EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Ryan Mundy is no longer waiting for an NFL starting job. The New York Giants just gave him one.
Mundy, a free safety, was given the gig Saturday night when Stevie Brown tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Brown was returning an interception in the Giants' 24-21 overtime loss to the Jets.
The injury was fluky. Brown planted his foot and his knee gave out. And it certainly was not the way Mundy wanted a starting spot, but that's the position he's in less than two weeks before the season opener at Dallas.
The five-year veteran has to develop chemistry with Antrel Rolle in a hurry, and that might be tough. Rolle, after all, is returning from an ankle injury and is not likely to play Thursday at New England in the preseason finale.
