Coughlin said he will decide later in the week – perhaps on game day – whether John Carney or Lawrence Tynes will do the placekicking in the San Francisco game.
“I haven’t decided yet who will kick this week,” Coughlin said. “This week is like every other recent week. I am going to let these guys kick all week and I will make a decision at the end of the week.”
Carney has made all 12 of his field goal attempts while substituting for Tynes, who has been rehabilitating a knee injury. Yesterday, Tynes told reporters that he was going to return to action against the 49ers.
“While I appreciate Lawrence’s enthusiasm to get back on the field, I haven’t decided yet who will kick this week,” Coughlin said. “When I do, I will make that announcement.”
