Parrish return replacements

Posted by Chris Brown on October 18, 2009 – 3:35 pm

Fred Jackson is the player listed on the official lineup changes sheet as Roscoe Parrish’s replacement on both kickoff and punt returns, but he wasn’t the only guy practicing returns in pre-game warmups.

Josh Reed was practicing punt returns and Terrence McGee was practicing kick returns along with Jackson.

Jackson is one of the most sure-handed players on the team as is Reed, which makes sense considering the windy conditions here at Giants Stadium today. Both teams will need punt catchers more than punt returners today. And the situation won’t be much different concerning kickoff returns either.

McGee I think is a last resort option. He’s nursing a sore knee, so I don’t think they want to give him any extra  responsibilities if they can help it.
