Shockey Placed on IR with Fractured Fibula

Shockey hurt

The Giants, losers Sunday night to the Redskins at home, made it official on Monday, placing tight end Jeremy Shockey on injured reserve with a fractured left fibula.  Add to that Shockey also hurt his ankle, and will have to undergo surgery later in the week according to the team.  “Any time with a player of that quality, to lose him at any time during the season – it is a huge loss,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. “I feel very badly for him because he was, just as all our players are, excited about being involved in this time of the year with a lot at stake and a lot to look forward to. It is very disappointing that the injury occurred, and we all feel very badly that he is not going to be able to finish the year.”  Shockey is the Giants’ third-leading receiver with 57 catches for 619 yards and three touchdowns.
