Lawrence Tynes K TB Nov 03 '129 Comments
Giants K Lawrence Tynes is on pace to score more points than anyone in NFL history ever has in one season.
Tynes has 94 points in eight games, the season's halfway point. He's on pace for 188 points, which would top the record for any player (LaDainian Tomlinson's 186 points in 2006) and shatter the record for a kicker (David Akers' 166 points last season). The kicking record before Akers broke it was Gary Anderson's 164 points in 1998. Paul Hornung, a halfback and kicker, scored 176 points in 1960 while kicking 15 field goals and 41 extra points, but the Packers star also had 15 touchdowns.

Giants K Lawrence Tynes (quadriceps) was able to kick 25 field goals and eight kickoffs in Friday's practice.
Tynes "definitely" plans to play in the opener after going down in the first preseason game. We'll know the Giants are counting on Tynes if they cut Rhys Lloyd on Saturday (likely) and don't sign another kicker before Week 1.

Giants K Lawrence Tynes' (quadriceps) is up in the air for the season opener.
Coach Tom Coughlin indicated that the next seven days will be "crucial" for Tynes. The Giants will have to bring in another kicker if Tynes can't go because Rhys Lloyd is purely a kickoff specialist. Fantasy leaguers should avoid the situation altogether.

Giants K Lawrence Tynes' MRI showed only a bruised thigh.
Tynes will be in the trainers room "full time" this week, but he avoided serious injury. While the Giants may have to bring in a kicker to handle practice chores, Tynes has nearly a month to get ready for the regular season.

Giants K Lawrence Tynes left Saturday's preseason game in the fourth quarter after injuring his right thigh.
Tynes took a helmet to the leg after Panthers' special teamer Sean Ware blocked his field goal attempt. Though Tynes was able to walk off on his own power, it's never good news when a kicker hurts their primary leg.
