying fresh starts

Posted by Dan Salomone on August 19, 2012 – 12:47 am

OK, so maybe Domenik Hixon’s 4-yard catch on Saturday night wasn’t as spectacular as his acrobatic touchdown almost a year ago. But for it being the first one since tearing his ACL, it’s just as sweet to him.

“It felt great,” said Hixon, who caught his only pass early in the second quarter. “I just feel blessed and I’m having a lot of fun. You’re also playing against a team that you see in your area, a quality team. The energy was up tonight.”

Hixon suffered his second consecutive season-ending knee injury last September on a 22-yard touchdown reception for the highlight reels against the Rams. He missed the preseason opener last week with a tight hamstring, making the Jets game his first one back.

Also encouraged by his continued fresh start was linebacker Keith Rivers, who has started both preseason games in place of injured Michael Boley. Rivers, who missed all of 2011 due to injury, brought it against the Jets, tying Mathias Kiwanuka with a game-high five total tackles.

He was especially impressive against the run, once chasing down Jets running back Shonn Greene behind the line of scrimmage for a loss in the second quarter. He was also part of the Jets’ failed fourth down conversion when he and defensive tackle Rocky Bernard stonewalled running back John Conner for no gain.

“We just went back to the drawing board after week one and just executed the plays the way we know how to play them,” Rivers said. “The second game, guys got a better feel for the game and guys were just working hard. Guys on the back end held the coverage and guys up front, we gave them enough to get to them.”
