EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Less than a week after getting their running game going, the New York Giants‘ offensive line is suddenly in flux.

Blame it on injuries.

Adams Koets, who has started at center the past two weeks, sprained his right knee in Sunday night’s win over the Chicago Bears. That, plus the fact that Pro Bowl center Shaun O'Hara has been sidelined with an injured left ankle, had the Giants (2-2) playing musical chairs at practice on Wednesday.

Left guard Rich Seubert moved to center. Left tackle David Diehl took over Seubert’s spot and former Eagles Pro Bowler Shawn Andrews replaced Diehl. The right side of the line was unchanged with Chris Snee at guard and Kareem McKenzie at tackle.

What happens on Sunday in Houston against the Texans (3-1) remains to be seen.

Koets isn’t worried.

“It’s only one day,” said Koets, who said his knee feels much better. “Everybody has played all these positions. We’ll practice and hope it’s not an issue for the game.”

If Koets can’t play, then the situation becomes much more iffy.

O'Hara had said his left ankle had improved over the weekend. However, he tried to run on Tuesday and had problems, coach Tom Coughlin said. That probably makes him doubtful for Sunday.

Seubert has played center and Diehl has years of experience at guard.

Andrews is the question mark. He played guard for the Eagles and didn’t join the Giants until the team broke training camp at the University at Albany in mid August. He has worked him at guard and tackle, but recently has taken almost all his snaps at tackle since a foot injury sidelined backup tackle Will Beatty.

The last time he said he started a game at tackle was “neveruary.”

“It’s been a long time,” said Andrews, who also has played some tight end in run situations.

Coughlin indicated he probably will play Diehl at tackle in practice on Thursday and use Andrews at guard.

“I’ve been here for two months, and like I told coach when I first sat down and met him, whenever you need me, wherever you want me to be. I am going to excel and do the best that I can. I have been a swing left tackle, left guard, right guard, right tackle for the last few weeks. So it wasn’t a surprise.”
