Alford Has Two Torn Ligaments:

From ProFootballTalk.com

As we’ve previously said, probably more than a few times, the top priority for the preseason is to emerge from the four games (five for the teams tapped to play in Canton) with minimal injuries.

The Giants picked up a potentially significant one on Saturday night, with defensive tackle Jay Alford reportedly suffering a torn MCL and a partially torn ACL.

According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the Giants will wait a couple of weeks before deciding on a course of action.  The options will be to hold a roster spot for Alford until he’s ready to play, place him on season-ending injured reserve, waive him via an injury settlement approximating the date on which he’d be fully healed, or cut him and figure out how many game checks he should receive via the injury grievance process.

Because Alford snaps for field goals and extra points, the Giants undoubtedly will sign a new long snapper as soon as possible
