NEW YORK – Hello Giants Fans, the team began the process of trimming their roster down on Tuesday by making some moves. Some of them are a bit surprising to me and other Giants fans but we will need to have faith in the front office and trust that they know what they are doing. The Giants got down to the 75 player limit by making these moves and have until this Saturday by 6 PM to cut down to the league limit of 53 players.
The G-men placed three players on season ending IR today. Those players include QB Jim Sorgi (shoulder), who was brought in to be QB Eli Manning’s backup once QB David Carr bolted the team in search of a starting role elsewhere. WR Sinorice Moss (hernia) was placed on IR and this might be the most suspicious move of them all. Moss is a heck of a guy, let me make that perfectly clear but his on field production just has not been there since he arrived in New York. How he continues to be on the team is nothing short of a miracle at this point. Finally, the last player to be placed on IR is rookie LB Adrian Tracy (elbow). Both Moss and Tracy have already had surgeries and will be on the road to recovery over the course of the 2010 season.
The final two moves involved the G-Men cutting rookie WR Nyan Boateng and placing OL Kevin Boothe on the PUP list. Boothe should be able to return by week six if everything turns out to be fine with his injury (torn pec). It will be interesting to see who makes the final roster come Saturday. One thing is for sure, the fans will go atomic if rookie WR Victor Cruz does not make the final cut. The Giants play their final preseason game this Thursday at 7 PM EST against the Patriots in New Meadowlands stadium.
Are you starting to get concerned about all of the injuries plaguing Big Blue so early on in the 2010 NFL season?
