Shaun O'Hara set to return as Giants battle for 1st in East

While the New York Giants figure out how they’re going to juggle things at wide receiver the rest of the way with veteran Steve Smith sidelined for the season, help is arriving in another area where they’ve been forced to play musical chairs because of injuries.

Veteran center Shaun O’Hara is expected to return for Sunday’s key NFC East showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles. He’s missed the previous six games with a sprained Lisfranc ligament in his right foot.

The Giants have listed O’Hara as questionable, but he practiced all week and indications are he will start, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

"I feel good," O'Hara said. "I feel relevant again, which is nice. I don't think I'd say I'm healed, but I think it's to the point now where I don't know how much better it's going to get. So you know what? We just got to go. I don't think I could wait much longer or the season would be over. It's now or never.”

O’Hara has been the only injury the Giants have dealt with on the offensive line. There was a revolving door at left tackle until David Diehl returned from a pulled hamstring.
