Tommy DeVito has ‘earned’ right to keep starting, says Brian Daboll

After Sunday’s loss to the New Orleans Saints, head coach Brian Daboll said undrafted free agent rookie Tommy DeVito would remain the New York Giants’ starting quarterback.

Daboll reiterated that on Monday morning.

“He’s earned it,” Daboll said. “It’s not always going to be perfect, but he’s earned the opportunity to play.”

DeVito has now played in seven games, starting the last five. The Giants are 3-2 in those starts. DeVito earned two NFC Offensive Rookie of the Week and an NFC Offensive Player of the Week honor in those three victories.

Against the Saints, DeVito was 20 of 34 for 177 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. He took seven sacks, was checked at one point for a concussion and appeared to be hobbling at the end of the game.

Daboll said DeVito was “just sore” on Monday.

Placekicker situation

Randy Bullock left the game after injuring a hamstring on the kickoff following his 56-yard field goal on Sunday. Punter Jamie Gillan filled in, making a 40-yard field goal. The Giants have placekicker Cade York on their practice squad. Daboll said he would know more on Wednesday as to whether or not the Giants would need to make a roster move at that position.
