New York Giants offensive tackle David Diehl underwent surgery to repair a broken hand that he endured for the later part of the season, including the Super Bowl. Diehl revealed the X-ray via his Twitter account of six surgical screws placed in his hand. "Well it's good to know that my hand and finger are fixed," Diehl wrote. "Does anyone need any screws?"

Diehl didn't miss any games due to the injury, starting at left tackle after William Beatty was sidelined for the season with a detached retina.
