Will Blackmon handles returns for Giants

The New York Giants ruled out return specialist Darius Reynaud for today's game in Seattle because of a hamstring injury and he'll be replaced by Will Blackmon. When he was with the Green Bay Packers in '08, Blackmon was pretty explosive returning punts. He had two punt returns for a touchdown that season, including one that covered 76 yards.

The Giants haven't been getting much out of Reynaud and they seemed ready to make a change even before Reynaud was injured. If Blackmon, who plays safety, can provide a spark in the return game, Reynaud will become expendable.
