Robbins, Cofield Undergo Knee Scopes

From NJ.com and the indispensable Mike Garafolo:

 

Giants DTs Fred Robbins and Barry Cofield have both undergone scopes on their knees recently, general manager Jerry Reese confirmed this morning at the NFL scouting combine.

“We expect them to be okay,” Reese said. “I hope it’s nothing major. I’m not a doctor. We’ll see where they are this off-season, but they should be fine for the season.”

I heard last night Cofield had a “complicated scope,” which likely means there was more stuff that needed to be cleaned out than expected. Remember, he missed the Week 17 loss to the Vikings after getting hit on his knee against the Panthers. He was likely hampered by the injury in the playoff loss to the Eagles.

Robbins had hand and shoulder issues last season. It’s unclear how much the knee was nagging him as well. Perhaps it contributed to his being held without a sack in the last 10 games of the season after recording 5 1/2 in the first six games.

Regardless of whether Robbins and Cofield are healthy or a bit limited, expect the Giants to look for help at DT in free agency and/or the draft.
